Does anyone understand my pain?

When I’m hurting or when I’ve gone through something very heartbreaking, I immediately want to know that I’m not alone.  I want people to tell me their stories.  I search online forums for situations similar to mine.  I look for books whose stories will give me a big hug.  It is comforting to know that others have experienced the same thing, and I’m not just some weirdo who struggles with things unknown to the rest of the world.  However, I think the main thing I’m looking for when I go searching is hope.  I long to know stories of people...

The Path to My Healing and Breakthrough

As I journeyed through three miscarriages, trying to get pregnant, and then needing to stay pregnant, I desperately wanted something to grasp onto.  Someone just tell me what to do, and I’ll do it!  Early on in this experience, I found a couple of books that were incredibly inspiring and encouraging at the time.  I still think the books are great, and all the info is correct.  However, their suggestions didn’t work for me.  Or maybe I just didn’t understand the full message.  The books included God healing infertility and miscarriage problems, a lot of amazing testimonies of God bringing...
