A Pocketful of Hope for Mothers is a beautiful conversation between the author and you and would make the perfect gift for a young mother.
This is a beautiful little book, perfect for a mother in your life, filled to the brim with hopeful and comforting quotes from poets like Emily Dickinson and William Shakespeare and others.
The book is organized into two sections the “Now” and the “Then” sections.
“Now is filled with the thoughts and journal entries of the author around the basic theme of encouragement for new moms.
The “Then” are thoughts that come from the author’s grandmother, a woman filled with warmth and kindness and faith. She collected quotes, thoughts, and bible quotes and these are what the author shares in this second section of the book.
The two sections are tied into one with a memory of an apron.
A very special apron that resides in the author’s kitchen towel drawer today. The author’s grandmother wore this apron and stashed in its pockets little trinkets for her granddaughter to find including a little pink seashell, a blue feather, and a roll of Life Savers.
If you are new mom, this is a perfect book to roam through in those times when you can use a little encouragement for the road ahead. And if you are already a mom, or even a grandmom, this book provides a gentle tour down the byways of your memories with young children.
It really is the perfect gift for any mom.
