Resting_In_His_Word_Wednesday.JPG

Two years ago we were anxiously awaiting the arrival of our third baby boy, a child so many medical professionals told me would never live to experience the warmth of being held in my arms.

Two years ago, I sat on the couch, feeling him move inside of me, replaying those words that the doctor told me that day the pregnancy test was confirmed:

“Well Mrs. Boring. It seems as if you are pregnant just weeks after chemotherapy treatment. How would you like to correct your mistake?” 

Yes…my mistake.

That was the moment that continued to roll through my head, repeatedly over the nine long months I carried our miracle child. Crying on most days. So fearful that one day the movement would suddenly cease or that the fetal monitor wouldn’t pickup that heartbeat my heart yearned to hear.

I just recently started sharing our story through conversations with others and my Toastmasters group. A few days ago, a friend and very talented author Gail Swinson asked me to share a glance into our story as part of her “A Mother’s Love” book launch facebook party. Today, I would like to share the first video I made for this special occasion. It’s a glimpse into that very day I feel in love with a baby boy, praying for God to do the impossible, again.

[tweetthis]God doesn’t move mountains for us to watch from a distance. No, it’s time to share our testimony.[/tweetthis]

 We have witnessed God do the impossible. He will do it again. 

Part 2 coming next week.

Bethany, What a joy to be your neighbor at Kristin’s today. I am so grateful for being able to meet you here–for your beautiful voice of encouragement. I loved hearing the first part of your story in the video. Your light shines right through the screen, sister. Bless you as you continue to love people, showing the light of the Father in you to everyone who reads your words and hears your voice and sees your face. Beautiful.

    Bethany says March 4, 2015

    Jennifer – Thank you for your words of encouragement! I want to be a light, but real. I’m still trying to get comfortable with the video portion, but I have a passion to connect with other ladies in a way that is authentic. Your words were so encouraging!

Way to be courageous in welcoming women in and sharing your story!

    Bethany says March 4, 2015

    Wendy – This is something I’ve felt called to talk about for a while and God just opened the door! Of course, He always opens the perfect door in His timing!

~Karrilee~ says March 4, 2015

Oh how I love you, friend! Rejoicing with you in the goodness of our God! Truly – nothing is impossible and that makes me think of sweet Ann Voskamp and how she prayed at If and how she said that we are the ImpossABLES… yes! In Him, yes – we are!

    Bethany says March 4, 2015

    I LOVE that!!! I’m so borrowing that quote! Which book is that in?

I have goosebumps listening to you. What a warm sweet woman you are! I loved seeing this video. This is a beautiful story. This is so encouraging reminding us that God is in control and that we shall not be afraid. Thank you for sharing your story. What an awesome God we serve!

    Bethany says March 6, 2015

    Tasha – You are so encouraging my friend! Thank you for your kind words!

Dr. Michelle Bengtson says March 4, 2015

Beautiful Bethany, actually beautiful. He is the giver of all good gifts. You are an inspiration!

    Bethany says March 6, 2015

    Yes He is the Giver… Love your words there!

Amanda says March 5, 2015

Thanks for sharing your story. My friend got pregnant by mistake and the doctor asked her if she wanted to have an abortion. I went to the same military hospital and thought it was odd they asked me if it was a planned pregnancy? Since I said yes the conversation ended, but now I know why they asked, it makes me very sad.

    Bethany says March 6, 2015

    Oh Amanda – I’ve been amazed at how many others have encountered this question too. There are so many issues in that one question, right? Yet without it, I wouldn’t have met the most amazing medical team ever. Thanks so much for sharing. Powerful.

April Boyer says March 5, 2015

Wonderful, compelling, heart-touching story. I look forward to seeing your book.

    Bethany says March 6, 2015

    Thank you April! I can’t wait to connect with you more my friend!

Laura says March 6, 2015

You are such a strong woman, Bethany, and you are going to touch so many lives with your story. Keep shining His light, friend! 🙂

    Bethany says March 6, 2015

    Thank you for your kind words! I love reading your story too!

Natalie Busch says March 6, 2015

I wasn’t able to watch the video until now, but I am so glad to hear your story. What a testimony!

    Bethany says March 6, 2015

    Natalie – That means so much coming from you! Thank you!
