Waiting in Wonder by Catherine Claire Larson

Saturday, August 31, 2013

A devotional journal inviting women to embrace the spiritual journey that awaits as they prepare for the high and holy calling of motherhood.

Expecting a baby is a time of unfolding wonders--from the jolt of first heartbeat, to the buds of tiny fingers, to the flutter of little kicks. During pregnancy, a mother's body nourishes this quiet miracle's development. But through the trials of morning sickness, the anticipation of labor, and the questions of whether she'll be a good mother, she'll need her own nourishment--both physical as well as spiritual. She'll want to nurture her own heart so that she may one day strengthen the spiritual life of this child entrusted to her.

"Waiting in Wonder "guides readers through the weeks of pregnancy with devotions designed to encourage, strengthen, and inspire. Each devotion includes Scripture and journaling space for writing personal thoughts, prayers, dreams, even love letters to the growing baby. And when baby is born, mother will hold a lifelong keepsake for rereading and reliving a truly wonder-filled time of physical change and spiritual growth.

Goodreads Summary

I have yet to experience pregnancy, but when I am pregnant, I know the lessons in this book will
help me.  Waiting in Wonder is a physical and spiritual guide that will support and teach women through the weeks of their pregnancies.  There is room for reflection, thoughts, hopes, and dreams to be jotted down and shared with the child after they have grown.
Waiting in Wonder would be a great gift from any expecting woman.  I am so happy to have a
copy to save for when I do become pregnant and am glad to have read it now.  My mother read Waiting in Wonder, too.  She sighed after finishing, saying she wished that it had been around when she was pregnant with my sister and me!  Anyone will grow spiritually after reading this book.  Waiting in Wonder is a blessing!

    D'awwwww! Sounds sweet!

  1. I don't know if I'd read it anytime soon just because I'm really not going to have kids for a while.I am nowhere near possibly becoming pregnant, but when it does happen in the distant future I totally want this book. Heck, I might even get it now and just keep it until the time is right. But this I must have because I do sometimes wonder what kind of parent I would be. I would want my kid to be a good, spiritual person. Probably because I feel like I'm maybe not as spiritual as I should be. Thanks for the review!

    Aww, this book sounds perfect. And the cover is super cute. I don't have children and I expect I won't have any in the near future but I'll definitely keep an eye for this one. Fantastic review! Thank you =D.
