Product Description "She’s always been there, doing the things mothers do…. Isn’t that just like God?" Each story in this collection reveals a mother’s heart as she loves, prays for, teaches, comforts, and strengthens her children. As these true stories bring smiles, nods of recognition, and even some tears, they bring us into a deeper intimacy with our heavenly Father. For "If you…know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!" (Matthew 7:11 NASB). These sixty short stories are written for moms as well as the grown-up kids who love them, and they will be read again and again, savored, and shared. The collection, including stories from many of your favorite authors—Sheila Walsh, Stormie Omartian, Beth Moore, and Barbara Johnson—is perfect for devotional reading. From Publishers Weekly Moms will need a box of tissues close at hand for this a book of "true stories and encouragement" from Christian luminaries such as Beth Moore, Barbara Johnson, Stormie Omartian, Max Lucado and Gloria Gaither. Some of the stories Holmes (The Heart of a Father) includes are heavy on the syrup, others (Lucado) are deeply theological and still others (Johnson, Chonda Pierce) are comical. All are short and accessible, drawing on stories and personal experiences. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.
