Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have had a great week so far and are looking forward to the weekend.
Today, I wanted to talk to you about my current favorite infertility resources. It’s so easy to go through infertility feeling like you are the only one, but little do couples know, there are so many great books and other resources to help you throughout this journey.
Here is my list, in no specific order:
The first book, Taking Charge of your Fertility, is the first fertility related book I purchased. It was actually recommended by someone who had also gone through infertility. This book covers all of the basics of what you need to know about your body and fertility. It primarily focuses on the female body, but it does touch on male fertility as well. I would highly recommend this book. The book is a little intimidating at first, but I referenced this book when we first felt there was a problem and have also referenced it two years into our journey.
2. The Bible
This seems a little straight-forward, but I think many Christians who are going through infertility underestimate what they can find in the Bible. There are so many stories about infertility and each one reveals God’s amazing character.
Waiting for God to Fill the Cradle, is available in book and kindle form on Amazon. It is a one-month devotional for couples to read together, although you don’t have to necessarily read it with your spouse. I thought the points in the devotional were so good that I started a journal based on the points given throughout the month of reading. I often reference them for encouragement.
Supernatural Childbirth may be a misleading title for a book on infertility, but it addresses fears and lack of faith when it comes to having troubles conceiving. If you are a Christian who believes in confessing scripture over you and your spouse, then this is the book for you. The nice part of this book is that once you become pregnant, you can keep declaring and confessing scriptures up until your baby is born. I purchased this book a couple of weeks ago and confess and declare all of the scriptures daily, as well as pray the prayer to conceive. It’s a great starting point on infertility for your prayer life.
Every Bitter Thing is Sweet is a book written on the author’s testimony of going through infertility. I adore Sara’s writing style. I also purchased this book a couple of weeks ago and am almost finished with it. It is such a good read! She touches not only on her own journey but also common thoughts that we all think when going through infertility.
Barren Among the Fruitful is a great overall book that talks about infertility from a Christian perspective. Amanda, the author shares her story as well as other women’s stories. She also gives great facts about infertility and how to still have a positive, Christ-centered outlook on life.
7. Infertility Encouragement from Sarah’s Laughter
This daily reading plan is available on the YouVersion app. For those of you who are not aware of what YouVersion is, it is an app you can download on your phone where you can read the entire bible as well as sign up for daily reading plans. You can even set reminders so you don’t miss a day. I am currently reading this plan on YouVersion. The best part? It’s free! 🙂
8. Sarah’s Laughter Infertility Podcast
If you aren’t a huge reader, then this is finally the resource for you! 🙂 This is a podcast from the same couple who put together the YouVersion reading plan in the above resource. I also have been listening to their podcasts lately and they’re great!
Do you have any favorite books or podcasts that you listen to? I’d love to hear them!
Have a great weekend everyone!
