The Cover is Unveiled!




I am so excited to announce that we have a cover for our book! Yippee!

Isn't it pretty?

I am so excited about this because it means that we are getting so close to having this book done and out into the hands of women! Our publisher has pushed back the release date a few months but it is making progress and after two years of work it seems sort of surreal to even have it this far done... but so exciting!

We are starting pre-sales and so if you want to be one of the very first to get a copy (and get a 10% discount) you can reserve your copy by going here.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the book here is a brief explanation of the book and its purpose:
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 Gift of Giving Life does not advocate for any one type of birth or approach to prenatal care, rather it intends to unify our families and communities in regard to the sacredness of birth. We also aim to provide you with resources, information, and inspiration that you may not have had access to all in one place before.

Though we have written the book unabashedly for an LDS audience, we hope that birthing women, birth attendants and birth advocates of all faiths will find it useful and informative.
Also, I should also mention that ALL the money we make from the book will go towards publicizing the book and for future "Gift of Giving Life" projects we have in the works. As authors we don't really care about making money off of it but just want to help women rediscover an important part of their divine nature!

  1. It's so great you gor Lynn Callister to write the Foreward. I took my "Women's Weness" class from her and still have the baby blanket she made me when I had my first baby. She does great work for women around the world, but I'm sure you know all about that!
