Stories to Inspire and Warm the Hearts of Soon-to-Be Mothers
Author: Jack Canfield,Mark Victor Hansen
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Every year, millions of women wait with anticipation as they watch their test strip change from white to pink, thus beginning the awesome adventure of becoming a mother. This latest Chicken Soup book will find a place in the loving hearts and anxious minds of expectant mothers (and some fathers, too!).
"Supernatural childbirth is a practical and realistic look at God's promises for conception, pregnancy and delivery. This is not “pie-in-the-sky” – this is a personal testimony of how one couple overcame defeat and triumphed in God's plan."
Journaling during your pregnancy is so important. It's a gift you can give yourself and your children. To write from your heart is to care for your soul during this season of amazing change. And to record the details of these months is to bind up the memories of your anticipation and longing. This journal will become a priceless treasure that you and your child can share together as well as an heirloom that can be passed down one day.
Every new mom experiences a myriad of emotions—joy, love, the frightening, yet terrific reality that you are now responsible for a tiny little dependent. And in the midst of all these emotions—and burpings, feedings, diaper changes, and quick naps—moms need to be reminded of God’s awesomeness. In this gift-like book, new mom and best-selling author Sarah Arthur writes about how delivering her son three weeks early reminds her of God’s timing, how her trip home from the hospital with her newborn son tucked away in his car seat points to God being in control even when she is fearful, and how a mom’s concern over friendly strangers touching her young child in the grocery store also reminds her that people are sent to help. In a fresh and contemplative style, Arthur sits alongside Mom and helps her understand that God is in control . . . even when her life feels drastically out of control. This devotional will be a great companion for Mom during the small amount of time she gets to sit and be still and think of the truths of God’s word, while relating it to her new favorite subject—her baby.
Most baby books begin when a baby is born, but this one begins when the world was born, running from creation to Mom and Dad to baby. With helpful charts and plenty of space for photos and cherished memories, the acid-free pages are safe and beautifully designed with full-color artwork throughout.
