Just a girl, redeemed by Grace. Wife to my best friend (12 years!), infertility veteran, and a former foster momma. I always have time for a cup of coffee, a chat with a friend, or a good book. This blog is a tiny glimpse into my heart that beats for God. My desire is to declare His love and draw others to Him.

We have a unique story. One that’s full of beauty and heartache, ashes and redemption. And we’re smack dab in the middle of it. Our future looks so uncertain, so veiled and mysterious. But we serve a big God, a Father who loves us and cares for us, no matter what. So we cling to that and choose to trust Him.

“The deeper into the heart of God I go, the more the enemy will oppose me, but the more God will draw me. The enemy may be strong, but his strength is limited, whereas God’s grace has no limit.” A.W. Tozer

  1. Hi Kendra, a friend told me about your blog and I was intrigued. I’ve been married to an awesome man for 11 years now and we also battle infertility. I’ve had 3 early miscarriages that resulted from expensive treatments. We both are still devastated, but not yet defeated. I commend your courage to write about your personal journey. Tears blessings and heartaches and all. I know how tough it is especially in the Mennonite culture where we are expected to have children. We are the only ones in our family and circle of friends who are childless anymore and it is so tough some days…So here’s wishing you peace and joy as you travel this lonely journey, may God bless you richly. P.s. I am always looking for friends in my situation 🙂

    • Hi Anna, it is so nice to “meet” you! I’m so sorry for your losses, and that you also have to walk this tough road of infertility…but I’m so happy to have a new friend that understands! We are also the only ones left in family & friends to not have children and it does get lonely. Thank you & God bless!

  2. Oh, Kendra! I didn’t realize you are dealing with infertility! My heart goes out to you. My husband and I struggled with infertility for 12.5 years, and we were given little to no hope for ever having a baby of our own. GOD, in His infinite love and mercy, opened my barren womb for one moment in time, and He sent us a precious son who is now 14 and the sunshine of our lives and home. May God do the same for you! Don’t ever give up! God’s power transcends man’s diagnoses and medical wisdom. God is able to do anything! Praise His wonderful name! I will be praying for you that God will give you a baby of your own.

  3. Hi Kendra! I am wondering if you could contact me through my email? I have been diagnosed with endometriosis and married 3 1/2 years. I have so many questions. Thanks!
