Speak Your Mind



  1. Wow, congratulations! You guys are so blessed and 2015 looks to be an amazing year!

  2. Congratulations, Beth! I’m so happy for you and yours! My love story is just a plain ol’ boy-meets-girl kind of thing, but it’s similar to yours in that I was almost sure it would never happen…not to say that I’d accepted that with the grace that you had. 🙂 After living as a divorced mom from the time my kids were 4 and 2, I just wasn’t sure I’d ever find The One without doing some major settling, and settling’s just not my nature. And then, there he was. And just like in the movies, we knew. And now he’s my husband and a fantastic partner and the absolute love of my life. I feel like he’s been my best friend forever, and at the same time these last 3 years have flown by in a blink. Life is so good. <3

  3. Congrats! God is so good!!! 🙂

  4. Yayyy!!!! Congratulations sweet friend, I am so happy for all of you1!!!

  5. Diane Taylor says:

    Sooooooooo happy for you Beth. Seriously God is so faithful!

  6. So excited for you Beth! My love story was a chance meeting of my husband 11 years ago-we ran into each other twice in Charleston SC during his brief one week visit from Italy where he was stationed in the Army. We kept in touch with letters and emails and 2 months later I went to visit him in Italy and never came back!

  7. I can’t say CONGRATULATIONS enough!! Not only are you blessed because of a new baby, but because you chose to leave it to God who knows your heart. Here’s my story of faith and babies: http://www.prodigalpieces.com/2015/01/all-work-and-no-play.html

  8. Sooooo happy for you!!!!!

  9. SQUEE!!!!! Congrats!!

  10. oh my goodness!!!!!!!!!!! i am SOOOO happy for you!!! i don’t really have a great love story, but i will give you a sweet story from when i first fell in love with my husband.
    background- he is shorter than me by a couple inches- that is important to know.
    i met chris when i was in my senior year at wake forest…. i did not have a great college experience and just wanted to graduate and move on. i was raped my sophomore year and its impact lasted in the way i viewed school and relationships. chris and i worked together and were friends first. a few months later it was clear he wanted more. i was attracted to him and very fond of him as a friend so decided to go for it…. i was very hot and cold with him as i struggled internally. i wanted to get out of school, plus i had all these issues with relationships and men…. finally, one day, i said to him, i was going to try harder, that i really loved him, and i told him my past and why i struggled so much in my dealing with him….. i told him i had a lot of “baggage”. his reply to me was “i may be little, but i can carry a lot.” and that was that for me. 🙂

  11. I KNEW IT!!!!!! What an amazing God we have! I believe in miracles for you and your family. Congrats precious friend!! Love you!!

  12. Congratulations to you and your family!

  13. God is soooo good and ALWAYS faithful! Congrats on your newest blessing!

  14. Congratulations to you and your family!

  15. WOW, tears are running down my cheeks…..God is good no doubt!!
    I don’t have a love story about myself but my daughter and son-in-law are
    finally pregnant with their first one. Took them 5 yrs. so miracles do happen.
    Your story sound very similar to theirs. Oh I am soooo thrilled for you all.
    Again, God Bless you all~

  16. Congratulations!! So happy for you and your family!!

  17. The warmest of congratulations to you and your beautiful family. So very, very happy for you!!!

  18. How is it that I’ve known this for a bit now, but still cry every time?! Life change lotto, my friend, but it wasn’t luck because you worked hard to find this path and to open your heart to big changes. You have never failed to impress me with your bravery.

  19. Congratulations!! I am so happy for you!!!!!

  20. Debbi Saunders says:

    Congratulations! I so wanted to see your video but could not get it to open. God Bless you and your family in this wonderful new chapter in your lives !

  21. Your good news story and miracle are very similar to my youngest daughter’s. This brought tears to my eyes. Congratulations!
    As for our love story…J and I found each other, when we were nearly 40 years old. We met through one of his high school friends. At some point in time, we were dancing, the music stopped but we continued dancing. It was magic…at that moment we knew. That was in the Fall of 1982. We’re still dancing. Our hearts had been broken and together they are mended. For us, as that old song says, love is lovelier the second time around.

  22. WOW! I wasn’t expecting that kind of announcement!! Congratulations! So happy for you, Friend!

  23. Congratulations! Your video was beautiful, inspiring, and filled with love. I’m so glad you shared this news via video. The impact of sharing your faith and your joy was contagious. After I watched the video, I said a prayer of thanks to God for the way He has worked in your life and the way He led you to share your news and your testimony. You and God couldn’t have done it any better. Again, congratulations.

  24. Congratulations to ALL of you! So excited for you! xoxo

  25. Oh my gosh, I knew it, my heart told me this. I gotta go boil some water. There’s a baby on the way!. Nothing makes me happier then seeing good things happen to good people …… and babies….yeah that’s me deal more babies!

  26. Oh Beth! This is wonderful! What a blessing! And anything else I can say with exclamation points!!!!!!!!

  27. Oh my goodness – such happiness!!! Congratulations to you and your family! Children are a blessing from the Lord!

  28. Just had to pop in for a quick second to let you know how happy I am for you! I can tell from this blog what a special special person you are and I love it when good things happen to people that…..deserve it. Exciting journey that we are all looking forward to sharing with you in 2015.

  29. Congratulations!

  36. Brenda Thompson says:

  37. Nancy Bartko says:

  39. I’ve never commented before, but this was such wonderful news, I had to! I am so happy for you and your family. God is so good! I don’t have a love story quite like that, but I decided to move half way across the country and so many good things have come into my life since making that change.

  40. Oh my!! This is great! I’m a lurker most days, but you have made me cry this morning with this news. Congratulations, honey!!

  44. Silk Flower Arrangements says:

    CONGRATULATIONS BETH !! You hit the nail on the head about letting go of control. When we take that leap of faith away from the life of anxiety, space is opened for miracles to come in. The leap is sometimes big, but often just a change in perspective, a breath, a glance, a sound. Here’s to your future!!

  45. I love you “)

  46. This is just so wonderful Beth! It brought tears to my eyes! My love story began 22 years ago on Father’s Day. My grandfather, who I loved deeply and never went a day without seeing him was taken off the ventilator and passed away. I called my best friend and asked if she could come pick me up from the hospital but she hesitated because she had company. I asked if she would just bring them along and us go out to eat somewhere. I needed to get my mind off what had just happened. It was at this moment I believe my grandfather led my soon to be husband to me. Tim was there along with some other friends and that’s when we first met. The day my grandfather died, I met Tim. We married 2 years later and will be married 20 years this year. I truly believe my grandfather was looking out for me. Tim is such a wonderful husband and we are just as happy as we were 20 years ago when we married.

  47. Awwwww, Congratulations! What an amazing bit of news! I wish you and your family all the best in this already fantastic 2015!!!!

  48. Goose bumps!

  49. Congratulations!!

    As for the answer to the your question, I don’t have a love story… :/

  50. This is my love story of God’s love for me. I too experienced infertility. We tried the treatment until I just could go no further emotionally. I had God’s promise “that he make th the barren woman to be at home and to be a joyful mother of children”. Still no children ever came until………..I was 48. (That is not a typo). Through a set of circumstances the door was opened for us to adopt. We requested preschool children however, we were given an infant boy. We named him Matthew (God’s gift) one year later the phone rang again. Another boy 3 days old and would we like him? We named him Samuel (asked of God) The age requirement in our state is age 50 for a newborn. I came in just under the wire. We are blessed with two healthy boys! God knows our frame and his timing is perfect. We are two very active parents and enjoy God’s gifts to us.
