Recommends it for: Women who are hurting
Recommended to Sarah by: Rachelle Cobb
Age Appropriate For: 16 and up for discussions about infertility
Best for Ages: 18 and up

Read on Kindle Unlimited.

I’ve wanted to read this ever since my friend Rachelle recommended it. It sounded so powerful. However, when I added to my shelf in 2013, I didn’t see what a book about a woman who struggled with infertility really had to do with me. While I was wrong, God reminded me of this book at just the right time.

Metzler’s book isn’t so much about her infertility, as it is about her struggle

This is so beautiful.

What I Loved

Okay, first of all, let's cover-gush, shall we? Isn't that the most gorgeous shade of green?! =) When I first saw that cover, I knew I wanted to read this book ~ and not just because it was written by friend and fellow Kindred Grace team member Natasha Metzler. But I held back for a bit, because, well, because I knew God would meet me within those pages, and I wasn't sure I wanted to make my way through a book about pain...

I'm infinitely glad God brought me to th

Natasha’s story is one of infertility. Maybe yours is of a broken relationship. Or of a sick child. I don’t know your story, but He does. And as Natasha writes: “In the middle of pain the most healing thing to hear is that God knows.”

Pain Redeemed: when our deepest sorrows meet God is the heartbreakingly real story of Natasha’s struggle with infertility and depression. She shares very honest pages from her journal. She’s very open about her jealousy, her battles, her anger. But all in a way that

“I could be refined or I could grow self-consumed and bitter…” Natasha reveals in her debut e-book, “A Pain Redeemed.” She shares how her struggle with infertility kept her from hearing the voice of God in her life. “Children are good and beautiful gifts, but so often I elevate them over God in my life. I long for a baby more than I hunger and thirst for Jesus.”

Though she still longs for a baby of her own, that desire has been eclipsed by a longing for her Savior. Natasha invites her readers alo

I don't usually read many books nowadays, but this week I've picked up a good one. I keep up with Natasha Metzler at her blog,
Her writing blesses me a lot, so I was thrilled when I discovered that she's just finished an e-book, Pain Redeemed. I read it all in one sitting, it was just that beautiful.

“Nothing is quite as painful as watching dreams die.”

Pain Redeemed is a grievously beautiful call of hope. Natasha Metzler reaches deep into her heart and plucks out her dee

If you have an ongoing struggle in your life, this book seeks to help you to come to terms with God's plan... not only to relieve your pain, but to bring about good for your life.
Through the author's struggle with infertility, she weaves a transparent story of hope and life, and gives encouragement to us to also seek the Author of our lives.
The story is engaging, the language is comfortable to read. The message is eternal.

Although the book is about infertility the message of how God meets us in our pain is universal. No easy answers or cliches here.

One of the most beautiful books on pain and heartache and how God uses even our greatest disappointments for something good. I cried through it and read it in one sitting.

I don't remember how I came across this title; it has been sitting on my to-read shelf for awhile. I eventually took time to purchase and read it and I am glad I did. I admire Metzler in that she was gracious to write down her personal experiences and journey of sorrow and share them with the world. I am sure her words have helped and inspired numerous people. One does not have to had suffered through infertility to appreciate this book. I have not experienced that, but I have had other trials a ...more

For those who have struggled with infertility or miscarriage, this book is a healing balm. It put to words things so deep down in my soul I didn't even know how to express them. I highly recommend this book. ...more

Pain redeemed uses the author's own experience in infertility to tell us and show us how God can take anyone's pain and heartache and use it for His glory. How He is right there beside us in our sorrows, no matter what those sorrows are.

It's inspiring and heartwarming, one of those books you want to read again every year.
A book to give friends who are going through a hard time, and you know they will be gently encouraged and inspired

“I have to learn to love from this spot, today. I have to learn to trust, even when His will seems frightening or untrustworthy. I have to follow Him, even when it feels like I am walking into emptiness. It is right here, right today, that I must decide where my faith is. If serving God does not work from right here, in the middle of my pain and mourning, it won't work from anywhere.” 3 likes
