It’s hard to believe that it’s been 6 years since Eden’s Promise was “born.”
I remember when I was first getting started, a lone doula with no mentor.
A friend asked me, “So what’s the promise?”
I confessed that I didn’t really know yet.
Today, as I look back on that time, I see that something secret had already been placed on my heart. I didn’t understand how to explain “the promise” and I definitely didn’t know how it would unfold. I still had years of “heart work” ahead of me in which I would be simultaneously kneeling before God’s throne to untangle my own story, and helping other women to step into motherhood with strength and dignity.
I guess God knows that’s how I learn: hand me a scrambled, messy picture and I’ll make a game of connecting the dots.
