Jessa Seewald on Parenthood

Baby Seewald at 19 weeks, 3 days
We have been posting Jessa Seewald's responses to the questions you submitted. One reader asked the expectant mother what is going through her mind as she prepares to enter parenthood within the next several weeks. (Baby Seewald is due November 1st.)

What are you looking forward to most about parenthood, and what are you nervous about?
Jessa: Being that I am currently pregnant, I think I am most looking forward to holding this precious little one in my arms for the first time! Sometimes I just sit and wonder what our baby’s little face will look like. Will we see more pronounced “Seewald” or “Duggar” features? Will baby be born with Daddy’s blue eyes, or Mommy’s curly hair? 

It’s so amazing to think that God has entrusted us with this precious little life to love and care for. I think it is only natural for us to feel unprepared for such a huge responsibility, but we know that God will guide us each step of the way. Each night, we pray that God will prepare us to be good parents and that He will give us the grace to be able to raise this little one for His Glory. Ben and I feel especially blessed to have so many godly examples of other parents around us to look up to and learn from! We are constantly asking questions and learning from those who are further down the road in this journey of parenting.
