So, the topic of birth has been on my brain a lot lately and it isn't just because I am a doula or because of my post on the importance of birth. A few months ago I started working on a project with some other LDS women to collect stories from LDS women about their spiritual experiences being pregnant, giving birth and becoming mothers. We've collected some amazing stories so far and it is really turning out to be an incredible project. If you have a spiritual insight into your birthing experience we would love to have it, especially if you birthed with an epidural or had a c-section (we are kind of short on those types of stories), you can email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also go here to see more about the book and what will be included.
For the book I've also been working on writing up the birth stories from women in the scriptures. There are some pretty amazing ones and like always I'm astounded by what we can learn from theses ancient women. I've decided that I am going to so a series on these birth stories in the next week or two... and I just wanted to give you all a heads up so you could start getting excited! Yippee! Woohoo! Oh Goodie!
Oh, also if you've been taking the women in the scriptures challenge I'd love to hear how it is going and what you've been learning. Remember if you ever want to do a guest post or write something on your blog that I could link to let me know!
