About the Author
Raynna Myers is an author, speaker, photographer, doula, wife, and homeschool mom. She is sharing the journey through her writing to bring courage to others because life—in all its beauty—is sometimes excruciating. Much like when a woman is in labor and the contractions come, we can relax, release, and connect with God and others in this miracle (life) we get to be a part of.
We are alive within mystery, by miracle. —Wendell Berry
The work of parents, shepherds, nurturers, and creators is infinitely important as well as infinitely challenged. Pain will come, don’t give up, but do learn the way of release. A woman with child portrays a stunning process of transformation, that reflects life endlessly, and you don’t have to be a woman to see it. Spiritually and physically, change and pain are meaningful for all of us, and will lead the way forward, even as a mercy. Facing our fears is the way to life and freedom.
When we find a redemptive perspective on our suffering it ceases to be suffering.—Victor Frankl
Raynna speaks and writes vulnerably, honestly, and gently. She values insights gleaned through hardship, rites of passage and the every day. She encourages us all to be seekers and listeners as she hopes her shared journey will bring renewed perspective and freedom as we see how mercy opens new ways of thinking and living.
We’re all in this persevering together. Rather than waiting for “perfect” by our definitions—in God—we can live everyday reborn, again and again receiving life and giving it. It’s time to relax.
