15 weeks

Here I am at 15 weeks, which is already a few days old. I probably won't put pictures up every week, but I had said I would put an updated one on so here you are! Now keep in mind I had just eaten a BIG supper, I am not that big when I roll out of bed in the morning! :)

Have a wonderful weekend! We love you and miss you all!

Not only is this my favorite verse but God has put it on my heart all week, so I had to put in on here even though I think I have used it already! Especially the "anxious" part. My doctor told me today that the anxieties have just begun and they don't get any better after the baby is in the world!:) Oh Great! I completely agree and understand, but I do know that God can calm those anxieties and replace them with his love and joy, so that is what I continue to pray for throughout our pregnancy! So, if any of you want to pray that for me I would absolutely LOVE it! Thanks much :) :)
"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:4-8


  1. Praying! In Jesus' name take Amanda's anxious feelings away and let her enjoy the blessings that You give us everyday. Thank you Jesus that your plan is way better than ours and you are in control of everything. Thank you that you hold our hand and walk through every situation with us.
    Bless you Ben and Amanda
    Love you and miss you

  2. One of my all time favorite verses (I even had it inscribed on a bracelet from Etsy!)

    Matthew 28:20(b) -- "And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

    He is with you always! His love and care for you runs deeper than any of us can fathom... and it is my prayer that that fact gives you comfort and peace. Praying you will enjoy this time as a miracle is growing inside of you!

  3. Wow! You look darling! Karen did share with me that you guys were expecting! So I guess that whole week with the girls was a pre-curser for what's to come instead of Birth control. Haha

    I loved being pregnant and I hope you do too!

  4. You are just beautiful! Seriously!
    We are praying for you, Ben and the babe. I think you guys should move back (to lakeville this time) and then we can pray for you in person every thursday evening!? Love you guys!
