Introducing...

As Benson mentioned, God has been doing an amazing work in our lives - in more ways than one! The past month or so, the Lord really convicted me to be still and listen. So, instead of blogging I have been spending time reading and teaching God's word. It has been an amazing, life-changing month for me.

On October 21st, God fulfilled a promise to Benson and I when we found out that we were pregnant for a second time...something that we had been praying for but didn't expect to be answered this soon. So, it is with a joyful heart that I proudly introduce to you.... 

...the Sexton 4!!


Today, I am 8 weeks pregnant with our sweet rainbow baby. It has been an emotional but blessed experience to be pregnant with Luke's little brother or sister. Luke has definately had a hand in this new special blessing - as our new baby's due date is... June 29th, his birthday! You cannot tell me that we do not serve an AWESOME God!

Please continue to pray for us and for our sweet miracle. Even with our joyful news there is not a day that goes by that we don't miss Luke. We know that the next few months will be filled with many anxious doctors appointments and a wide range of emotions but we are standing steadfast on the promises of God - praying and believing that this baby is healthy and whole.

We look forward to sharing this new journey with all of you!

  8. I was so happy to hear the news from Benson last week! We do serve an amazing God. We're also expecting our rainbow baby, and Benson and I both had chills as we talked about dates...Luke's birthday as your due date, and we got our positive pregnancy test on my due date. I will certainly continue to keep you all in my prayers, and I'll now focus on praying for your healthy little one, and calm and assurance for you and Benson. Also, with this pregnancy, I bought a book on Amazon called "Praying Through Your Pregnancy" and I have loved it. The author gives ideas of specific things to pray for during each week of pregnancy, based on the development of the baby. Much love to all of you!

  9. Kristin, we've never met but I began following your journey with Luke several months ago when a friend of mine posted a link to your blog asking for prayer. Though I know these past months have been so difficult, I rejoice with you that God is in the process of growing and especially BLESSING you! I will continue to follow your blog and pray for all of you as the fourth Sexton comes into this world. I am sure the God has great things and blessings in store for your beautiful family. Congratulations!!

  14. Congratulations! What a wonderful blessing...God has such perfect timing. May God bless you with peace and joy during this pregnancy. I have not met you, but you and Benson (I have known Benson through Chrysalis, and he and my husband have done a ministry event together.) are such an inspiration to me; I think of and pray for you daily.

    Thank you for sharing your story with all of us. It has certainly increased my faith, and has made me understand just how precious life is, and how much I want to cherish each second with my 14 month-old son. God bless you in this new journey!

    Sincerely,
    Laura A. Davidson

  24. Praising HIM!!! We found out about our third gift from God about this time two years ago...after enduring the passing of our daughter a few months earlier (also HLHS). God is Good! He will bless you beyond all measure in this baby brother/sister of Luke's! Praying God's peace on you as you journey through this pregnancy! With JOY & HOPE~ Rebecca

  27. Congratulations! I got your sweet message on our blog about our sweet HLHS son Luke. It was so nice to see such a wonderful connection between us! I pray that you have peace during this pregnancy and rejoice in the fact that God has blessed you with another little miracle! Your little Luke is absolutely beautiful (I have actually been on this site before you wrote on mine--I wouldn't forget his sweet face). I'd love to connect with you as I would enjoy sharing our angel's stories. Look for me on Facebook if you are on it! Take care and enjoy the ride of this new pregnancy!

  30. Congrats to you guys! Leah told Audi and I that you were expecting a couple of days ago- we are excited for you. So is Jada. She looked up at me on Monday and told me in that matter of fact, out-of-the-blue way little kids have, "Baby Luke is going to be a big brother, Daddy." And she grinned and skipped off to the swing set. Makes me feel good to know that she is influenced by and thinks about such great people as you and Benson. God Bless!
