“Surrender” was the theme the Lord kept putting on Melissa’s heart as she prepared for the birth of her first son. So throughout the pregnancy, she sought to bring to Him and surrender each situation that arose, all her plans, and the desires of her heart. 

As she leaned into Him and trusted Him each step of the way, He blessed her with a beautiful pain-free birth that exceeded her dreams. It was such a lavish love gift from Him that she says she’s still not over it to this day. 

I pray you are encouraged and blessed by her story, knowing that God has a beautiful love gift to pour out on you as well during your own birth!

You can connect with Melissa at [email protected] and here are the resources she recommended: 

Kingdom Childbirth Class – My online class that Melissa took that dives into God’s heart for birth and how to partner with Him throughout the labor to enjoy the gift that He created birth to be!

Redeeming Childbirth – A book filled with wonderful birth testimonies that Melissa gleaned a lot from even before getting pregnant. 

The Christian Childbirth Handbook – Another book Melissa read that has lots of great nuts and bolts for labor.

The Business of Being Born – A great documentary on birth in different settings and the pros and cons of each (hospital, homebirth, birth center). It’s a must-watch for all expecting mamas!

Mama Natural – Another believing mama who has great birth testimonies and whole site dedicated to helping women have a natural, healthy pregnancy and birth. She’s awesome!

I pray you are so blessed by Melissa’s story and these resources! 

To your beautiful birth,

One Word That Could Make All The Difference In Your Labor

 “I’m in labor!” one of my friends recently texted me. And as I started to pray for her, I immediately had the thought, Why do we call it labor? What if we called it co-labor instead?

Like what if she texted me and said; “I’m in co-labor!” Because truly that’s what God created it to be. And that’s the frame of mind we want to have as we enter the wild journey birth.

Labor is what came after the fall; a labor and toil that God never intended us to experience. But co-laboring is what we were truly designed for; what the Garden of Eden was all about. God gave Adam and Eve work to do but it was to be done in a joyful, intimate co-laboring with Him.

TOGETHER they named the animals.  In perfect fellowship with Him, they tended the garden and ruled over the earth. In Holy partnership with Him, they would be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. As Adam co-labored with God while tending the ground, there was joyful fellowship and fulfillment. As Eve would co-labor with God in bringing forth children, there was to be a similar joyful fellowship and fulfillment.

In co-laboring there’s no striving. No fear. No toiling. No pressure. No lack.

It was only after the fall that Adam and Eve experienced separation from God and suddenly found themselves “laboring” in their work instead of the peaceful “co-laboring” they were created for.

But Jesus bridged that separation for us and restored God’s original intent for perfect fellowship and co-laboring. So that can now be our experience once again! But we can miss it if we still see ourselves in a season of needing to “labor, toil, and strive.”

So what if we changed our language to reflect the truth of what’s available to us now?

What if we said, “I’m going into co-labor!” And as we said it, it served as a powerful reminder to us that we are not alone in this beautiful journey of birth.

What if we used it as a declaration that we are going to peacefully co-labor with God, our husband, our baby, and with peace, rest, surrender, and trust.  

What if served as a reminder that we will end up co-laboring with something and that we have already made a decision that…

We refuse to co-labor with fear. We refuse to partner with control. We refuse to co-labor with discouragement or worry.

That with all our heart, mind, and body, we choose to co-labor with God. With joy. With peace. With our baby. With excitement. And with Heaven.

I’ve already decided that with our next birth, I’m going to call it “co-labor.” I’m going to ask my husband, friends, and birth team to use that word as well.

If a friend calls me, I want her to ask “Are you in co-labor yet?

I want to call my husband at work and say “I think I’m in early co-labor!

I want my midwife to say “Looks like you’re in active co-labor!” 

And I’m excited to see how that word and the frame of mind it puts us in will impact the “co-labor” and birth!

I encourage you to embrace and use this word too! Our words are extremely powerful and this one word could radically impact your pregnancy and birth experience!

Proverbs 18:1 says “The tongue has the power of life and death and those who love it will eat its fruit.”  So let’s use our tongues and the language we use surrounding our birth to bring forth abundant life, the Kingdom of Heaven and all that’s available to us!

To your beautiful “co-labor” and birth,

Kierra

10| Becky: A Newborn’s Supernatural Healing

Podcast | February 9, 2017 | By

Becky

With her first birth, Becky leaned on more on the doctor’s advice than the Holy Spirit. But in her following two births, she learned to rely more and more on Holy Spirit and to birth her children into God’s peace and presence.

And after her first newborn had a terrible vaccine reaction, Becky shares the beautiful testimony of God’s supernatural healing and faithfulness and the miracle that their little boy’s life is today.

God is so mighty, so present with us, such a good Father and so faithful. I know that so many parts of Becky’s story will challenge and inspire your heart and faith.

You can connect with Becky at [email protected] and here are some of the resources we talked about in today’s episode:

Supernatural Childbirth: Becky soaked in the Scriptures in this book during her third pregnancy and they made such an impact in her labor and birth!

Holy Spirit Labor Relaxation Album: A powerful album to soak to as you prepare for your labor and birth. It’s full of Scriptures to renew your mind, birth affirmations, a Holy Spirit relaxation exercise, labor practice for you as a couple, and a powerful Jesus encounter. (This album is also included when you take my Online Kingdom Childbirth Class).

Mommy Baby Soaking Album: And album full of life-giving Scriptures to peaceful background music. Soak to it as you nurse, sleep, and cuddle with your newborn. I know moms who played this album constantly in the room when their baby was sick or had a serious injury and watched their baby be miraculously healed!

The Vaccine Friendly Plan: A great book to help you make informed decisions vaccinating your children and other newborn procedures the hospital will push on you. It’s extremely thorough and covers the risks and benefits of each vaccine and procedure and which ones he recommends at what age and which ones to avoid completely. A must read for all parents so you can make informed decisions!

I pray you are so blessed by todays episode! Thank you Becky for sharing your beautiful heart and testimony with us!!!

Much Love,

Kierra
