This year, our country is celebrating the 100th anniversary of women winning the vote. In 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, and the franchise was no longer restricted to men.

Miracles & Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories from Moms (Nonfiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: In this book, meet dozens of inspiring women who have taken on the toughest, yet most rewarding, role of their lives. From the hilarious to the heartbreaking, these stories reveal the depth of a mother's love and her delight at wearing the title of "Mom." These stories reveal that God clearly speaks to mothers, no matter where they are. One woman awakens in the middle of the night, burdened to pray for her son. Another hears a voice telling her to go to her daughter, despite the miles between them. One mother tells a lyrical bedtime tale of her daughter's adoption. Another shares a stark story of taking in a runaway Amish boy. God's voice in a mother's heart can change lives.

Miracles and Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories from Doctors (Nonfiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: In <b>Miracles & Moments of Grace,</b> Nancy B. Kennedy brings together a breathtaking collection of first-person stories told by physicians from all branches of medicine—family doctors, neurosurgeons, military doctors, OB/GYNs, dentists, and missionary doctors who care for hurting people across our nation and around the globe. Their experiences speak of everything from the rescue of terrified victims in the 9/11 terrorist attacks to the heart-stopping birth of a bloodless baby boy; from a delicate procedure performed in a darkened Haitian pavilion to a terrible secret that tortures a man in his final days. Triumphant or tragic, these poignant accounts are infused with tenderness, wonder, and at times even humor.
