Bethany’s Thoughts on Marriage, Pregnancy and Becoming a Mom

The past few years have been a whirlwind. I started a relationship with Dāv back in October of 2017. We got married in October of 2018. Found out that we were pregnant in June of 2019. And are due with Davey Jr. in February 2020.  Those are all pretty huge life changes and landmarks in my life.  Many of you have followed along with my life’s journey and have been such an encouragement along the way.  I am so grateful for the sisterhood I have in each one of you.  For those of you who are new to this space, here are a few of the videos and blogFull Post

Grieving My Miscarriage While Learning to Celebrate with Others

It had been over six years since I saw a positive pregnancy test. My first two pregnancies had tragically ended in early miscarriages. Since those early days of marriage, I often wondered if I would ever conceive again. As each new year slowly ticked by, my diagnosis of unexplained infertility loomed like a mysterious fog that wouldn’t lift. But here I was. Standing in my bathroom on a warm April afternoon, holding the most unexpected news in my hands. I was pregnant. Against all odds, I had conceived again.  I felt a surge of joy and excitement pulse through my body. But just as quickly, I felt a surgeFull Post

Bethany’s Journey of Singleness – Part 2

You are so ready to be married. Everything seems to be 100% ready to go…minus the guy. If only God would bring him into your life quickly things could finally move along. Yep, that’s where many of us are finding ourselves. BTW – If you missed Part 1 of the series, stop for a quick second and read that first. You have the desire and the want-to, but there are no young men that seem to fit the bill. If only God would hurry up! Doesn’t He know that marriage is a good thing and you’d would be much better off as a married woman rather than as singleFull Post

Answering Your Questions about Singleness

WATCH VIDEO  Singleness. It’s something we all face before getting into a relationship. Some single gals seem to thrive in and through this season. Some single gals don’t. Whether you’re single and struggling, or single and thriving, you’ll find these questions and answers about singleness super relatable. These questions are taken straight from the sisterhood. “How do I not feel left out?”  “How do I not envy my friends getting married?” “How do I deal with the unknown?”  etc. WATCH VIDEO

Bethany’s Journey of Singleness – Part 1

It’s always interesting for me to reflect back on my earliest years of being single. The memories of finishing my teen years and entering my early twenties are pretty good ones. Even though I had already experienced serious heartbreak at that point (I went through a difficult breakup at 19), my future still seemed bright and hopeful. I was young, I was excited, and I was ready to explore what God might have for me as a single woman. Life seemed to be serving me what I wanted at this point in time (or at least what I thought I wanted) and I was happy. It wasn’t long afterFull Post

Don’t Get Trapped in the Comparison Game

I accidentally went to the gym at the same time as my friend yesterday (I’ll call her Samantha). I didn’t mean to be in there while Samantha was there, but she unexpectedly came by while I was still working out. Immediately, I began to play the comparison game in my mind. Wow, that fitted top looks so good on her. I definitely couldn’t pull that off. And she looks so pretty, even in her workout clothes. I know I don’t look that pretty! I love Samantha, but sometimes it’s hard for me to be friends with her because she’s practically perfect in every way. I can’t compete with her thinness,Full Post

Top 5 Most Popular Posts from 2019

This past year has been filled with excitement at GirlDefined Ministries. The testimonies that we heard were absolutely incredible. The growth many of you made in your relationship with God was amazing. Some of you even accepted Christ as your personal Savior for the very first time. Some of you found freedom from habitual sin. Some of you found the courage to find a mentor and/or mentor a younger woman yourself.  The list could go on. God is working mightily amongst the Girl Defined Sisterhood.   This past year we launched our brand new book, Sex, Purity, and the Longings of a Girl’s Heart. We also published 104 new blogFull Post
