I’m so excited to share our recent birth story with you! I had asked God for an easy, daytime, two-hour labor filled with laughter, and He answered every one of my prayers! Truly every part of this birth was such a gift from Him and I was in awe afterward of how He showed up.

I pray that my story encourages your heart to know that birth doesn’t have to be full of toil and labor, but that with God, it truly can be full of ease, joy, and peace.  He is a good, good Father who will meet you in your own unique way during your own birth and give you exactly what you need!

Here are the resources I talked about on the show:
