Joy In Suffering

A memoir of one couple's pregnancy losses and how they found happiness

High school sweethearts, Bobby and Rosemary Pope, were young and newly married when they found out they were going to be parents. What they did not know is they would experience multiple tragic pregnancy losses. After the sudden shock of their first child, a stillborn son, they were anxiously expecting again. Around twenty-weeks pregnant, they were faced with devastating news. Their precious baby girl had horrifying conditions that made her “incompatible with life.” Due to this diagnosis, they were faced with the struggling decision to terminate the pregnancy. Rosemary and her husband decided to continue carrying their baby in hopes for a miraculous healing.

Though things did not work out as they hoped, they had already pledged to God in trusting Him no matter the outcome. They chose to live in joy and know that God had a plan to fulfill the desires of their hearts. Read along to witness their roller-coaster ride to parenthood and how they relied on God to get them through.

Bobby and Rosemary found Joy In Suffering. It is through Rosemary’s raw, fervent, accounts of these events that you can too- The Joy of the Lord is our strength!

What People Are Saying

I’ve had the privilege of reading this book before it’s release and LET ME TELL YOU... the emotions are raw and real here. I ugly cried, laughed and felt all the warm and fuzzies while reading it. The story is incredible and heart-wrenchingly beautiful. I would not only recommend this book to anyone who has suffered perinatal loss, but anyone in general, really. It’s for those who’ve lost something real in their soul and can’t quite find how to get it back or cope with it never being quite the same. It’s for those who’ve felt they’ve lost everything, those who have experienced real anger and disappointment with God in the “WHY ME?!” times of life. It’s for those who don’t quite believe in a God that can truly wrap you in His love and hold you (even when you might not think you need Him) during the most heartbreaking times in your life. This book by a talented, up and coming author walks you through one young couple’s very real journey that has something to offer all of us. So order your copy and get ready for an amazing read!
I had the honor of reading this book early. What a journey Rosemary and her family have been on! This book is real, raw, and vulnerable. The author courageously walks you through her loves, her fears, and her losses. You will laugh and cry and nod your head in agreement as you read these pages. I love to read about real people who have gone through real issues and are still standing. Not only are the Popes still standing, they are thriving. Joy in Suffering will help so many hearts that are breaking from their own loss in pregnancy or infant loss. ❤️
I really loved this book! Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. At first I was hesitant to start it because of my own pregnancy losses, but Rosemary Pope did such a beautiful job sharing about her journey that it didn’t present as many triggers as I anticipated. It actually helped me think through my own losses in a healthy way, and reading her words were so encouraging to me. Whether you have experienced this kind of loss or not, I would highly recommend this book! It offers a fresh perspective for anyone who is desperate for joy in their lives even in the midst of suffering. The world is such a broken place, so we know we will suffer in this life. Rosemary does a beautiful job at pointing her readers to the source her joy.
