If someone else throws their opinion at you like you asked for it or something, you just might scream. So normal! But don't scream, ok? I have a better solution.
I help you sort through all the noise and make decisions about what's best for your family. Yep, I'm sharing my opinions so don't scream at me!
But here's the thing, take them (cause I think they will help you) or leave them
(it won't hurt my feelings, I promise).
New around here? Here's where to start:
Being a business owner, coach's wife, a pastor's kid, living ten hours from my home state of Texas, helping create the Give Grace campaign. Oh and I run a little online shop called Scarlet & Gold. You should check it out.
I joined these clubs the hard way. One not by choice and the other after a long and hard fight.
Four years of infertility. Two rounds of IVF. And then, doing the whole two babies at once thing...all while running a seven figure business...man, I’m tired just talking about it.
But here’s the thing, I get it. The pain is real. Trying to choose joy every day is hard. Fighting the pity parties ain’t no joke. Trying to juggle it all and somehow come up for air for this thing called self care? Like what the heck is that anyway?
I want to help you make it through…. Mostly sane. LOL, but really.
So, whether you're in the thick of infertility desperately praying for a baby to call your own or you're a new mama just trying to survive the day, welcome.
I'm glad you're here. Grab my hand and let's do this thing.
You are seen, you are loved and you are not alone. We are in this together.
I am here to encourage you through two of life’s hardest seasons: infertility and motherhood.
I want to be your cheerleader because you know I was one of those. Not lying. In high school and college. So picture me with my pom poms cheering you on.
I want to help you focus on what matters most and let go of the rest.
I want to help you spend your days giving your family YOUR BEST instead of worrying about THE BEST.
Let's ditch the guilt and step into our calling as a mother with confidence.
GIVE ME THE GUIDE!
The mom guilt. The feelings of inadequacy. The impossible standards of Pinterest & Instagram. The balancing act of trying to juggle it all.
Your cup is empty. You're tired. Burnt out. Pushed to the max. Not sure if you're doing enough, being enough or giving enough.
"I started following you back when we were going through fertility treatments after listening to one of your podcasts I believe. Your testimony and encouragement helped me then. And now as a mother of a 1 month old following your insta stories of the twins have helped me to be more in the moment with my little one!"
"Your insta stories of the twins have helped me to be more in the moment with my little one!"
"I felt so alone in my infertility journey. No one in my circle of friends was struggling to start a family, so I just stayed quiet. Your vulnerability inspired me to be more bold in sharing what we were going through and I was so blessed to see how God used our story in so many ways. I was able to see the purpose in the midst of our pain and God taught me (and my husband) so much during the past four years. Your posts were also helpful on a practical level. I learned so much about IVF and it helped me as I prepared to meet with our doctors and begin fertility treatments. I was also so glad to hear you share about faith and infertility as I don't know many in the Christian community that are talking about the use of fertility treatments. You have been such a blessing to me! (I'm writing this while feeding our little miracle baby girl)!!"
"Your vulnerability inspired me to be more bold in sharing what we were going through!"
"I love this quote by Rachel Hollis and I had to share:
'The God who made the moon and the stars and the mountains and the oceans, the Creator who did all of those things, believed that you and your baby were meant to be a perfect pair. That doesn't mean that you're going to be a perfect fit.
That doesn't mean that you won't make mistakes. It does mean that you need not fear failure because you cannot fail at a job you were created to do.'"
“Girl, you're amazing. You inspire a lot of other mamas, especially twin mamas like me.”
"You are such a special person! Thank you for being so transparent. You truly are an angel for other women like me! I can’t ever tell you enough how much I appreciate you letting me in, a total stranger and giving me such words of wisdom. I love watching your stories and following along with your life. You inspire me and so many others, even when you think you are having one of your worst days."
“I just wanted to send you a message and tell you my husband and I transferred to Dr Schoolcraft at CCRM specifically because of you and the conversation you and I had. I want to thank you so much for taking the time to talk with me, a complete stranger.”
"We had multiple miscarriages, had started looking into adoption and IVF....and then GOD. We are now expecting our miracle baby boy! Thank you for all the reminders that He is with us through all the hard times and for your honest testimony!'"
“I always looked to your story for encouragement when we were in the thick of our journey to have babies. ”
"I have been following Scarlet and Gold for a while but recently started listening to the Give Grace podcast. I'm in the midst of grieving/a period of waiting because of my first miscarriage and I have found so much truth and hope in the podcast. Thank you for reminding me of the Lord's goodness and faithfulness even in times of sadness and trial."
“I have found so much truth and hope in the podcast.”
“Your insight and resources on how to tell a friend walking through infertility that you are pregnant was invaluable to me! It helped me with what to say, when and when not to share the news and in general helped me empathize better. I was forever grateful for that download!”
“I have really thought a lot about “give grace” this Mother’s Day.
I have been intentionally thinking before saying happy Mother’s Day because many women are sad this day with the reasons
you have mentioned.
I haven’t dealt with infertility but I have a loss that made Mother’s Day hard until I held my baby in my arms.
Thank you for your ministry. I am blessed to know you."
“Thank you for your ministry. I am blessed to know you.”
"I’ve been following you for about a year and a half and I just wanted to say that your journey and your trust in God through all of it has been incredibly inspiring!!"
I'm here for ya, sister. I've created a guide to help you every step of the way.
walking through infertility and you're not sure what to do, what to say or how to support them?
