It has been such an encouragement to read through the journaling and stories of the author and I love the scripture verses she encourages us to look up and the questions for your own journal entries. But my favorite thing about this book are the Mothers Prayers at the end of each week. I have used these prayers to write some of my own for my sweet baby boy.
I recommend this book with 5 stars to anyone who is pregnant or as a wonderful gift for the mom-to-be.
1. A week-by-week explanation of what was happening with me and my baby.
2. A very personal journal of the author's own pregnancy...which helped me to appreciate that what I was going through was not uncommon...which certainly saved me from panic attacks :)
3. Meaningful scripture references that applied to pregnancy and motherhood.
4. Places to write down my own thoughts, feelings, fears, preparations.
5. Well thought out prayers to either recite out loud or read to myself (which is a MUST for anyone who, like me, sometimes doesn't know what to say to God).
6. Tips on my (and my baby's) health - food tips, exercise tips, mental health tips - you name it.
While reading this book, I felt like the author was sitting next to me - guiding, coaching, reassuring and best of all - PRAYING. Pregnancy can be scary; it's nice feeling the presence of the Holy Spirit providing comfort along the way.
I HIGHLY recommend buying this the minute you find out you are pregnant. Those first couple of weeks, before your first ultrasound, or even the first trimester, can be full of fear, but not with this book at your fingertips.
The prayers God has given Jennifer in this book along with strong scriptures to pray over my child have also allowed God to speak other truths into my pregnancy and shed light on unnecessary fears I've allowed to creep in. Her God-inspired words remind us that there IS power in prayer and God is ALWAYS in control, and to claim truth in Jesus' name.
There are character traits and even physical traits I see in my son that I KNOW are a direct result of things I was encouraged to pray for through this book. I am forever blessed by this tool.
This is my go-to book when pregnant and the best gift I've ever been able to give another new mom-to-be.
DO NOT hesitate to purchase this book and read it cover to cover!
