A Blessing On The Way: Counting Each Day While You’re Expecting is a pint sized book of encouraging scripture and facts about the development of a baby throughout ones pregnancy. As the titles states, this book is written in a format the counts down the days from week 1 to week 40. As one may not know if they are pregnant right away, they can still benefit and start reading from the beginning of this book up to their current point in pregnancy. When I received this book I had been several weeks into my pregnancy but I did go back and read from the beginning.
Each page has the day, a word of inspiration or encouragement, a Bible verse, and a tidbit about babies development. Do note however that not all of the pages have a bit about baby but most do. The readings are very short so I wouldn’t use this book as devotional. The scripture and words written can however be used as a jumping point if one so chooses to jot down in their own daily prayer journal or scripture study notebook. The verses can be applied throughout pregnancy and in parenting.
This would be a good gift for a pregnant mom early on in their pregnancy. Baby showers happen at so many different times so I feel this book is better given as a gift as soon as one finds out to benefit from the countdown format.
