In UNBOUND, JAMIE SUMNER helps women who are struggling with the
pressures of motherhood find comfort, hope and companionship by
detailing her own difficult journey and highlighting women of the
Bible who triumphed in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
Women, especially Christian women, do not talk enough about the
reality of motherhood: the enormous struggles it takes to get
there, the loneliness of it, the unspoken or unmet expectations. We
are often too afraid, ashamed, or unwilling to share our stories of
disillusionment or pain. We quietly absorb the posts of sonograms
and happily messy houses on Facebook as we inwardly wonder what's
the matter with us. We listen to friends coo about their child's
latest success as we watch our own terrorize their sibling or
scream for an hour. We struggle to raise kids with special needs,
physical disabilities, and social challenges, caught by surprise
that this is what motherhood looks like. With honesty and
vulnerability, JAMIE SUMNER walks readers through each chapter of
her own journey to motherhood through infertility and special needs
parenting and pairs it with that of a woman in the Bible so that
readers can find comfort, hope, companionship and honesty rooted in
biblical truths. The book is broken into four parts: The Wanting,
The Waiting, The Getting and The Appreciating. UNBOUND will share
the heartbreak of infertility and offer encouragement from someone
who has had to wait for the fulfillment of motherhood; detail the
specifics of infertility treatments, miscarriage, and raising
special needs children through a Christian lens; honestly discuss
the expectations versus the reality of being a mother; and
highlight specific biblical women in each chapter who did not fit
the expectations of their times through verses, scriptural
anecdotes and guiding questions. UNBOUND shows you through
Scripture how to be thankful for each step wherever it leads.
Happiness is found as we release into His hands our own well-laid
plans for His better, and more beautiful one, no matter how
different it may look from what we first imagined.
