Margot Mercer Speaks


Margot Elizabeth Mercer was the happiest surprise of our lives. TWO girls! We couldn’t believe it. What started with so much joy quickly turned to so much grief as we learned of her terminal diagnosis and faced a future of uncertainty throughout pregnancy.

Each week that passed was met with both joy that we got more time with her, and more devastation as our nightmare became more and more real to us. On July 3, 2023 at 36 weeks, we welcomed our precious baby girl. I’ll never forget what it felt like to feel her body breathe, rub her precious soft face, and hold her perfect hands that looked just like her sisters.

Goodness, we miss her. And now, almost 365 days later, the hole in our hearts is still there… but we can say with utter confidence that the Lord has, and will continue to abundantly sustain us. We have learned of our “stunning capability to do hard things” through Christ and we stand on the truth that what the enemy meant for evil, God will use for good.

Margot’s life continues to have a rippling impact on those around us and we are humbled by the massive opportunity we’ve been given to share the love and grace of Jesus through her story.


What the enemy meant for evil, God WILL use for good. We are deeply grateful for the work of Abel Speaks and the intentionality they pour into families that are walking a desperately hard path.

If you would like to make a donation to Abel Speaks in Margot’s honor, it would mean so much to us. With your donation, they will continue to be able to walk alongside others during their time honoring each baby and the life created by God. This would bless us beyond words.

By faith, Margot still speaks!
