The problem of infertility has reached epidemic levels in our society. It is projected that 40% of women currently 25 and younger will have difficulty conceiving a child or reaching a live birth. 

Amanda Hope Haley had married David, the man of her dreams, and earned a master’s degree from Harvard. She and David purchased their first home and settled down to start a family. All her hopes and dreams were coming true according to plan—until the family didn’t happen. After spending seven years begging God for a child, Amanda discovered that God gives only one hope: Jesus. Amanda having a baby wasn’t to be her happy ending. Finding wholeness by hoping only in God was her happy ending!

Using Amanda’s personal stories, and the stories of other women who have struggled to have children, Barren Among the Fruitful surrounds those women struggling with infertility or miscarriage with a sense of community while providing honest facts. It leads women from confusion to understanding. Each chapter is titled with a well-meaning, but sometimes thoughtless comments Amanda was offered during her seven-year struggle with infertility. 

Features include:

  • Personal stories from women who have struggled with infertility or miscarriage
  • An honest look at the problem of infertility
  • Questions for individual thought or group discussion

Review by Tomi
As a woman who endured years of infertility, this book resonated deeply with me. I understood the feelings Amanda felt as I have felt those same feelings during my struggle. Through God's grace, my husband and I have been blessed with a wonderful family and there is no greater joy than that of being parents. Well written and perfect for anyone you know who may be wondering "Why me Lord, why me?"

I really enjoyed reading this book and meditating on the scripture therein. I am thoroughly enjoying the books I've read in the InScribed Studies collection and glad to see more books are being added to the collection. (Posted on 10/7/2014)
