  1. The hardest part of life is in the midst of a challenge and remembering that this is part of our growth. Stay encouraged, be hopeful, and never lose sight of what is most important. Sending hugs and prayers!

  2. Sending you a hug! Hang in there, that’s what I tell myself after a few rather eventful years (more on the lines of career changes, family relationships).

    A friend of mine just had a life saving bone narrow transplant and his wife (a great friend) writes about it and her words also help me so much. The bigger picture- see the bigger picture, the life lesson through the struggle and yes pray.


    Here is her journal:

  3. Whitney,
    Thank you for your honesty. It is appreciated. I actually found you via Instagram and want you to know that you’re not alone. My Husband lost his job in April. An amazing, stable, wonderful job. We sold our house (thankfully we were able to!) and live in a small apartment now. Life is different, not gonna lie- it just feels harder. BUT, apparently I’m of the stubborn variety (also a fixer!) and God is teaching me something. Not even quite sure yet. I just have to trust Him and His plans for us- not mine. Which is so hard for me personally. You’re not alone! Be of good cheer! I will be thinking of you and will say a prayer for your situation!

  4. Praying you find peace in all the unrest and uncertainty. We just came out of a three year season that felt so uncertain, but God answered some crazy big prayers in His own timing. Now, our growing sense of stability makes me a bit nervous, if I’m being honest. I don’t want to go back to that place of feeling like I have it all under control. He’s got you in His hands, and you’re safest there. Keep breathing and praying!

  5. I think what is important to remember is that the gifts that we see on earth as being the most “valuable” {monetary, houses, cars, cute kids, success in business, great hair haha} are truly not the most valuable to God. He seeks to pull the gifts he gave us as individuals. Whatever gift he blessed you with he is molding to make stronger through the situation, to form you into more of what HE wants you to be. He is so good. Faith is a reaction to trusting his plan and that no matter what he’s got your back!!!! Thank you for sharing what seems to be a common thread right now. Husbands and their jobs. 🙂 So great to hear women who can open up and share. XO

  6. I feel like you and I need just one night, in a hotel room, pajamas on and share it all over ice cream and popcorn. I feel like the Lord has us in such a similar place right now. I know where you are at. Not going to send you the Sunday School answers, just going to say, “I know” One day at a time sister, HE is big….big ENOUGH. love you.

  7. My mom was diagnosed last week with diabetes. Not surprising, given that both her parents had diabetes.

    However, her approach and special prayer since her diagnosis has resounded with me on countless levels and hopefully will with you, too: “God, I will accept whatever this, but please give me the tools to get through it.”


  8. My heart is with you, sweet friend. I hope you know that your honesty is refreshing, your authenticity is brave and your will is envied. You know what I say… This is just a different path xoxo

  9. Whitney – I’m so sorry to read that you guys are going through a rough patch. Thanks for your honesty. I wanted to tell you that we were super stressed over here and we started eating differently and things are literally so much better now! I know that might sound trivial or unbelievable, but we are much less stressed and much happier in general. Let me know if you want to hear about it. (If not, no worries!!) I wish only the best for you and your family as you truly deserve it and you have provided happiness and job stability to so many others in the past. If I can do anything at all to help, be sure to let me know. xoxo, Julie

  10. You have a deep heart, friend. Pruning and shaping is hard. Glad we can learn from each other during these seasons. Lets meet next week for lunch-I’ll email u. Hugs…
