Longing For Motherhood: Holding on to Hope in the Midst of Childlessness

Chelsea Patterson Sobolik

$18.99

Paperback
:

When hopes for motherhood are deferred...

Childlessness remains a taboo topic in today's culture, especially in Christian circles. Many women feel isolated, ashamed, or uncertain of how to reconcile this trial with a loving God. The death of the dream of motherhood-whether from infertility, barrenness, miscarriage, or the loss of a child-is one of the hardest journeys women can walk through.

In Longing for Motherhood, Chelsea Patterson speaks to these burdens specifically. She shares vulnerably about her own journey of childlessness and how she has ultimately come to view her story through the lens of Scripture and our hope in Christ. While remaining tender and empathetic toward suffering and longing, she discusses the comfort we have in knowing that the Lord is sovereign over all, and that His love is sufficient to carry us through any and every situation.

A timely book for women struggling with childlessness, as well as for pastors, friends, and family who want to care for them well, Longing for Motherhood is a tender, truthful companion for a difficult journey.

"Trials have a way of revealing where our hearts are, where we've been placing our trust, and where we've been seeking joy, hope, and security" - Author Chelsea Patterson Sobolik

Unlike many other books that only address the issue of childlessness via infertility, this book acknowledges other causes such as child loss, medical conditions and even through life circumstances.  It offers great comfort and advice on how to deal with this trial, how to draw closer to God in your grief and how to allow God to work in your life throughout the hardship.  This book also has a wonderful chapter written to Pastors, church members and loved ones on how they can help support those who are experiencing childlessness.  I particularly loved the last chapter in the book that contained prayers to pray and 30 scriptures to sustain you in the midst of your childlessness.  

Throughout this book the message is the same.  Childlessness does not define who you are and you should be particularly intentional on not allowing it to.  That hope and grief can coexist and that they aren't at odds with each other. 

"The greatest role of a woman is not to be a mother, but rather, to glorify God with our whole lives in whatever circumstances we find ourselves" - Author Chelsea Patterson Sobolik
