This compilation tells the stories of mothers of all ages, from all walks of life, in their own voices. But these women have faced demons from the past and challenges of the present by opening themselves to God’s grace. They tell their stories of hurt and healing to guide others down similar paths to freedom and forgiveness.

If you felt neglected as a child, suffered abuse of one sort or another or had to deal with a complicated mother/daughter relationship, the book is for you. I plan to pass m

Very encouraging and a must read for women of all ages.

I am one of the authors of this compilation, but my unbiased opinion of this book is that it is great. I love to hear and read stories with a redeeming Christian theme. This certainly fit the bill.

I got something out of each author's story--a takeaway lesson or was inspired to continue my journey of faith. This is not a how to love your mother self-help book. These are stories of nine courageous women who learned how to give or receive forg

This was a very inspiring book. I loved, loved, loved it. I wanted to read one story a day, but could not put it down. Thank you Catherine Lawton for sending me this book. I am currently going through my own struggle and the stories made me realize I am a strong woman too. I am passing this book to my mother and she is to pass it to another. Mother that inspires her. Thank you again. It was the first book ive ever won and what a great book!!!!
