Publisher's Description

Still your busy heart with The Midwife's Story: Meditations for Advent Times. In this season of waiting, it is easy to get caught up in the tension and the stress. There is great value in taking quiet time for reflection.

The Midwife's Story will allow you to ready yourself spiritually for the birth of the Divine. As the title suggests it is a poem about a very special midwife who may have been present at the birth of Christ. The poem, which reminds us that holiness comes to the world through a physical body, is accompanied by beautiful illustrations that are meant to help open your mind and heart, and bring new awareness and insight.

The second half of the book invites you to delve deeper, by exploring a different theme for each of the poem's eight sections. The Midwife's Story will assist you on the journey through Advent and help you learn what healing or growth God is wanting to bring to birth in you.
