Life to the Full PB: Stories of Infertility, Faith and a Hope-Filled Future
|Author: Debra Vermeer|
|Publisher: St Pauls Publications Australia||Pages: 160|
Life to the Full tells the stories of seven couples, including the author and her husband, who have walked their own path through infertility. Through the voice of the women involved, these couples bravely and honestly share their intimate struggles and joys and allow us in as they ask deep questions of themselves and God. It is a book of struggle, but overwhelmingly, a book of hope, as each couple opens themselves to God’s will in their life, finding not only a measure of peace in their infertility, but also new callings and new dreams that have given rise to surprising fruitfulness.
‘I heartily commend this book not only to those travelling the road of “uncooperative fertility” but also those in parish ministry or with loved ones on that journey – it will open many big-hearted conversations and transform the way we approach infertility in our communities.’
