By Nancy J. We were 4 months pregnant with our 3rd child. I had miscarried a baby before this pregnancy. The Lord had already given us a name for this child. The name was Zariah. It always seems like the Lord gives us a name. The name was really heavy on my heart two weeks [...]
By Anonymous I had just found out I was pregnant with our third child. I believe we found out when I was about 4-5 weeks pregnant. We were excited but at the same time, I couldn't shake this nagging feeling that I wasn't going to carry the child all the way. I even expressed that [...]
by Jen C. Five years ago, I woke up to Jamie's eye looking like it was completely fogged out. With the help of my friend and her mom, I found out Jamie had Glaucoma. I was told Jamie had 2 days to get surgery or she would be permanently blind. It felt like I was [...]
By Misty S. My son, Noah, is about to graduate from high school. Daily, I’m reminded of how much of a miracle he is. His story is an I Made Lemonade story. On September 8, 1997, my third son, Noah, was born. My husband and I were young and living in California, happy but struggling [...]

My husband and I have been married for almost ten years, and we are parents of four wonderful children who are ages 10, 6, 3, and 2 ½. From first glance, you may not think much of our family. We may seem pretty ordinary, but the way we became a family was nothing but extraordinary.
by Daniel H I received permission from my brother to share a little piece of his life for the sake of encouraging others who may be questioning why God has them, or a loved one, on a path that seems uncertain. My brother and I have always been fairly close. For the most part, we [...]
He hasn’t stop talking since the day he first spoke. I remember being a kid and our grandma would make us play the quiet game. Whoever could stay quietest the longest won a quarter (um…ya!!!). I’m pretty sure Noah never lasted more than 15 seconds. Ever. That’s one of the things I love about him, though. He is straight up FEARLESS.
This week, I have the privilege of sharing one of my favorite stories. My mom, Natasha, asked if I could pen one of her many I Made Lemonade moments. If anyone has met my mother, you know that she is pretty much always smiling. She’s just always had this way of distancing herself from all [...]
