My name is Vanessa Figueroa and I’m married to my wonderful husband of almost six years, Kenneth Figueroa. I have a 13 year old daughter, Jianelle, from a previous marriage who is the… how can I say it nicely? The thermometer of our house these days (those with teenagers can relate).
We are a family who was recently (five years ago) transplanted to cold Chicago from sunny Florida. Everyone tells us we went the wrong way but that’s just how our God works sometimes – His ways are definitely not our ways. We love to serve God and serve people. Along with owning his own insurance agency, my husband is an Associate Pastor at our church New Life Covenant and I have the privilege of leading the Women of Warfare prayer ministry, along with singing on our worship team. Our daughter Jianelle loves to worship through her gift of dance and she also serves in our resource ministry. When we aren’t working or serving at church, we enjoy attending our daughter’s volleyball games, traveling (we have some exciting trips coming up to Costa Rica and Europe), watching movies, and eating yummy food!
After five years, we are so excited to finally share our journey with infertility. This was a big step for our marriage but we felt led to share our story of faith with the world. We pray that this blog is a source of hope and encouragement for those not only dealing with the same challenge but for those who are waiting on anything in their lives (a spouse, a baby, a career, a move, a home, or anything else in between).
We love to hear other’s stories and prayer requests so please feel free to contact us or leave your comments.
