When you are believing for a supernatural pregnancy and childbirth, it helps to fill yourself with Scripture and the encouragement of moms who have experienced God's goodness in their pregnancies and childbirths! That's one of the reasons I wrote Re:Birth back in 2017, I wanted to go through Scripture and find every record of childbirth and look at it through the redemption of the Risen King, then I paired that with miraculous testimonies from across the globe.
I've tried to keep as many of the testimonies from the book available online, in one spot, so that if you lovely mama are looking for encouragement, you know right where to look! With Re:Birth's website no longer running, this has gotten tricky! So behold, the new roundup list of Supernatural Childbirth Testimonies!
Next up, is me again! I have four kids, and three testimonies on the internet [I haven't gotten around to writing my 4th!] But, I learned so much with each birth. My first two were in hospitals and my next two were at home.
My second birth went from a supernatural birth to a natural birth very quickly when I let fear into the delivery room. After I developed a rare skin reaction called pemphigoid gestationis and the doctors told me it would be too risky to have another child. I felt like I was in the pits with Job, but God is so much better than our present circumstances, and I went on to have two more miraculous babies! (More on all this in Re:Birth).
After feeling bossed around by hospital staff, I resolved to take the homebirth path and had the most incredible birth where my daughter was born peacefully in a inflatable pool with only a handful of regular contractions!
Nicole B. was kind enough to write and share two of her birth stories with me! She experienced God's healing her baby from two clubbed feet within her womb, and God's goodness didn't stop there!
Another amazing testimony comes from Natty's Journal: You can read her supernatural childbirth experience here!
Whew, are you feeling encouraged? I hope so! Re:Birth has many more testimonies, some from South Africa, Nigeria, and even Malawi! I hope to add more to my sight and would love to share your experience, or link to your sight if you've shared your testimony! Please don't hesitate to drop me an email or comment!
Also, it's my great pleasure to pray for you during your pregnancy and believe for a miraculous, supernatural childbirth. If you want to email me your due date or leave it in the comment section, I'll add it to my prayer calendar so you can be sure you are covered in prayer when your delivery time comes!
Love and Blessings!
This season has been rough. It's been rough for me, and it's been rough for the rest of the world to a greater extreme. I went back to school full time in January, while continuing to homeschool, and maintaining my writing duties and I had this great idea that I'd hire a babysitter when I needed help. This would have been the first time in years using a sitter and it was a big step for me to admit I needed help, but the Coronavirus had other plans...
Instead, I've been left juggling my kids education, my own education, and maintaining my deadlines. To say I feel burned out and like I'm failing everything right now would be an understatement.
Recently, I've been feeling God press my heart in the direction of maintaining a "Mary heart" in a Martha world. I'm sure you're familiar with the story. Luke records:
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
I stay up late each night reading and studying for school, and I wakde up early each morning to do the same thing, but in my incessant demand to study theology and read about Jesus, I've neglected the simple act of spending time with him.
In the business of trying to stay afloat with the demands laid upon mothers in this time, it's so important to increase our time with Jesus, not decrees it. From Him, our wellspring of life flows, and without that sacred time, emptiness ensues! If these last months have taught me anything, it's simply that the business is non-essential, but the stillness is lifegiving!
How have you maintained your oil filled during the pandemic? What Scripture motivates you?

I've wanted to learn how to ferment foods for years! I first read about the process and how important fermented foods are to our gut health when I was pregnant. But, other than knowing it was beneficial, I had no idea where to start. When I heard about Fermentools , I was really excited to check out their Starter Kit and get fermenting!
There's obviously a learning curve with every new skill we dive into, and my first slope downwards on the curve began by not reading that a Wide Gallon Mason jar wasn't included in the starter kit. Then I ordered some on amazon but was sent regular mouth jars, and finally was able to get what seemed to be the last wide mouth mason jar in our Coronavirus laden world. But, it was a gallon jar, and starring on such a large scale is not recommended.
The Fermentools Starter Kit includes a fine grain salt, which is rich in minerals and easily dissolved in water so it’s ideal for fermenting. You’ll also receive a stainless steel lid, made from surgical grade stainless steel, a glass fermenting weight, the airlock system, a rubber stopper and rubber gasket. Fermentools is also a family owned business- and all of their products are made and sourced in the USA!
I wanted to make fermented pickles, so I found a recipe and got to work. I learned the key to making crunchy pickles comes from adding ingredients which include tannin- a substance secreted in some leaves. For pickles, it's recommended to use bay leaves or black tea leaves to maintain a crunch. I chose bay leaves and added those, dill, pickles, and the saltwater brine.
First, I heated water on the stove top to dissolve the salt, and then I allowed the brine to cool.
Next, I loaded the mason jar with cleaned cucumbers, carrots, garlic, bay leaves, and dill.
Pour the cooled salt water brine over the veggies.
After your mason jar is loaded with whatever you’re fermenting, you’ll want to place the glass slab on top of your food to keep them under the brine.
Then, add the rubber gasket and stainless steel top on it.
Place the rubber stopper to the top
Add ½ inch of water to the airlock system
Lastly, you’ll place the airlock system into the rubber stopper
The benefit of the airlock system is that it allows air to escape instead of having to manually “burp” the brew to letting gases escape. This kit was ideal for beginners like myself who would be otherwise clueless on how to let the gases escape.
Instead, you just load the jar and let it ferment in a dark place for about a week.
