Publisher's Description

The same God who has shown His faithfulness to mothers across time is faithful still to mothers today. Daunting challenges that mothers face day in and day out are not unique to this time, and modern-day moms have much wisdom to gain from true examples recorded in Scripture. In Mothers of the Bible Speak to Mothers of Today, readers meet ordinary women of their day who, by God’s incomparable grace, were used for extraordinary purposes. Readers will journey through the lives of 15 such mothers—like 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 God’s 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.

      This book by Kathi Macias should be on every mom's bookshelf. Christians who have grown up in church will become reaquainted with mothers of the Bible and see, through Kathi's insightful teaching, what their lives show us today. But even those who are not familiar with these characters already (Eve, Sarah, Leah, Rebecca, Mary, Eunice, Lois, etc.) will gain just as much from the book since Kathi's storytelling makes the lessons clear to all, no matter the level of biblical background. Mothers of today from all walks of life learn from mothers of the Bible on subjects like comparing children, generosity, persevering in prayer, faithfulness, forgiveness, generosity, playing favorites, and sacrifice. I know I will be a better mom for having read this book.

      "Hey Mom, you got any wisdom for me?" When my children have asked me that, I have often sent them to favorite Bible verses. But now since reading this awesome book by Kathi Macias I am familiar with full stories of real mothers in the Bible, not just short verses, in those stories. I see the depth of Eve, and the quiet wisdom of Lois and Eunice. The torn heart of Rachel with two angry sons and the glory of Mary the mother of Jesus have become vivid and exciting. I give five stars to this book because it leaves me with a heart of thanksgiving. I treasure the new insights, and knowledge of Scripture that I have too often taken for granted. All fifteen mothers speak today and give wisdom to my motherhood. A huge thank you to Kathi Macias for giving us MOTHERS OF THE BIBLE SPEAK TO MOTHERS OF TODAY!
