Being a mom is an experience I wouldn’t trade for anything. Although my perfect dreams on motherhood were altered over 7 years ago when Lydia died, every part has made me who I am today. And for that, I am so incredibly thankful.
I am so VERY excited to tell you about this new book that was just released that I am honored to be a part of. It’s called THE MOM QUILT. A book compiled by the amazing ladies, Paula Rollo from Beauty Through Imperfection Blog, Becky Mansfield from Your Modern Family, and Jodi Durr at Meaningful Mamma Blog.
This book will make you smile, laugh, as well as shed a few tears all the while filling you with encouragement and inspiration.
Over 60 wonderful moms and bloggers contributed to make this book, each sharing a special story from their heart about life as mom.
Quote from Paula Rollo: “Even though our lives as mom may look very different from one another, there are certain emotions, experiences and most of all love that unites us. We like to envision these things as threads that bind us together in our lives as “mom”. We all play a unique part, and might do motherhood in different ways than those that surround us, but that bond of love makes us not so different after all.”
“These stories are a reflection of the things we share and the things that make us unique. It is emotional and beautiful, you will likely laugh and cry right along with the authors as they share an authentic glimpse into their lives, struggles, joys and successes (I know I did).”
In addition to being encouraged yourself by this book, all the money from purchases of the book will be going towards building a water well in Kenya on the Mercy House property. Currently, water is trucked in from miles away. It is costly in time and money and we would love to take away that stress and expense from the ministry so they are freed up to focus in other areas.”
Our first and current goal is to raise $40,000 through book sales to cover the cost of this well, which is being built on top of a mountain, where the Mercy House is located.
This is no small feat in and of itself, but we have every confidence that we will be able to raise that money and more through the sales of this wonderful book! You can buy your copy of the book here, starting on Monday. Every dollar will go towards the Mercy House project.
The e-book itself costs $9.99 – if you would like to donate an additional amount you can put any amount above $9.99 in the payment field and then click “update cart”. The additional amount will also go straight towards the well project for the Mercy House!
