Waiting in the Word: A Couple’s Journey is an honest, hopeful, and hard look at fertility and family planning within marriage. We want to tell the truth about what has been amazing and agonizing about growing our families with natural family planning. We want to help you dive into your own story, too.
Join us for a 4 week lectio divina-based study on concerns and challenges around fertility. Each week we will explore one theme through reflection, Scripture, prayer, and conversation—complete with discussion questions for conversation with your spouse.
Included in your Waiting in the Word study is an e-book with personal reflections and daily Scripture study, a printable companion journal for the study, and a printable bookmark to help you become comfortable with the practice of lectio divina. The study can be used by yourself, with your spouse, or as part of a Bible study.
New for this study: guest writers from a wide variety of backgrounds (including infertility, miscarriage, hyper-fertility, foster parenting, and adoption) and reflections written by our husbands to show you how spouses bring different perspectives to the same experiences. We have also included discussion guides for talking through all of this with your spouse.
Whatever your story—whether you have more kids than you expected or fewer than you hoped, whether you use NFP or whether you’ve never heard of it, whether you’re newlyweds or married for years—Waiting in the Word: A Couple’s Journey will reach you wherever you are today.
