Fearfully and Wonderfully Made



Sometimes God gives me ideas when I am in my bed. That’s when He gave me the idea for this book. I wanted to write a book that would teach children that a developing baby in the womb is not just a piece of tissue but a human—created and formed in God’s image. I wanted children to know that they were created special, even in their mother’s womb (see Psalm 139:13b). The names Dayspring and Harah (pronounced haw-raw´) are both from the Bible. Harah is a Hebrew word that means “to be or become pregnant, conceive.” Dayspring is used in the New Testament (Luke 1:76-79) to describe Jesus as a light to a dark world. It means “the dawn.” This story shows that even in the womb, babies are functional human beings and not simply a glob of tissue. To emphasize the fact that unborn babies are fully human from conception, I exaggerate certain aspects and actions of Dayspring. She talks and eats; she experiences feelings such as disgust, excitement, dizziness, and even smugness. Also, she is already developing her talent of gymnastics. Children who understand the value of life in a mother’s womb will grow into adults who appreciate the lives of their own children. This, dear readers, is what I hope to accomplish with this book. —Indya A Rennie
