Comfort for Your Empty Arms and Heavy Heart
The progression should have been natural. You got married, and children were supposed to follow in due time. But every month that ends in a period rather than a pregnancy has you feeling more and more depressed. Perhaps you even find yourself avoiding people and places with children because it is just too painful.
Amy Baker and Daniel Wickert help you see God’s presence and provision for you in the midst of your pain. With compassion and understanding, they walk through some of the struggles and pitfalls of dealing with infertility and offer practical help for leaning on Christ, connecting with your spouse, and engaging with others.
