Today, I hope to provide an opportunity for the contributors to the book to speak from their hearts about this project and their ministries of words. I asked each contributor to send a paragraph about her mission in writing for grieving mothers, what chapter she contributed to Made for a Different Land, and what she hopes women will gain from her writing.

With Hebrews 11:16 coming to mind, I uttered the following words in the hospital room after the stillbirth of my first child: “She was made for a different land.” Soon, we announced online the death of our child instead of her birth, and the same words were written across the title of our blog post. As the years have gone by, this is the phrase I have written on balloons released in memory of my daughter. And most recently, “Made for a Different Land” is the title of a forthcoming collaborative book from Hope Mommies, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization sharing the hope of Christ with women who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss.
