Bearing Hope Book

Take a deep breath right now. DEEPER.

Could you not benefit from taking about 1,000,000 of those?!

Here’s the deal: Waiting is HARD. Praying for the same thing over and over can feel so FUTILE.

But hear me: YOU. CAN. GET. THROUGH. THIS. It may not always be pretty, but you will get through this. And you’ll do it with some smiles and some fervor, if I have anything to do with it!

If you are a woman who desperately needs … joy … strength … friendship … renewed faith … ohmigoodness, I get it. I did too, especially when I was a crumpled mess on my floor for about three years longing \for a child.

This book is for you.


Going through infertility & baby loss can be like wandering through a desert. It’s terrifying. It’s hard to catch your breath. It’s lonely. You’re desperate for water … truth … hope … answers … a child.

“Is life perfect now? Heck to the no. Are my hands full? Is my heart full? Resoundingly yes and yes. But hear me sweet girl; my hope fulfilled didn’t come in the form of baby bundles. My hope came from and still comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. The Lord who never grows weak or weary, whose understanding is unsearchable (Isaiah 40:28). It was he who poured out just what I needed to get through those dark days, one at a time.”

-Liv Ryan, Bearing Hope

Whether or not you ever bear a child, m’darling, you can still bear hope!

Who could you send tangible hope to, tied up with a pretty bow? Yourself? Your bestie? Your mom? Your neighbor?

She will be ever so grateful.

Hugs and hope,

Do you want to take a sip from liv’s water bottle and walk by her for a couple miles before committing to the book?!
