I worked for a few months (July 19 – Dec. 20, 2012) and it just wasn’t working for me, too long hours! During that time i was with my sister during the birth of my niece, it put a whole new perspective on my lil world! When I saw the support she got from her husband, my heart was filled with compassion for young girls that have to go through that pain as a young girl with no husband or possibly even family at her side, I could not imagine! And the thought of them having an abortion rather than facing all that scariness alone whirled in my head…. Someone needs to be there for them!! And lots of people thought that me watching a birth would scare me out of becoming pregnant, well, I don’t really know why, but it didn’t, yes it looked crazy painful, but the miracle of it excited me. And it took away some of the ‘unknown’ for me and just put a passion in me, I would stand through that again with anyone just to give them the support to make it through! I just figured it would affect everyone that way, that they would stand up n support anyone during a delivery, but I guess not, some of my friends were like, uh they wouldn’t wanna be ‘paid’ to watch someone else go thru it, it’s bad enough going through it for themselves! My one friend was like, Go for it, you would be good standing beside someone at a time like that. But I didn’t want to go after it just cuz I’d be “good at it”. But I asked, “God, is that something you would want out of me”? And so God started prodding me…
a lil peek into my life
I'm Julia-- married to farmer Dan. And yep, we're the 25-something year old Sweethearts over here in a tiny one-light-town in Tn. I absolutely love being married and doing life together with my hubby. I love Jesus and love loving on people-being Jesus to them! Also maybe a bit of a social butterfly. I will admit to being an organizing-freak. I enjoy playing with photography. We are on a ttc journey & we are full of hope, knowing that God is scripting our story, but the struggle to hand over that pen to God is very real. January 2015 God called us to minister to kids in foster care & we are very passionate about sharing Jesus with them. To keep my head & heart calm I have notes all over my house and journals everywhere I go..so my blog is an overflow of all of the above, bits and pieces of my heart and our journey..I would love to connect with you and hope you stick around! We are so blessed..
