Packages delivered!

St. Lukes- Woodlands Family Birthing Center

We took a round of packages to the hospital today!!! 

What a blessing to be able to provide these items for these precious families!

We dropped off 25 comfort bags at St. Lukes in The Woodlands. 

In our comfort bags we have a copy of  the books I Will Carry You and Hearing Jesus Speak Into Your Sorrow. These books were lovingly donated in our book drive in February by so many amazing, loving people. In each book we put an "in memory" label for each person who gave in memory of a baby. Gideon's Warriors also included a CD of music, a candle, a beautiful piece of jewelry made by a dear friend of mine who lost her daughter 21 years ago, some tea, seeds to plant a garden, a card, some resources and a letter written from me to these newly bereaved mommies. I pray and hope that these items really help heal the hearts of these mommies who are just beginning their lifelong journey of grief.

I know, for me, it was so amazing to be able to have something in my hands after I got home that I could look at, listen to, wear and read after Gideon passed away. Reading books and listening to music and having jewelry that reminded me of him was truly a gift.

Lord, I know you will walk closely by each family who receives one of these bags. Let them know You are near. Be closer to them than their very heartbeat. Give them the assurance that their baby is with You, in Your arms. And Father, if some of these families do not know You, show them that You are real. Bring them into a relationship with You. You are so good. Be the balm to our broken hearts.
I love you.

We are confident that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in the comfort that God gives us. -2 Corinthians 1:7


  1. Wonderful that you did something so few of us get when we leave the hospital without our babies. God bless.

  2. Wow! This is amazing, Stormy! I am sure so many families will be blessed thanks to you all.

  3. Thank you so so much!! I pray and hope that these bags help just a little bit to make this road more bearable.
