Sarah Jakes' book, Dear Mary: Lessons from the Mother of Jesus for the Modern Mom, "explores biblical stories about Mary-as well as stories from her (Jakes) own life- to better understand what living for Christ can look like today and how to model that for your children." Each chapter is a separate letter to Mary. Jakes writes about her own personal experience in each chapter and writes about how Mary handled each situation If we look at Mary's example as a mother, we can "learn valuable lessons from her life."
I loved how honest Jakes was about her own personal struggles. It isn't often that you read something so raw and real, and I found that really encouraging. I really think this is an inspiring book for mothers.
*I received this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.*
