Summer Baby!

This summer something beautiful happened... LIFE! Another precious new beginnings baby was born to one of the awesome Mamas we get to serve. Keianna Rose was born at the very end of May. Here at new beginnings we get to celebrate new life more often than your average home, and we LOVE it!! I (Hannah-New Beginnings Staff Assistant) had the privilege of attending this birth as a support person and photographer! It is so special to get to be a part of a birth, its by far the most amazing and beautiful thing I have ever gotten to witness. This particular birth was a doozy! When we got to the hospital mama was already in pretty active labor, it seemed like she almost skipped early labor. Once we were admitted we ended up finding out that this mama had preeclampsia, which can be pretty scary. Thankfully the awesome medical staff at St. Jo's found it early enough that it was able to be treated and didn't cause too many problems. This mama only labored for about 5 hours total, God orchestrated everything so perfectly. She gave about 5 good pushes and out came a beautiful baby girl. Keianna is perfect in every way, hand made and loved by God. She weighed 6 pounds 9 ounces and had a gorgeous head of curly black hair. We stayed in the hospital for a few more days (extra monitoring is required with preeclampsia), but mama and baby were recovering beautifully and we got to go home! A huge shout out to two awesome women, Christina and Michelle. These women are 2 doulas who volunteer with new beginnings and offer their birth services free of charge to the women of new beginnings. They are incredible and we are so grateful for their generous hearts to serve the women of new beginnings. Even though we at new beginnings get to celebrate birth often, we never get tired of it. Getting to meet a brand new person perfectly knit by the Father is such a gift! I pray that we never grow numb to the miracle of life. That each and every birth we get to celebrate is another reminder of what an amazing Creator we get to worship. What a blessing. Enjoy some pictures of the newest NBH baby!

Tiny House #2

Back in May, someone attended our banquet and heard Miles announce the successful completion of building a tiny house on our campus, which will provide additional housing for a single mom and baby.  (A tiny home is a home that is less than 400 square feet in size).


That same evening, Miles also gave an invitation to join New Beginnings in building additional tiny homes. For $30,000 a home can be built, furnished, and provide a safe and sufficient independent living space for a mom and her child. 
New Beginnings Homes have been providing housing for single moms for the past 4 years in the program titled, "Welcome Home." It is part of the aftercare program that includes House of Hope, for moms who have chosen to place a child in adoption. 
Up until now, residents of Welcome Home have been living in a recently converted home on the property. The home hadn't been used for ministry purposes (other than to house staff) until 2011. An opportunity for the New Beginnings Ministry wa…
