Our Birth Story


























If you or someone you know is expecting a baby, read the following so helpful prayer for that small miracle that will soon be here! I did, and am so glad I did.

Prayer for my Baby

My Lord and Redeemer, 

Inside me is a sanctuary where You abide. Inside my womb you fashion our child and define every feature. The thought or Your work is more than I can comprehend, and yet, I delight in knowing that You are here, I have seen pictures of babies in the womb, and I am amazed at Your work. My child at each stage of development is such a marvel.

I smile to learn that the first organ to function is the heart. Would a lesser designer have begun with the brain? And so, I ask for my baby, that its heart will be perfect. Four flawless chambers beating in perfect sync. From there I envision the rest of the body that has just begun: spinal cord, lungs, and brain. Oh Lord, our Creator, please complete each detail with precision and strength.

As the face and limbs begin to form, please grow sturdy bones and sound muscles. Make her eyes much stronger than mine. give this dear little one ears that will hear for a lifetime. Give her a strong mind that will serve as an oasis for truth and wisdom. Lord, please oversee my baby's growth. Give our child legs to run and arms to hug. Fashion hands that are skillful, yet loving. I trust You to provide all that is needed.

Remember my baby until she's complete. Keep her safe inside until her time is appointed. I have faith because You are the maker of all, You stretched out the heavens, and spread out the earth. (Isaiah 44:24) Your presence gives me peace. I will wait patiently while You work.



25 Must-Have List of Items Needed for Your Newborn Baby

Update 2006 - How wonderful God is to have allowed us to conceive our first child. I remember that hospital visit to give birth to my daughter like it was yesterday!

 I remember praying "Lord, You are my refuge!" over and over again! Adding that as a sinner I deserved no special treatment, but if I could ask for one thing, it would be to bring this child to the world with full pain yet quickly.

  He was kind to me and allowed me to give birth within two and a half hours, isn't that a miracle!?! God does answer prayers and that is just one of many He has granted me. I cannot say how many times He has responded, but I know it is MANY MANY MANY. 

So I shall forever be grateful and obedient to Him, our God, the maker of us all. He is my light, my salvation, my deliverer, my rock, my fortress, my redeemer. I love my God and my Savior for granting me the wishes of my heart. But let me just add that He hears me, and not just me, but you too wherever you are, when I purposely follow His will, instead of mine. READ MORE ABOUT MY FAITH

Philippians 4:6: "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God."
Psalm 34:15-18: "The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous and His ears are open to their cry. The face of the Lord is against evildoers, to cut off the memory of them from the earth. The righteous cry, and the Lord hears and delivers them out of their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
1Thessolonians 5:16-18: "Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is Godís will for you in Christ Jesus."

My Faith


You say you don't have time to dedicate to our Savior? Read on and see.



I knelt to pray but not for long

I had too much to do

Must hurry off and get to work

For bills would soon be due

And as I said a hurried prayer

Jumped up from off my knee

My Christian duty now was done

My soul could be at ease


All through the day I had no time

To speak a word of cheer

No time to speak of Christ to friends

They'd laugh at me I feared


No time -- No time too much to do

That was my constant cry

No time to give to those in need

At last it was time to die

And when before the Lord I came

I stood with downcast eyes

Within His hands He held a book

It was the BOOK OF LIFE

He looked inside the book and said

Your name I cannot find

I once was going to write it down

But never found the time.
