Miracles and Moments of Grace: A Book Review

About The Book:

Hear touching and inspiring stories from fifty women who have taken on the toughest, yet most rewarding, assignment of their lives—motherhood!
In Miracles & Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories from Moms, fifty mothers--from new moms to seasoned moms--share their most memorable moments. From the hilarious to the heartbreaking, these stories reveal the depth of a mother's love and her delight at wearing the title of "Mom."

One mother tells a lyrical bedtime tale of her daughter's adoption. Another shares a stark story of taking in a runaway Amish boy. The mother of an autistic boy shares her story of three magical days with him, and yet another takes a startling phone call from her adult son, who has made a heart-stopping decision.

"God believes in mothers," one woman says in relating the harrowing birth of her child. In these stories, God does indeed speak clearly to the heart of mothers. One mother awakens in the middle of the night burdened to pray for her son. Another mother hears a voice calling her to go to her pregnant daughter, no matter that they are separated by many miles. Lives are changed--and saved--by the faithful actions of loving mothers.
The mothers in these stories all have one thing in common--they adore their children, they are in awe of them at times, and they wouldn't trade a single moment of their lives.

My Review:

I absolutely loved reading this collection of stories from moms in all ages and stages. It was a beautifully put-together book that will appeal to moms of all ages. Whether you are new mom or have already moved to the grandmother stage of parenting, you will laugh and cry as you read through Miracles and Moments of Grace. I know I did. The book was organized in a nice manner, reminding me very much of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. You could very easily read right through the book in one sitting or use it like a devotional, reading one story daily. 

With Mother's Day only a few short weeks away, this would be the ideal gift idea for any mother in your life, or any woman that you love like a mom!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.

BUY IT: You can purchase Miracles and Moments of Grace at your favorite bookseller from Leafwood Publishers.
