A personal post to our son on our first Mother's Day is on the blog today, as well as a hopeful prayer to the women in waiting. My heart waits with yours, regardless of this season. 💕
Do you ever feel like you're battling two sides of yourself? Maybe you want growth, but simultaneously rest. Maybe you want to pursue your career fervently, but simultaneously be committed to your family. What I've noticed recently, in my own heart and life, is a struggle with worth and purpose. Where am I finding the guidance to determine my purpose? Is it in quiet time with The Lord or in social media binges? When we begin to see our worth not in what we accomplish, but who we serve, our purpose changes. More thoughts on the Still Wandering journal this afternoon. 💕
Last week's launch of The Shop exceeded my wildest expectations, and I am so grateful for each of you! Because of this community, we were able to donate several hundreds of dollars to the #givegrace campaign for families walking the road of infertility. I am also excited to announce that @taylorsschumann was the winner of our print giveaway! Taylor, send me a message to claim the 8x10 print of your choice! 🎉
Nearly two years ago, this dear friend and I shared our hearts and stories in a blog post about infertility. I never could have imagined all the ways one vulnerable post would change me, the people those words would impact, the women who would come into my life as a result. Two years later, and we have those babies we prayed just to exist…mine in my womb and hers in her arms. That fact doesn’t change our stories. Just because we are in this new season, celebrating new life, doesn’t mean we don’t remember where we came from. The road to get here will always be a part of this story. It is this journey, and the women I've met along the way that have inspired me to launch Still Wandering Prints. The purpose of The Shop is not only to share my work, but to do so in a way that will directly benefit women like my dear friends who have struggled with infertility. I am honored to announce this collaboration with @scarletandgoldshop #givegrace campaign! A portion of the proceeds from each print sale will go to the Give Grace Foundation and will directly help ease the financial burden of families struggling with infertility. In celebration of The Shop opening, I'm giving away one print! To enter here, follow us and subscribe via the link in our page bio!
Oh, the waiting holds so many joys and challenges, so much anticipation. Tomorrow, the waiting ends. Tomorrow, we officially LAUNCH The Shop! Stay tuned for tomorrow morning. I'm so looking forward to sharing the heart behind this project!
