As we learn to praise God through life’s trials, we can quickly learn how difficult it actually can be. What happens when our dreams of having a family come to a sudden halt when at a routine check-up we find out our expectant baby no longer has a heartbeat? Our hearts are instantly broken and our dreams come shattering down around us. What then? How do we continue to praise God through this painful and grief-filled trial? This was not in the plan for our happily ever after!
Made Only for Heaven shares the true journey of Wendy, a young bride who discovered she was expecting a precious baby only five months after the wedding bells rang. The moment they saw the positive pregnancy test, dreams of their coming baby filled their minds, only to be suddenly broken just a few short weeks later. That was only the beginning and as the years went by, they would also lose three more babies through second trimester miscarriages and the stillbirth of their baby boy. Through the pain, Wendy shares her victories and struggles of how the Lord taught her to continue to praise Him through it all. Even though her heart was breaking, she wanted to praise God in the midst of her storm.
I do not know a woman who wouldn’t profit from reading this book! Wendy has an openness about her strengths and weaknesses through these trials that is heart gripping. For those who have never experienced the devastation of losing a child, you will walk away from this book better equipped to understand and comfort those who have experienced this type of loss. ~Charity Teis Berkey, Pastors wife in Las Vegas, NV
There have been few books written on the topic of miscarriage, but even less written about loss through the middle of a pregnancy. Having experienced such a loss at 22 weeks of pregnancy, this book would have been a tremendous encouragement. Made Only For Heaven will be an excellent tool to minister to families who suffer from this type of loss. ~ Jennifer Baker, Pastors wife in French Lick, IN

Great book for husbands as well!
This book is an excellent book for anyone who has gone through a miscarriage or a stillbirth. This is also great for a husband who's wife has gone through it. At times you just don't know what your wife is feeling or thinking, this book will help you understand a little better what she is going through. There is hope, but that hope is only found in Jesus Christ!
