Spirituality and Birth Book

My husband and I were honored to contribute some of our experiences and stories as content for this book: The Gift of Giving Life.

Here's a brief synopsis:

The Gift of Giving Life: Rediscovering the Divine Nature of Pregnancy and Birth offers something that no other pregnancy book has before–a spiritual look at pregnancy and birth by and for LDS women and other women of faith. With inspiring birth stories and essays from dozens of real LDS women, scriptures, words of the prophets and other spiritual texts related to pregnancy and birth, The Gift of Giving Life if the essential pregnancy companion for every LDS woman.

The book is scheduled for release in December, but you can preorder your copy today! I'm personally looking forward to getting my own copy.

Update: I just learned that the release date for the book had to be pushed back to Feb 2012. However, there will be a giveaway and you can enter to win a free copy of the book.
