A Water Lily Among the Wildflowers - The BookI am SO thrilled to announce that I have been writing a book for mothers who have experienced pregnancy loss. My husband Austin and I lost our son, Asher James Dickey, in July of 2018. At our eighteen week ultrasound, we were excitedly waiting to find out the gender of the newest member of our family, when they said the words that still stop our hearts today:

“I’m sorry, there is no heartbeat”.

Two days later we delivered a beautiful baby boy, that was seemingly perfect in every way but walked out of our hospital completely empty-handed.

Our lives had been shattered. Walking through the grief and trauma of losing a baby was something we had never experienced before, and we had no idea how to navigate it. Stillbirth, miscarriage, and all types of pregnancy loss are not talked about in society. They never have been. In fact, women have been told to hide their losses and pretend like they never happened. And many are told that their babies were not even real people. Because of this, mothers who are walking through this trauma have no idea what to expect, very little support, and are incredibly confused about what is true regarding their loss.

Part of this journey has been discovering everything that Scripture tells us about pregnancy loss. When I felt God calling me to write this, I knew that every single life was precious to Him and that death was never His original plan, but I couldn't tell you where in Scripture it talks about our precious babies who never set foot on this earth. This book will unpack the Bible, front to back, and walk through each verse that talks about pregnancy loss. 

It’s hard to believe it’s been three years since we lost him, but I am excited to share that lot’s of studying, researching, collaborating, and writing have been underway, and I am nearing the end of Lysa Terkeurst’s Book Proposal Boot Camp (A ten-week workshop for writers wanting to publish a book). There is still so much left to do, but I cannot wait to watch the Lord do what He does best: change hearts and lives forever.
