Publisher's Description

After his wife Amber had given birth to three boys in three years, Seth Haines saw that she needed encouragement in the day-to-day drama and details of motherhood. Secretly collecting nearly six hundred wise, honest, and sometimes hilarious letters from other mothers across the world, Seth compiled these "mother letters" as a gift for her. Amber and Seth have chosen the best of those letters--including letters from some of the most influential writers and bloggers online today--to include in a beautiful book perfect for the mother in your life.

Each mother-to-mother letter offers encouragement, advice, and vulnerable honesty about the struggles and joys of motherhood. These letters show that no matter how many times mothers feel like they've failed, they are still doing their greatest work. So for the mom who thinks she's the only one out there who just can't find time for a shower, Mother Letters shows her that she's part of a grand and diverse group of strong women who are saying to her, "Me too. But we can do this."

    The Mother Letters by Amber and Seth Haines is a must read for moms out there. I am not even a mom and they encouraged me. The idea for this book started out as a gift that Seth gave his wife Amber one year for Christmas. He contacted several women who were her mentors, and ladies whose blogs encouraged her and asked them to write letters to her uplifting and giving her advice on motherhood. They agreed, and many of those letters is what formed this book. Each one of these letters offers an inspiring word of faith, a breath of fresh air, a respite, and a laugh for the mom who needs a break. If you are friends with a new mom this would make a great gift for her. I look forward to reading more from this couple!

    I was given this book by Netgalley in exchange for a review.

    Looking back at human history all around the world, we see that wise people have always understood the power of a spoken blessing. When goodness is called out and a good name is bestowed, that is a powerful part of growth and transformation. Today, we need these moments of invocation more than ever. When life is hard, we need to hear what God made us to be. When all we can see is trouble, we need to hear about the hidden treasures.

    This book, "The Mother Letters" is a sweet ray of sunlight, a spring breeze, a friend's hand warm on your skin. Amber Haines, author of the beautiful book "Wild in the Hollow," and her husband Seth, author of the honest and hope-filled "Coming Clean," have curated this selection of Mother Letters.

    The Mother Letters are for every woman who has ever mothered any child. If you have borne the weight and glory of that title, whether there was DNA involved or not, whether "Mom" was ever spoken aloud before or not, then you are a Mother.

    Some of the contributors have names you may know from their books or blogs, and others you'll meet here for the first time. Yes, they're plainspoken about motherhood's messiness. You will read about temper tantrums and multiplying laundry piles. Yes, they're truthful about motherhood's pain. You'll hear their hearts as they discuss watching a child grow and reach for independence. Yes, they write poetically about motherhood's delights, from holding the newborn child to seeing your grown child living well.

    Despite all these familiar themes, though, this isn't your ordinary mother-book. The authors aren't selling you on any particular parenting method. They aren't determining your worth by the productivity of your womb. They aren't defining you in terms of your offspring's success. Instead, they're calling out to you as a God-designed individual. They won't encourage you to do or be more for you children's sake- no, they'll call for you to be alive in Christ's name. They'll declare you a Mother-soul, which is strong and wide and generous.

    I thank Revell Publishing for my review copy, provided in exchange for an honest opinion.

    Several years ago Seth watched his wife as she fell exhausted in to bed each night after a day of taking care of three boys under the age of 3. He knew she needed some encouragement. And that is how this book came to be. Seth encouraged friends and family to write a letter to Amber offering advice and encouragement. The book has since been expanded to include letters from mothers all over the country. It begins with a letter from Seth explaining how the book came to be. There is then an introduction from Amber. The main part of the book is the letters from mothers to mothers, offering encouragement and hope.

    The last letter is written by Amber and is, by far, my favorite. This book would be a perfect gift to give a new mother or one that is in the depths of toddlerhood with no end in sight. The letters are short, so can be read in those brief moments of quiet that occur so infrequently when we have small children. The book is small, tastefully designed, and filled with hope. I loved the puffy style cover and glossy pictures. The varied fonts, pictures, and parchment paper background all lend to a rich experience that mothers will cherish. I would definitely recommend this book as a perfect gift for mother's day.



    I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.

    This sweet book is a collection of letters to mothers from mothers. Some are humorous; some are heartbreaking. Some tell why the timeless and seemingly cliche advice mothers receive is of such value that it has been repeated through the ages thought unappreciated until the season is past. Some tell true stories of grace, of survival, of endurance, of laughter, love, and fun. Some will make you cry.

    These letters were collected by Seth Haines for his wife, Amber, during a trying time. Together they decided that the letters need to be shared; their publisher agreed. Mothers in all stages will find inspiration and truth. Mothers to be or of littles will find wisdom to apply as they embrace this blessed life role.

    If you're looking for something extra to tuck in with a baby shower gift, this book is ideal. I thank Revell for sending me a complimentary copy in exchange for this honest review.

    Though I'm not a mother yet, I voraciously study any information I can get about being the best mother possible. For years, I've had a drive to make sure I do everything I can to be the best mom I can be when I have kids. That's why, when the Revell Reads blogger reviewer program offered this book for unbiased review, I gladly signed up.

    The Mother Letters is a collection of letters from moms to other moms and, even as someone who's not yet a mother, I can clearly see the encouragement value these words have. Here, mothers have written to each other on every topic from believing you're good enough, and the struggle of raising children with special needs, to the depths of heartbreak over the loss of a child.

    Many of the words in these letters echo the words I've heard my mom friends say; half-whispered confessions of pure exhaustion, tearful admittance of fear, reverent and smiling mentions of blessings or benchmarks, this book seems to cover it all. It's a collection of encouragements from many mothers to the reader. But perhaps the most important message throughout is the one that I know is vital to each new mother's heart: You are not alone.
