“Worshipful. Meditative. Thought-provoking. Celebratory. Aubry Smith, author of Holy Labor, once again offers a fantastic tool in this pregnancy journal that lifts our eyes to worship the Creator of life and draws our attention to the individual transforming work He stands ready to do in us through the journey of pregnancy, childbirth, and child-raising if we will let Him. Smith artfully illuminates the intersection of God’s eternal purposes and gospel reality with our physical, emotional, and spiritual experience in a way that leads the reader to the Good Shepherd of her soul.”
–Margit Woodruff, mother and certified nurse midwife
“A beautifully guided journal that invites its readers to take part in this amazing gift of co-laboring with Christ in a way only pregnant women can experience. While pregnant we often forget what incredible work we are doing, but Aubry gently brings the gospel back into focus and helps us set our eyes on the author and finisher of our faith.”
–Rebekah Thompson, CD(DONA), author of The First Six Weeks: Thriving Naturally on Your Postpartum Journey
“Aubry has written a treasure trove of pregnancy preparation for new moms in her new book, a thoughtful guide and memory book that will act as a companion journey to her earlier release, Holy Labor. The Christian Mom’s Pregnancy Journal is a gem of a book that you will want to read straight through yet at the same time sit and savor each week as it comes, taking note of the thoughtful prayers and space for personal reflection. Aubry even included postpartum weeks, complete with space to write letters to baby, as an avenue to continue your own growth as a mother of faith during a time of immense growth, for you and baby alike. This thoughtful book will guide you as your baby develops and will bless you as you prepare your body and mind for birth and motherhood. As a fellow birth worker and mom of two, I am so encouraged to see more resources in this space of preparing for birth as a Christian, and I highly recommend it!”
–Katherine Leigh Newsom, doula, childbirth educator, and author of Chosen: Birth + Faith Through a Doula Lens
