My Thoughts on Waiting in Wonder:
Waiting in Wonder – Growing in Faith While You’re Expecting is the perfect gift for any woman of faith who is expecting. As of right now I know of about eight women in my church that are pregnant that I can’t wait to get this devotional journal for. It walks through each of the trimester’s and guides the mom to write down prayers and praises at each stage of the baby’s development.
I can’t think of anything more precious than a guided prayer and praise walk throughout the development of your baby. What a precious gift you can give your child as they get older…they can read with you how you specifically prayed for them as they were growing in your belly.
You can also visit the author’s website for a free download of Waiting in Wonder memory verses. She encourages you to carry them with you, put them on your bathroom mirror, or even tuck them in your hospital bag when labor draws near. I love love love this idea, I’ve encouraged women for many years to carry a spiral index card holder full of verses that they were memorizing during different seasons of their walk.
This is a must have gift for any newly expectant moms in your world!
About the Book:
A devotional journal inviting women to embrace the spiritual journey that awaits as they prepare for the high and holy calling of motherhood.
Expecting a baby is a wonderful and exciting time for a mother-to-be. She’ll experience many joys as she shares the news with family and friends, hears the baby’s heartbeat for the first time, and bonds emotionally while dreaming about the baby to come. She’ll also experience anxieties such as the trials of morning sickness, anticipating the process of labor, and wondering if she’ll be a good mother. They are all times to be remembered and treasured for a lifetime.
With Waiting in Wonder, readers are guided through the weeks of pregnancy with devotions for reflection and guided questions for pondering deeper into their experiences both spiritually and physically. Each devotion includes Scripture and journaling space for writing personal thoughts, prayers, dreams, even love letters to the growing baby. And when baby is born, mother will be spiritually blessed and hold a lifelong keepsake for rereading and reliving a truly wonder-filled time.
