There is nothing like the pain of feeling invisible to those around you. It especially hurts when you are serving, giving, and loving, and no one seems to notice or even care.
In creating The Invisible Woman, Nicole Johnson shows how much she understands the difficulty of living with great responsibility without receiving any recognition. Nicole puts us inside the mind and heart of Charlotte Fisher.
And as we walk through Charlotte's story of feeling invisible, we experience the comedy and loneliness of her life. The invisibility that at first feels inflicted ultimately brings her real significance and meaning.
Drawing her strength from the invisible builders of the great cathedrals, Charlotte realizes she is not invisible to God, and this simple truth changes everything for her. Faith is rekindled in her heart as she seeks to love her family in ways that only invisibility makes possible.

TrudiBath, NYAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Little BookJune 24, 2011TrudiBath, NYAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I received this today and read it over my lunch hour. I'm not a mom, but sometimes we all feel invisible! In the business world, we're "expected" to make sure that never happens. My feelings were recently overlooked in a decision made by a coworker, and this book arrived at just the right time to guide me through those feelings to what God wants, rather than what I want. Loved her little notes..."You may feel invisible in the world but you are not invisible to God" especially. I think I need to put a sparrow on my desk to remind me of the message of this book. I'd like to give a copy to all my friends!
Karen5 Stars Out Of 5February 11, 2010KarenI'm not sure why I picked this book up, because it's for mother's, and I'm not a "Mom" but no doubt it was the Spirit... Although the first chapter had me wondering where it story was going, the rest of the book tied up the package, nicely. I began passing it around our Wed. evening ladies class, and it has been a blessing...
Beth Hutson5 Stars Out Of 5December 9, 2009Beth HutsonThis book has changed me!! I now recognize that the once considered mundane mom work is truly the grandest blessings in my life. I have purchased 26 copies and have given it my close girlfriends and multiple other women that crossed my path, who expressed disappointment with their "Invisibility". The affordability of this book has allowed me to share it with so many, but honestly the life lesson that it taught me is invaluable.
Kimberly Baldwin5 Stars Out Of 5November 20, 2009Kimberly BaldwinAwesome! This is such a great book for all moms. God sees what we do, even when we feel that our husband and kids don't. What an encouraging and uplifting little book. I give this one to as many moms as I can.
