New chapter series


Choose life

Amidst the uncertainty

Amidst lack or poverty


Take those baby steps

Knees trembling

Yet moving forward

Square your shoulders

Dust your clothes off

Falling and stumbling

Is part of life


Give someone you have never meet a chance


Have faith

That all will be well

Believe God

Believe His word

That He will be there with you

That He will take care of you and your child


Step in to the unknown

Dear sister

Will you take courage?

Even if the path is unclear

No one knows what tomorrow will bring

Questions that only God can answer

What will become of this child?

If I choose life for them

If I choose to keep this baby

I am terrified,

I don’t have enough money, time, help, or space

I don’t have enough for myself let alone for a baby

My cross is heavy enough for me to bear

Yet I hear a whisper

This baby is yours! Keep it

Getting rid of it will not make things better

Step into paths unknown



In someone bigger

Someone stronger

Someone with shoulders broader that yours


How far can you see?

How much do you know?

Who can change ashes to beauty?

Believe in Him

Take His hand

Watch Him lead you

Into paths unknown to you

1 Kings 17:14 (ESV)

For thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, ‘The jar of flour shall not be spent, and the jug of oil shall not be empty, until the day that the Lord sends rain upon the earth.’”
