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

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.
