A Pocketful of Hope for Mothers is a sweet book full of encouragement for new to well-seasoned mothers. It’s a book to keep on the coffee table or on a bedside table for the moments that you may need a word to keep you going throughout the amazing but sometimes very tiring journey of parenting that the Lord has called you to.
What I first noted of this book is that it’s heavily illustrated but I don’t say that in any negative way. The book is beautiful in the image just as much as it is in the words and scriptures that were carefully chosen to be included. I love having pretty books on my shelves and this totally inspires me not only in my motherhood journey but also in my creating of art.
What you’ll find in the book are poems, Bible verses in the form of scripture art, personal stories, words to live by (i.e quotes), and prayers to pray to the Lord. There are two parts to the book, the first is for new mothers of babies and the second is more for the journey as our children grow. The biggest take away is to live just today as today comes and to fill each day with love.
I was delighted and reminded of just how much and many times the Bible mentions motherhood. I like the fact that these wonderful verses and truths were brought together in this book. I was genuinely touched by the author’s stories that she shared about her Grandmother that is found within the first few pages. Another writing I love is called ” Mama Art” and it goes to mention how every mother is an artist and how we are infused with the resurrection power of the Master Craftsman for our mothering journey.
Heartwarming and uplifting, this 128 pages, 9″ x 6″ hardcover book from Tyndale would we a welcome addition to any mothers bookshelf with for themselves or to give a gift. I recommend it!
