Two years ago today, our daughter Jacqueline Rose was born about 21 weeks early. Her life was short but she was such a gift. While we were praying this morning, I could hear Underground River singing on repeat:
We will choose to live In remembrance Through the test of time Your faithfulness will stand
I remember the moment my water broke, I could almost audibly hear Pastor Whit say, “Locate what you know”. I could then hear the Dutilley children declaring, “Fear is not aloud.” You see, the Holy Spirit used the Father of the house, and the children of the house to comfort and instruct me.
So while her stay was short, she was the key to generational breakthrough of placement in our family. She broke off that piece of me that used to allow others to silence my voice. That was the piece of me that died along with her and in God’s brilliance, he has and is working it out all for his glory.
And so, we choose to live in remembrance today of our sweet Jacqueline Rose Ball.
My name is Kathryn Ball. I’m 34 years old, my husband Micah and I enjoy new experiences and learning from one another each day. We’ve been together for 14 years and married for 10 of them. My hope is to help women flourish with God by becoming rooted, established, and immovable in every season. I will be sharing my journey with miscarriage, stillbirth, and chronic illnesses, waiting on God to heal me completely, healing I have received from endometriosis, and my walk with God through it all.
In the waiting, I’ve learned that my love for God is not conditional to what He does or doesn’t do for me and that is what it means to flourish with God. To truly flourish with God, we must become rooted, established, and immovable in every season. My heart is geared to help those who may be struggling with their spirituality in the midst of a difficult season and for those who are struggling to return back to church after experiencing abuse, disappointment, or displacement.
This is a safe community for women to come and share their struggles, encourage each other, and ultimately have a deeper understanding and connection with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I also invite you to join this community on youtube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9x1-ZI1kIP9T4NXQ3ximBA.
