The Christian Woman’s Guide to Infertility (Book, Podcast, and More)
When the years of infertility reached the decade mark, I spent a lot of time praying about writing another book about infertility. It had been five years since I wrote Pain Redeemed and I wasn’t sure if I had another whole book’s worth of comments, but I realized I did have a few thing to say.
By the time it was edited and scheduled to post, I was fighting a battle with the stomach-bug-that-wouldn’t-leave, which ended up being our surprise baby.
In a plot-twist that we never saw coming, the end of my infertility series was actually a pregnancy announcement. But despite the surprise ending, the things I wrote were unchanged. The healing and hope we found long before a baby arrived, was still worth talking about.
Even though the series I wrote wasn’t a full-length book, more like a booklet, we decided to still make it available in print & Kindle format.
Our goal is to put resources into your hands that can be used for yourself & for friends, family, & church members.
Along with the print version of The Christian Woman’s Guide to Infertility, we’re also releasing a podcast series that is a companion to the book (though the book is certainly not required to enjoy the conversation).
If you have ever:
know a friend who has faced infertility
been part of a church
— this resource has been created for you.
We’ve done our best to keep the cost as low as possible, & the podcast is free.
We pray this will be a huge blessing to the Body of Christ as a whole.
I had always planned on motherhood. On middle-of-the-night feedings, hauling around car seats, wiping up spit-up, learning to change diapers one-handed. I studied all the tricks on getting littles to eat vegetables and the easiest ways to swaddle.
I was a teacher by nature. I learned the best by teaching others and motherhood seemed like the perfect fit. In teaching my children to know God, I would know Him better. Motherhood would please both Him and me.
The truth is that motherhood looked a certain way to me.
When October comes each year, I watch the dates on my calendar. The days arrive slowly, in order. The day I miscarried the first time, followed by Annie’s birthday. She would have been six this year if we had been able to bring her home. Slicing grief that still stings. Grief that is muffled by…
Today I am bringing you a guest post from my friend, Angie. She is the author of the book, “Redeeming Childbirth“, and her post today is the perfect ending to our series last week on infertility. One thing that God has taught me over and over is we are not as different as we…
This is my tenth Christmas without a baby. Twice we came close. Once with a positive pregnancy test in October that would have been the answer to my “announce a baby on Christmas” prayer, but instead left me crying on the bathroom floor. That was the year the holidays were just too hard and I never…
I was still in my teens when a doctor told me that there was a “strong chance” that I would never bear a child. Nineteen and still invincible. I made grandiose plans to suffer through this trial with dignity. It worked well for a while. That is, it worked until it didn’t. And then I…
Some days are easier than others. Some days I wake up and life is filled with sunshine and my husband is wonderful and my heart is content. And then comes the day when the teenager is pregnant, the baby is being raised by a grandmother, and the mother who doesn’t want to be bothered aborts. Those are…
