Our Miracle

Over two years ago, on March 13th, 2017, we found out that we were going to lose our second baby to a miscarriage. I was 7 weeks along and I was devastated. I begged The LORD to save my child. I pleaded with God to breath life back into my unborn child and bring their dead heart back to life. He didn’t. It was one of the most painful experiences I have ever endured. I have not been with child since that miscarriage.

Until now!

On November 6th, 2018, I was shown my test results and told I have autoimmune disease. I was dealing with a huge list of allergies, past trauma, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and now, lupus. I knew my husband wanted more children, but I had lost nearly all hope of having the big family I have always dreamed of because of what I was living with and through on a daily basis.

But then, a miracle happened. After a day of prayer, repentance, and seeking The LORD, The Holy Spirit told me to go to Transformation Church. On my second and my husband’s first Sunday, an incredible couple asked to lead my husband and I in a prayer that changed the trajectory of my future forever! That prayer overwhelmed my body and soul to the point where I could barely stand up afterwards. I knew in my heart and soul that this couple was part of the fulfillment of what The Holy Spirit had shown me before telling me to go to Transformation Church. The LORD provided these faithful prayer warriors in a season when I was desperate for hope and healing.

Six days after that prayer, I was welcomed into their home. I was asked to sit in “The Love Seat” so that they could pray over me. For the next 33 minutes, nearly 40 men, women, and children prayed for me. Their prayers were speaking of my spine lining up in kingdom order, but they had no idea that I had mild scoliosis. They were receiving information about my needs supernaturally and it was incredibly moving. Then, words of prophecy and wisdom were spoken over me by many of the people in the room. Their words blessed me beyond measure. It was a surreal, supernatural experience. I truly experienced The LORD’s unconditional, unwavering love for me through these faithful children of God. During those 33 minutes, one person mentioned that I was in gestation. Another said she saw a house and a baby swirling. Yet another woman spoke of fertility. I assumed all of this was spiritual rather than physical because of how “sick” I have been for the last several months. At best, I was thrilled because I grow food and flowers and I was thinking, “My garden is going to be so fruitful this year!”

Those words were not only describing the spiritual fertility in my life! They were describing physical fertility! Not only am I with child, my hormone levels are excellent!

Zivah has been asking for a baby for so long! She is three and a half and she is already such a great helper! God has truly given her the desires of her heart with this pregnancy. We are praying for a supernatural pregnancy and childbirth so that her sibling gets here safe and sound. Please feel free to unite with us in prayer!

I can’t tell you what a joy it was to take these photos with my family. One of my best friends, Kristina, did an excellent job documenting this incredible answer to our prayers. You can find her on instagram or facebook! I am so thankful these moments are forever preserved for our family.

This next shot is so important to me because the balloons placed in order of “rainbow baby” in the background was my husband Alex’s idea. He is so creative and I feel so blessed to be his wife!
