For those walking the path of grieving the loss of a baby or child, we offer grace for the journey and a friend to walk with you... There are moments on this walk when we feel we cannot go on. Moments when a friend comes alongside us to point us again to the One who sustains us. A friend to lift us in prayer. A friend to allow us to lean on her as she leans on Him. A friend, who is not afraid to walk through the valley in the rain, with a storm mounting. She is not afraid, because the Lord is her strength and her shield. She is not afraid because she doesn't walk alone. And because He has walked with her through the valleys and the storms, He has sent her to walk with you. And He will carry you both through the rain, through the storm, through the unknown dark alleys to secure, dry ground. Whether you are a newly bereaved mother or a seasoned mom who has watched the Lord make beauty from ashes in your life. Whether you need someone to lean on or you are the shoulder that can bear the burden, we hope you will walk with us as we are walking with Him. We hope you will join us with our broken umbrellas, with all our little quirks and imperfections in our various stages on this walk, as His grace washes over us in the pouring rain.

Show Some Love to My Friend Jennifer, Isaiah's Mommy...

I am so excited to share the story of Isaiah and this week's featured blogger, his beautiful mommy, Jennifer from His Grace is Sufficient with you on this week's Walking With You. But, first, I would like to remind you that the purpose of this segment of Walking With You is to encourage one that all would know that they are not walking this path alone. I noticed participation was a little down last week, so I would just like to gently ask that you would please take just a few minutes to visit Jenny and leave her a word of support and/or encouragement. (Pleeeeaaase...=) It takes very little time, but means so much to a grieving heart.

Many of you may already know Jenny...please stop by and show her some love anyway! She has such a gentle spirit, and such a tender mother's heart. Plus, she has been faithful to "walk with me" in blogland...always encouraging me and so many others along the way. And for that, I am so grateful.

Jennifer's most recent post just blessed my soul this weekend. Please take a moment to read how the Lord whispered His love and comfort into her heart. Make sure to scroll down and read the post right before it, also, if you have time. You will see that God is truly working in her life. In going over to encourage her, you just might get encouraged yourself! (It often happens that way! I think it might be part of God's we show love to one another, we feel loved and encouraged.)

In her first blog post, Jenny shares some of her heart and the reason she chose her blog name:

Jennifer's words: I named my blog "His Grace Is Sufficient," because there is no way that I would be able to get through the day without Gods grace pouring over me. It says in
2 Corinthians 12:9, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
My daily focus is to look at what God has allowed in my life, and how can I bring Him the glory out of it. How can I take the loss of Isaiah's life and bring something beautiful out of it.

This post talks about the first steps on Jenny's journey...and tells the beginning of Isaiah's story. I encourage you to read more parts of her story if you have time...God has carried her on an amazing journey. And, He still carries her.

Thank you so much for taking the time to walk with other moms. Now, please go show sweet Jenny some love and remember her and her family in your prayers this week!

Have a blessed week...


  1. Glad to see Jenny featured this week, esp since I met her! :)

  3. I am going over to visit with her now. Thank you.

  4. Kelly, I have had the pleasure to read some of Jennifer's blog before, but plan to go over tonight and reread her recent posts. Hopefully I will also go and visit Elena. I have not been very good on getting on the computer this summer, but I just wanted to say how encouraging you are to me and to others. I know how much time it takes to read through posts and then comment on those you are highlighting. What a blessing you are to many!

    May the Lord bless you with a wonderful day!

    XOXO Karen

  5. I am going over to visit Jennifer now!
