Journal excerpt—

The morning after our sweet gender reveal has me somewhat full of peace & nostalgia. Asking The Lord to show me/lead me where He wants me in the Old Testament as I think about how we’re gonna have another GIRL!

What High Providence, Lord. I’m a little sad because I so desired a boy BUT I trust You. And I trust we need all girls right now. Hopeful for a boy one day and thankful You give what we need over what our desires tell us we need.

Raising women was always a fearful thing for me— my heart doesn’t want them to be as I once was but knowing we’re raising them to be ARROWS beckons me to chase after You harder— to be so consumed with You so my girls can see an example of a holy + pure woman of God. But I can’t do that or any of this without You & Your Spirit.

I desire so immensely our girls to be women of YOUR kingdom and not of this world. Help me to point them to You always and to raise them up for Your glory.

Thank you for three precious little girls— for giving us a purpose HIGHER & greater than just “having children”!

May You be glorified in our hearts, in our homes, and wherever You lead us— I love You, Abba. Thank You for sanctifying me and for giving me the Way into Your family.

I love being Your child.
