7 Links

I have seen '7 Links' posts going around health and fitness blogs and wanted to spread it further.

The idea is that once you get tagged in a 7 links post, you post your 7 links of the subjects below, and tag 7 other bloggers. That's a whole lotta 7's!

Here are my links:

1) Most Beautiful: Waiting In My Wings

If you are experiencing a waiting period in your life, you might want to read this re-post of Waiting In My Wings by Stephanie Bryant. It is so beautiful and gave me some much-needed peace.

2) Most Popular: Natural Remedies to Boost Fertility and Natural Remedies to Boost Fertility 2

My natural remedies posts are still a work-in-progress, but it seems as if my readers are quite interested in health, fitness, and learning about simple and natural ways we can boost fertility both instead of and also alongside ARTs.

3) Most Controversial: Guest Post: Colin

My wonderful husband, Colin, wrote a guest post answering questions from my readers. He wrote about married life, being a police officer, and also infertility. What became controversial, I think, is Colin's honest answer to his feelings towards medical intervention. He was in no way trying to offend anyone, but rather offering up his personal convictions.

4) Most Helpful: TTC Timeline and Things You May Not Know About Me

I suppose if you want to know more about me and/or my TTC timeline, these posts might be the most helpful to you!

5) Surprise Success: Dancing in the Minefields and Dancing in the Minefields 2

In these posts, I explore the song Dancing in the Minefields by Andrew Peterson. The line, "Oh, this is harder than we dreamed, but I believe that's what the promise is for" really speaks to me still. In post one, I took a look at the 'why' of infertility. In post two, I wrote about blessings through infertility.

6) Not Enough Attention: Dancing

In this post, I explore a book I read: When Wallflowers Dance: Becoming a Woman of Righteous Confidence. If you lack confidence in any area of your life, read my post and consider picking up the book. Another great book on this subject is So Long Insecurity by Beth Moore. Great reads.

7) Most Proud: We Do: A Look Back

It is not necessarily the writings of this post I am most proud of, but rather, the (easy) decision to say, "Yes!" to marrying Colin almost 5 years ago. He is the love of my life and makes me happy every day.

 *YOUR turn!* I am going to tag 7 people, but I want everyone who reads this to do it as well if you have not already. It is fun to look back at what you have written and how you have grown. If you need more links to check out, take a peek at my friends' blogs below!

My 7 in OCD alphabetical no particular order:
