Meet Lesli:
Lesli is no stranger to infertility. She has experienced all the range of emotions, the prodding of doctors, and the stinging disappointments. Yet through it all she's found significance offering hope and inspiration to the wounded heart of the barren soul. Through her own experience and those shared from others, an online ministry was created Dancing Upon Barren Land ~ Spiritual Nourishment for the Infertility Road.

She loves spending time with her husband, Larry, her man of faith and live-in comedian. She loves spending time with her family and friends, and traveling, especially road trips.

My Review:
This book hits very close to home for me, as I have struggled with infertility.  This book is not written to specifically tell Lesli's story.  I saw it more as a resource book, as it does have prayer topics, Bible verses and tips for family and friends.  I will definitely keep this book as a resource to look back on when I am struggling with our infertility and loss.  I am pregnant and although I am not currently struggling with infertility, because I have in the past (for years), I can relate to this book and I feel I still need the healing help that this book can help bring. 
I recommend this book to everyone who is struggling with infertility or who knows someone who is.  Infertility is such a crazy awful thing that affects so many women, yet those who haven't struggled with it either don't know how to handle it or don't realize how huge of an impact it has on one's life. 
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinions.
