Each week, I will be answering one question that you have asked either through email, comments or the questionnaire I sent out to the Email Club members.

Hey, its Dina-Marie from Cultured Palate back with another in the video series, Your Questions Answered.
Today's question is from Stacy who asks - "Did you have easy pregnancies - you must have since you had 10?"
Actually, Stacy, I have not had easy pregnancies. While our first 3 were normal full term pregnancies, most of the others were not - it went downhill!
I lost 3 babies during the second trimester and 1 in the 3rd trimester. This means that I had to go through the whole delivery process only to deliver a dead baby. It was very difficult.
Then we had 5 preemies with 3 of those requiring neonatal intensive care (NICU) for a month each.
Isn't it funny how we so easily jump to conclusions? I know I am totally guilty of it!
Assuming that people without children just don't want them. In reality, many of them can't have children. I have friends that for medical reasons have not been able to have children.
I even had a woman in a store - a perfect stranger - ask if I were Catholic. I'm not sure where my answer came from, but I said, "no, just a fertile protestant" and we both had a good laugh!
My point is, God has each of us on a different path but each of our paths have the same purpose - to bring glory to Him.
God uses everything in our lives to mold and shape us. For me, He has used my children to teach me not only about Himself but, about myself too.
I am glad the He knows just what we need to polish our rough edges!
That's it for this week's Q&A and I look forward to seeing you again next week!
