Hi Stephanie!

So glad to meet you! Thanks for stopping by my blog. And thanks for the head's up.

Your survey was funny! I enjoyed it.

Your story is also compelling. I am aspiring writer and quite sick of the word aspiring. ARRGHHH... I do have an article I wrote for a book in progress that happened to no longer be in progress once my article was finished. Well, that was a mouthfull.

The article is on my youngest daughter, Sophie. She is a tubal-reversal baby. The article was intended for a chapter on believing God for great desires.

I'm saying all that to say this: I need to get back to it. Polishing it up and submitting elsewhere as I want to encourage women who have a desire for children.

While I do not relate to the problems of infertility and that that alone entails, I understand the desire of the heart for a child. And I want to encourage you in yours as well. I truly believe that yearning comes from HIM alone. And believe once we find a written promise in His Word, and seek for His confirmation (as I do understand sometimes things beyond understanding happen...or should I say "don't happen")...HE WILL grant the desires of the heart.

I pray with you that your desire will be granted sooner than you think....

Many blessings,
Rena Gunther

I'm glad you filled that out, Stephanie. I loved hearing more about you. If we lived closer together, I'd say we'd totally need to go out for pizza and ice cream!
