“Did you not pour me out like milk and curdle me like cheese? You clothed me with skin and flesh, and knit me together with bones and sinews?” Job 10:11
One of my children brought in the package.
“Mom, what is it?”
“I got a chance to review this book that shows how a baby is made.”
“As you do not know the way the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, so you do not know the work of God who makes everything.” Ecclesiastes 11:5
The excitement in my house grew.
“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my souls knows it very well.” Psalm 139:14
I am pregnant right now with number five and my kids have been asking me, “What is happening with the baby now?” “How big is the baby?” “Baby in your tummy? Where?”
They saw the book and they wanted to read it right away, but I held off…I said we would read it together. “We are going to finally see all the different stages of where the baby is at!”
“My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance.” Psalm 139:15, 16a
I sat with my oldest and youngest on the couch and read through the book. My three year old got distracted after about 5 minutes and moved off, while my oldest just sat next to me and took it all in.
“The LORD called me from the womb, from the body of my mother he named my name.” Isaiah 49:1b
Then I let my daughter read it to herself and my middle boy got bits and pieces, but looked through the book himself. The illustrations and verses on each page just made a wonderful book that showed how a baby was beautifully, wonderfully and uniquely made and how God made a man and wife, who are committed to each other, have a special love they share where each shared a part of themselves and that came together. And week by week, the baby grew, with Bible verses (some I have already written above) expressing how God was the creator of the process, and yet scientific enough where you could talk about the process and the steps.
“In your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” Psalm 139:16b
My kids have pulled this book off the shelf over and over and I had to get in on the great give-away that my launch group is doing! Even yesterday my daughter said, “Mom, what week are you?” and opened up to the page and began to read it all to us, as well as the verse!
This will be a family treasure and I bet you would love this book, too!
So, to celebrate the release of Wonderfully Made: God’s Story of Life from Conception to Birth by Danika Cooley, I am hosting a wonderful giveaway with the rest of the launch team. The giveaway includes a hardcover copy of the book, along with several other books and products your family is sure to enjoy. The total value of the giveaway is nearly $600!
