After three years of marriage, Jewel Mische and her American husband Alister Kurzer are expecting their first child.
On April 1, the former actress made the announcement on Instagram by marking her flat tummy with, “En route, ETA 6 months."
She captioned: “Been the hardest secret to keep!!! #LatePost #babyontheway #forreal”
In another post, the 27-year-old soon-to-be mom recounted how she “tried” and “kept failing to get pregnant” for the past years.
“Until one night God spoke to me, He told me not to worry & gave me peace.
“So I quit as I trusted Him and rested on His promise!
“By the time I managed to do so [writing about getting pregnant], guess what, I already was [pregnant].”
She resumed, “After almost a year, just as we were settled in to our new home, ready & free from all the tasks (among other good things), I got pregnant... that’s GOD’s timing!!
“Like my husband always says, be patient..God has always the bigger picture in view.
“When 'I' learned about our baby 'accidentally,' I was euphoric.
“I can’t say it was a skyrocketing faith experience, but it was once again, an incredible witness to my Father’s faithfulness!!!
“What I am tremendously amazed over right now is my smooth and easy pregnancy, even though I expected no less than that!!”
Jewel is 24 weeks pregnant.
The couple who love travelling have to put their trips on hold, and stay at their “dream house” in Michigan, United States, until she gives birth in July 2018.
First of all, thank you for your kind words, prayer & encouragement!???????????? Alex & I are speechless to receive such love from all corners of the world! To mother’s who may not have such a support group, God is always near.???????? —Not too long ago I posted my personal story about having children. A few weeks before that, I had felt a strong urge to write about what I had been going through, I became frustrated as I kept “failing” to get pregnant. Until one night God spoke to me, He told me not to worry & gave me peace. So I quit as I trusted Him and rested on His promise! Towards the end of 2017 I felt compelled to share my story because I honestly felt it was time. I wasn’t able to share as soon as I had liked.... what I didn’t know then was that God was urging me to make a faith-filled, hopeful post because I was indeed about to become pregnant! By the time I managed to do so ???? , guess what, I already was ????????!!! ???????????? —Now in the past I have learned a great deal about “God’s timing”, it’s something I’d like to share with you on my upcoming posts. But when it comes to “answered prayers” and whether or not the timing seems “right” often depends ON US than it does God. We wait on God, when actually He is waiting on us! However in some cases, as we allow Him, God intervenes. I realize now that MY timing would have been really bad. We didn’t know we were moving to my dream house and having to endure the process of selling our former home. I was so thankful I wasn’t pregnant in the middle of all that! After almost a year, just as we were settled in to our new home, ready & free from all the tasks (among other good things), I got pregnant... that’s GOD’s timing!! Like my husband always says, be patient..God has always the bigger picture in view.????— When “I” learned about our baby “accidentally”, I was euphoric. I can’t say it was a skyrocketing faith experience, but it was once again, an incredible witness to my Father’s faithfulness!!!???? What I am tremendously amazed over right now is my smooth and easy pregnancy, even though I expected no less than that!!???????????? THANK YOU again for all your love, prayers & for joining us in our Greatest Adventure!!!???????????? #TheKurzersGrow????????#24weeks ????????????
IN GOD’S PERFECT TIMING. In December 2017, Jewel opened up about being asked one of the most dreaded questions: "When are you gonna have a baby and start a family?”
To this, she said, “First off, Alex and I started our family on the day we said ‘I do.’
“And I feel like my marriage is complete with or without kids just like how I didn’t need a husband to complete me.”
She continued, “Alex and I decided from the beginning that we will wait at least 2 years before we start having babies.
“We wanted to be well adjusted as husband & wife and have a solid marriage before we bring kids in to the mix.
“But the longer we were married, the more I felt content with just the 2 of us (Alex felt the same way).
“Don’t get me wrong, we like kids and we love our nephews & nieces to pieces.
“But we weren’t sure we wanted one on our own anymore (prior to marriage we used to joke we’re gonna have 8, HAHA).”
The two decided to just be happy with what they have.
“Until one night I had a dream… basically God told me in the dream that ‘HE WON’T HAVE A PROBLEM PUTTING A BABY IN MY WOMB.’
“I woke up and I knew exactly what it meant.
“So after that, I stopped ‘trying.’
“I told Alex about it and he thought I had a great plan but surely I cannot beat God’s haha.
“I have learned, once again, to rest and look at every season as a gift.
“How long are we gonna wait? I don’t know.
“I just know God told me not to worry and I take His word at it.”
