A Walk in the Valley: Christian encouragement for your journey through infertility by Julie Arduini, Heidi Glick, Elizabeth Maddrey, Kym McNabney, Paula Mowery, and Donna Winters Edited by Lynellen D. S. Perry 

Everyone's path in infertility is different. But we also have so much in common: the hurt, anger, frustration, pain, sorrow, hope and joy that we have experienced along the way. This Christian devotional shares the experiences of six women. Some went on to conceive, others have adopted, and others remain childless. The workbook starts with how each woman discovered her infertility, then explores the diagnostic testing pursued, how they processed the official diagnosis, what decisions had to be explored regarding treatment, their experiences during infertility treatment (including pregnancy, miscarriage, and childbirth), and finishes with their experiences in remaining childless, adoption, foster care, child sponsorship, and the emotional healing regardless of the outcome of their infertility journey. We pray you are encouraged by the Scriptures, journaling questions, and the story of how we found peace in the loving arms of Father God.

Don't Tell Her to Relax by Zahie El Kouri

Despite the fact that so many women struggle to have a child, most of them feel alone, in part because those closest to them don’t know what to say or how to say it.

Don’t Tell Her to Relax sets out in 22 short chapters answers to basic questions (like "what is infertility, exactly" and "What's the difference between an IUI and IVF"), practical tips for when and how to raise certain issues like adoption or surrogacy, and specific advice on how best to support your loved one at emotionally difficult times.

Read this book if you know or suspect a loved one is struggling with infertility. And if you’re the one facing infertility, give this book to friends and family, ideally before they start telling you to relax, adopt, or take their children! It will help both parties have better conversations, and ultimately promote better relationships all the way around. For more information, and to purchase the book, visit


Expecting by Ann Hamilton - a funny and fertile exploration of modern motherhood and parenting.

Emmy Award nominated film/TV writer Ann Hamilton (Grey's Anatomy, Stephen King's Dead Zone, Thirtysomething, Party of Five and One Tree Hill) has repeatedly captured the drama of family life in all its forms—the frank, funny and forthright moments that define our lives. Her debut novel, Expecting, continues that witty and absorbing voice while exploring infertility, which affects over 7 million women and men in the U.S.

Based on Hamilton’s own struggles with infertility, Expecting follows a young couple - Laurie and Alan - whose wish for a baby finally comes true via artificial insemination only to learn that Laurie was accidentally impregnated by sperm from a donor other than her husband. Who is donor 269 and what are Laurie and Allan going to do about him?

This thought-provoking and inspiring story of three people bound together by a fateful mistake explores the connection between fertility and identity, offers firsthand advice on the emotional hurdles and challenges couples face when struggling to conceive, and provides candid insight into the meaning of marriage, motherhood and parenthood.
