A few years ago a lady from my church gave me this book, The Heart of a Mother by Ron DiCianni. It is a short book packed full of inspirational Scripture verses and encouraging quotes from various sources. Read a few pages at a time for a pick me up or to bring a smile to your face.
The back cover says:
God sees beauty in the heart of a mother...
Beyond the housework and the homework, beyond brown-bag lunches and red-eyed exhaustion is a living, loving thing called the heart of a mother.
This gorgeous book celebrates motherhood as God intended it. In this rich collection of Scripture, quotes and original artwork by Ron DiCianni, you will be inspired and challenged at the same time. Enduring themes such as prayer, God's protection, and faith versus fear will remind you that...Beyond the caregiving, there is soul care. Beyond the doing, there is being. Let this book make the difference for you.
Thank God for the privilege and responsibility HE has given you as you nurture, train and love the children HE has entrusted to your care.
