Dear Mary

Lessons From the Mother of Jesus for the Modern Mom


Sarah Jakes

First let me say Wow I wish I had this book many years ago. There is so much information that you can use in your life and with your children in this beautifully written book.

I love the way she weaves a tapestry of history about the Mother of Jesus throughout the stores. The way Sarah writes this it makes you think of how Mary Jesus Mother at such a young age was so much more mature then what we were and the kids now and days are. How she handles the very life of Jesus and protecting Him and yet letting Him be who He was and letting Him do what God sent Him here to do for us. God defiantly picked a great lady and man, but we all know God knows exactly what He is doing He never makes a mistake.

Sarah really makes you stop and visualizes Jesus Mother differently then what we use to think of her being. A woman who opens her body to receive the gift that she will later have to give to the world how hard this must have been for her. Mary gave self-sacrificing how could you not admire a lady like that? Could a lady of today give so readily to God without question or running away from Him?

Sarah says “Mary defied all odds and fought a fight that no mother will ever be able to match. It is true through Mary who stood for a broken person, the lost person, and you produced salvation through yourself, for yourself and for the world.

Look at it this way one woman one child gave us salvation. I never thought of Mary in that way until I read this book , those are my words okay actually I think God gave me those words to write to you how I felt in  my heart from God—but it is so true!!! Sarah said “Mary did you know that you would sacrifice your heart as a Mother so that your Son could give His heart to the world?” Two hearts sacrificed for the world that was totally in sin. How could I ever doubt God’s love for me?

We don’t deserve God’s forgiveness, love or blessings but He forgives us and loves us anyway. What awesome God we serve.

This truly is a must read I am so blessed I got this to review it has really shone a new light on Mary mother of Jesus.

I received this beautiful book free from Bethany House for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions are entirely my own and no one else’s. Thanks Bethany House for a great book!!!
