Dancing Upon Barren Land Book Review

Westfall - Dancing on Barren Land - cover

Dancing Upon Barren Land by Lesli Westfall is a book that talks about infertility and is written from the heart.
When experiencing infertility, the unexpected happens. Your feelings about yourself and your relationship with other and your belief in God are confused and complicated. Dancing Upon Barren Land-Prayer, Scripture Reflections, and Hope for Infertility is a helpful companion for those dark lonely days. 

This book is not a story but pure encouragement for the difficult days of infertility. It's full of verses, honest advice, understanding, and infertility "etiquette". It talks about how hurtful other people can be without them realizing it, which is something I had never thought much about from my standpoint.

Take Note: I received this book on accident, completely my fault because I knew this book was not something that I could personally relate with. I do not struggle with infertility but all the same, I wanted to review the book to let others know about it. Lesli has great things to say and I learned a lot about how I can act/say things differently in order to not be as hurtful for women who are struggling.

"I received this book for free from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review".
