I first found out about Ashleigh Slater through a great webzine for young women called Ungrind, which she is the editor for. Over the past few years, the articles on Ungrind have been a warm cup of coffee for my soul and I love the ministry Ashleigh has through it.
Several months ago Ashleigh miscarried her fourth baby girl Noah. Her husband wrote about their loss here on Boundless. Noah was due right around the time our baby girl is due. Ashleigh’s loss really opened my eyes to just how precious life is and Who is ultimately in control.
As part of Ashleigh’s healing process, she made this beautiful quilt for baby girl Krieger. This quilt is so special because of the story behind it all. Because of the hands that made it. And I was so surprised and overjoyed to found out last week that Ashleigh is expecting again!
Thank you Ashleigh- this quilt will be one of our most treasured gifts in our family for years to come. You’re continually in our thoughts and prayers.
GIRL!!! Jeremiah told our Doctor that he will have to get a gun and go ahead and declare bankruptcy! They had a good laugh together (and I totally know what he means!). Well, baby girl Krieger will be the first granddaughter on my side of the family and I think John will love being a big brother to his little sister.
She was pretty busy as you can see in her sonogram. Her little hands were found near her face and in her mouth quite a bit. It became so real for me seeing all the movement and knowing that she’s a girl. She is already a masterpiece, fashioned by her Creator God:
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. – Psalm 139:13-16
