Today, I have the joy of having Ruthie here sharing some encouragement for when your perfect plans fail. I am sure we can all relate to that, can’t we?

After I had a couple, they rocked my world by being…well, children. My original plan of having a large family fell to the wayside. I wondered, “Can I REALLY handle more?”
After 3 years, I went for it again. God blessed a third time, and although I was thankful, I decided to be done
Only God wasn’t.
He sent a little present the first month I accepted a part-time job outside the home.
