Cries from the Barren Womb
Infertility is an issue that affects so many, and it is easy to lose sight of living a life for Christ in the midst of it. Those dealing with it frequently feel lonely and lost. Author Julie Lortz’s Cries from the Barren Womb reminds readers they are created wonderfully and individually—that they have unique purposes, regardless of whether or not they have children. This is a story woven deep in the fabric of Lortz’s life. Like many women, she dreamed of being a mother and was shattered to learn that would never happen. Cries from the Barren Womb recalls her journey of heartbreak, anger, frustration, and finally acceptance. After years of deep sadness and purposelessness, Lortz dug into God’s Word to see what He had to say about barrenness. She began to journal her thoughts and realized there were so many in her exact position. Now she offers strength through her story and those of others. Questions at the end of the chapters guide readers to internalize and understand their importance in God’s eyes. Many women may feel there is no hope but only despair, as Lortz once did. In Cries from the Barren Womb, they can learn, as she has, that God has a unique purpose for everyone.
