Dana and I are super excited to share with you that, Lord willing, our third child will be joining us this February!
If you follow me on Facebook or YouTube, you may have seen that we had a miscarriage a few months ago, so we were a little hesitant to quickly get our hopes up and start sharing the news of this baby with everyone, but an ultrasound revealed that everything is looking great, the baby seems fine, and that this will progress to a full pregnancy! Woo hoo!
Still, we would appreciate your prayers through Dana’s pregnancy. Once you have a miscarriage, there’s always that fear that something will go wrong and that you’ll lose the child. It’s certainly happened for friends of ours is pretty tragic ways. If you don’t mind keeping Dana and this new baby in you prayers, we’d definitely appreciate it. We truly believe in the power of prayer and that God will honor the request of a multitude of people for our little baby. Thank you!
Of course, as we vlog through our normal life on YouTube, we had to record the moments of when we first told our other kids about the new baby, as well as the ultrasound, family reactions to the news, and more. It’s fun! Check it out below.
And, if you’re curious about what we’re doing on YouTube as a family, two weeks ago we crossed our 500th video! Here’s that 500th video of highlights from our past six years of sharing life on YouTube, as well as a short, one minute animated video I made on why we share life on YouTube in the first place. Sometime soon I’ll have to update you guys on how YouTube has really become an incredible ministry platform for us, especially to teenagers!
Of course, we thank each of you for being a part of our lives since LISM started seven years ago! While I haven’t been incredibly active lately in posting what I’ve been thinking about youth ministry, there’s certainly a lot running through my mind about it. I’m looking forward to sharing it all with you sometime soon! Thanks for being a part of this journey with us!
