There has been something brewing in my heart and my life that I've been wrestling over to make public for a long time. It's a story. It's a sad story with a happy ending yet to come. It's a story I vowed to God that if He wanted me to, I would tell the world about.
This isn't a story I wanted to tell. It took me a while to even write it down because then it would make it real. I don't want it to be real. But I know there is someone out there that needs to hear it. And since I am a big believer in people telling their stories for the encouragement of others, I will tell mine.
This isn't a pity party. I often say that broken people can seldom relate with someone who isn't currently broken. Broken people relate with other broken people, so that's what this is. I really wanted to wait til I was on the other side of this messy part of my life, but I know that's not the best state to be in to communicate the emotion, desperation, and yet the hope I have.
In every season, God is still God and I have a reason to sing, I have a reason to worship.
This book is for us.
For me, because writing out the ugly and raw feelings of this battle was healing and insightful.
For you, because, well, I want you to know you're not alone. Whoever you are.
Some of you might remember the 5-part series I did on our recent struggle through infertility. Thankfully, the stormy waters have settled a bit since then, and though the brokenness has been far from mended, perspective is beginning to outweigh the misery.
You all responded with such encouragement and warmth and I wanted to thank you. Ask Ty, I would cry reading your emails, comments, and Facebook messages.
It was so freeing to know that I wasn't carrying this burden alone anymore and that more of you than I had known, had been through this nightmare.
What is the book?
In this short E-book (downloadable, not in print), I have expanded on that 5-part series. There are more details, stories, inspiration, thoughts and emotions that depict this oh-so-common battle I am discovering, a lot of women experience.
What this book is NOT.
This book is NOT medicinal nor diagnostic.
This book is NOT open for opinion or commentary.
This book is NOT sugar-coated.
This book is NOT meant to generalize every person's story.
This is mine and you have yours. Some may be similar and others will be quite different.
Cost $0.99 (only to cover the cost of design work.)
I didn't want to charge the average amount for this book because I feel one shouldn't have to pay to be related with. One pays for product or services, but not encouragement and relationship.
