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.

Featuring Two Mamas This Week...Crystal and Hannah

This week, I am cheating a little. We are featuring two mama bloggers. Hope you don't mind!

The first blogger is, Crystal from Blessed to be Broken. Crystal is mommy to Calvin Phoenix and to her Rainbow baby. Her most recent post shares some pieces of her heart as she reflects on missing her sweet boy.

Crystal also has a beautiful website/project in memory of her sweet Calvin called Calvin's Cupcakes. She honors the birthdays of babies in heaven with a sweet-designed cupcake...not the kind you can eat, but the kind you can feast your eyes on! =) It's definitely worth checking out!

Please show Crystal some love and take some time to pray for her this week. She has been very faithful in reaching out to many in this community and has participated in many of our Walking With You posts.


I hope you will also take the time to stop by and show some love to our second featured mama, Hannah from Rose and Her Lily and read about her sweet daughter, Lily. Sweet Lily was born still in March 2010.

In her most recent post, Hannah shares something I think we can all relate to as grieving moms...standing in the store aisle feeling the waves of longing and the ache for what we are missing.

Please take a few minutes and show her some love in the form of an encouraging comment, and please pray for her family this week. Thank you to those of you who have taken the time to visit each WWY mama. It means so much to a grieving heart to know she does not walk this path alone.

Love to all...


  1. Kelly, I look forward to these posts each week to "meet" more interesting and lovely women. Thank you!

  2. I follow both these ladies (although I am behind in reading them both!). Thanks for featuring them!
