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 Read More

The enemy is so sneaky in they way he lies to us and gets us to start doubting the goodness of God’s heart and intentions towards us (especially in the area of birth). He did it with Eve…”Did God really say you would die? He just doesn’t want you to become like him. He’s actually holding out on you. His intentions towards you aren’t as good as you think.” Eve bought the lie and greatly suffered as a result. And sadly, we often buy it too. The enemy is still Read More
