Review

"As the mama of six, this is a book I wished someone had given to me in the beginning. In all their holy beginnings." ANN VOSKAMP, Author of the New York Times Best Seller One Thousand Gifts 


Waiting in Wonder will point you in exactly the right direction: preparing your heart as you prepare your home to receive new life. What a marvelous gift to give--to yourself, your growing child, or any expectant woman you may know. 
GARY THOMAS, Author of Sacred Marriage and The Sacred Search 


Waiting in Wonder is the perfect preparation for motherhood--part instruction manual, biology lesson (in the sweetest way), and spiritual journey. 
MARY DEMUTH, Author of Ordinary Mom, Extraordinary God 


Catherine has skillfully crafted a journal that will enlighten, inspire, and educate "mothers to be" for this momentous journey of motherhood. It leads mothers to understand the profound call God designed for women: to give birth, life, and love to precious children, whose souls will live throughout eternity. 
SALLY CLARKSON, Conference speaker, ministry leader, author of Mission of Motherhood

Having lost a daughter at 16 weeks gestation in my previous pregnancy, my current pregnancy has been high risk since the very beginning. Even with my trust and faith in God, every day has been a challenge in remaining positive instead of anxious as I have been at the doctor weekly and on and off mandatory rest. A friend of mine sent me Mrs. Larson's book a week ago. Beginning each morning with a devotional that walks you through scripture, and the joys and blessings of pregnancy has given me a renewed sense of strength. Even in the first few devotions, God already spoke through Mrs. Larson's words to me, and the specific emotions I have been struggling with. It has ministered to me and blessed me. I highly recommend this book not only to any expectant mother you may know, but also to an expectant mother who may be experiencing issues through a high risk pregnancy.

This devotional journal is beautifully written for the expectant mother's heart as she awaits the joy of the birth of her child. It has a place to write prayers and messages to the baby after each lesson and has a memory verse for each week for mom to guide her as she walks on this journey of pregnancy. I highly recommend as not just a devotional but as a pregnancy journal too. What a gift this would be to show the child years later when he/she is grown as a beautiful testimony.I cried as I went through this wishing I had this for my pregnancies with my daughter and son. I am recommending this to all my pregnant family and friends as it will speak to each of them as they await the redeeming births of their baby.

I wish I would have had a book like this when I was expecting my children! This book allows one to take the time to reflect on the true miracle of childbirth. I would have cherished this book and I know my teenaged children would have loved to read my hopes, fears and excitement about becoming their mother. Don't miss this opportunity to reflect upon the most important time of your life. You will treasure these memories forever.

This book is a nugget of gold for any woman who bears witness to the miracle of new life inside her and the brilliant Creator who sustains it! As a seasoned mother of four, I have often longed for a devotional book to use when walking my pregnancy journey. Although new mommas would perhaps find more quiet moments to meditate on Ms. Larson's words, even "experienced" expectant mothers would find this a valuable, encouraging, devotional and a precious keepsake for their children. One thing I especially liked was the layout. Nowhere in my journey of motherhood have I found time each and every day for devotional books, as I'm sure may be the case for others. "Waiting In Wonder" divides the book by trimester and then by week, with 4 or 5 "daily" devotionals available for meditation within that week, instead of required reading for each day of pregnancy.

All in all this is an excellent devotional offering both food for the soul and fascinating pregnancy milestones and information for the curious mind -- a terrific combination that's sure to please any expectant momma!

I'm thrilled to have this book to give to friends and ordered several to have them on hand. If I were expecting, this is the first book I would buy. Larson combines the wonder of creation (did you know that the cells that will form the heart jump to life and begin beating within two weeks of conception?) with deep, grounded theology. But that theology is in small bite-size pieces that are super easy to read and contemplate. I think the tone of the book is perfect -- not saccharine sweet, and while it's a book about pregnancy, not every daily lesson relates back to being a mother or having a child, but often uses the journey of pregnancy to relate to broader spiritual truths. It gives moms-to-be a spiritual companion for the journey that is understanding, hopeful, and faithful. I'm generally one to journal on my own rather than in the pages of a book, and if that's you, you can use the journaling prompts here for further reflection without worrying about filling them in. The devotionals alone are worth the price of the book. If you're debating between several books, buy this one. I imagine you'll love it like I do!

I started this journal and liked it for the first couple of months, but it just got old. She has you journal about all these deep, personal, spiritual issues - which is good to a point, but I thought it was going to be more of a keepsake for my child. I'm not sure I want my someday 21 year old reading how I was frustrated with not being able to have romantic relations with his father while I was pregnant with him. Awkward. And with the endless emotional, hormonal fluctuations that are already happening in pregnancy, I found it bringing up some anxiety - deep soul searching is exhausting work even when you aren't making another human being. Throw in some crazy pregnant lady feelings and my journal started to read a bit like a confession box transcript.
I think I would have liked something that had me record things like gas prices and ideas for names.

This was a great book that takes you week by week through your pregnancy and allows you to not only prepare yourself mentally and physically, but differently than many books spiritually as well. The book provides the reader with a great ability to delve deeper into scripture and explore their own thoughts about parenthood and what God wants from them as a parent. There is room in the book to journal which was nice and the author does a great job at helping the reader to pull their thoughts together in a time of excitement and anticipation!
