Now closed GIVEAWAY: "Creating With God: The Holy Confusing Blessedness of Pregnancy"

Winner has been notified. Thanks!

Creating with God by Sarah Jobe is a boldly truthful, sometimes funny, and deeply spiritual account of where babies come from and where babies take us. Jobe reads the Bible through the lens of her back-to-back pregnancies and finds that God shows up in pregnancy when we least expect it. Weaving together biblical reflections, her own story, and the stories of the moms around her, Jobe reveals the ways in which pregnancy is at the heart of God's work in the world. She invites her reads to see the image of Jesus in pregnant women, feel God abiding in the work of pregnancy, and to consider the ways that pregnancy can train us in the very practices we need to live a life of faith.


You could win a copy of Creating with God.

Open to Canadian and USA address only. 

Just leave a comment on this post telling me your favourite pregnancy book along with an email address (or way to contact you) if you win.

That's it! If you want to Tweet it or Facebook the link or otherwise share it for this giveaway, that's great - just leave another comment telling me that you did so and you'll get another entry.

Contest closes December 1 at midnight. I'll draw a winner using Random.org.

Good luck!


  1. Looks like it could be a good one! My fave pregnancy book is Ina May's Guide to Childbirth, which is AMAZING. Winning this would be great timing as I enter my 2nd trimester :)

  2. I don't have a favorite pregnancy book yet, as I had little time to read one! If I win it, this could be the one!

  3. I actually liked what To expect when you're expecting. Not everyone does but I did!

  4. I enjoyed The Pregnancy Journal and the Mayo Clinic's Guide to Pregnancy with my first. I would love to win this for a friend (no, really!) who is struggling through her first trimester right now.

  5. Wow, this looks like a beautiful, inspiring book. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Interesting!

    My favourite pregnancy book would have to be Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. Love the inspiring stories in it.

  7. Oh! I have a dear friend who is trying to get pregnant, and when they do (!), this would be such a blessing to pass on to her!
    My favorite pregnancy book is the Lamaze book: Giving Birth With Confidence, because really, it does give you so much confidence.

  8. um, i would swear by operating instructions by anne lamott. i needed that humor and honesty and rawness when i was a sick and miserable preggo lady.

  9. The advice that comes most often to mind is from How Not to Be a Perfect Mother.
