Product Description (from

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 such mothers— like Eve, Sarah, Hannah, Elizabeth, Salome, Mary, and others. Exploring heart issues like fear, discontentment, grief, and gratitude, readers will discover solutions through biblical models of prayer, sacrifice, and faithfulness. Each chapter ends with personal application and prayer.Beautifully designed, this book makes the perfect gift for a mother on any occasion.

This is a very nice bible study book. It would be great to work through on your own or with a group of moms. The book itself is very pretty and even the pages inside have little decorative flourishes on them making this an excellent gift book. The book is easy to read and follow and filled with lots of good biblical truth and encouragement for moms. Each chapter ends with questions for reflection which is helpful in personal processing or as a group discussion guide. I enjoy the author's down-to-earth, practical tone, non-guilt-inducing tone. She encourages moms without showing us just how much we suck :)
