Reviews for Green Pastures of a Barren Land

“It is with great joy that I endorse this Great Book. My wife and I experienced a similar disappointment in our lives. I am confident that God can and will use this book to be an encouragement to a woman and her husband to be strong through adversity. This life story has a message of hope and strength … a message that Jesus must remain “the Main Thing.” Through Candise’s and Rusty’s lives, others will be blessed and strengthened to move forward in Jesus’s Name. Amen!!! Proverbs 17:17”


-RV Brown, author, speaker, founder of Outreach to America’s Youth


“The Christian community is needing this book! For years, we have allowed infertility and childlessness to be the “unspoken” heartache within the fellowships of our churches. This work not only creates an awareness of the prevalent trial, but it also offers to all readers ‘God’s way’ of dealing with any disappointment. Not just the couple struggling with infertility, but everyone is within the targeted readership of this work. A must-read for us all!”

-Janet Hunt, wife of Dr. Johnny Hunt, pastor of First Baptist Church, Woodstock, Georgia and former President of the Southern Baptist Convention


“Candise Farmer has done a slam dunk in describing the pain of infertility and the pursuit of years to correct this condition only for the verdict to end in “barrenness for life.” This book should be a resource in every Christian OB-GYN’s office for women who despair of ever conceiving and holding a child in their arms. It is a book that will touch the heart strings of anyone who has felt that the God of love has withheld from her such gifts of marriage, children, health, and on and on it goes. Candise’s hope in the Balm of Gilead who pulled her from the pit of despair is convincing. Get a box load to give to your friends. Speaking as the wife of an OB-GYN who has seen this kind of pain, you could not find a better resource to give hope for those who experienced the “unwanted gift” of the barren womb.”

-Leeba Curlin, wife of Dr. John Curlin, retired OB-GYN, both former hosts of American Family Radio


“The principles offered in Green Pastures of a Barren Land will profoundly influence those dealing with heartache. Hurtful circumstances will enter everyone’s life, and I am confident the Lord will use this message of hope and strength to bring healing to many couples. I am truly grateful for this powerful resource.”

-Dr. Ed Litton, pastor of First Baptist Church, North Mobile, Alabama and former President of the Southern Baptist Convention Pastors’ Conference

    Candise, To say that I'm amazed and in awe of your transparency is truly an understatement. Your book has touched me to the core. God has put me in a different journey than yours but I have definitly had my share of trials and difficulties and this book applies to so many aspects of my life. It really isnt just for the barren woman and I hope that anyone that has ever struggled with the purpose of God's will in their life will pick up this book. It is a must read and is especially relevant in todays society. It has also made me more aware of the loss, pain, lonliness, despair and hopelessness that being childless can bring. I pray God continues to make me more sensitive to this issue. You have opened my eyes and I forever have been changed. God bless you as you seek His will. Thank you for listening to His call on your life and being obedient. You have and will touch many women. You have unlocked the door to this secret pain and given women a platform to discuss and be comforted. I have known you since you were a teen and it's overwhelming to see God walk with you and grow you for His kingdom! I love you!
