When I first met Jessica Satterfield, it was through an interview. We met to talk about her work for the Kingdom, her passion for infertility, miscarriage, fostering, and adoption. But what others didn’t know from the piece was that I’d been following her blog for ages. At 22 years old, and in the thicket of praying for a husband, I stumbled across her website, where she wrote about waiting for a baby. And for the first time in a long time, my deep desires for marriage didn’t sound so silly.
Since then, Jessica and I have stayed connected. She’s continued to develop an incredible ministry, launched a podcast with her friend, Caroline Harries, and I’ve published my book on singleness and the desire for marriage. There’s been a very special parallel between our passions, despite our differences in age and seasons. And I’ve found that when you’re searching for the Father’s heart, you find His gifts and His goodness in the loveliest places.
