This Journey to Motherhood is filled with so many ups and downs. Oftentimes, the women on this journey go through a range of emotions on a daily basis. They can go from happy, to sad, to angry – all in a matter of minutes. I, myself, have been there; in that place where my emotions were all over the place and I didn’t know whether I was coming or going. I’ve come to learn that God’s Word is the best source of encouragement and hope in those low, dark moments. So I have compiled 31 bible verses for the woman that’s struggling. I pray that they will encourage you, renew your hope, and revive your faith on this journey.
