jka21 So many mistakes, so much to learn, but learning true calligraphy before becoming a mother was at the top of my list. #firsttimer #fivemonthstomasterit 6d

jka21 The best part about planning a nursery without finding out the gender of this little one is that I would've done it in neutrals anyway. (This wallpaper isn't the winner, but I adore it.) #babyatogwe 2w

jka21 The first thing I did when I woke up today: called Starbucks to see if they had pumpkin scones for fall yet. I'm so glad they failed me because I learned how to make the best pumpkin scone ever tonight. #takethat #starbucksgetouttamylife 2w

jka21 The second you announce your pregnant, everyone has a horror story for you. As someone who has a very visual imagination, this could leave me terrified and absolutely dreading labor. Finding verses that remind me of truth rather than living in dread have made all the difference. Because guys, this is happening. (Pregnant? Read John 16:21 AMP every day.) #conquerfear #itshappening 2w
  •   bens12 It's funny how everyone wants to tell u how bad everything is. Stay positive. Beautiful experience 2w
  •   fivekindsofhappy @jka21 I was told to really look forward to my labour day as that's when you get to meet your baby! It helps. Xx 2w
  •   paulivolley I know the fear and the feeling! That was so refreshing to read. Thank you for sharing your journey and scripture :) it made me smile 2w
  •   jka21 @fivekindsofhappy that's such a helpful and sweet perspective! 2w
  •   sdotcamarillo I remember feeling this way but there's absolutely nothing to be afraid of! Trust your body. Our bodies were built to be able to handle labor. I did so unmedicated and natural. It was very intense but I absolutely wouldn't have had it any other way...and I plan on doing it all again. 2w
  •   sdotcamarillo That being said, , we are so fortunate to have modern medicine to intervene when our bodies just don't want to cooperate. 2w
  •   jka21 @sdotcamarillo I'm so thankful that my midwives birthing inn is inside the hospital should there be any emergencies, but I'm so excited to let my body do what it was created to 2w
  •   sdotcamarillo Great! That was the same situation I had! The midwife birth center was inside the hospital. Nothing like a little extra reassurance! 2w

jka21 After a few weeks of meat being the enemy, suddenly the only thing I wanted to smell/see/eat was beef. Yesterday the midwives solved the mystery and told me I'm pretty anemic and need to up my iron. Love how The Lord leads my baby's desires already(: #mybestfriend #beefalldayerrday 3w
  •   meg_snare Midwives?? 3w
  •   jka21 @meg_snare yes ma'am! So so happy with our decision. Lord willing, I'm laboring in water. (Their birthing center is thankfully located in the hospital in our neighborhood!) 3w
  •   meg_snare We did the same (well, almost the same, at home ). Wouldn't have changed it for the whole wide world... the most profound and beautiful experience. So so thrilled for you! 3w

jka21 Today is a full day of baking as a "sorry for waking you up four times a night, being disgusted by your body spray smell, asking you to run to the store at odd hours of the night, and crying for no reason" gift. Homemade funfetti and his favorite ice cream from scratch for the best mister. #energyisback #whatwouldidowithoutyou 3w
  •   bridget_goldsmith Nice gift name 😀 Be well dear! 3w
  •   kristinmyoung Lol!! I would hide BY's cologne and then want to cry when he found it. 3w
  •   jka21 @kristinmyoung phew that was the first thing to go back in Switzerland. He sheds a lone tear just about every time he thinks about it...r.i.p. 3w

jka21 For the past three weeks, the only thing baby has wanted is salad and smoothies. Sweets are repulsive and meat doesn't go so well. I should be thankful but, my sweet child, I want a doughnut. #thepreggostruggle #haventbeeninchargeofmyappetiteinfourmonths 4w

jka21 We are so proud watching our mentor and friend Aeneas Williams' enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame tonight. This man was led by my dad, became a spiritual counsellor to my husband, he and his wife guided us through dating and eventually he was the man to make us husband and wife. Such a deserving man of God. "Begin with the end in mind and die empty." #blessed 1mon
