Life has been crazy around here. Spent a week in Atlanta at the Youth Ministry Conference! We had some great experiences and enjoyed spending time with old friends.

Franklin and I are still trying to get pregnant. We have been thrust into the world of fertility treatments and shots. I don't know how people endure this month after month. I received my first hcg shot yesterday and I haven't felt the same since. I had a migraine the size of Texas last night, my whole body aches like a 93 year old, and this afternoon I slept for 3 1/2 hours!

I had a conversation with a friend of mine today who is also taking fertility shots and hcg. I asked her if she ever felt guilty, like we were playing God when we go to such lengths to have a baby! Where's the line between having faith in God and putting your faith in modern medicine? Then again don't we go to such lengths when we have a heart attack, cancer or get in a car accident? We allow the doctors to do everything they can to save us. What are your thoughts on this subject?
