When a PR rep contacted me about The Pregnancy Companion: A Faith-Filled Guide for Your Journey to Motherhood, I thought, "Oh, Christ, I can't give away a faith based pregnancy guide." but then I thought about it a little more and thought "why not?". I mean, just because I'm not a religious person doesn't mean some of you guys aren't and you may really enjoy something like this.
It is written by two women, Jessica Wolstenholm and Dr. Heather Rupe, who have combined practical pregnancy information along with their Christian faith. It is organized to follow an expectant mother’s OB appointment schedule and faith-filled journey through pregnancy.
Even if it wouldn't be my cup of tea, I have to appreciate the sentiment that pregnancy is something that goes beyond our control and that we should enjoy it as much as possible.
Dr. Rupe explains: "My prayer is that this book will enable women to enjoy as much of their pregnancy as possible, relishing the hope that is growing inside them, and not be deprived of their peace by unnecessary fears.”
Sounds like a good prayer to me even if I do take the Lord's name in vain everytime I deal with toy packaging.
So if you like the sound of this book and you want one, just leave a comment below along with your email address and I'll pick a winner tomorrow.
