Read an Excerpt

Congratulations. You're expecting!
In this important time of anticipation, you probably have a lot of concerns and questions. While there are many books that will tell you about the medical facts of pregnancy, the foundations of parenting, and the way to discipline your children once they are born, this little devotional offers a guide to prepare spiritually during this special time in your lives.
Expectant Moments is a collection of more than ninety devotions for parents-in-waiting. These starters for meditation, prayer, and discussion help the two of you grow in unity as marriage partners, become better prepared parents, and mature in your faith as you deal with the physical, emotional, and spiritual changes of pregnancy. The book is divided into thirteen weeks (approximately one trimester), each week covering a different topic.
Written by Gene and Lisa Fant—new parents who understand the challenges you face—Expectant Moments deals honestly with such topics as the worry of how the marital relationship will change with the arrival of the baby; the wonder of your developing child; the lure of the endless variety of baby "stuff" that tempts you to buy, buy, buy; the choice of a name for your baby; and anxiety about the financial responsibilities of bringing a child into the world.
Let the Fants share with you the wonder and joy of expecting a new life. Expectant Moments helps new parents treasure the tender moments together as a family-to-be and meditate on God's miracle of love unfolding in the mystery of new life.

    awesome and meaningful !

    I really enjoyed this book! There are not many devotionals for expectant couples and this one was just what we needed as a couple. There were times when we both were a little choked up reading of this couples' struggles and joys. We also appreciated the humor and sweetness in the writing! This is not your typical devotional book. The couple seems real just like us! This is surely worth buying and reading with your spouse. I am buying some to use as gifts for my pregnant friends as well!
