Sunday Word: “He will honor you, and you will see the wicked destroyed”

Donít be impatient for the Lord to act! Keep traveling steadily along his pathway and in due season he will honor you with every blessing, and you will see the wicked destroyed. I myself have seen it happen: a proud and evil person, towering like a cedar of Lebanon, but when I looked again, he […]

Mother’s Day Word: “Her children respect and bless her”

Happy Mother's DayA good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds. Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it. Never spiteful, she treats him generously all her life long.

She shops around for the best yarns and cottons, and enjoys knitting and sewing. She’s like a trading ship that sails to faraway places and brings back exotic surprises. She’s up before dawn, preparing breakfast for her family and organizing her day. She looks over a field and buys it, then, with money she’s put aside, plants a garden.

Tragic note from 15-yr-old post-abortive mom

On March 20, 2007, I published a touching email I received from reader Bethany about her miscarried baby, who she named Blessing. Bethany included photos.

With Bethany’s permission, I posted her note and pictures. Not only did that note lead to a lasting friendship between Bethany and myself, she also went on to moderate this blog for several years and many of you know and love her.

In honor of Infant and Pregnancy Loss Awareness Day today, Bethany mentioned that post on her Facebook page. She wrote:

This post about Blessing somehow became so popular that it has been the number one post on Jill’s blog, for years… and if you type “‘miscarriage” in google images, my baby’s picture is the first that shows up.

As a result, I continually get emails from women all over the world who have had miscarriage, and these pictures have helped provide them with closure. (This spurred me to write a book too).

Many of the comments Bethany receives on her post to this day are thankful. Sometimes moms just need to talk. And every now and then one is so sad, like this one that was posted on October 13. I’m breaking it up into paragraphs for easier reading….

Review: Moderator Bethany’s new book, “Answers in a Time of Miscarriage”

by moderator Carla I must admit I am a bit biased. Ok – a lot biased. I have known and loved Bethany Kerr for a few years now and knew anything she wrote would be heartfelt and honest. She did not disappoint. Bethany has just published a book, Answers in a Time of Miscarriage. It […]

Top 10 2010: Stanek’s most read posts

When analyzing my blog’s 2010 page views, moderator Chris discovered that just like last year, many of the most read posts were not actually written in 2010. So I’m separating out the top 10 most read posts written in 2010 and the top 10 most read tabs and posts written previously. Note how popular the […]

Stanek’s 10 most read blog posts in 2009

UPDATE, 10:15a: To clarify, these were the most read posts in 2009, not necessarily from 2009 – one of the surprises. 6:44a: I’ve never done a year-end post ranking. While many of the most popular posts weren’t surprising, some were. One was downright weird. Thanks to moderator Chris for scouring for Google Analytics for stats. […]
