This is your season, do it right and don’t let anyone tell you to do it differently than by the standards set by your Father. ✨
Patience is a virtue. Purity also. Refraining from sexual relations until marriage is not wrong, it’s actually right. ✨
And submitting to God’s will... the absolute best. ✨
[background context to keep in mind for this picture: she is alone, relaxing, got nobody around to look at her and just comfortably reading a book- there is no sexual context here ☝🏽, just a little FYI for those wondering or for those who would think I just gave them a license to behave inappropriately] ✨

My sister in love (law), Raissa sewed my wedding dress from scratch!
About 2 months before my wedding, her husband (who was very instrumental in David & I’s life & wedding planning process ) passed away. Our world came crashing down.
But I still can’t even imagine the pain my sister in-law felt/feels.
——————————————————————————David & I insisted that she’d take a break. I already found random dresses online for me and my bridesmaids (I legit stopped caring about my wedding at that point, many can attest to this lol) but she refused (we’re both stubborn lmbo).
She sewed at least 60% of the guests outfits, my moms outfits, every dress I wore and both of my bridesmaids dresses. ——————————————————————————-
The morning of my wedding, someone broke the zipper on my wedding dress (chileeee...yes). Raissa walked into my hotel room, praying. As she fixed it, she was still praying. She wouldn’t speak to anyone, just kept praying. I knew she wanted to cry, but she held her tears in until the zipper was fixed.
When I’d visit her, there were days where she’d cry for hours yet still with tears in her eyes she’d finish 10 dresses in a day... she’s not human. —————————————————————
She’s my role model. Her strength reminds me that there is no battle too big for God’s children.
I’ll cherish this dress forever; But I cherish the woman who’s hands refused to give up, despite the pain even more.
Please thank her for me! She finally created a page for her business!! @konuho_knh “Konuho” was the name of her husbands clothing line.
I know he’s watching over us, and I know he’s extremely proud of his wife❤️. #KonuhoBride
Feels like yesterday that I became this boy’s Mama! 💙 And I just realized as I type this sweet boy turns 17 months old tomorrow. Seriously where has the time gone? I’m sure Mamas out there are thinking the same thing as you send your babies off to another year of school. It’s like I don’t know if I should sob the baby stage is over or smile for joy as I watch him grow and learn! I’m so proud to be his Mama! He is kind, funny, polite and loving! But definitely knows how to push our buttons! His Dads for sure! 😆 The 5 years we waited for this boy were so hard and seemed like I would never become a mom....But I gave it to God and he blessed us beyond measure! Hugs to you out there struggling to become parents. I remember that pain all too well but please keep the faith. God has a plan for each and everyone of you! Just sometimes those plans take longer than we would like. But I can tell you the wait is definitely worth it! #webeatinfertility#carsongreymcneil#baby#babyboy#boymom#letgoletgod#worththewait

As if I needed another reason to celebrate you...Happy Rainbow Baby Day sweet boy 🌈❤️🌈❤️ To all the Mamas (and Dads) waiting for their time...hang on and hold tight to each other. It’s a rollercoaster that I promise is worth riding. .
To all those who have suffered miscarriages, pregnancy loses, fertility struggles, and any other struggles/loss associated with pregnancy, you are not alone.
For those who don’t know, I suffered two back to back miscarriages within 4 months of each other. Many feelings came over me as you can imagine and all we ever wanted was to start a family. It is devastating and has you question everything.
Each of our stories are different, but know you are not alone and will get through this.
Everyday I feel grateful for this boy and know that everything happens for a reason 💙
Sending all those who need it, hugs 💗
Don’t give up hope 🙏🏻🌈👶

I’m finally back!!! 😭 This is nothing more than a HUGE life lesson, which taught me to value myself more...in comparison to getting involved with a person, who didn’t treat me as I should have been. It was a tough journey so far, but I’m taking baby steps 💛 Thank you for waiting for me 🥰 #newhairnewme#worththewait#imattermore
Happy National Rainbow Baby Day 🌈✨Celebrating the miracles with all your rainbow mamas and praying for those of you who are still waiting ❤️ A friend once told me she reminds herself often “control what you can control”. So much of getting pregnant is out of your control. Take a deep breath and trust God. He knows exactly what He’s doing 💕
It's National Rainbow Baby Day. A rainbow baby is a baby born after a miscarriage; the rainbow after the storm! I wouldn't trade a single tear or heartache for this wild child! We love you so much Jace and BLESSED God gave us you 💙 #rainbowbaby#blessedbeyondmeasure#worththewait
Swipe ➡️ to see how my FLESH wants to react to foolishness. Versus how my SPIRIT convicts me into responding. Y’all know there’s a BIG difference between a reaction & a response, right? 💕
A reaction is often knee-jerk and based on instincts, survival, and...you guessed it...EMOTION. A response on the other hand is usually carefully thought-out, strategically executed and prevents emotions from running amuck. 💕
Yeah yeah, I may be rough & tough around the edges/on the exterior. But ya girl is sensitive, ok?! But...I do not have time to let my emotions take over my life! I have to maintain a hold on my emotions. And recognize the safe spaces that I have been given to be vulnerable. 💕
So, a big ole ugly laugh is one of the ways I allow myself to release some of those emotions. Cuz really, I’m working on being less bothered by foolishness aka distractions. Be honest...do you normally react or respond to obstacles? Talk to me!⬇️

“Have faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will come smiling through”
I’ve seen so many posts on people’s rainbow babies. I began thinking does Chloe “count” as a rainbow as I did not carry her? I think she is. Earlier this year another adoptive mama had this discussion and the people who took her poll said no. But I believe that a rainbow baby is whatever you the person who has gone through probably their biggest hardest trial believes is their rainbow.
Chloe is the most beautiful rainbow, our hearts ache for our 4 Heavenly babies and she is not a replacement for the love we have for our other babies, BUT is our baby Rae of sunshine that created the biggest brightest rainbow we could ever have imagined.
I do not know about you, but I UTTERLY--like almost too much--ENJOY my solo dolo time😍😆😄😉😎. It is a must, it is a dire necessity!!!

If you cannot enjoy your own company, well...😮😆

—— NBD, my big sister heart is just weeping 😭 because baby girl is officially all grown up & starting her first days in PA SCHOOL.
Like, I’m not quite sure when time started moving so fast, but if we could slow down & go back to the days that I mama bird fed you apples, I wouldn’t necessarily argue with that.
Ily so much & I’ll always be your biggest fan. Never ever forget how worthy you are of all you’ve ever dreamed of & worked for sissy. You are capable of huge things in your life. And I can’t wait to get my first IV 💉put in by you 😜
