  1. I can’t wait to read this because I have friends who have had drastically different childbirthing stories from my own and it would be great to have a lens from which to get them to talking about it with them.

    1. That would be amazing Rachel! Oh how I wish there was more comfortability among women sharing their stories. They are our testimonies that shine Him! I will be praying for that!

  2. I’d like to think I can be of the support needed in both situations!
    I can’t wait to read this book!

    1. Well if you win this Jeanette- you will have both the book and the study guide right?!
      I wish we could meet in person as well! God bless honey

  3. Thank you! I too am a single unmarried woman and to be brutally honest fear raising children for a host of reasons, and becoming a mom scares me. I know however this is not the Lords plan for me to fear it, so I was encouraged by this. Thanks for guesting posting and Tasha for hosting 😉 <3 I think I'm equally comfortable with grieving or rejoicing with others at this point in my life – but only because of some rough spots the Lord has led me through in my own life over the last few years – that have included both joy and sorrow.

    1. Hi Katie! I recognized your picture from other comments somewhere. So great to connect with you here! Wow… oldest of 12… and you mentioned you are “scared” of having children and raising them, you have me curious here… I wish I could grab a cup of coffee with you in person honey! I am encouraged by your heart so much! I would love to get a copy in your hands! Love Your Sister, Angie

  4. I just stumbled on this blog this morning through A Wise Woman Builds Her Home. I have suffered a loss of a daughter shortly after childbirth to which the Lord changed the direction of my life to one of service to childbearing women. I am now a midwife. I will be sharing these resources to my clients and would LOVE this book for my lending library.

    1. Quincy,
      God Bless you sister~ for serving other women during this season. It can truly be one that impacts a woman’s life forever… I pray that you will be blessed by it. And many others as well! Make sure you pop over to the website and look into all the free resources as well. We have a 2.5 hour FREE worship playlist that is easy to download from anywhere called the “ultra-Sound of Worship” named after one of the chapters.

      Love and Blessings

  5. I just want to say thanks so much, as a young and unmarried woman, for this post. It’s easy to feel excluded by others from “the really-truly-been-a-bride-and-birthed-a-child-womenhood club” and therefore to turn away from real fellowship and continue the “competition” and “estrangement” between sisters in Christ. I was especially blessed by this comment in your post: “As sisters in Christ, we need to unify and encourage one another, building one another up without falling into the temptation for competition.” Thanks again!

    1. E.A. Thank you for leaving a comment! I am so blessed to know it has ministered to you in your season of life as well! That was my intention… for it to cross gaps… Your Welcome! And Thank you for speaking up!

  6. Having lost my daughter to stillbirth, it’s really nice to read that someone who hasn’t had a loss is reaching out. So often it seems like it’s only other baby-loss mummas who reach out. Thank you.

    1. Oh Larissa,
      I am so sorry that you have experienced and noticed that. But unfortunately, you are so right. And you know something… it is not okay. We grow and become more like Christ as we walk through those hard times together. I know I am not perfect at this either, but I am aware of the decline of ability in our culture to empathize and I am sickened by it. I only pray that I can instill a heart of tender compassion into the children God has given me now to raise and be an example to… in hopes that they will inspire the next generation to be more intentional in this.

      Love to you sister,

      Angie

  7. It’s easier for me to be better at rejoicing, but I have learned to grieve better in recent years…

    1. I think you nailed something really valuable there… it is something we have to learn. We need to recognize that it doesn’t come naturally to us in this culture that is so desensitized to hurt and grief. We need to recognize that we need to allow others to really grieve and walk through that mess with them. Amen?!

      So glad you commented… you got my mind going!

  8. I think I’m somewhere in the middle. I often don’t know the right words to say, but I can cry and hug, and pray with grieving sisters. And I love rejoicing and celebrating with them, too! 🙂

    I’d like to win this to read and share with local friends. 🙂

    1. Hi Chantel! It’s good to see you here honey! We do need to get a book in your hands don’t we! I rejoice that you can rejoice with sisters in Christ when God blesses.

  9. There is such wisdom in this post. You are right, Natasha. This punctuates your series perfectly. Angie’s book sounds great.
