Review

I found the book a joy to read and enlightening. Great examples of the author's personal experiences that were mapped to the Scriptures she used. This correlation really helped in understanding how to apply God's truth in all areas of life. Wonderful reminder of the authority we have in Christ! ~PN --Amazon.com-Kindle Store

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

While saying I "hate" this book is a bit strong, I more than "don't like" it, so that is why the single star.

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.

The philosophy that "if you pray enough, it'll happen" is heartbreaking and damaging to anyone struggling to carry the heavy cross of infertility. I started to read this book, only to realize that the author is promoting faith that leads to a reward: physical fertility. Ultimately, she misses the point. Yes, we are to have hope and faith, but that hope and faith will not necessarily lead us to having and raising children, as if that's the end of the journey. Rather, we are called to faith, hope, love and fruitfulness REGARDLESS of if we are ever to overcome physical infertility. With that spiritual reality comes acceptance of the cross, the ability to faithfully carry it every day of our lives in solidarity with Christ, uniting ourselves to his redemptive suffering and maintaining our faith even if we never see the reward while on this earth, especially when we feel most abandoned. We need the grace to accept God's will for our lives even if that plan doesn't include children. If, then, we fall victim to the lie that we could ever "pray enough" or "have enough faith" that God will bless us with children, we are missing the opportunity to truly grow spiritually. Why? Because we make children an idol and try to use our faith as a means to acquire them. Christ must be the sole center of our attention.

I found "A Seed of Hope - God's Promises of Fertility" both inspiring and practical. As a man, I read it looking for how a husband can understand and support his wife as she deals with infertility. I highly recommend that any husband dealing with fertility issues in his marriage should read this book. The wife is not in this situation by herself. With the knowledge gained from this book he will be better able to partner with his wife in seeking the promises of God, supporting his wife and reducing the stress in their marriage.

98. That is the current number of copies I have purchased and given away to other women struggling with infertility. And it's because I absolutely love the insightful words this faith based devotional offers. It's simple. It's practical. It's biblical. And the hope it brings me with each entry is like a breath of spiritual fresh air. Can I just say again that I love it? Because it is through the author, Evangeline Colbert's own personal struggle and victory over infertility that provide me with powerful inspiration and encouragement I need to live my day faithfully in a hope-filled focus. A focus that enables me to continually keep believing and standing firm that victory over childlessness is mine...and even yours.

I found Evangeline's first book, "A Seed of Hope - God's Promises of Fertility", a breeze to read and a breath of spiritual fresh air. I believe that God looks with a smile on her and how she intelligently, eloquently and with unmistakeable genuine heartfelt care has used her education, talents and experiences to share her victory over infertility. More outstanding to me is how her well written and insighful work presents guidance to women that reaches even greater dimensions in our lives than just how to 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." Thank you. -sq

I am a woman who is experiencing infertility. I have been through years of trying, and this has caused me to end up with depression and no hope. I found this book while I was searching for Christian infertility sites. Since I have purchased this book, my whole outlook on my current situation has changed! I am now a woman full of hope who is believing that God is working on a miracle in my life. This book had spoken God's word to me, and now I am living a hopeful life, speaking His word in my daily walk with him. If you or anyone that you know is going through the pain of infertility, I highly recommend this book! It is my nightly encouragement!
