Motherhood. Not for the faint hearted or blasé, it’s a state of being that tries one’s patience, purpose and peace.
Sequel to 10 Women Who Overcame their Past, Dayspring Macleod’s 10 Women Who were Spiritual Mothers is set to be yet another poignant read.
In tackling themes from purity to patience, each focused narrative allows the reader an insight into the lives of women whom they may have heard of but not known well. From Katherine Parr, sixth and final wife of Henry VIII, to Sharon Dickens and Lisa Harper, the ten women represent a spectrum of life delivered via the prism of motherhood.
This book isn’t only for mothers. It’s for those who are heartbroken, single, bereft or at peace in later life. Discipleship is a key theme, be it with the children who litter your hallways with Nerf Pellets or friends undergoing the ups and downs of infertility. As a woman who knows the support of women in her own life, Macleod has gracefully painted a canvas of joy in sorrows, peace and panic and Christ’s love triumphant.
