Book review: A Walk in the Valley: Christian Encouragement for your Journey through Infertility

Authors: Julie Arduini, Heidi Glick, Elizabeth Maddrey, Kym McNabney, Paula Mowery, and Donna Winters

Book Description:
Everyone's journey through infertility is different. Even women who have the same physical problems will have different courses of treatment, different responses, and different emotional ups and downs as they walk this path. But we also have so much in common: the hurt, anger, frustration, pain, sorrow, hope and joy that we have experienced along the way. We are women who have experienced infertility. Some of us have gone on to conceive, others have adopted, and others remain childless. All of us have found peace in the loving arms of our Father God at the end of our journey. We want to share our experiences and thoughts with you. It is our hope and prayer that you'll be encouraged. -Amazon

Book Review:
Although I've not experienced infertility myself, I've had people I'm close to go through this very difficult journey. The authors open their hearts as they share stories of pain, joy, hope, and faith. Every woman going through infertility, miscarriage, and trials of trying to have a baby can find something that will encourage and educate. The authors include their husbands thoughts and experiences as well as practical advice, from what to ask a doctor to the details of what they experienced during testing. At the end of each chapter, the writers give the readers an opportunity to work through their own story by digging in and answering questions, writing prayers, and praises as well as recording their own questions. I recommend A Walk in the Valley not just for anyone going through infertility, but for anyone who needs to understand their family and friends' struggle. I learned so much.

I received a free copy of A Walk in the Valley from Clalfont House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
