Article on Radiantmag.com today

Two years ago, fresh into marriage, Jeremiah and I went through a major trial. Several months ago, I finally felt led to write about it and I submitted it to Radiantmag.com. They posted it today. Click here to read it. It’s called When the Clock Struck Two.

A Baby?!

In early February, my husband and I found out we were pregnant! We are just now letting the world know as our first doctor’s appointment was April 4. It was a wonderful experience. Our doctor is Dr. Steven Harris at Baylor Hospital. He has an incredible bedside manner and is very tenderhearted.

When he took the ultrasound, I believe our worlds were changed forever. When we saw Baby Krieger move around it made the idea that we are having a baby become reality. See, the doctor didn’t need to see me until week 12. I had to keep waiting and trusting that a living being was inside me and was growing healthy. I had to trust it was there, even though I couldn’t see it. It taught me a lot about faith in fact.

Baby Krieger is scheduled to arrive around mid-October (Oct. 17, give or take a few weeks). We have been very busy with our jobs, school, and ministry but everything is slowly starting to sink in and it’s exciting and life-changing. I’ve seen a change in Jeremiah as well as he embraces the fact that he is a dad (wow that’s crazy to say!). He is so joyful about it. My nephew, Parker who is almost 3 yrs. old, wants “baby cousin” to come right now. Everday his mind changes on whether it’s a boy or girl. My sister and bro-in-law who are living in NC are very excited as well, along with my dad and mom who will be “grandparents # 2.”

Here are the ultra sound stills- three different photos. As you can tell by the legs, he or she was very active. It was adorable.

So, do you think it’s a boy or girl? (Boys outnumber girls 3-1 in Jeremiah’s family and girls dominate in mine). Only time will tell!

Thanks for sharing in our JOY!

Rise and Whine

Focus on the Family’s January ’08 Couples Issue published my article, “Rise and Whine.” I had several people contact me and say they struggled with the same thing. I thought I was the only one. For real.

If you are polar opposites from your loved one in the morning, you will understand this article. You might laugh along with it. If you can relate, feel free to share an experience.

Don’t worry.

We’re in this battle together as we aim to make our marriage beds a better, sweeter place to wake up from.
