Baby Kicks

I’m a little over 18 weeks pregnant now! I’ve been feeling the baby kick for a couple weeks, and I feel like I’ve been so wrapped up in life that I haven’t really taken the time to appreciate what a beautiful blessing that is. My baby is alive and well, and I can feel it.

I’ve been listening to Stephanie Nielson’s audiobook again. I feel such a close connection to her story… I’m not sure exactly why. I wasn’t in a plane crash that burned 80% of my body, and I haven’t dealt with the physical struggles that she’s had to deal with. But I relate so much to her mental struggles. The anxiety, depression, and faith all fighting for her attention at once. I have felt that, especially lately, and I enjoy hearing her perspective on it and hearing about what things helped her make it through. I love how much she adores her responsibilities as a mother and homemaker, and how much she adores her family. She is a rare breed of beautiful, and her story inspires me and reminds me that the Lord helps us do hard things.




Isn’t this tunnel amazing!? He’s been working so hard on it for days. I love that he loves working with his Dad on our property ❤️
