    Pregnant, or planning a pregnancy? Don't miss out!

    I heard word that Sarah was planning this book a few years ago. At that time, I wasn't planning on adding to my family.

    Fast forward to now -- as I hold my sweet new baby in my arms ... I NEEDED this book last fall, to read through during my fifth pregnancy. My pregnancy was very much planned, but I struggled with the aches and pains of being an 'older' mother, chasing after a rambunctious set of twins as well as my older daughters. I whined .... a LOT.

    Sarah's writing style is so easy, like you're sitting down to drink coffee and chat with an old friend. She admits that pregnancy isn't always easy, and I love how she connects pregnancy with the mysteries of the Rosary. I also enjoyed seeing guest appearances from other favorite Catholic writers like Dorian Speed and Leticia Velasquez.

    Even though I have walked this road of pregnancy, labor and baptism many times, this book offers me a helping hand. It's a concrete reminder that I have a spiritual army of saints to lean on, as well as many women traveling the same path.

    Thank you, Sarah, for this labor of love.
