Readers will journey through the lives of 15 such motherslike Eve, Sarah, Jochebed, Hannah, and Bathsheba of the Old Testament, continuing through the New Testament with stories such as those of Elizabeth, Salome, and Mary. Exploring heart issues like fear, discontentment, grief, and gratitude, readers will discover solutions through biblical models of prayer, sacrifice, and faithfulness. Through these life lessons, the author points to the ultimate unfolding of Gods eternal purposes across the seasons of motherhood. Each chapter ends with a Making It Personal section and an appropriate prayer. Beautifully designed, this book makes the perfect gift for a mother on any occasion.
