This is a very inspiring book about how mothers make a difference in life, it paints a beautiful portrait about the joy of motherhood. I love the testimonies that were given by reading this book, the lessons and the secret prayers. I will recommend this book to everyone, like a gift from above, nothing can compare to a Mother`s love!

Recommends it for: mothers & daughters
I learned so much about what mothers pass on to their children, and what my own mother passed on to me. I highly recommend it.

T.D.Jakes in his own unique way explain what mamas teach to their kids. One of the greatest things mamas teach, is - to believe in ourselves, to be broa- minded, power of words, to be responsible, to love ourselves, to celebrate others, to banish bitterness, to endure, etc. I just got so much encouragement through every page of the book.
I did not complete reading this book, not because there was anything wrong with it, but because not being a mother myself I wanted to get it into the hands of someone who could really relate with the content. I donated the book.
