A delightful collection of the writings, thoughts, and prayers of Ruth Bell Graham, a mother of five herself, which will encourage mothers in every stage of life. While husband Billy traveled the world over, Graham was left to parent alone. The unique strength, quiet wisdom, and subtle humor that sustained her during those challenging years comes alive on the pages of this little book which offers refreshment and inspiration for moms feeling overworked and unappreciated. This colorful book includes many touching and humorous stories coupled with photographs from the Graham family album.
