The Good Book



31 biblical reflections on God's comfort and care in the sorrow of miscarriage.

Using Psalm 139, Abbey Wedgeworth walks alongside women suffering the heartbreak of miscarriage. Having experienced the sorrow of miscarriage herself, she acknowledges the isolation commonly felt and the impact that such an experience can have on faith.

These precious verses will show women that God can bring comfort, assurance, protection, and purpose in the very sorrow that they are experiencing.

Includes personal stories of pregnancy loss from others, including Courtney Reissig, Kristie Anyabwile, and Eric Schumacher encouraging sufferers that they are not alone. It is a very helpful book to give to women who are suffering in this way.

Editorial Reviews


When we lost our baby unexpectedly, silence filled my soul. By the grace of God, Abbey does the impossible in Held by putting words to our pain in miscarriage while offering the hope of the gospel. She guides the broken hearted woman into the endless grace of God. --Gretchen Saffles, Founder, Well-Watered Women

Abbey Wedgeworth wants her book to be a companion in a season of loss. That is what we need, and that is what she has written. As she gently works through the difficult loss of an unborn child, she introduces you to a compassionate God who knows how to walk with you as your ultimate Companion. If you are experiencing or have experienced any kind of loss, you will find comfort in this book. --Dr. Timothy Lane Founder, The Institute for Pastoral Care

It was no coincidence that Abbey was writing Held when we lost our second baby. The portions of it that she shared with me were a balm to my aching heart. This is a Word-saturated book, tenderly written by a woman who loves Jesus, trusts him, and wants to see many hurting moms do the same. I highly recommend it to you. --Kristen Wetherell Author, Fight Your Fears and Hope When It Hurts
