On Having a Baby by Crystal Rowe

On Having a Baby: One Woman’s Journey through Pregnancy and the First Year

by Crystal Rowe [Bibledude Press]

I had no idea what to expect when I got pregnant. I read books, watched movies, talked to other people who had been pregnant before. People told me that my life would change once I had a baby – but no one told me that I would change.

This book includes essays written during my journey through pregnancy and the first year of motherhood. Most were originally published at Soul Munchies, but there are several that you won’t find anywhere else.

This is my story. The story of one family. My prayer, as you read this book, is that you see a glimpse of God in the journey I traveled.

Your story may be similar in some ways, but it will also be different. No matter what, it will be your story. As you travel along your own journey, may you know you are never alone – that God is with you every step of the way.
