Heather DeJesus Yates, speaker and author of All The Wild Pearls, saw a message repeating every month, "Heather, you can't create life." Negative pregnancy tests reconfirmed what she was told more times than she cared to count.
"If you feel like everyone else can create life, except you - you know what it feels like to be the barren woman."
In the ancient times, to be barren was to be cursed. Couples struggling with infertility today sometimes feel the same burden and pain as those in times past.
There is hope for the barren womb, this impossible is now possible, all thanks to the empty tomb!
Heather uses her characteristic way of drawing hope from God's smallest creations, sharing her personal journey with infertility grief, even giving her husband control of some of the pages, and introducing you to a barren plant that changed everything.
"In God's economy a barren plant can take over a yard, and a barren woman can be a mother...even a mother of thousands!"
God is the creator of all things, and can bring revolution from the barren whether plant or person. Whether we are facing a broken soul or a broken womb, God sees potential for generations seated at our farmhouse tables in our forever family.
A Mother of Thousands offers hope within a community of real womens' stories with infertility. This book is the empathetic friend you want and the hopeful path out of the broken dreams you need.
This is the book I was looking for years ago, but couldn't find.
So I wrote it.
This is for the revolutionary - for you, mama - who just may not see it yet.
