Prayer and Community During Infertility {Free Facebook Group}

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen recent announcement about the FREE Facebook group I’m hosting this coming month (July).  We’ll be going through my book, 31 Days of Prayer During Infertility.  The group will last from July 31-August 31.    Update: The group has since ended, but I’ll be planning new ones soon.  See the link (in red) at the bottom of this post to sign up to be notified when new groups start.

When I first created the group, my goal was to have at least ten women join.  Well, I’m super-excited that over 150 have joined so far!  We haven’t even officially started yet, but the women you have joined are already sharing their stories and praying and encouraging each other.  There’s also a giveaway going on right now, and I have a few more planned!

I know that not everyone participates in social media, so I wanted to be sure to invite blog readers, too.  It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to conceive your first or your fifth.  If you’re struggling to conceive, you are welcome in the group! You don’t have to purchase the book to participate, but if you do want to get a copy you can buy it here.

The group is ladies-only, but I know that several participants will also be going through the study at home with their hubbies.  It is a closed Facebook group, which means that only other members of the group will see your posts.  (However, anyone who looks at your profile may be able to see that you are a member of the group, so keep that in mind).  

Update: The group has now ended, but I plan on hosting another one soon.  If you’d like to receive an email when the next group starts, sign up here.  

Let me know if you have any questions!!


My book is on Amazon! {Plus, 3 free bonuses for you}

COVER-eReader-LargeBack in June, I mentioned that my 31 Days of Prayer During Infertility eBook would be released soon on Amazon. Well, today is the big day! The book is now available in print on Amazon and as a Kindle book!

I wrote it nearly two years during a very difficult time. My husband and I had a wonderful relationship, but he was working 60+ hours a week teaching high school and coaching football. I had a very good job, but it was deeply unfulfilling. Most of my local friends were busy with their children, and most of my friends without children lived far away. We had just been through four failed IUIs and I knew that we’d be starting IVF in a few short months. I was sad and felt lonely and isolated.

Then I heard about the Write 31 Days blogging challenge. I had been blogging casually and inconsistently for a few months, and I liked the idea of writing more consistently and with more focus. So, with only one day’s notice, I committed to blogging every day during the month of October 2014 on the topic of prayer during infertility.  These blog posts eventually turned into the book.

As much as I’ve enjoyed receiving all the wonderful feedback I’ve received after writing the book, the real blessing came to me while I was writing it. I spent hours alone each evening, pouring over Scripture and praying that God would give me words for the next day’s post. Some days the words flowed more freely than others, but I never doubted that they would come eventually.

I learned so much while I wrote the book, and it gave me a new sense of hope and direction during one of the darkest periods of my infertility journey. I never imagined that the book might be able to do the same for other people in the future. But that’s how God works sometimes, right? He takes the lessons and blessings we receive during hard times and helps us pass them on to other people. I’m humbled and amazed every time I receive a message from someone telling me this book has helped them.

Because of the way Amazon works, a book moves up in the search results and recommendations when a lot of people buy it at once. So, if you’ve been wanting to buy my book, now is the time to do it. The more people who buy it this week on Amazon, the more people will see it in future search results and recommendations.

In order to say thanks for buying it now, I have some special bonuses that you can get, but only if you buy the book from Amazon by Sunday, August 14.  

Here’s what you get:

  • A PDF download of 31 Scripture memory cards that coincide with each day’s verse (a $1.99 value)
  • An entry into a raffle to receive a care package from me (approximately $25 value, U.S. residents only)

Here’s how you get the bonuses:

  • Purchase the print book for $7.99 or the Kindle book for $0.99 from Amazon between now and this Saturday, August 14.  They’re both on-sale at their lowest prices now, and the prices will go up after August 14.
  • Forward me your Amazon receipt OR the screenshot of the purchase confirmation screen. Email it to by Monday, August 15. Please put “31 Days Bonus” in the subject line.
  • You’ll receive an email from me with your bonuses!  If don’t receive the email within an hour or so, please check your Spam folder.  If you still haven’t received it, you can try emailing me again or messaging me on Facebook or Twitter.  Please be patient if you message me on Facebook or Twitter.  I don’t always see the notifications right away.

Now, I know that there have been a few people who already purchased the book from Amazon before this post was published. I want to thank you for your early support, so this offer applies to you, too. Simply follow the steps above and you’ll receive the same bonuses.

Again, I’m so humbled that anyone would even consider buying this book, and honestly, it’s still kind of unbelievable to me each time I receive a sales notification. God took what seemed like a random blog challenge during a lonely time in my life, and has used it to reach many people. I pray that readers like you are continue to be encouraged and lifted up!

Let me know if you have any questions or comments below!  

P.S. If you’ve already purchased and read the book, would you be willing to leave a review on Amazon?  Your review will also help the book be more visible in search results.  Not sure how to leave a review?  I’ve got instructions here!  Thank you!

Almost two years ago I released my first ebook, 31 Days of Prayer During Infertility. Since then, I’ve been humbled and blessed by all the positive feedback I’ve received. Many of you have emailed me to let me know that you printed the whole thing out in order to write on the prayer journal pages. And many others have emailed me asking if it’s available in printed, paperback format. Well, I’m happy to let you know that it is now available in print on Amazon, and a Kindle version will be released in August.  Having the book on Amazon means that I have the opportunity to share the message of hope in God during infertility to even more people.


Join My Launch Team

A lot of work goes into successfully launching a book on Amazon. Honestly, I can’t do it alone.  That’s where you come in!

One of the greatest things about blogging and writing online is that you realize how many of your readers are incredibly talented, creative, and smart. I have a lot of ideas on how to get the word out about the book, but I know that many of you probably have awesome ideas that I would never think of on my own.  So I’m creating a Launch Team!

The team will be personal and special.  We’ll be interacting on a regular basis, and together we’ll come up with innovative and fun ideas for spreading the word about the book.

What You’ll Receive

If you sign up to join the launch team (and get accepted), here’s what you’ll get:

  • A free copy of the newly-edited and re-designed PDF eBook
  • Exclusive access to a private Facebook group where we’ll interact and share ideas
  • The opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at the launch
  • A link to your blog (if you have one) and a special thank-you on my website

Plus, I’ll randomly choose 10 people from the Launch Team to receive a free copy of the print workbook! {U.S. residents only}

What I’ll Ask You To Do

If you’re accepted for the team, it means you agree to:

  • Read (or re-read) the book and leave an honest review on Amazon during launch week (August 8-12)
  • Spread the word any way you can during the launch week. I’ll provide you with some tips and ideas
  • Participate in the Facebook group by sharing your ideas and interacting with other members

This book means a lot to me, both personally and professionally. I’ve invested a lot of time and money it in and I plan on taking this launch seriously. It shouldn’t take too much time for you, but I ask that you apply only if you plan on taking it seriously, too.

Apply Now!

I need to keep the size of the group manageable, so I won’t be accepting more than 30 members. You don’t necessarily need a large blog or a lot of social followers to be picked. I’ll be choosing members based on your ideas and creativity. Applications will close on June 15.  

I’ll be emailing everyone who is accepted by June 22. If you don’t hear from me by then, you can assume that you aren’t being asked to join the team. But don’t worry; there will be several other opportunities to help with the launch! Just keep an eye out on the blog and on social media for updates.


If you don’t want to join the Launch Team, but would like to order a copy of the book, you can get a print version now or pre-order the Kindle edition.
