What has been one of the most painful seasons of my life has also been one of the most joy filled. It’s a bittersweet dichotomy. The beauty alongside the pain. They go hand in hand.
I wouldn’t have Eliyanah without the loss. I wouldn’t have Ezekiel without the shameful journey of pregnancy before marriage. The pain, the shame, the guilt, the questions, I’d do it all over again. A million times over.
I want to connect women in what could be one of the most painful and isolating experiences of her life. I don’t want you to suffer in silence; to question in isolation. I want to help you wrestle well through the valley, with each other.
We need each other. We really really need each other. We weren’t meant to ride through the waves of grief alone. We weren’t meant to hide our questioning of the very foundation of our faith. We were meant to wrestle together; to fight together; to sit in the pain... together.
No matter where you are at in your journey, you are welcome here. If you’re questioning your faith, you are welcome here. If your faith in Jesus has never been stronger, you are welcome here. If you’re angry at God, you’re welcome here. If you’ve walked away from the faith, or never had any to begin with, you are welcome here. You are welcome here.
I want this to be a safe space for you, as you wrestle through one of life’s most difficult turns. I want you to find healing here in this community, regardless of what healing looks like to you. I want you to be loved and accepted regardless. And in the process I want your sweet little ones to be remembered.
We remember alongside you, we wrestle with you, we sit with you. We get it. We get the pain, we get the heartache, we get the confusion. And even still, we choose to hope with you.
