Minneapolis, MN – Sarah Philpott, author of Loved Baby: 31 Devotions Helping You Grieve and Cherish Your Child After Pregnancy Loss (BroadStreet Publishing), had the honor of receiving two awards at the 2018 SELAH Awards—one for best book in the Inspiration & Gift category and another for Book of the Year! Held annually at the Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers Conference each year, the SELAH Awards are presented to books within Christian publishing that are considered excellent in their genre.
Loved Baby is a book that offers much-needed support to women in the middle of psychological and physiological grief as a result of losing a child during pregnancy. In the book, Sarah Philpott gently walks alongside women as they experience the misguided shame, isolation, and crushing despair that accompany the turmoil of loss. With brave vulnerability, Sarah shares storiesthat offer Christ-filled hope and support to women navigating grief.
Kelly O’Dell Stanly, author of Praying Upside Down, says, “Our culture programs us to feel as though motherhood should be all sunshine and roses—breakfasts in bed made by beaming, freshly-bathed children. We learn to think that a woman cannot fulfill her God-given destiny unless she nurtures the lives God enabled her to bear. And yet, when one of those lives is lost, the world suddenly goes quiet, leaving these women alone and suffering. Through Sarah’s words in Loved Baby, you will realize that you’re not called to forget but to welcome God into your pain. You can remember and honor and grieve and be made whole again. With God, even this is possible. Step into these pages like you’re walking into God’s comforting embrace because that’s exactly what this book has to offer.”
