A Prayer Resource for Expecting Parents

I am a stay at home mom in Atlanta and I just completed a yearlong book project.

The book is called We Are Expecting! It's a keepsake book for the expectant Christian parents!

This prayer book leads expectant parents on a prayer journey from the time of conception, to their baby's birth and through adulthood using Bible verses, a lyrical poem and sweet illustrations. "The book telegraphs the truth about our lifelong hopes for our children and helps us see the big picture that God sees for our little ones," wrote a mother of three in a recent email.

There are so many unknowns during pregnancy. Every expectant parent worries about the health of his or her baby. It is very important to learn to lean on God during this exciting and sometimes stressful time. I pray that this prayer book will be a support for expectant parents and that it will encourage them to pray to God every day for their developing baby. is now selling hardcover and paperback copies of the book.

Special features in this book include:

  • Spaces to note milestone dates such as birth, baptism, wedding, etc.
  • Scripture references for each verse of the poem
  • A place to keep your child's first ultrasound picture
  • A place for you to include a favorite picture of your child
  • Space for parents to write down special prayers of their own

My hope is that parents will want to give this keepsake book to their adult child at the appropriate time, possibly after their child reveals to them, that they are now expecting! In this way a tradition of passing this book on is begun.

In Christ...
