Making and having babies-what it takes to get pregnant, stay pregnant, and deliver-has mystified women and men for the whole of human history. The birth gurus of ancient times told newlyweds that simultaneous orgasms were necessary for conception and that during pregnancy a woman should drink red wine but not too much and have sex but not too frequently. Over the last one hundred years, depending on the latest prevailing advice, women have taken morphine, practiced Lamaze, relied on ultrasound images, sampled fertility drugs, and shopped at sperm banks. In Get Me Out, the insatiably curious Randi Hutter Epstein journeys through history, fads, and fables, and to the fringe of science, where audacious researchers have gone to extreme measures to get healthy babies out of mothers. Here is an entertaining must-read-and an enlightening celebration of human life.

This is a personal testimony of how The Lord Jesus Christ delivered the author from a compulsive eating disorder. How He repaired the emotional damage caused from suffering abuse, shocks and traumas in childhood and also as an adultHaving to cope with unresolved issues suffered in childhood of trying to deal with the death of a parent, and being unable to go through the normal grieving procedure.‘The weighing scale was my enemy, and was in control of my happiness, if my weight was low I was happy, if it was high I was depressed.’ ‘Sometimes I felt as though I was inside a box, and could see out, but there was a barrier around me, like a wall, which I needed to break out from, but I couldn’t. I could only walk around inside my box, almost like a television set with me inside, and I could look out through the screen. The box protected me, but also stopped me from being real. I felt safe inside it, and although I wanted to get out, my nerves and anxiety sent me into panic, and I would retreat back inside for my own safety.’‘My mind was a battlefield of negative thoughts, which were mainly directed at myself, and God wanted me to think positively about my body and looks and to stop this self-destructive thinking, which led me to self-destructive behaviour’.
God saved me, my unborn child, and my seventy-five-year-old grandmother from the second floor of a burning house in 1969 in the town of Freeport, Illinois.It was in the winter, when I was awakened by the noise of running footsteps coming from downstairs. I opened my door to see what was happening, but the heat and smoke forced me to shut the door quickly. I called to my grandmother, whose room was across the hall from mine, but she yelled to me to get out of the house. I didn’t know it at the time but she had thrown her suitcase out of the window and jumped.There I was, trapped in my room, with no way out. I couldn’t open the only window in the room because it was stuck. Then I called on the name of the Lord and I asked him to save my baby. I touched the window and it came all the way up to the top. I knew it was the Lord because he heard me crying out to him. And I jumped out of that window that day on the word of the Lord,“When you call to me, I will answer. I will be with you when you are in trouble. I will save you and honor you” (Psalm 91:15).

Creation is not a single event in time but a process continual into infinity. The Garden of Eden is part of this process. And as part of this process, it is dispersed and deviated into every region of man’s world and does not exist any longer as a single entity.God’s garden on earth is deviated into every region in the world. It is not in one location. Now each garden has, within its own power of creation, accordingly met mankind’s needs of the region.In different regions are different plants, yet the same results affects on needs and cures. Hence the miracle of the Garden of Eden continues to exist wherever mankind chooses to live.Thus the garden will follow mankind wherever he chooses to live in the universe if it meets his perceived basic needs—air (oxygen), potable water, and food.
