There is a purpose for our wait. Whether we know the purpose on this side of Heaven or not, rest assured my sweet friends, God is carrying out a work in you.
My name is Elizabeth and God revealed to my husband and I in his oh-so-beautiful timing that his "no" for us to have a second child was actually a "yes" to adopt our sweet son who was always destined for our family!
My pastor said recently that "God's NO is not a rejection, but a redirection." Our theme verse throughout our adoption was Ephesians 3:20. "He is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or think..." If we are honest with ourselves, we all are waiting on something. Or we might be experiencing a "redirection" in our lives. It may not be related to having our children, but rather a job, a house, change of schedule, health issues, etc. In my case, it took 5 years and 3 angel babies to get to our son.
We finalized our sweet Malachi's adoption last week and I'm now craving the connection with other mamas. I want to share the hope that God gave us through this adoption and the peace we have in resting in his plan. God showed off in the details of our adoption and I'm just so thankful for my tribe.
Malachi's birth mom personally placed him in my arms when he was 2 hours old and she even attended our finalization hearing last week. God has blessed the hearts involved with peace.
We chose "Able" as Malachi's middle name to represent that God was and is able. My husband and I would have never thought we could adopt, and look at us now! A family of four.
To God be all the glory!" _______________

My names Ana Nelson, I’m 27 years old and I’m a happy wife and Mama.

My life has been nothing short of crazy, amazing grace. Hint my name “shefoundgrace” because when I was 16 years old I got pregnant out of wedlock to a non-Christian while my parents were Pastors.
At the age of 16 I became a mother and a wife legally and ever since my relationship with Jesus has kept growing. Jesus forgave me, loved me and took me from the deepest hole I had dug. He reached my husbands heart 4 years in to our marriage when we almost got a divorce. He has so graciously paved a way for our children to know him through us. Without Jesus we would not be where we are. We have three beautiful children now, a decade of love and Jesus to keep this family going.
Being a mother has really opened my eyes on loving, teaching and disciplining in light of eternity. Every child the Lord has blessed me with has been an adventure that teaches me a whole new thing about who God is and the beauty of womanhood and how it turns in to motherhood.
His grace was enough for me, for my sins, for my young pregnancies, for my young marriage and it continues to leave me breathless and in awe of Gods work in a person like me.
As I get older and I look back, motherhood has looked so different in many ways and I can’t wait to see what God has to teach me more on motherhood. All glory to God!!! ________________

QUESTION: Tag a mama who inspires you! 👇🏽

I often call my children..."my children." And I often take care of my body and talk about my body like it's "my body." Something that's changed everything and that I have to constantly remind myself is that this isn't my body and these aren't my children. It is all given by God and when I decided to serve God, I agreed to die to self and give my life to God. That means He calls the shots, not me.
This can be so hard yet so peaceful. When my body is my body, the pressure is on me. Pressure to be perfect. Pressure to be enough. Pressure to do it all. Pressure to make the right decisions. But when I submit my body to God, He takes over. He takes the pressure off and all i have to do is joyfully and peacefully trust Him to lead me, heal me, provide for me, and make me enough.
When my children are my children, my mind becomes consumed with worry, stress and anxiety. The what ifs consume me. Their protection, joy, health, futures, and provision falls on my shoulders. What a hard life to have six little futures riding on my ability. But God! When I call them God's and give their lives to God, the pressure is off. It's no longer my ability that determines their future. It's God. There's so much peace knowing God's in control.
It's so simple yet so hard. We want control until we can't handle the control. We will have moments of fear, anxiety and selfish intent but God's grace will come in and remind us that we are His. Our children are His.
The life of a Christian requires sacrifice. A sacrifice of control. A sacrifice of self. There's no greater reward than the hope, love, joy, peace and life of Christ.
Are you still living in the anxiety ridden life of "my body" and "my children?" If so, it's time to die to self and live in the abundant life of belonging to God. There's no other way to live.

Luke 9:23
And He was saying to them all, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.

Hello all! My name is Krista. I’ve been married to my main squeeze Ryan for 3 years, and we have a 16 month old little guy named Asher. These boys are both such an incredible blessing in my life. They uplift me, challenge me and make me a better human everyday.

People say that being a mother changes you forever. While I wholeheartedly agree with this, I would also say that God has changed and shaped me through my journey to and through motherhood in ways I would have never expected.

I am a planner and a goal setter. So when we struggled to conceive our little guy, I had a difficult time with not being able to achieve a "goal" I was putting my all into. When we finally conceived, we were led on a journey of threatened miscarriage, NICU adventures, and putting our babe into the hands of capable surgeons just 3 short months into his life.
Let's be honest. If I would have laid out a plan for how these past few years would have gone, I'm going to be real and say - it would not have been this. But through it all God has encouraged me to let go of control and trust in Him more than any other point in my life. He has also prepared me through this journey for the journey of motherhood - where try as we might, we just can't control it all. Sometimes we've just gotta lift our hands and give it up to the one who can - and trust that He loves and knows our hearts better than we do ourselves.

As a mother of four (ages 5-15), I have experienced the most beautiful joys of life. I have also experienced the struggle to get out of bed as the dark days overwhelmed me. Learning to leverage those dark days has been one of my greatest blessings.

Isaiah 45:3 says, “And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness – secret riches...” I have come to discover there are priceless treasures, jewels and gifts that I can ONLY receive in the darkness. They are not available on the mountain top experiences of life. So if I beeline out of the dark seasons because it is awkward, lonely, or difficult, what precious gems will I miss out on?
I can honestly say these dark moments of life have defined who I am today. When I think about the biggest lessons I have learned, the greatest character building times, and the sweetest moments I have had with Jesus, all of these point back to these difficult seasons. Had I maneuvered my way out of it (which we all can do), I would not be who I am today.
God loves us so much that even when we squirm our way out of that storm and miss out on the treasures He so deeply wants to give us, He will allow us to get into another pickle so we have another opportunity to uncover His hidden treasures.
I don’t know about you, but for me, I want to learn my lesson THE FIRST TIME so I can move on to bigger and better things. I don’t want to spend my life circling the same mountain while never moving upward. I don’t want to keep repeating the same paragraph, I want to finish the chapter and move on to new adventures.

So if the scenery of your life looks the same year in and year out, you may want to ask yourself some tough questions and start searching for the riches around you.

When I had my first son the first few months were very hard. I felt I needed to be this supermom and have it all together. I shouldn't be crying this much.
I wished and prayed for rest. Night after night I would pray that my son would just sleep and that these sleepless nights would end. I prayed that God would just change my baby to a sleepy baby.
But it was me who needed a change. In a moment I realized I wasn't supermom or some superhero, but God was super and he can do the impossible if I just gave it all to him.
My prayers changed to "God help me and prepare me for whatever this night brings" And that's when things got easier.
My son still didn't sleep through the night and the nights were still rough but something about giving it to God was what made it easier.

God has taught me that I need to give it all to him whether it's in motherhood or being a wife or in everyday life. When I let him lead, things come together and he can give me rest and strength to face battles!

Hey! My name is Shannon. I'm married to my best friend, encourager and partner in crime. I am Mama to a sweet yet sassy 16 month old little girl who is strong, independent and loves adventure.

I am passionate about my family, friends, lifestyle blogging, individuals with disabilities, baking, traveling, Jesus...oh, and bargains....I'm a sucker for a good bargain! Some might call it being frugal...I call it being thrifty!
As a full time working Mama, I find that I am constantly trying to juggle of all of my irons in the fire. There is no way to do it all and to do it WELL.
At times I feel like it takes everything that I have to simply survive. But, Jesus is teaching me that there is so much more to life than just surviving. As believers we are called to thrive, to grow and to encourage others to do the same. I want to be intentional about seeking joy and more importantly seeking Jesus, even in the hardest of places.

What are some words that come to mind when you think of motherhood?

Exhausting? Patience? Overwhelming? Gratifying? Joy?
I would agree with you 100% along with MANY other adjectives, but over the past 4 years of raising two strong-willed, energetic little boys, the Lord has opened my eyes and my heart in the best way.

Through this life-marathon called motherhood, I've experience many failures and with that, came three words that have lifted me and strengthened my faith through Christ:

Grace - as women, we feel that we need to do it all, am I right? From morning hustle to evening activities, and everything in between... and doing it ALL over. again. tomorrow. (thank goodness for whiteboards, sticky notes and planners!) But ladies, its OK to say no. This is the beauty of grace and the grace God first bestowed on us. We were not created to do it all, and that is why we have each other. Give yourself grace day after day after day.
Compassion - first and foremost, show yourself compassion. Be loving and tender towards your needs: physically, emotionally and especially spiritually. His word is fuel. Love yourself the way God sees you and it will overflow to others.

Strength - the enemy will attack from all sides. When I hear strength, I think of Ephesians and how we are to be equipped with the Armor of God. When I'm feeling overwhelmed or tired and under attack by the enemy, I revert back to God's word because, in my weakness, He is strong.
So mamas, remember whatever season you're in today, He is able and good. He IS your strength.

QUESTION: What's your favorite Christian Song?

Hey! My name is Carley. My dream job was always to be a wife and stay at home mom. I feel so blessed to get to be doing just that.
After having a daughter of my own I feel like I finally understand what a sacrifice it really was for God to give up His only Son. Being a mother has opened up the word even more to me and I find myself leaning on it more. I am so thankful for God giving us a living word that can speak to us in new ways every day!
This past week everywhere I have gone I have been confronted with the word forgiveness. Why is it so hard for me sometimes?! There are a few situations in my life where I just want to continue to be hurt or mad instead of experiencing the freedom of forgiveness. It is so easy to forget how much we have been forgiven. I have been challenging myself to remember that each day.
Nothing in this world is unforgivable because the ultimate price for our sin has already been paid to forgive us. Surely I can forgive when I remember the cross and how much I have been forgiven. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is FREEDOM! - 2 Corinthians 3:17
