Merry Christmas from my crazy house to yours!
When You Need to Remember. This Sunday at church, we enjoyed a casual, family-style service in which we expressed our gratitude by sharing our God Moments—stories about times when God has shown up to reveal His love or to see us through hard times. I cried like 18 times, because our God is so good.
It was one of those wondrous times when you can actually feel your faith growing. We heard about…. The next morning, they walk up to the school hand in hand, join the back of the registration line, and are immediately greeted by the girl standing in front of them. Can I be your friend?
But years pass. And then in her fifties, God opens up a dream job…in Africa. She and her husband spend years there strengthening a small church. He also asked for a brother and a sister.
Within two years, God gave him all three. This week as we continue to thank God for blessings big and small, I encourage you to take a moment to look back on your life.

How has He shown up to reveal His love for you? Image courtesy of congerdesign on Pixabay. I have a forever place in my heart for other women who have shared in the suffering of infertility and pregnancy or infant loss. When Sarah suffered two miscarriages, she wrote and prayed her way through the pain, and as God brought healing to her heart, she turned her loss into a ministry to help other women who have loved and lost. Life is filled with griefs of all kinds, and writing and praying through our pain is a powerful way to heal.
Sarah has generously offered to give a signed copy of her book to one blessed reader—please join us on Instagram this week to enter the giveaway!

Mourning is an expression of sorrow. Simmering can be good. A steaming pot of soup perched atop the stove. Chopped carrots circling the diced potatoes. Basil releasing its aromatic magic. But simmering can also be bad. Especially if words of negativity or sadness bubble within our souls. Do you ever let thoughts brew in your mind for too long?
Thoughts of shame or anger. Thoughts of fear and disappointment. Thoughts of sadness and longing. Writing forces us to acknowledge truth. Even if that truth is painful. After my two miscarriages I started writing my story. Death is worthy of grief.
What Is Your Experience with God? -
And grief must be mourned. Writing also provides us a place to process our internal dialogue. To make sense of the madness. To grieve.
leondumoulin.nl/language/magazines/deadpool-1997-2002-17.php Many people, myself included, report that writing helps us to finally know how we feel. If you keep a closed pot simmering on the stove it eventually boils over. The same is true for our thoughts. If we repress our internal dialogue long enough we eventually erupt. Can I tell you something? Writing my stories of pregnancy loss was emotionally taxing.
It forced me to revisit painful memories that I would have rather numbed. But writing my story—and owning my emotions—helped me move forward. The paper was a safe place I could be vulnerable. To speak the unspeakable. This mere act of expressive writing is healthy for our souls. Unpack your mind and put the words down on paper.
Mara Wilson, ‘Miracle on 34th Street’
But your story also includes glimmers of humanity. Remember the goodness that other people have displayed. The sorrow they showed. The hugs they gave. Keep your words private or make them as public as you desire. Share them with a confidant or tuck the papers into a secret place. I warn you…you will write about things that are tough to admit. It might take you a few hours, a week, or even a year to finish writing your story. You might not ever even finish. Your paper will be tear-soaked. Expect this challenge to be painful, but also expect it to help ease your mind.
I wrote this book to accompany you on this journey. Use these prompts to get your mind focused. Just write a bit if that is all you can accomplish. Perhaps you are reading this and have faced a type of grief other than pregnancy loss. Write through that trauma.
