This was a frightening prospect, especially following all the messages of judgement and condemnation Isaiah had already brought to the nations.

She is eating well, taking care of herself, and making the necessary preparations for a new life. In order to grow tall, a tree needs good soil, water, and sunshine.

Over the past decade my research has focused on the meaning of childbirth. What wonderful experiences have been mine.
