Genre: Parenting

In the beginning was Eve…a woman who became a mother with no woman to guide her, to talk her through parenting. Most of us don’t have to struggle through it alone, like Eve, we have mothers, sisters, aunts, and friends who have become a mother before we did. And we also have the biblical mothers to turn to for advice by reading and studying about them in the Word.

Mothers like Hannah, a truly amazing woman of God who wanted a son so badly that she dedicated him to God before he was even born.

Like Leah, who hoped to win the love of her husband by producing him with many sons.

Like Jesus’s mother, Mary, who had the blessing of raising God’s own son…

And many others.

God uses mothers for his extraordinary purposes. And us modern moms struggle through many of the same things that biblical moms struggled with. Such as doubt, fear, grief, patience, etc. In addition to learning how these biblical role-models reacted, in the book are also included:

 reflective and journaling questions
 warmhearted quotes from a diverse group of women and men
 mothers’ prayers

Don’t miss MOTHERS OF THE BIBLE SPEAK TO MOTHERS OF TODAY. This book is the perfect gift for moms – a bit late for mother’s day on my blog, but a great gift for any mom, any time. Not only that, but this attractive hardbound book is designed for gift giving and is sure to be a blessing to your favorite mom—whether she be a struggling young mom of a newborn, or the middle age mom of six. 254 pages.
