Faith over Fear. Patience over Frustration. Pain with a Purpose.
In Miscarried Joy, Tanika transparently shares her deeply personal and disappointing experiences of losing her babies due to miscarriage. There were times when she felt God was the cause of her pain. However, her journey through the lives of Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel, Hannah, Elizabeth and Naomi, revealed quite the opposite – God had allowed her pain for a much greater purpose. Each of these women had something in common: they learned to surrender their will and trust God’s plan beyond the pain. They were pushed to a posture of prayer that led them from questioning God to have total confidence in Him. Tanika discovered that this season of waiting didn’t show up simply to challenge her, but to change her.
With biblical depth, heart-filled transparency and a voice of passion, you will:
- Understand God’s heart in the midst of incredible pain
- Discover the importance of trusting God’s plan over your own
- Arm yourself with the strength to let go of bitterness and comparison to appreciate the beauty of your story
- Learn and implement spiritual principles and strategies to walk boldly in faith
- Embrace God’s delay and birth contentment in your season of waiting

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
In her new book, Miscarried Joy: Moving Beyond Incredible Pain to Extraordinary Faith, Tanika Fitzgerald ministers to women experiencing the grief of pregnancy loss and stillbirth. Tanika herself experienced the grief and isolation of miscarriage in 2015. She opens her book with the candid account of her own experience of miscarriage. She reaches out to the grieved reader as a personal friend and mentor. For many women, the solace and comfort received from Tanika's book might be the only companionship during their own pregnancy loss journey. As Tanika points out, miscarriage and pregnancy loss is more common than many believe. But, because of the stigma surrounding pregnancy loss, many women must grieve alone. This book is a resource to read multiple times, and to have handy by the bedside for sleepless nights and times of grief. There are plenty of scripture verses as well as bible anecdotes that are used to help guide any grieving mother when facing the loss of her child no matter what stage in pregnancy the loss occurred. This is the perfect book for anyone experiencing pregnancy loss. And for those painful times when there are no other words of comfort- this makes a comforting resource. One of the best most poignant aspects of this book is that it is written from a point of view of incredible faith. Tanika wrote this book despite the fact that she currently does not have any living children. She writes from the point of view of patience and in a time of uncertainty which makes her words even more powerful and applicable. Not every mother has a happy ending or a baby here while on Earth. The fact that the author has written this powerful book while still patiently waiting on God -serves as a reminder that if this type of faith is possible for her, that maybe it is also possible for those who have not been able to have children either.
