Why are mothers one of God’s best creations? Let us count the ways…

  • She is the master of multi-tasking! Husbands, kids, career, time for herself – all of these she can juggle with the best of them
  • She will worry about you, whether you’re 3 years old or 30 years old
  • She will help you finish your school project, even though she’s dead tired at the end of the day.
  • That thing called maternal instinct? It’s almost always right. So you better listen to what she says.
  • Her gentleness and sweetness can help make a bad day at school (or even in the office) fade away.
  • She has that “secret recipe” that for you, is the best you’ve ever tasted.
  • She will love you, no matter what you do
  • God had a very special plan when He used her to give you life.

Aside from the flowers and chocolates that we traditionally shower on our favorite women on earth, why not give her something that she can cherish for a long time: words that will nourish her heart and soul. Here are some book gift suggestions for the most important woman in your life:
