Expectant Joy

Written by

Expectant Joy is a prayer resource for couples and families to journey through pregnancy together. The prayer is divided into trimesters and focuses on a different person of the Holy Trinity allowing the family to prepare their hearts and souls for the arrival of the newest little one on the way.

Pregnancy is a time of many ups and downs, joys and struggles, and Expectant Joy is a way to entrust each moment to God’s provident embrace. These beautifully chosen passages and prayers allow for a spiritual encounter that creates lasting memories from the moment the pregnancy test comes back positive until the family holds this precious child in their arms.
