Book Give Away

You have a chance to win one of five copies of this book!!!!
Starting a family is a soul-shaping, world-altering experience. Unfortunately, in a culture of competing values and protracted timelines, couples are increasingly backing their way into parenting or missing it altogether. By the time the average couple tries to have kids, they are often beyond their late twenties and surprised to learn they’re sliding past the peak of their fertile years. In Start Your Family, Steve and Candice Watters encourage couples to be intentional about their timeline in the early years of marriage and to trust God to help them boldly launch their families. Responding to the most common doubts and hurdles, they offer biblical inspiration for the questions, “Why have kids?”, “When is the best time to start?”, and “How can we fit kids into our lives?”

Candice and Steve work for Focus on the Family. This would be a great book for any couple thinking of having children or to give to anyone you know who wants to start a family or a newly married couple.

Check out the website here.

I will draw on Friday at noon!

Leave me a comment and let me know if you would like to win!

This is a wonderful book! I have started it, but not yet finished. However, every page I've read has some little point that deserves to be high-lighted or underlined. I love books like that! If I were to win one of these books, I'd give it to my sister-in-law. They're unsure about when they'd like to start their family, but I think this would give them a new outlook on things.

MELISSA said...

HappyascanB said...

Katy said...

I would love to win this book! My husband and I are coming up on our 7th wedding anniversary and have tried for 22 months to have a baby without success. I have fertility issues due to PCOS and am extremely overweight. At times I do not feel that I deserve to become a mother. I have been trying to lose weight in order to safely begin fertility treatments but often sabotage myself when I start thinking I am undeserving again. I think this book would be a great motivator to help me toward my goal.

alli said...

gwen said...

Kelly,

My husband and I are still in the discussions of when to have children and I think this book would really help out with the decision making or just praying about having God lead us to the right decision. My husband recently told me that his biological clock is ticking, which I definetly see as a good sign! Ha! I would love to have this book to read!

JLI said...

My husband & I are newly married (December 08) and are already trying to have a family. There is some question as to fertility, but we are trusting it all into God's hands, knowing He is able! We would love to win this book!

Jessica said...

My husband and I were married young and waited a few years before deciding to embark on parenthood. We felt like God had finally called upon us to bring a child into the world however after two years of trying (naturally and medically) we still have not recieved our miracle child. So many people have questioned if we really chose the "right time" to start a family. I would love to read this book and see their thoughts/insights on starting a family.

Amanda said...

Kelly,
The issue of when to have children has always been a struggle with me! I'm so scared that by taking my time into my own hands rather than leaving it to God to decide will leave me without children when I decide I'm ready. I would love to hear from real-life experiences and hear from fellow Christians who wrestle with the same thoughts.
Amanda

This book seems fitting to my life at the moment. I am getting married this coming June and of course the discussion of childbearing is coming up in conversations between my fiance and myself. I do know it is a bit early to be thinking of that. However, we are trying to decide whether to wait or try earlier. I love reading books especially ones of this kind and would love the opportunity to be entered into the drawing to win a copy of it. Thank you for holding this giveaway Kelly!

I would love to get and read this book. I just got back from the doctor today. I am taking fertility medicine and will need to increase my dosage next month (they are not sure if I ovulated or not). But cross your fingers and pray because I might have already ovulated...of course, no definite answer today with the sonogram!

I would love to win this book. My husband and I are currently praying that God will show us the way with our future. We have been married for 5 years and feel it is getting close, it is just a huge step that we are fearful to make. I have several female issues all of which can be worked around, but I long to be a mother and wonder if I ever will! Even if I don't win, I will have to purchase this! By the way your blog is such an inspiration to me!

Kelly!!
Wow, it is the Lord who placed this in my life today. I look at your blog on a every other day basis and it is amazing as so many have expressed to you. I just returned from an amazing womens conference and have really been praying about starting a family. I have been to lifeway and to barnes and noble, not asking but searching for a Christian book with some insights on making this decision. I will buy it if I don't win it, but thought I would give it a try and tell you again what a blessing you are. I desire to give other people a glimpse of my commitment to Christ and what He is to me, just haven't gotten to far along in the blog world yet!!

I would love to have this book! I have a 2 year old and I got pregnant with her 6 weeks after the wedding. We still question our timing on that and we are wanting a 2nd and trying but no baby yet...we are in an apt, husband wants to go to school , etc so we are wondering even now about God's timing. This would be a great read!!

As newlyweds we go through the "Lets Have a Baby" ebbs and flows and believe that we'll "know" when the time is right. But do we? Even if I don't win, I will definitely pick this book up, but I certainly hope I win!

I would love to win and read this book! My husband and I have been going back and forth on if this is the right time for us to start our family. I think it would be great for both of us to read, and I would gladly share when I am through. :)

This book would truly be a help to me and my husband. He is turning 30 this year and I will be 26 in June. I am very ready to start our family...but we have financial concerns. I would love to read up on what the Bible says about our situation.

Thanks so much!

I want to win this book! My husband and I have been married for 6 months, and although my hearts desire is to fill our home with children, he's still not sure if he wants children. More than anything, he's fearful he won't be a good father. Thankfully, he's open to God's will, and has recently starting praying that the Lord would give him the desire for children, and would show him how to be a Godly father. I can't wait to read this book!

My husband and I could really use this book. We're approaching our first anniversary, and he is five years older than me. We "joke" all the time about how it will be a decade before we consider having children, but we're both having a hard time really opening up and talking about what we want. We definitely could use a little inspiration!

Kelly, this is SO where my husband and I are right now! Married 5 years, him in optometry school, me working, wanting to be smart about the practical aspects of starting a family yet not misled by the world's concept of a timeline. I'd love to read this book!
