Lessons from an Extraordinary Mother: Mary
Instead of pop-culture parenting advice, Sarah Jakes looks to the life of Mary for answers and inspiration for her own experiences as a mother. Mary was a humble girl chosen to play a huge role in the plan of God to redeem mankind.
As mothers, why not look at the historical record of the woman God chose to mother His own Son? A mortal like us, with fears, dreams, doubts--yet Mary submitted herself to the plan of God. That sounds like a pattern I should follow.
I received a free review copy of Dear Mary from Bethany House publishers for my honest review.
