About Momma Rake

Hi! I am Marissa Rehkopf. I am married to the love of my life and we have two super active, amazing little girls, Emmerson 3, and Taitum, 2. I believe in making the most out life and appreciating every second of the ride, enjoying the good and learning from the not so good. I created this blog to document our journey and to share a few ideas, recipes, and thoughts along the way.

I can only imagine...

Both of my girls were complete surprise babies. I have mentioned this before on this blog, but we were actually "trying" not to get pregnant when I conceived both of them. {God clearly had other plans!} Both of my pregnancies went smooth and there was no issues to be found with either myself or either baby during both. 

"Miscarriage" was a word I ignored, and even completely avoided.

And then I started blogging. 

I read posts by beautiful, strong, honest women like this one, and this one, and this one, who struggled with the loss of loosing babies, some of them more then once. 

I wept for these women as I read their stories. 

How easy it is for us to live in ignorance when something has not directly affected us. 

Reading those posts from momma's just like me made it real. I feel forever changed after reading their stories. 

Kimmie over at Sugar and Dots is hosting an amazing giveaway to raise awareness for Project Hope. (Click HERE to check it out!!) You can win a $20 credit to GUSSY SEWS and many other prizes, including a headband and clip of your choice from my shop!

To all you momma's out there who have suffered this loss, I can not say that I know how you feel, because I absolutely don't. What I can tell you is that I now pray for all of you every night

Matthew 5:4
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted."

Happy weekend sweet friends!!

Much love and Blessings,

it's heartbreaking how many blogger friends i have known to lose a baby... i never realized how common it was! that is a great verse to remember :) and have you read heaven is for real? i always recommend it to those who have lost a baby (and really anyone else).

I'm like you, I try not to get pregnant and get pregnant. It's easy to take for granite the blessings that God has given us. Some many of my friends have dealt with pregnancy loss early on and later as wel. My heart always breaks for them! Thanks for sharing the giveaway!
