Word Alive Press, in collaboration with Women’s Journey of Faith, are thrilled to announce the winning manuscripts for our 2019 Women’s Journey of Faith Contest!
Elizabeth Mannegren shares her personal story of pregnancy loss, as well as the stories of other women, and how in Christ she found the freedom to fully grieve.
“This book has been a part of my heart for several years now and so it is such an incredible honour to have been chosen as this year’s Women’s Journey of Faith contest winner. I pray that as we dig deep into this messy and uncomfortable subject of pregnancy loss, we will find ourselves embraced by the God who heals, redeems, and restores even our most broken of days.”
— Elizabeth Mannegren, Winner for Embrace: Clinging to Christ Through the Pain of Pregnancy Loss
