Why blog?

I would first like to thank my friends who read my personal journal for inspiring me to create this blog.

I gave in to their urging and decided to create a more public, faith based blog. This blog will also focus on infertility. I would like to make it clear that it is my hope that this blog will provide hope and comfort to anyone who has ever dealt with infertility (directly or indirectly).

So let's get this started....

Who am I?
I am a late twenty-something Christian woman struggling with infertility.

I have been married to my wonderful husband for nearly five years.

We have been trying to have a baby for over four years.

I am diagnosed with PCOS and ultra-sensitive hypothyroidism. As of this time, I am yet to give birth to a living baby.

For a while, I was quite angry and upset with God.
In fact, angry isn't even the appropriate word for it.
I was down right infuriated with God. Ask my Pastor, He'll tell you.
I've struggled with the "why me" and "God is torturing me" type thoughts.
I'm stubborn. It took a while for me to realize that God truly does have a plan for me and it is not my place to question HIS Works.

Infertility has changed my heart, my soul, and my faith.

To some (you know who you are), my faith is an inspiration.

This past Sunday (Easter Sunday), I went to my "home" Church and began thinking about the urging (also known as peer pressure) of my friends. I thought about how journaling helps me. I then thought about the possibilities of keeping a faith based (and then some) journal for all to read.

This journal is a work in progress. I look forward to writing, reflecting, and growing. I also look forward to seeing where this journal takes me. And of course... I look forward to reading comments. :)
