We are so excited to announce that we have begun our journey of trying to conceive. As most of you already know, I had trouble conceiving on my own (in the past). Last Sunday we had a visiting missionary and his family with us in service. He asked all the ladies who couldn't conceive or had trouble conceiving to come to the front for prayer. So myself and another lady in our church came forward. He prayed for her and God touched her in a mighty way! He then laid hands on my belly and commanded that my ovaries begin working in the name of JESUS! I felt the power of God hit me so strong and I knew in that moment the Lord healed me. On top of this beautiful miracle, the Lord filled my husband with the wonderful gift of the Holy Ghost!!!!!! He was baptized very shortly after that ~ Thank you Jesus! God has done some great things in our home and we are so excited about serving Him. We are excited about giving our son a sibling. In my pregnancy with Jacob, I didn't really document much (I totally regret that now). So this time around I am documenting everything from conceiving to giving birth and after. We want to include all of our family and very close friends in this journey. Keep us in your prayers that it won't take too long to get our BFP (Big Fat Positive ~ pregnancy test).

Summertime At Our House

Our summer days have been filled with lots of sunshine, playtime outdoors, crafting, harvesting veggies and fruits, and the birds cheerful songs. Here are a few photos I want to share with you of summertime at our house.

We have enjoyed so much this summer (so far), God has been good to us and His blessings are so bountiful! I pray your summer has been equally enjoyable. God Bless!

One of my many favorites of Jacob and daddy. My baby has grown so big, my how the time flies. My two favorite boys! Definitely an older picture but still so dear to my heart.
