Memory Monday and NIAW
This week is National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW). The purpose of NIAW is to raise awareness of infertility.
Unlike a lot of other medical diseases/disorders, infertility is not talked about. I understand it is a very personal issue to deal with, but I’m also reminded that we are not to walk this earth alone. Jesus walked with 12 other disciples for a reason. For support, prayer, encouragement and friendship.
The reason I started this blog was to share our story and encourage others who might be going through a hard time with infertility, depression or any other trial. My hope is that during NIAW there is a big movement and all who suffer from infertility can can find a place for comfort. Whether it’s talking to a friend or joining a support group, I believe that no one should have to suffer alone.
I found this verse below perfect to memorize this week. When God comforts us, we receive strength, encouragement, and hope to deal with our struggles. The more that we suffer, the more God brings us comfort. And when we endure trials, God will help us comfort others who are suffering from similar trials.
So join me in comforting others. Share your story. Hold an event. Educate others. Donate to the cause. Pray for those who are suffering. We are not alone!
