“Roots Childbirth offers families the opportunity to prepare for their birth in a comprehensive way utilizing the Fruits of the Spirit as the vehicle for revelation and understanding. As a believer and a lover of all life, I am excited to present this curriculum to you and would love the chance to show you how very much God cares and holds dear every aspect of your pregnancy and upcoming delivery. Just as He has planned every complex detail of the sparrow’s birth, as be breaks free from his shell, taking his first breath and step and embracing a new world… Or the young seedling, with it’s tender roots holding the plan in place, pushing past it’s hard outer layer, opening to the sun above, stretching high and wide to become a beautiful blanket of Lillies… God has also planned the details of your child’s birth with as much care and attention. You, my friend, are more valuable to Him than many sparrows and the plan He has for you, is beyond fantastic; it is perfect. Every detail, every aspect has been designed by the master designer and this beautiful season of preparation is the perfect time to embrace it and claim it for your own. I pray that you will be covered with peace and understanding throughout this process and I am humbled to have the opportunity to serve and teach you on your journey.”
