“I woke up to him seizing on the floor bleeding. My life literally changed overnight…” Krystal says, about the moment her husband suffered a brain bleed, and her worst nightmare became her reality. Krystal’s husband, Nehemiah, lives with an AVM — a brain abnormality that can result in a critical or fatal brain bleed at any moment. Krystal is mom to three young girls and married to the love of her life. @krystalmfesterly lives knowing life is fragile. But she chooses joy and beauty, still and always.
Today, Nehemiah has survived several brain bleeds. He and Krystal live with the side effects of surviving; seizures, loss of basic skills and amnesia— short term memory loss. She says, “It’s like living with Dory…but in reality, it’s more like living with someone with dementia.” @krystalmfesterly is her husband’s caregiver, a mother, and the SOLE financial provider for her family.
As Krystal cares for and provides for her family, she proclaims God’s presence: “No matter how alone I feel in this, He is always with me.” Krystal, thank you for teaching us how to love better and hold tight to hope. Today we pray, post, and donate to @krystalmfesterly. We are trying to raise $5,000 towards the family’s out-of-pocket medical insurance costs.

Beth independently adopted her incredible daughters: Christina and Qing Qing. Christina was born with a non-typical brain structure and is limited in mobility, and her ability to speak. Qing Qing was born with Down syndrome and was recently diagnosed with leukemia.
The world often tells Beth her daughters are “Lucky to have you.” Beth says the opposite, “No, I am lucky to have them.” Beth, we are humbled by the love you pour out as you care for your daughters. We are in awe of the beauty you exude as you remind the world “God is faithful.”
Today we pray, post, and donate to @lissabethnicole. We are trying to raise $5,000 to cover Beth’s medical insurance deductible for 2020. Get the picture to post and donate in the @themomsweloveclub profile (double tap so more people will see Beth’s story.) #loveforbeth

@sharonmckeeman went into the hospital room anticipating the birth of her third baby, but she left with empty arms. Joshua, her son died on his birthday, October 30th. Sharon was shattered. She knows the bitter cold of darkness. After Joshua, she had two miscarriages and two rainbow babies. There was a light after so much loss.
Last year while her husband was deployed, Sharon’s little girl was climbing out of the crib. Sharon leaped across the room to catch her. In an instant, Sharon’s legs collapsed under her leaving her unable to move and in excruciating pain. Sharon’s left leg suffered nerve damage and was paralyzed by compartment syndrome.
Today, we love @sharonmckeeman. Every single moment of her life is a challenge. Yet, she leans into beauty. She finds courage to keep going. Today, we post this picture, pray, and donate to raise $5,000 for motorized leg braces that could help her regain mobility and medical bills.
