I wanted to post about a new resource. This is from Lesli Westfall, and this is her ministry, Dancing Upon Barren Land. Here is a little about it that I took from her website:
"Most women from the time they are little girls dream of having children of their own and becoming 'mommy' some day. Our culture has changed over the decades, women are starting their families later in life. A childhood dream is shattered and the bite of reality stings when the desire for children doesn't come quickly, or at all.
It is estimated that one in six American couples (7.3 million women) are affected by infertility, even more worldwide. Those women who attend church or profess a belief in God, unfortunately, are not immune from these astounding statistics. They leave their places of worship with the need to fit in, to be accepted, with a profound feeling of hopelessness. Where is there inspiration for their confused mind and depleted heart?
Dancing Upon Barren Land - Spiritual Nourishment for the Infertility Road addresses those needs through a Christian online support ministry, whether they are new in their faith in Christ or seasoned believers. The ministry's mission is to inspire belief through Jesus Christ that there is an expected end to the road of barrenness. The monthly disappointments can be turned into God appointments, bringing joy and peace along the journey, as well as offering tools to family members, friends and ministry leaders to support the fertility-challenged, the women traveling to the destination of motherhood."
Thank you, Lesli, for letting me know of your ministry! Blessings on you.
