Includes excerpts on fetal development from First Nine Months The Lord gifts people so they can serve others. That's what He wants. He wants us to take what He gives us and use it to help others know Him and choose to believe in Jesus, their Savior. Then He wants those people to learn from us what it is to be "salt" and "light" to the world.

It is a warm, engaging biblical journey that is comforting and encouraging to those going through a challenging time in their lives. Melissa Heiland beautifully expresses her love for the Lord and her commitment to women and the unborn. Women will be transformed in heart and spirit by the blessings of this work. This devotional should be available for all women with the gift of pregnancy and may it find its way into all pregnancy resource centers to impact the lives and souls of many. -Frank Imbarrato MD, Medical Director, My Choice Pregnancy Care Center, New Windsor, NY, www.MyChoicePCC.com What I love about Melissa is her heart and passion for women, especially women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and the immobilizing fear that comes with it. With almost 20 years of service in pregnancy care centers, there is no one more qualified than Melissa to reach into the heart and soul of a scared and overwhelmed expectant mother. We have so little time with the clients that come into our center, and so much we want to share with them. I love being able to give them a copy of A Mother's Journey, knowing what a great source of loving encouragement and truth it will be to them. -Andrea Krazeise, Founder, Sanford and Oviedo Crisis Pregnancy Centers, Author of He Came Back for Me Melissa Heiland is a wife and mother of six.
