This weeks' study is so good. And truly the essence of why I practice and promote Christian Childbirth to all people. There are so many temptations and lies surrounding birth right now to sway us in the wrong direction. There are also so many people being used by satan to make you feel things like fear and worry. To make you feel anything other than joy and trust is a direct attack against the pregnancy and birth journey the Lord has for you.
I will post the questions she has in this week's chapter in hopes that you will reflect on them and write the answers to them on a notebook paper. This is how we grow and one of the way we hear from God. By meditation on good Bible Studies and learning the truth.
