God’s Story of Life for Conception to Birth
Wonderfully Made is the best childhood book ever to introduce a young child to the wonder of God’s creation – the wonder and miracle of birth. From conception in the womb through the nine months within the mother’s womb Danika Cooley takes us on a journey of discovery… the discovery of life.
Beautifully illustrated and full of biblical perspective on every page.
Sit down with me, little one, and I’ll tell you again how you grew inside of me.
In week 10, you were the size of a strawberry. You and I were connected by the umbilical cord that circulated blood, bringing you oxygen and nourishment.
You had nostrils, an upper lip and miniature taste buds on your tiny tongue. God was forming tooth buds in your jaw, though you had no teeth.
Your legs were growing and your webbed fingers grew touchpads.
Your heart now had four chambers and beat quickly.
Then your brain and spinal cord continued to develop.
Next, your muscles were almost all where they were supposed to be, and you were practicing moving in the amniotic fluid.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” —
