"Beautiful meditations for you to ponder as you labor through your pregnancy and wonder, 'Why is this like it is?'"
Elyse Fitzpatrick, author, Give Them Grace
The world is filled with mixed messages about pregnancy. Popular books and well-meaning family and friends offer you unsolicited advice about what to expect and how to stay healthy--sometimes resulting in joy and excitement but other times leading to discouragement and fear.
The Bible, too, has a lot to say about childbirth--offering real hope that nothing in this world can match. In Labor with Hope, Gloria Furman helps you see pregnancy, infertility, miscarriage, birth pain, and new life in the framework of the larger biblical narrative, infusing cosmic meaning into your personal experience by exploring how they point to eternal realities.
You will see that only Christ can provide the strength they desperately need in order to truly labor with hope.
