It's the side that says you can't experience your pain or acknowledge your pain because someone has it worse. In several … Continue reading Momma’s Heart: the Other Ugly Side of Comparison
12:01pm. That's the time I finally got out of bed yesterday, with the exception of one time to use the bathroom, because, pregnant. The only food eaten by that time was about a quarter of a box of cheese-itz. Outside of pregnancy, I don't even like cheese-itz, and honestly eating just happens to feel like … Continue reading Pregnancy & Postpartum Depression & Anxiety – A Glimpse

Pregnancy is such an amazing time to share with … Continue reading Maternity Pictures, Comparisons, & 7 Bible Verses for My Pregnancy

In that moment, a brief wave of panic washed over me. Right up until they handed us the print outs with pictures of our … Continue reading Girl Mom (to be…)

But, I'm going to be brutally honest: So far, pregnancy just plain sucks - physically, … Continue reading Pregnancy: My Experience & 1st Trimester Must Haves
I recently (just now, actually), said goodbye to my first blog: AGAPETOS (over at candicejenee.com). God has recently been working on me about where my focus is to be, and as hard as it is to say goodbye to that platform, I know God was priming me for this one. Now, I won't be taking … Continue reading Announcement Time!
