How the Matriarchs Changed Their Fate
How You Can Too By Jessie Fischbein (196 Pages)Publisher: Devora Publishing, 2005
According to the Torah, three of the Matriarchs: Sarah, Rebecca, and Rachel were barren, yet they gave birth to the founders of the Jewish religion. The author reveals the Matriarchs' struggle to overcome the seemingly insurmountable obstacle of infertility, and their success through both prayer and deed. Using their experiences as a starting point, she discusses her own battle with infertility and how others might benefit from her experience.
To help others find their way, the author focuses on:
Divine Intervention - The key to understanding yourself and your place in God's plan. How to work on yourself and perhaps alter your "fate".
Prayer - Why it sometimes works and sometimes does not work, and how to remold its force within you.
Leah and Rachel - How their sibling rivalry impacted on their ability to have children, and why focusing your emotions is a hidden tool for change.
Hannah - How the prayers and actions of the mother of Samuel helped her conceive.
Plus: Important insights on the husband-wife relationship when infertility becomes an issue, and how to better understand the sensitivities of a woman who has trouble conceiving.
