Holy smokes, this has been a crazy week month. It has been super busy and super awesome at the same too. It started with Justin's parents coming and visiting us for almost a whole week. While they were here his sister came down too with her 2 kids. It was super fun to hang out with them and have Inara get to know her Mimi and Grand Pap. It so so cute too because she stared saying Mimi too! We went to the aquarium and she loved it. She was so excited to walk through the tunnel with the fish. She had just began walking and it was an endless tunnel for her to walk run down. We had such a good time with them and we can't wait to see them again in August and then again in October or November.

Well right before they came Inara got! And then while his parents were here, she got us sick :( and then when they got home they got sick too :( And boy was this little bug a hanger-oner, it lasted for a few weeks. To top it off I fell down the steps at the doctors office. It was not my week! God was watching over me because Inara was not with me and it ended up being just a sprain (even though it still hurts now).

I started reading Lord, Heal My Hurts with a friend. It has been so awesome. I have really found hope ALONE lies in Christ and his unchanging word. This became very valuable as I myself had a little health scare. just be frank..."I found a lump in my breast". I figured it was probably nothing but also figured that is why I have health insurance is to make sure it is nothing. I went to the doctor and sure enough she felt it too. I tried really hard not to freak out. Breast cancer runs in my family, so I was really scared. I kept reminding myself that logically 25 year old women do NOT typically get breast cancer. But I didn't want to put my hope in that. Thankfully God gave me a wonderful husband who loves the LORD. He reminded me of God's truth and prayed for me. I knew there was no reason to worry because Jesus tells us not to:

"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."  Matthew 6:34

After Justin prayed over me. I immediately felt better. I know God is trustworthy, even with hard/scary/impossible things.  Today I found out it was nothing! Essentially I have "fatty tissue" and need to stop drinking Caffeine! I felt so relieved. It was amazing how much I was putting my hope in my good health. It was definitely a heart check to put my trust in God alone. So here is a wonderful song to remind me (and you) to put our hope in Him alone!


  1. Whew! I am so glad you are okay Lauren.

  2. Wow, SO much going on! So glad that it turned out to be nothing & that the Lord got to teach you through that..beautiful!


I would love to hear what you think!
