A Water Lily Among the Wildflowers - The Book

I am SO excited to announce that I have been writing a book for mothers who have experienced any kind of pregnancy loss. My husband and I lost our son Asher James Dickey in July of 2018. We were at our eighteen week ultrasound, excitedly waiting to find out the gender, 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 shove their loss underneath the rug and pretend like it 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, have very little support and are incredibly confused about what the truth really is; especially when it comes to what Scripture says regarding their babies.

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 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.
