About the Book



When you're expecting a baby, all the focus seems to be on the external trappings of pregnancy--baby showers, doctor appointments, setting up the nursery, learning about baby's development. But amid all that preparation, your own emotional and spiritual journey is also taking place. You're not just growing a baby; you're becoming a mother. In Expecting Wonder, Brittany L. Bergman dives into this identity transformation with wit and grace, offering a heart-level guidebook for women in the season of pregnancy. Bergman shares stories of wrestling with fear, learning to trust God's goodness, and making space physically and emotionally for both her baby and her changing identity. By sharing her own honest journey of fear, change, and hope, Bergman offers the reader a picture of the miracle that God is working not just in the reader's body, but also in her soul.

Review Quotes




"Expecting Wonder is the companion that every soon-to-be mom needs. With thoughtful stories and heartfelt wisdom, it is a trusted resource for navigating the wonder-filled experiences of pregnancy." --Mandy Arioto, President and CEO, MOPS International

"From the two-week wait to the moment of birth, Expecting Wonder captures the fear, thrill, anxiety, and sacredness of pregnancy, weaving poignant tales of surrender throughout. About more than a growing belly, this is a hope-filled story of a growing faith." --Ashlee Gadd, founder of Coffee + Crumbs and author of The Magic of Motherhood

"Finally--a pregnancy book I don't want to throw out the window! Brittany Bergman has produced that rare miracle--a book that understands what motherhood does to the soul, and not just the body. What a welcome relief!" --Lisa-Jo Baker, bestselling author of Never Unfriended; Surprised by Motherhood; and The Middle Matters; cohost of Out of the Ordinary

"In this revealing and tender book, Brittany Bergman gives us what we all crave (even more than simple carbohydrates) on the cusp of a significant life change: a friend who will come alongside us and remind us that we're not alone and that our souls have the capacity to grow right along with our bellies. As you walk through each trimester of this book, you will discover that motherhood might not always be wonderful, but it can, by some miracle, be full of wonder." --Stephanie Rische, blogger and author of I Was Blind (Dating), but Now I See

"Bergman infuses the memories of her pregnancy -- from the early and unrelenting anxieties to the inevitable stretching of body and soul as a new person comes into the world --with spiritual, emotional, and relational meaning, making room in their midst for us, too, to join her on a journey?of Expecting Wonder." --Catherine McNiel, author of Long Days of Small Things: Motherhood as a Spiritual Discipline and All Shall Be Well

"Brittany Bergman has written the story of pregnancy that new mothers long for. With honesty, grace, and assurance, she relives that nine-month experience in all of its scary, beautiful glory." --Laura Tremaine, writer & podcaster

"As a mom of five kids, I've read a book, or many, written for parents, but have never read a book like Expecting Wonder. Through honest, authentic personal essays, Bergman gently encourages each reader to embrace the way parenting shakes up our lives and somehow, wonderfully, puts us back together even stronger than before." --Meg Tietz, creator and host, Sorta Awesome; coauthor, As He Leads Us: From Fear to Freedom in Baby's First Year
