Labor with Hope: Gospel Meditations on Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Motherhood

By Gloria Furman, With Jesse Scheumann

The world is full of advice for pregnant women. Popular books and well-meaning family members and friends offer expectant moms mountains of (often unsolicited) advice. While this advice sometimes leads to increased joy and excitement, all too often it results in feelings of discouragement and fear. The Bible, perhaps surprisingly, also has a lot to say about pregnancy—offering real, life-shaping hope that nothing in this world can match. In 25 short meditations, Gloria Furman helps women see labor and birth from the perspective of the whole Bible, infusing cosmic meaning into their personal experience and directing their focus off of themselves and onto Christ. Written for women of all ages—especially expectant moms—this book highlights the limitless power and strength that Christ offers to all who rely on him, enabling women to truly labor with hope.
