I started this journey in infertility feeling so alone. Like no one knew or understood what I was going through. What my husband was going through. What it was doing to the two of us. For some couples, that pulls them apart. For us, it made us stronger. We are dragon slayers, he and I. And I am one lucky girl to have him at my right hand, handing me a silver sword and facing this beast of infertility with me.
It wasn’t until about three years ago that I truly learned about the amazing infertility support group that is out there on this great big web of the world. And it was through blogging that I found a woman who would be like a sister to me. A fellow infertility survivor. A warrior woman with a spirit and a heart for Jesus and serving others. She’s one hell of a writer too.
I have cried with her over her words and we have supported each other in this crazy world of writing. She is a wordsmith, and artist and seriously one of the best people I know. And I am so stinking proud to announce that she’s written a book specifically to cradle your heart in her words and wipe away your tears of loss and frustration.
Lisha wrote the heart of this labor of love over a 30 day blogging challenge. Since then she has shined and polished The Process, The Promise: a journal for infertility prayer to a beautiful image of love and redemption. I’ve lost myself in this book and I know that you will benefit from reading it as well. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never lived through infertility or don’t think you know some one who has-this book will change you.
In honor of National Infertility Awareness Week, I’m giving away one of her beautiful necklaces that she has designed for adoptive mamas. Spirit Mamas as she so lovingly calls us. As an adoptive mama herself, she is well versed in what it is like to go through the paper pregnancy and has experienced all the feels that go along with it.
To win one of these gorgeous necklaces, leave a comment below sharing how infertility has effected your life. From you personal experiences to those of friends, family or loved ones. Let’s share the love this week and spread awareness about infertility.
Don’t forget to go on over to Lisha Epperson’s blog and give her some love!
