My Story

I’ve been married for almost 12 years.  I have been a Christian since long before I met my husband.  In 2003, I began a journey down the road of infertility.  I had an ectopic pregnancy.  Then in 2004, I had 3 miscarriages (Jan, Mar, Aug). This was when my depression began.  Many ups and downs. The questions as to why.  Sleeping too much, not going to work, not doing the housework anymore, etc.  I tried to cling to my faith, and I still felt God speaking to me. “Adopt!”  My husband wasn’t on the same page.  This began the struggles in our marriage.  In 2006, I had 5 different jobs, and continued to go downhill in depression.  In 2007, I had yet another miscarriage.  By the time 2008 rolled around, I was done.  I won’t go into details, but my husband and I separated, and I moved 3 hours away for about 5 months.  In Jan 2009, I then came back to town to work on putting the pieces back together.  I moved back into the house in late 2009.  We still struggle almost daily, but we are trying.  Through all of this my faith has wavered and, quite frankly, almost disappeared completely.  I am writing this blog because I feel that God is leading me to get some of my experiences out to help others who maybe have experienced or are experiencing some of the same things that I’ve experienced.  I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I think I am going to enjoy writing it!

  1. I have been married 13yrs,and it has not all been bliss,i would say 7 yrs of it has been blah and lonely. I like you have been a christian long before I was married. But complications in my marriage and so on led me to depression and very low self esteem issues. I am still in a loveless marriage,we are good friends,but no romance,and sometimes not even good friends! My wish is that my marriage will turn around and that God will work wonders!!
    Cant wait to hear more of your story!

    • Thank you! It sounds as though we have some common ground. I would like to get to know you better.

      I am currently trying to rebuild my faith. I am doing a bible study on “Read the Bible for Life” by George Guthrie. You can follow my faith journey on my other blog yeoflittlefaithblog.wordpress.com.
