Evangeline Colbert s well-written and insightful work presents guidance to women that reaches even greater dimensions in our lives than just how to hold tight to God's promise when facing the challenge of infertility. Evangeline teaches us life lessons. She might be an engineer but she writes with the heart of a poet. I am awed and inspired and wait for more of her "good works." ~SQ --Amazon.com-Kindle Store

More About the Author
Over 7 million Americans suffer with infertility. Evangeline's most recent book, "Infertility Sucks! How to Maintain Hope in Your Marriage During Infertility" is full of tips about keeping the strength of the marriage the priority, even in the midst of the difficult struggle of infertility. It contains practical activities for couples to help them ensure that their marriage not only survives infertility but it also thrives.
Her book, "A Seed of Hope---God's Promises of Fertility," is a devotional. In the daily readings, she relates to the emotional, physical, relational, and financial pain and havoc that infertility causes by bringing sources of hope from the Bible to the reader. The act of speaking God's Word is the foundation of the powerful devotions. She shares personal stories, practical tips, and insights of victory. The devotions help women to tap into the strength of God's promises through affirmations and address the issue of infertility by confidently believing and speaking the Word of God.
Both books are written from the perspective of Evangeline's personal struggle with and victory over infertility.
Evangeline was chosen as a featured author for Group Publishing's devotional, "If I Can Do All Things, Why Can't I Find My Car Keys?" She has also published articles in various magazines, newspapers, and blogs, including Vertikal, San Tan News, and Mom at Last.
She has served more than 20 years as a Bible teacher and is known for sharing God's Word with practical application for daily living.
Evangeline's mission is to point people to Jesus by teaching them to use "Spoken Faith" in all areas of life. She enjoys helping people learn how to speak the Word of God while believing the Word of God and expecting His Word to be performed.

I have been experiencing infertility for almost 4 years now and I have spent the better part of these years working hard to make sense of this spiritual journey. This book nearly set me back to a time when I thought God was punishing me or that I wasn't praying hard enough or trusting in Him hard enough, I had to remind myself that infertility is not a punishment and there is nothing that I can do to earn a child. Children are a gift, given by God and the absence of that gift is painful - the most painful thing I have experienced in my life. But there is nothing I can do to deserve or earn it. By learning to say "Thy will be done" rather than "Give me what I want", that is where true fertility begins, it doesn't happen over night and it's not easy.
The title states "God's Promises of Fertility" - and God does promise us fertility and fruitfulness, but it does not always come in the form of a child. I do believe this book has good intentions, and Evangeline's experience of infertility and motherhood should not be minimized, but I think it misses the mark. It places a child as the ultimate goal, where in a Christian life God is the ultimate goal. There is no talk of spiritual motherhood or feminine genius lived outside of motherhood, only physical, biological motherhood. Yes, the feelings and worries she describes are real, but the advice on how to cope with them leads one whose prayer is answered with "not yet" or "never" to question whether she has done something wrong.
