Considering A Birth or Pregnancy Ministry

I know the feeling of a ministry idea sprouting and growing inside you. I’ve had it myself, and I’ve helped many women nurture the idea into a successful ministry. Be encouraged, if you have an idea growing you you are not alone. But you may be wondering, “How do I make that idea a reality?” [...]

Christian Midwives International and Midwifery Today 2008

In 2008 I was ready for the full conference experience.  I was able to attend Midwifery Today because of a program that accepted students to work as room stewards. I wouldn’t be able to select what sessions I attended, but my expenses were much less.  I don’t have any photos because my husband convinced me [...]

Christian Midwives International 2007

As promised, I dug out my old files to find conference photos.  I hope I’ve selected some good ones to give you an idea what goes on at conferences. I think the first conference I attended was from CAPPA, possibly as far back as 2003, but I would not have taken any photos and don’t [...]

Looking Forward

In 2010, Tammy Ryan and I began this blog from our desire to provide information to expectant Christian families. While we still have a strong heart for the concept, we simply don’t have the time to devote to all the writing. So in comes plan B… We have decided to invite additional authors.  This provides [...]

Updating Lord of Birth

Today is the first day of a big summer project.  I will be updating the Lord of Birth, and if time permits I’ll also update 40 weeks.  This is a relief, and a sadness. A relief because the books were an amateur effort from the start — my personal prayer journals — that I only [...]

Willing to grow

I was reminded this morning how difficult it can be to actually be willing to grow. Growth brings change, and we are comfortable where we are.  Others are comfortable with us where we are.  Sometimes it feels like growth ruins everything. And lets face it, pregnancy and parenting is definitely a time of growing. I [...]
