My Story of Miscarriage



I have felt compelled to post this for quite a while, but wasn't really sure how to do it. I mean this is about as personal as it gets, and to just post it publicly on my blog didn't really feel like the most tactful way to go about it....however....the outpouring of input and advice and support I have received from all of my other personal blog posts made me realize that I've already put myself out there, so why not give you guys the full story. Plus the Lord has really shown me lately that He gives and takes away for a reason, to bring Himself glory, and if I don't point to Him at the end of this then it's in vain. And how can I NOT point to Him?


So here they are...the stories of my miscarriages. They are pretty graphic and straight forward. I wrote all three of these posts at once knowing that one day I should share them. Feel free to read, feel free to skip over and ignore, I wouldn't blame you either way. I just want people to hear my story and see how the Lord has changed my life and changed my story. I know not everyone wants to talk about their miscarriages, and that's fine. This is just how I cope. Please feel free to contact me if you have experienced miscarriage and need someone to talk to.

Swim lessons

So.....Lucy finished her swim lessons in June, and it has taken me THIS long to post it on the blog. We took several different videos during the lessons, but Mark compiled segments of them into one video. The first few seconds are her very first lesson...you can tell she didn't like it very much. It's amazing to watch her progress though. At the end she had to pass the lessons by turning onto her back to float fully clothed. Niki was her instructor and she was amazing. I would recommend these lessons to anyone with a baby or toddler.
