Only One Could Have Ever Predicted This 

I am still in grateful disbelief. No one could have ever predicted this.

No one.

Except of course the author of my life Himself. The Creator of the Heavens and Earth (we can agree to disagree on this point if needed) ;). The One who chose me to be their mother

God Himself!

I am excited to share with you all that I now have a reading plan published on the YouVersion Bible app!

I searched, emailed and hustled for months trying to figure out how to submit a reading plan, as they have not been accepting submissions for a while now. I was unwilling to accept that there were only 3 infertility reading plans and I finally received an email back. Within a couple of weeks I got the email saying they accepted my plan and would be launching today, perfect timing for National Infertility Awareness Week!

I did not fight my way into my faith until after our infertility journey.  I know faith is hard for a lot of us, especially as we are trying to survive and thrive through and after infertility. But, as I have written before, I think it is important for us to have faith in something.

For me, this is faith in Jesus Christ as my savior. Trusting the plan God has written for me, even in those times I don’t really like it, and doing the work to find my place in it. I can’t wait to share my full faith testimony in the next book.

For now, I hope you find this reading plan helpful. And, as I already had a client say to me, “Infertility or not, it kind of applies to any struggle.”

Yep, hard is just hard.
