I decided to write a book after the birth of my fourth child because honestly, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I had worked so hard towards my VBA3C. It seemed weird, even with four kids to not have something to work on and prepare, besides normal life. My heart was overwhelmed with God’s goodness and love for me and I knew I wanted to share more of not just my story, but I really believe this is all about Him.

Turning Point

Have you had a turning point in your life? Where you just knew things would never, ever be the same?

My water broke. My dress all wet. I threw it into the washing machine and just stood there. Looking at my familiar washing machine. That I used every day, multiple times in fact. It seemed so familiar to me, that washing machine. But what was happening to me in the moment, was not familiar. I was in labor and about to attempt what I was told not to.


As I stood there looking at the washing machine, I realized the next time I used it, I would be a different person with a new family member, a new life. I felt sadness come over me as I let go of the familiar life I knew. The safe feeling it gave me. I let go of my fears in that moment and allowed myself to walk out of the laundry room ready to walk into something new.

A new life. A new baby. A life that wasn’t lived in fear.


I didn’t know the scope and the weight that day would carry. But it was a turning from my old life and a deliberate “Ok God. I am trusting you with this new thing.”


Have you had a turning point? Where He spoke to you? Such peace in those moments. Monumental. Life changing.
