Being a mom has a lot of highs and lows. There are days you love your role so much it hurts. You want to cuddle those precious children forever. Then there are days full of bodily fluids, crying and frustration. You feel like you might just be the worst mom ever.
I was interested when offered a chance to review The Mother Letters by Amber and Seth Haines. This small book is full of encouraging words for moms. It is actually a collection of letters a variety of women have written to encourage mothers. Each letter has a theme and at only two or three pages, they are quick and easy reads.
The letters cover a wide range of topics. Although most could be considered general encouragement, there are also a few for moms who have lost a child, moms with children who have special needs and more.
The book itself is beautiful and would make a great gift book for Mother’s Day or to give a young or struggling mom. The advice is practical and while not full of scriptures, it definitely has a Christian slant to it. One might disagree with a point here and there, but in general it seemed non-controversial.
If you need some encouragement on your mothering journey or know someone else who does, this book might give the lift that’s needed.
