Praise for The Gift of Giving Life
“The diverse and profound perspectives of childbearing women are detailed in this remarkable book, The Gift of Giving Life. . . . As you read this book and reflect on its contents, you will never view giving birth as you did before.” -Lynn Clark Callister, PhD, RN, FAAN (foreword, The Gift of Giving Life)
“A fascinating book. In it we hear the voices of over two dozen women. Taken together, they provide evidence of the creativity and determination of contemporary women in The Church of Jesus Christ Latter-day Saints. They raise important questions about gender, generativity, and imitation of Christ.” ~Anna Harrison, National Endowment for the Humanities Winner, Professor of History of Christianity, Loyola Marymount University
“This is a beautifully and sensitively written book that speaks to the divine nature of conceiving and bearing children. The authors have insightfully imparted the beauty and joy, and the faith and trust, that is inherent in becoming a mother.” ~ Carole Thorpe, Hypnobabies VP and Director of Marketing & PR
“The Gift of Giving Life is more than a book about babies. It’s a celebration of love, hope, and the surprises that come with creating families.” ~Tamara Duricka Johnson, Author of 31 Dates in 31 Days
“The Gift of Giving Life is a collection of tender personal journeys in birthing andnurturing new life that provide moments of profound meaning to this common yet mystifying experience unique to women.” ~Bonnie Baliff-Spanvill, Former Director of The Women’s Research Institute, Brigham Young University
“If there remains within humanity any question at all that the body is a sacred temple and that birth… in every aspect… is holy temple work that infers the Atonement of Jesus Christ, then this volume is the cure for all doubts and doubters. Both women and men will find vital knowledge, understanding, and healing balm within this luminous tome of sacred accounts. If you are seeking to read about the power of God and how it relates to motherhood, you will find miracle upon miracle within these pages.” ~Rocket Cordray, author of The Veil Worker.
