She’s Here!

We are so excited to welcome Gracie Jewel Herrgesell into the world!

She was born February 9, 2012 at 2:57 pm. She weighed 6 lbs 13 ozs. and is 19.75 inches long.

Gracie is doing very well. She is sleeping and eating well.

We had an ultrasound on Friday.


The kidneys looked PERFECT!!!! Praise the Lord! We are so thankful for each of your prayers. God has answered them. From here we will have a follow-up ultrasound in 6-8 weeks. We are praising God for His favor toward us.

Janie Lou loves her little sister. JL loves to give Gracie kisses. It is so cute. We are sleeping pretty well and looking forward to Nanni (my mom) coming in a couple days!!!

Thanks again for your prayers. We thank God for each of you!

I've been a follower of Jesus for over 30 years, and have been teaching God's Word to students and women for nearly 20 years! God has brought me through some difficult chapters in my own life, and now my passion is equipping women like you with tools to embrace your own unexpected chapters in life with grace and truth.
