Today, on Hear It On Sunday, Use It On Monday I’ve decided to give away (and review) a newly released book. The Christian Mama’s Guide To Having A Baby, by Erin MacPherson.
What book would you give an expectant mother? Many of us have found books like What to Expect When You’re Expecting useful, but have you ever looked for other alternatives -- like a practical, witty guide for expectant mothers, from a Christian perspective?
The Christian Mama’s Guide may be exactly what you’re looking for.
What’s so special about this book?
Well, to start, MacPherson's writing is tender, blunt, and hilarious. She obviously reads the minds of expectant mothers! The Christian Mama's Guide is full of practical advice, humor, and spiritual insight. MacPherson squarely tackles the questions that everyone is afraid to ask --especially Christians -- ranging from sex, intimacy, exercise, and alcohol.
The Christian Mama's Guide is decisive yet not dogmatic. MacPherson provides a much-needed voice for today's expectant mother who longs to follow God in a fast-paced and complex world -- a mother who is savvy, excited, and often scared to death! She comforts expectant mothers with the voice of a "big sister" that has gone before them.
I wish this book existed 10 years ago when I was expecting my first born. While there is no lack of information for expectant mothers, there is clearly a lack of spiritual mentoring -- MacPherson takes an important step to bridge the mentoring gap for new mothers.
So, don’t you want a copy of this book -- for a friend, a co-worker, or even for yourself?
Just post a comment before Friday at 5:00 EST. I’ll be drawing two winners for a give-away!
