We are so happy to announce the completion of the book
A Baby’s Viewpoint of Life and Death.
“God prepared a special little person and sent her into the world. Her life impacted every person she encountered. Now she is gone…but her influence lingers on…”
“…Early on the morning of July 20th, I started the labor process in order to give birth to my new baby, and I am still certain the new addition to our family will be a boy. We had previously decided he (the new baby) would be named, Isaac Judah, which means laughter-praise in the Hebrew translation. For each of the pregnancies of the previous six children I would ask the Lord to give me a scripture to meditate on for the duration of each labor, and that morning I asked the Lord for something I could use to comfort myself as I would undergo the labor and birth of my baby, either a song, Bible verse, or a prayer. When I opened my Bible, God led me to II Corinthians 12:9, as I pondered on this verse, I questioned the Lord asking Him, “I already know this verse, Lord,” (I had memorized this verse in 2001 quoting it to my mother-in-law, Carlota Lovato,before she underwent heart surgery) and the Lord said to me, “This is the one I want you to think about today.” II Corinthians 12:9 reads, “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” Upon reading this scripture, I felt the Lord piercing my heart about the infirmities, yet I thought of the heavy labor I would soon endure, and assumed that was the infirmity God was showing me–I never related the infirmities to my baby. (Just recently I looked up the meaning of infirmity and it was the description of Gracie’s life, how Powerful God is!)…”
We invite you to share the journey of Jake and Anita Lovato and their little baby Grace (Gracie) as they experience A Baby’s Viewpoint of Life and Death.
