Losing a baby surely is one of the more difficult experiences of life. As my daughter Kalyn and her husband Adam recently suffered the loss of their preborn baby Kate, our family entered into a journey thru grief (What Esther Kate Taught Her Grammy) that is continuing to draw our hearts closer to the one who is holding our little baby Kate now.
We have been blessed to hear from so many of you as you have prayed and supported us through this season. Today, I am pleased to announce that the Lord is already beginning to use this experience for His own glory. Recently Kalyn began sharing her story, her thoughts and her new experiences with her Heavenly Father on a new blog called Mommy's Heavenly Dream.
Last Friday's post was so helpful for everyone's spiritual walk, I had to share it with you. Wow, our God can take every tragic experience in life and work it together for good!
Perhaps you know someone who is/has suffered a pregnancy loss or is walking through some other sea of grief. This blog could be a real treasure for them. As a mom supporting a grieving family, I am learning so much.
Thanks Kalyn for allowing us to take a peak inside your heart ....... We see the power of Jesus and are so blessed!

It comes to me as my soul feels like it is giving way and my mind is exhausted.
I felt impressed to do a Bible study on the word. I wanted to find a verse to meditate on where God is described as the sustainer. This is the first one that jumped out: (read the rest HERE)

Esther's Story Part One - November 24, 2012 was one of the best days of my life. It was the day we found out we were expecting our second child. Ironically, it was November 24, 2010 we had discovered we were expecting our first daughter, Kyla! We knew this wasn’t coincidence. God was bringing this second child into our family at just the right time and we felt so very blessed. (continue reading. . .)
