BOOKS

  • Holding Onto Hope: A Pathway through Suffering to the Heart of God by: Nancy Guthrie

    • This book is amazing. Nancy tells her own story while simultaneously taking the reader through Job's story of suffering. Nancy had one healthy son, followed by a daughter and then another son who were born with a rare condition that caused them to slowly die within six months of being born.

  • I Will Carry You: The Sacred Dance of Grief and Joy by: Angie Smith

    • This book is also amazing. Angie Smith is an amazing writer. She beautifully weaves in the story of Lazarus as she tells the story of her pregnancy with her daughter, who was diagnosed with conditions causing her to be "incompatible with life" while she was still in the womb. In the beginning of the book, Angie briefly mentions that she had a miscarriage as well and how hard that was for her.
