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.

The 31 biblical reflections in this beautiful and comforting book remind grieving women that God sees them, knows them, loves them, and is actively caring for them. 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.

Ours is a similar resource giving biblical comfort and practical support to men processing miscarriage.

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.

Kristen Wetherell

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.

Hunter Beless

I will always keep a copy of Held on my bookshelf to share with mothers enduring the pain of miscarriage. I am abundantly grateful to have a resource that reassures grieving mothers of God’s presence, nearness, and purpose, even in the hardest days.

"Wedgeworth writes with great sensitivity and empathy"

Bethany Davidson, September 16th 2020

I appreciate the level of thought and care that went into every element of this book. The devotions are short and simple, remaining accessible no matter a reader’s exhaustion or cognitive range at the moment, and a woman can also read the devotions out of order if she wants to, based on whatever topic she most needs at a particular moment.... continue reading
