Giving life – growing, nurturing, sustaining another inside you – is truly a gift given to women. Having recently birthed our tenth child I can attest to that divine calling.
Two years ago before giving birth to Ganache, I had the pleasure of reading a book with a unique mission. The Gift of Giving Life shares the experiences of many LDS women as they journey through pregnancy and birth, infertility and miscarriages, relying on spiritual guidance to help them in their choices, whatever those choices may be. It is so wonderful to read these amazing stories that draw us together as women, as mothers. When asked if I could host a stop on the book tour for The Gift of Giving Life I responded with a wholehearted “Yes!” I was already in the middle of reading it yet again in preparation for the birth of Junior Mint.
I have known when it was time for each of my children to join our family. It is amazing to me how similar, yet different, each of their births have been. I have learned that though they come from the same gene pool they are each unique with talents and abilities God has bestowed upon them. Motherhood is hard. Knowing what to do, what to teach, how to teach, when to teach is hard. Through it all I have learned that first and foremost they are the Lord’s. And because they are His He will help me.
He will help you too. Whether you are suffering through yet another miscarriage or the heartache of infertility, the Lord is there. Whether you choose to home birth or have a planned C-section, the Lord is there. As you read the experiences of the women in this book you will see how the Lord was there for each of them. In the joys and triumphs, the disappointments and sorrows, He is made manifest. His is the work of creation after all. The sacredness of birth is shared on every page of this book.
