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.
Kathi Macias has writtena book about the Mothers of the Bible to Mothers today. She is a great person and always write some great books. This one would be a great gift to all the Mothers you have on your Christmas list. The tile speaks for its self. So make someone happy that love to read and add this to your shopping list.
"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!
