When Place Matters, Guest Post by Lani Axman

Today’s host for the Virtual Book Tour is Cherylyn at Mamas and Babies. Cherylyn is one of the women who contributed a birth story to The Gift of Giving Life. We are thrilled she shared her story and grateful she’s a part of our Virtual Book Tour.

Cherylyn requested that I (Lani) write a guest post for her blog. Here’s an excerpt:

I believe God sometimes prepares “lands of promise” where significant events in our lives are to occur. Sometimes we are guided to those places without our seeking direction, but I feel confident that God delights when we seek divine guidance.  As The Book of Mormon teaches us:

Blessed art thou, . . . because of thy faith, for thou has sought me diligently, with lowliness of heart.  And inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments, ye shall prosper, and shall be led to a land of promise; yea, even a land which I have prepared for you; yea, a land which is choice above all other lands. (1 Nephi 2:19-20)

While it may not matter in every case, sometimes God has a specific place in mind for a child’s birth.
