The Struggle is Real

Today I urge you to listen to this heartfelt radio segment where four women share their journey to motherhood.  A special thanks to Stacey Sherrell the host of Friday at Five on WGCV 620 am a Glory Communications Station. Also thanks to the women who had the courage to share their story.  I believe that many will be blessed by this segment.

 

 

Sincerely,

Schrendria

Faith

FAITH-the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).  I recall learning this definition as a child and it seemed so simple. I also recall the infamous illustration of a mustard seed and thought “piece of cake.” All I need is faith the size of a mustard seed (which is really small) and I’m set for life in the faith department.

Little did I know that as an adult my faith would be challenged time, after time, after time, in an area that seemed so SIMPLE. A husband and wife come together and a child is born right. WRONG!!

Although we now have three beautiful children the faith walk is not over.  Everyday we all must walk by faith (parents and non parents).  If you are believing God for a child take it from me-you never know how long it will take to have a child/ren.  You don’t know what you will have to go through to get them here.  You don’t know what conditions they will have once they get here. You don’t know what they will develop along the way after they are here.  Are you ready?  Are you ready for yet another faith walk?  Begin praying, fasting and believing now for the best possible outcome.  I understand why many parents pray for their children everyday before they leave the home.  I understand why parents pray for their children every night before they go to sleep.  We never know what tomorrow holds.  Thus, I’m glad I know who holds tomorrow.  I’m praying for you.  I’m praying for your situation. I’m praying for your children. Please do the same for me and mine.  And remember, without FAITH it is impossible to please God.

A Father’s Love

Happy Father’s Day!  Today is filled with love and laughter in many households. However many children will never utter the words Happy Father’s Day and many men who would make good fathers will never hear those words.  There is no love like a father’s love. Although men don’t sit and talk about it, there is such joy in being a father and many good men are waiting to experience that joy. Today I salute all the fathers and pray for those men who are still waiting to experience fatherhood. 

I thank God for allowing me to bond with my father for 38 years!! I love the relationship he had with my first born son and hate that my twin boys wont be able to meet him. Missing you dad!! I know you are in a better place.

Finding Support During Loss

Sometimes we do not get to choose our paths but a path is chosen for us.  I appreciate the support and encouragement extended to me as many of you learn more about our story. Please know that I am simply fulfilling the call placed upon me by sharing with others.

Please check out the video below and join the movement. There are so many things you can do to help: you can pray, become more sensitive in your conversations, help us spread the word about this work and invite us to come and speak to your group or congregation.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Almost Here

I can’t believe it.  Our little guys are almost here.  On Tuesday, June 3rd, I will be 37 weeks pregnant with twin boys.  I can hardly wait to meet them-Caleb and Kyle.  As happy as I am that they are almost here, I also have to admit I’m a bit nervous.  See it’s hard to believe that I will have a total of three boys after having three miscarriages.  This has been a very difficult journey not because of the physical toll of carry twins, but because of the mental reminder of my past.  Everyday I should wake up excited to be carrying twins, but that is not the case.  I wake up praying that there are still two heart beats. I keep cold water by my bedside so I can constantly feel the kicks every time I take a sip.  I hold my breath and say a prayer every time I get an ultrasound.  You may be saying hey what is wrong with being prayerful—-Nothing.  However 90% of my actions stem from the fear of my past.     But every day I am more hopeful.  I am constantly quoting the scripture, “I believe, Lord help my unbelief” Mark 9:24.  The closer we get to a full term pregnancy the happier I am.  I believe that soon and very soon I will be writing a post about my happy, healthy baby boys Caleb and Kyle.  Pray for me on this journey and I will do the same for you.

Testimony

“As I look back over my life and I think things over.  I can truly say that I’ve been blessed. I’ve got a testimony.”  These popular song lyrics by Rev. Clay Evans were brought to mind this week as I spent time sharing the Baby Please! movement with thousands.  I’m honored to have appeared on a local television news show called Friends at Five with my friend Darci Strickland and  on a local radio show called Friday at Five with my friend Stacey Sherrell.  Both shows gave me an opportunity to reflect on my story and realize why I must continue this journey.  Three friends from the Baby Please ! movement joined me on the radio show and I was in tears as I heard their stories again.  As one of the ladies stated there are no coincidences just divine connections.  I am so glad that you have connected with this blog.  It is my prayer that others will find hope and restoration through these stories.  “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony. . . . .” Revelation 12:11

Our Story

Once Upon a Time ……… and  Happily Ever After; are phrases that generally make up a good story. If we slow down from the busyness of life we will notice that everyone has a story.  Sometimes our stories end with Happily Ever After and sometimes it’s To Be Continued.  What’s your story? Have you ever thought about how your story may help someone else?   Consider the following: 1.   Don’t be afraid to share your story.  2.  Share your story only when you feel the time is right.  3. Be prepared for ALL feedback as a result of sharing your story.  Everyone may not like your transparency or understand why you are sharing your story.   Here is a small portion of our story.  Be Blessed.

The Journey to Mother’s Day

Tomorrow many will observe Mother’s Day, which is one of the most celebrated holidays of the year.  Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms and mother figures!  Unfortunately, each year millions of women are unsuccessful in their attempts to become moms.  Today, I say a special prayer for the women who desire to become mothers and give you a sneak peek into our story.  I have decided to cut this video into four segments so please tune in each week to get the entire story.  I also encourage you to ask others to follow the blog.

Anyone who follows the blog before midnight will be entered into a drawing for a Coach Wristlet.  Winner will be announced on Mother’s Day.    Win It! Win It! Win It!

So check out the video.

Follow the blog.

And inbox me on Facebook if you desire to become a member of the Baby Please! Group.

Also I want to send a special thanks to Visions Made Plain Media (Daryn Murphy).  I was selected as the winner of his Facebook contest which allowed me to receive this complementary video.

Think Before You Speak

Let the count down begin!  It’s one week until Mother’s Day, which is one of the most celebrated holidays of the year. Many have made plans, bought gifts and if you wait much longer there will be slim pickings on the greeting cards aisle.  Blog posts are intended for those who follow the blog, however, this post is not for the followers of Baby Please, but I’m hoping  it will reach their friends, family, church members and co-workers.  As we prepare to celebrate Mother’s Day please think of those who desire to have children.  On Mother’s Day think of those who may have had miscarriages, failed fertility treatments or stillborn babies.  On Mother’s Day think of those who are on pins and needles waiting for the adoption to become final and praying that the birth parents don’t change their minds.  On Mother’s Day Think Before You Speak.  Please don’t walk up to women/couples and say things like “what are you waiting on,”  or “you are not getting any younger”.  You don’t know the struggles, heart ache or pain that person has endured.  Let’s stop putting so much pressure on women/couples to have babies and let’s start praying more for them.  As we prepare for Mother’s Day, Class and Family Reunions, Graduations, Father’s Day and all other festivities that will bring us together this summer, please remember to Think Before You Speak. The Struggle Is REAL!!
