24 Apr From Prayer Partners to Best Friends!
“I joined Moms in the Making in early 2016. The first time I could, I signed up for a prayer partner not really knowing what to expect. When I got the first e-mail, introducing me to a girl in Georgia named Heather, I was so nervous. Heather and I started e-mailing each other multiple times a week. At first, we shared our fertility stories and related prayer requests only. However, we quickly started realizing that we had so much in common. A few months into our friendship, we exchanged phone numbers.
Now, I rarely go three days without hearing from Heather. We talk about everything from our love for coffee, our good and bad days at work, our prayers for family members, our design adventures at home…and everything in between. Heather and I have walked through so much life together. Positive pregnancy tests, sick family members, IVF treatments, loss, new jobs and so much more. On the good days, she is one of the first people I want to celebrate with. On bad days, she knows how to encourage my heart and how to lift me up. When I am down, Heather knows me well enough to speak life and encourage the unspoken places.
It is absolutely crazy that a girl in Missouri could have a best friend in Georgia she has never met…. but I am so thankful for the story God has written. I can’t imagine life without her! Thank you Moms in the Making for connecting us!”
