31 Days of Scripture During Infertility {Introduction}

It’s October and that means it’s time for the Write 31 Days Challenge. Each year, a bunch of bloggers commit to writing a post a day for 31 days. Last year was the first year I participated and the result was my 31 Days of Prayer During Infertility series (and eBook).

This year I’ve decided to do a series called 31 Days of Scripture During Infertility. The point of the series is to get our hearts and minds saturated with Scripture that will encourage, challenge, and strengthen us during infertility. Each day will feature a meditation or devotion on a passage in the Bible, and I’ll encourage you to write out those portions of Scripture. By the end, you’ll have written out several large chunks of Scripture.

The series is designed to take only a few minutes each day, with options for studying a little more if you have time. You can use your own notebook or journal to write the Scripture passage, or you can download the printable journal pages that go along with each day.

Also, I encourage you to snap a picture of your journal or printable after you write out each day’s Scripture and share it on social media.  I think it would be a really powerful exercise to see other women writing out Scripture along with us.  I’ll be sharing my photos each day on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and Instagram.  Use hashtag #ScriptureDuringInfertility if you want to share yours, too!  (If you’re reading this after October 2015, when the challenge has ended, feel free to continue to share your posts using that hashtag.  I’d love to see your photos even then!).

Check the blog for updates each day, or you can come back to this page to find a list of all the posts as they’re published. I look forward to spending some time in the Word with you all!

  • Thank you for doing this series! I look forward to reading it!

  • What a lovely blend of this writing project and a very painful experience. I dealt with infertility for an extended period of time (6ish years) and it sapped strength I didn’t know I had and challenged every bit of faith I thought I’d found. I’m not in the same situation any longer, but I’d still love to follow along. Those years continue to be tender on my heart.

    • Thanks for much for the kind comment, Heidi. I’m glad you’ll be following along!

  • Tiffany {A Touch of Grace}

    What a wonderful idea! I can imagine this series will bring up some wonderful and painful things for you. But writing it all down will be so cathartic.

  • This is a beautiful encouragement to women experiencing infertility. I will pray this ministers to many hearts!
    Blessings and smiles,
    Lori

  • Thank you for choosing this topic and sharing your struggles (and God’s truth) so openly with others. I would have been so blessed to have had your blog while we were in our own season of infertility. It seems like such a long time ago, and we have come so far (I am now a mother to two rambunctious elementary aged girls) , but when I was in the midst of it…I was so alone. Blessings to you and prayers that God gives you strength to endure!

    • Thank you for the kind words, Sarah. It’s so encouraging to hear from someone who has come out the other side and is thriving. Praise God for your girls!

  • Encouraging and inspiring words as always lovely. Thank you so much for linking up to Share With Me. I appreciate the linky loyalty and always look forward to seeing you again at SWM. #sharewithme

    This is really encouraging. I know how hard it is as three doctors had concluded that I would never have a baby. But our God has the final word for everything. I am blessed with three children now. We just need to trust in Him who is with us in our good times and the hard times. I praise God for you. Stay blessed!

    Hi Lisa,
    I’ve been silently looking at your blog for several months now. My husband and I started TTC when we got married over a year ago. I have a history of cervical cancer and doctors have never been 100% sure if that will affect us or not. I’m a naturally impatient go getter so even though it’s a short amount of time it’s been tough. But, what I came to say was that your faithfulness throughout your struggle is inspiring. God has used your story in mighty ways to affect my life and call me and my husband to Himself.

    • Thank you so much for your kind words, Dee. I’m so sorry to hear about your struggles, but I’m glad the blog has been encouraging to you. I pray you are blessed with a child soon, and that no matter what, you’ll feel God’s presence and His peace. Hugs.

    I just found this blog post via Pinterest. My husband and I are struggling with infertility. We had planned to go ahead with IVF, but insurance is fighting us, and we are afraid that we are fighting a losing battle. Your post has inspired me to start this month long journey with a God that I haven’t come to know yet. Thank you so much for posting this, I hope that it will help with our situation and, in turn, help me to know God.

  • Love that you have this resource for those of us taking the long path to baby!
