HI!

I'm Kristin.  I am a wife, aspiring designer, Christian and for now a SAHM.  My husband and I are parents to two darling little boys named Dylan Archer and Kyler Jude.  I created this space to document my family's adventures and lessons I've learned along the way.  The Mom Jungle is a modern interpretation of both the family newsletter and scrapbook.  

THE ONE WHO CRADLES OUR DESIRES

THE ONE WHO CRADLES OUR DESIRES

Such a profound and powerful reminder.

This afternoon during Dylan's nap, I spent some quiet time reading the Word and praying.  I wasn't expecting to become so undone as I read my devotional today.  It was just what I needed to hear.  Don't you just love those God-ordained moments?

I am once again reminded of God's faithfulness.  Before I conceived my son, God gave me scriptures over the course of a year or so, speaking promises of children to my husband and I.  We did experience loss and setbacks, but we also experienced the promise!  

I know the holiday season can be especially hard when you are facing issues in this area.  Even now, sometimes I find myself needing to release my concerns for our future little ones to Him.  What I do know is His faithfulness will continue.  I pray that God would grant you the desires of your heart this upcoming year [Ps 37:4].

I thought I would share these verses that helped me during that troubling time and still do today.  The first verse came via my online devotion (The One Year Bible) the morning after my miscarriage, the second verse the following morning.  Although it didn't take the sting of my loss away, the timing was such as an encouragement because God was speaking to my future.

[UPDATE APRIL 2015 VERSES FOR FUTURE BABIES: Deuteronomy 7:13Psalm 107:38Psalm 127:5]

I thank God that we can trust the One who cradles our desires.
