Donna's "Prayerfully Expecting"

Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle is prayerfully expecting the imminent publication of her new book, Prayerfully Expecting: A Nine-Month Novena for Mothers-to-be.

I recently had the privilege of a sneak peek at this book, and it is beautiful!

When I was pregnant with each of my daughters, I kept a pregnancy calendar/journal, but those were of a secular nature. To transform the records of development, first-times and precious memories into a lived and recorded novena is an inspiration. I cannot wait to buy copies of this book -- three of them, one for each of my daughters -- and tuck them away for that special someday when I'll present my girls with this prayerful companion for their first pregnancies.

You can read about the illustrations, beautifully rendered by Donna's daughter, Chaldea Emerson, here.

Wow, what a great idea for a book! That is going to be a hit--and an oft repeated baby shower gift!

Brilliant!
