A blog post that helped to heal my barren soul:

BarrentoBeautiful: How I Found Joy During Infertility

When I was at a very low and dark point in my journey, God’s grace allowed me to come across this post written by an incredibly beautiful and faith-filled woman. I resonated with her description of a  barren soul that affects us far deeper than our physical bodies. And in my longing for soul-healing, I wondered if it was even possible to be truly joyful again, without my circumstances changing.

Finding this blog by Rebekah gave me hope that God is in the business of transforming barren souls. And I found a lot of freedom and the beginning of joy, as I followed her example and began to thank God for the life circumstances that He has allowed. I cannot thank this woman enough for sharing her story and for the way God used it to encourage me at just the right time in my journey.

A book that has helped me heal on my journey:

Promises for Today & Hope for Tomorrow: Finding Light Beyond the Shadow of Miscarriage or Infant Loss
Hope for Today

After realizing that I was stuffing down and blocking my emotions regarding my miscarriages, I recognized that I needed a way to actually process through my grief. By God’s grace, I came across this treasure of a book. The journal questions inside have been a huge aid to help me process and continue to work through not only my grief but also my relationship with God. I keep a stack of these books in my living room, to give out to anyone I know who has had a miscarriage.

This youtube channel is a resource for Christian songs in sign language, as a way to share the Love of God. I love the songs that Grace chooses to sign, because of how real and meaningful they are.

How can I know for sure that I’m saved?

Is It Real? 11 Biblical Tests of Genuine Salvation

Is it realThis is a subtle, lingering question that undertones many of our conversations about God. Sure, I can go to church and nod my head when people ask if I’ve accepted Christ as my savior. But what about those times when I still have that nagging feeling that makes me wonder if I’ll actually be in heaven… This free online pamphlet outlines clearly what the Bible says about salvation, and gives solid truths to stand on when you’re grappling with the question of “Am I really saved?” It gives you the tools to have a confident “Yes” to answer that question. The first time I read this, I was very convicted. And I continue to re-visit it because of how encouraging these truths are to my faith.

An excellent option for infertility care:   NaPro Technology

I recently started seeing a NaPro doctor and learning the Creighton Model to determine the causes of my multiple miscarriages, and so far am extremely impressed and hopeful.

NaPro Technology is a nation-wide, evidence-based assessment and treatment method.
NaPro uses the Creighton Model, which is a super in-depth way to track and assess what your hormones and health are doing over the course of multiple months, and then from there you work with a certified NaPro doctor who can provide specific and comprehensive treatment. I love that I can trust my doctor to not recommend any fertility treatments that would make me morally uncomfortable.
