Millions of women have felt the power of birth, and countless women long for it. But for too many, birth can seem like a purely clinical experience — something to get through as quickly as possible in order to get on with the joys of being a mother. In Made for This, author Mary Haseltine draws on Pope St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body to show that birth is an essential part of who God created women to be, body and soul. With real-life stories from many moms and practical tips — including preparing for birth, making informed choices, helping fathers embrace their role in the birth room, and encountering the work of labor — this book is an indispensable guide for navigating the physical and spiritual dimensions of pregnancy and birth. Expectant mothers will find the tools they need to approach birth as a gift, and to invite God into the experience. About the Author Mary Haseltine is a theology graduate and a certified birth doula and childbirth educator. With a passion for building a culture of life through the teachings of the Theology of the Body, she works to bring an awareness and practice of the teachings of the Church into the realm of childbirth, mothering, and pregnancy loss. She lives in Western New York with her husband and five sons. You can find more of her writing at www.betterthaneden.com.

Join Max Lucado on a journey through the book of Esther as he reminds us that God need not be loud to be strong, he need not cast a shadow to be present...and he is active even when he appears distant. This study was born in a hard season—a pandemic that locked down the world. Church doors closed. Students were stuck at home. Masks hid smiles. And as if this weren't enough, the ancient sin of racism and hatred seems to be trying to undo us. Many of us are left wondering if this season will ever pass. To all these things, God has a six-letter word of encouragement: E-S-T-H-E-R. The book that bears her name was written to be read in hard seasons. It was crafted for those who feel outnumbered by foes, outmaneuvered by fate, and outdone by fear.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Mordecai and Esther were to be married, but the king had issued the order for them to be taken to Susa. Mordecai suggested that they make the best of it by going into hiding as Jews. #2 The author went on a date with a girl who tricked him into jumping over a fence into a wheat field, only to realize it was a bed of thorns. The author learned a valuable lesson: things aren’t always what they seem. #3 The story of Xerxes and Vashti is a prime example of how not to treat your wife. When the king wanted to show off his wife, Vashti, she refused to comply. The king became furious and burned with anger. #4 The story of the insolent Xerxes and the romp in a winter-wheat field posit the same possibility: what if the glitz and glamour are only folly and foibles. What if the lure of lights is a hoax.
