please pray

I know there are so many prayer warriors out there.

You have covered our sweet Cora and our family in prayers so many times.
And now I need your help.

Will you please pray for my friend Julie and her family?
Julie was my college roommate and a dear friend.
She is 26 weeks pregnant with a sweet little girl,
and her body has gone into pre-term labor.
She is in the hospital and they are doing everything they can
to make their little girl stay put as long as possible.
I know they are trusting God with each minute,
but when it is your child it is SO hard to have things out of your control.
Please join me in covering them with prayer.
You can read more and see specific prayer requests on Julie’s blog.
We love you Julie and are praying, praying, praying!

  • The Noble Steeds - I don’t know if you read every comment or not but I follow your blog religiously. When I read today’s post I had to leave a few words. I gave birth to my son at 24 weeks gestation. He is now a healthy and happy 15 month old. But it was a long road. Doctors can do amazing things but it was the blessings of our Heavenly Father that got us through. I will be praying for your friend and her baby!ReplyCancel

  • Taryn - I will be praying! I have been reading your blog for almost a year now and have been so inspired and so in awe of you and Joel and your baby Cora. She is absolutely so precious and so beautiful in every way. My second little girl is just two days younger than little Cora. That’s one reason why I have felt so drawn to your blog and your story. The way you have captured her little personality in all your photos is just amazing. I am sure they are a blessing to you. I would love to know what type of camera you have and how you chose it. Or were most of the pictres of Cora done professionally? Either way, they are great and I can tell you love to take pictures. Just wondering?? Best Wishes with Baby Mac and God Bless!!
