We’re excited to announce the giveaway by Jessica Burdge this week. This giveaway event is posted on the Women for His Honor Facebook page so run on over there for more information!
Hi there! Jessica Burdge here. I am currently living in Washington DC with my husband Daniel. We have been married for 8 years and hope to adopt in the next year or two. We love the charm and diversity that city life offers. I’m a family and newborn photographer. I love people and adore meeting so many sweet families in DC. I know the struggles of infertility and want you to know there is hope and joy in the middle of the battle. The highs and lows come….but you can find joy. “He settles the barren woman in her home as a happy mother of children.”- Psalm 113:9
You can follow me here on my website and blog
A couple of books I would recommend reading:
First and foremost, the Word of God. Wash yourself in it!
Every Bitter Thing is Sweet by Sara Hagarty
Created for a Purpose by Darlene Sala

Hello from the sunny state of Florida! My name is Ruth Bennett. I was born in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. I am the fourth child in a family of ten. I was homeschooled through highschool. At age nineteen I moved to Taiwan to serve a year as an assistant English teacher in the Elementary school system. When I moved back to the states my family had moved to Lancaster PA and I joined them there. I spent several years pursuing a college degree online while also teaching school at our local church school. I love traveling and was also able to spend some time in the Middle East.
At twenty-five, I was swept off my feet to the plains of Iowa by a young man named Ian Bennett. We lived three and a half, very full, years in our church community there until God very clearly moved us to a little town in Lake Placid, Florida, where we now reside.
The story of my journey through the last few years is a story of finding God’s grace in the middle of difficult circumstances.

Grace Like Rain by Martha Strickler He Woos in the Desert
Here are a few books that I have found encouraging in the last few years:
Walking With God through Pain and Suffering by Timothy Keller
Every Bitter Thing is Sweet by Sara Hagerty
Why Suffering by Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale
The Hardest Peace – Just Show Up both books by Kara Tippetts
Between May 1 and May 31 there are a handful of reasons to party
And/or nurses training)
Fifty years ago, Jerry and I were married on a May Saturday
In a week that celebrated four family graduations,
Including mine from Iowa Methodist School of Nursing.
Busy week, that.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
I used to let May slip into June
With a picnic, a ball game, and a day off from work.
I thought Memorial Day trips to the cemetery
Were for old people visiting their even older deceased parents.
There is a special piece of real estate in the northwest corner
Of the Brethren Cemetery
With five stones marking the Castle and Moss families
With resting place- dates starting in 2001 through 2015.
Our husbands didn’t quite make it to three score years and ten.
Our three children didn’t make it to thirty.
I’ll give you the respect you deserve,
And honor the holiday you claim.
I will do the graduation parties
And celebrate 50 years from nurses’ training.
I will also shed a few tears over five memorial stones
That have all the freshness that a decade and a half can offer.
Welcome, May, you are a treasure.

My name is Sherri Graber and I am married to Jeff Graber. I fell in love at fifteen and married at eighteen. We have been married for twelve years and are raising our three children in Mississippi where we were both born and raised. Our children are our biggest blessing and we strive daily to care for their hearts and point them to Christ.
I am a homeschooling Mama so I am kept busy with teaching them and running them to their extracurricular activities which include soccer and choir. Jeff is a diesel mechanic and works from a shop in our backyard.
My hobbies include anything artsy; painting, sewing, small reupholstering projects, etc. I also love repurposing things and when I have the time, you will find me turning pallets into clocks, sweaters into pillows and old barn boards into shelves.
I hope this podcast can be an encouragement to other Mothers who are going through similar situations and most of all bring honor and glory to Jesus.
One of my favorite things to do is sit and paint. This is a Christian-stay-at-home mom whose art I absolutely love that I would like to introduce to you:
I’m offering a little giveaway to this shop. For more details click on the Giveaway page here on our Women For His Honor Website and be sure to check Facebook on April 12th when the winner is announced!
Just click on the highlighted word and it will take you directly to the website I have suggested.
The one is the National Jewish Health website. I got a lot of ideas and suggestions off of their website.
Allergy testing is something I highly recommend.
Another one is Dr Richard Aron. I did not find out about him until we were through our eczema journey but he’s been extremely helpful to many people with eczema. He is actually from another country but he consults with his patients via internet so a lot of people from all around the world have found help through him.
The Merry Clinic is another website that I used. I had mentioned the herbs that I used that were formulated specifically for children with eczema and this is the company that I ordered them from. So I will put links to more things on the blog if you want to check over there for the rest of the things that we used.
The shirts that I made for Campbell were similar to these that are called “Scratch Sleeves”. They really are helpful for protecting your child’s skin while they’re sleeping.
The Eczema Company has a lot of clothes, lotions & products that look helpful. I haven’t actually used them myself but it is a good website for ideas & guidance.
We need to be able to raise over $3,000 for the expenses this year for the Women for His Honor Podcast. If you are interested in supporting this ministry, please send donations to the Paypal account attached below.
Anyone giving $5 or more will automatically have your name submitted in a drawing to win a Tote from Urban Southern !
