Rejoice Thou Barren
God's Help In Dealing With Infertility

Rejoice Thou Barren, dealing with infertility Rejoice Thou Barren tells our personal story of dealing with infertility and how God has taught us to rely on Him for strength and grace.

This book provides a challenge to women who have been blessed with children as well as comfort and encouragement to those who have not.

Coping with infertility is a heartache that never really goes away until you are blessed with a child. If you've never personally experienced the sorrow of infertility, you can't truly understand the pain that accompanies this challenge.

"...There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough:
The grave; and the barren womb..."
Proverbs 30:15-16

Before I was married, I never dreamed that I would have any trouble at all conceiving a child. In fact, I'd dreamed and planned of having at least a dozen!

Even as a child, I thought of myself as a "wife and mother" type of person. To me it was the highest calling to create a warm and wonderful home for my would-be husband and children, and to bring my children up to love and honor the Lord. I couldn't wait!

Little did I anticipate the surprise that God had in store for me and the lessons He intended to teach me through the sorrows of dealing with infertility.

After 14 years of marriage and dealing with infertility, my husband encouraged me to write Rejoice Thou Barren and share our growth of faith with others who were going through the same struggle.

Every mother and every woman who wants to be a mother should read this book. Every couple who has struggled with not being able to have children should read and reread its pages.

Angie Berg has so vividly opened up her heart in this book. I have known the Bergs for many years and I know that Don and Angie are very much in love in spite of their difficulties. I have seen this dilemma of not being able to have children blow marriages all to pieces. In other marriages it has caused a very strained relation, though they stayed together.

I am thankful for Angie’s honesty. Though she has committed her barrenness to the Lord, she still longs for a baby. The Scripture says in Proverbs 30:16, the barren womb never says “enough.”

God bless you, Don and Angie, for surrendering to His will.

Have you ever thought about this?

What is it like to be a barren woman? What is it like to long to be a mother with children of your own and yet be unable to have your longing fulfilled? To wonder how it feels to have your newborn miracle nursing at your breast and experience that special bond that only a mother can know?

How does a woman endure the knowledge that she may never have a little girl with her own pug nose and unmanageable hair or a little boy who smiles and walks just like his daddy? Who will she teach to sit like a lady? Who will she train to hold open the doors? Whose dirty hands will leave prints on her walls? Whose smiles and giggles will brighten her days and make the daily tasks seem less bothersome to perform? Who will she tuck into bed in the evening with kisses and hugs and goodnight prayers?

Does it hurt when her friends are all mothers with little ones? Is it hard to sit in a group of ladies who are all telling stories about the antics of their own special treasures and know you are the only one with nothing to share?

Does she feel of less value as a woman because she has not been able to give her husband children to follow in his footsteps and carry on the family name?

I can't explain how other women have survived the heartache that comes with dealing with infertility, but by opening my heart in the pages of this book, I hope to encourage others who have felt this same emptiness. Perhaps, too, I can inspire those who have been gifted with children to come to a greater appreciation of God's wonderful blessing in your little treasures.

I hope reading our story, Rejoice Thou Barren, will be a help and encouragement to you or someone you love who is coping with infertility.

Dear Angie,
Thank you so much for your books. I read Rejoice Thou Barren last week and have now started Daughters of Sarah. It was such a good book.

You helped me remember the gifts I have in my children, hopefully giving me more patience with them when they are doing everything but what they are supposed to be doing! I do feel terrible when I am short with them, they are only children and need my love and praise a lot more than my lecturing.

I think I will try to read this book every couple of months until I can remember that without the reminder.

I am thankful for the way you have taken this sorrow in your life to help others.

I just read your book, Rejoice Thou Barren, last night. I just want to thank you for the encouragement the words you wrote as well as all the Scripture passages you included were a huge help to me last night.

I don't know if the Lord will give my husband and me children one day, but I do know that whatever He chooses is best. God bless you and thank you again for being so open and honest and willing to share your heart.

Love in Christ,
Rachel Smith, Illinois

Until The Shout

I recently pulled Rejoice Thou Barren off my shelf and read its pages, tearfully, and thanked the Lord for your willingness to share so openly your heart.

We have been told that conceiving "the usual way" would not be possible for us, and alternative methods are (extremely) costly. However, I do still believe in miracles :) and pray that God will do His will for us, but your book has comforted me when I have felt despair.

I felt like I needed an update, and hoped that maybe by chance, you and/or your husband had a website. Was I ever thrilled to find this! :) I just want you to know that I appreciate you and your testimony, as well as your wonderful books.

Thank you so much, and know that I am praying for you and husband, and your work in Australia. You have been a blessing to me.
