After graduating with a masters degree in biblical studies, Catherine Claire Larson spent 7 years writing with Chuck Colson for Breakpoint Radio, Christianity Today, and Newsweek Online. Today, she writes amidst the clatter and curiosity of six young children. She is also the author of "Waiting in Wonder: Growing in faith while you’re expecting.”

On this episode we discuss her new book called "Watching in Wonder: Growing in faith during your baby's first year" – a weekly devotional journal that will inspire you to record stories and prayers for your newborn as you create a memory book that you (and they) will treasure for years to come.

"He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young." -Isaiah 40:11 NIV

"Now I say it again — this Christ is more of an artist than the artists — he works in living spirit and flesh, he makes men instead of statues" - Vincent Van Gogh.

"God invites us to be a part of shaping a living soul of inestimable worth. Our houses are going to fall apart, but these souls are going to last forever."
