You may have seen the new book, Three Decades of Fertility, circulating around the net. I have mentioned it here, but wanted to tell you a little bit more about this awesome project my friend, Natalie, has created.
First, you need to know Natalie is a woman of VISION. Her site is well-named and there you will find a ton of vision-inspiring work.
The important thing about vision for the Christian is that without it, we live in the moment, ignoring Christ’s command to “lay up treasures in Heaven”, and spend most of our lives dawdling in the unimportant, only to reach the end and realize we’ve tragically squandered most of the gift of this life.
That is not how God intended us to live! So as I talk about this book and the great work Natalie is doing to spur us on to a life beyond ourselves, I get excited thinking about the eternal implications.
Three Decades of Fertility takes you on a journey of ten ordinary women surrendering to an extraordinary God. It’s a book about living counter-culturally, daring to sacrifice the approval of man for a greater reward: a life lived in the loving hands of a Creator-God, trusting His sovereign goodness in the grand scheme of our existence.
Motherhood, as you already know, has been under attack for decades. Why? Because it is a powerful tool for the Kingdom in the hands of women devoted to the eternal work of making disciples. The enemy trembles at that.
So women deciding to embrace their fertility as a gift are especially the odd ones out. These stories will inspire and encourage your heart as you see the power of God magnified in the weaknesses of normal women who have dared to walk in the trusting care of a Heavenly Father.
