The Quickening Heart: A Journal for Expectant Mothers

Anne Christian Buchanan, Author, Debra K. Kingsporn, Author, Debra K. Klingsporn, Editor Upper Room Books $17.95 (160p) ISBN 978-0-8358-0776-0
Pregnancy can be a time of transition, growth and new beginnings for expectant mothers as well as for their developing embryos. Buchanan and Klingsporn have compiled a delightful journal to help women capture and reflect upon their experiences during those nine months of waiting. Organized around the ongoing progress of pregnancy, the book provides a treasury of quotes, both funny and wise, along with selected Scripture verses and brief prayers. In addition to comments from the authors, readers will find gems from Renita Weems, Dorothy Day, Henri Nouwen and many others. There is ample space throughout for the expectant mother's own reflections with a few special pages for recording the ""biggies."" The authors hope the journal will become ""a private haven,"" a place for quiet reflection, private thoughts and spiritual deepening. This journal is a charming and provocative addition to the literature available for expectant Christian mothers. (Apr.)
