Barren No More ...

A dear friend of mine sent me a list of verses when she found out we were TTC (trying to concieve). I keep the list in my Bible and reflect on these verses daily. The majority of you that read this blog are either TTC, pursuing or considering IVF, have had or are still dealing with infertility, or have loved ones that fall in one of these categories. I thought all of you would really benefit from this list, so listed below are the verses that focus on God's gift of being a mother:

Genesis 17:15-21
Genesis 25:21
Judges 13
1 Samuel 1:1-20
Luke 1:5-25
Romans 2:11
Deuteronomy 7:14
Psalm 113:9
Hebrews 11:11
Mark 11:24
Hebrews 11:1

I hope these verses will comfort you and give you peace as we look forward to seeing the precious little children He has especially picked out for us.
We will be barren no more...

Just found out a co-woker has started down the IVF path. I am going to direct her to your blog. I am almost betting these verses will be so much more than just words to her! Thanks for sharing & having such a positive attitude to those who are struggling. Wish I would have had a friend like you to go through the IVF circus with those many years ago. Hang in there! Someday soon a child will call you MAMA!

Thanks for sharing some great verses. I still talk to alot of gals that are going through IVF or are getting ready to go through IVF. Anyway, I am going to pass this info along to them and let them know about your blog. All of us IVF women need to stick together!!

Hugs,
Lisa

I can't remember if I have left a comment before but I am a friend of Krysta. I wanted to let you know that I have been praying for you and your next IVF cycle. I am going through the beginning stages of infertility with IUI soon. Hope all goes well with you. Keep up your positive attitude.

My friend lead me to your blog. My story is some what unique, but still very similar to most infertile couples. Thank you for sharing meaningful verses. I'm praying for you!
