Publisher's Description

These meditations on childbirth come from the heart and mind of a new grandfather. When he was told he was going to be a first-time grandfather of two babies who would be born five months apart, he will tell you he could think of nothing else. What would be his gift to his children, their spouses, and his grandchildren? He decided to write a book for them. As he often does when presented with a new challenge, he prayed and turned to Holy Scripture, which serves as the basis for the book’s meditations. Looking at verses, passages, and stories in the Bible that told of birth, he became inspired to write, not a doctrinal treatise on childbirth, but a grandfather’s expression of love and grace as applied to the miracle of birth. These meditations are also reflections on God’s creation of the world; the Psalms; Mary’s and Zechariah’s songs; the births of Samuel, Moses, Jesus, Jeremiah, and Samson. There is also a special meditation written for the child in the womb. The meditations are paired with accompanying art to present childbirth as an journey ordained by God, filled with the adventures of pain and joy that connect parent and child with God. This book should be read by grandparents as encouragers and supporters, parents actively participating in the childbirth journey, and all who love them. Readers will see a sometimes humorous and always deeply spiritual reflection on embracing “a time to be born” as a God-centered passage of life.
