HUNT, ANGELA E.
THE STORY JAR
While cleaning in a tiny old church, Beth Williams finds a gallon-sized mason jar filled with an odd assortment of items. "It's a story jar," explains Mrs. Halley, the newly widowed pastor's wife. "Every item in it represents a mother's story and a miracle of God."
Curious, Beth listens as the tale behind each object unfolds: a blue hair ribbon and the mother who faces her greatest fear...a silver ring and the woman who finally sees into her daughter's heart...a tiny, yellow sock and the adoption that tests a young mother's patience and faith.
In addition to three heart-wrenching, heart-warming novellas, The Story Jar features true-life tributes to their mothers from Jerry Jenkins, Francine Rivers, Debbie Macomber and others. This is a book that will lift your spirit and lead you to new faith in the Father as it honours mothers everywhere.
A charming collection of powerful mother-love novellas. These are stories as much about faith and trust in God as they are about motherhood. Three mothers face different life-changing challenges -- cancer, teenage rebellion and infertility. All heavy issues that could burden a reader however each author infuses such hope and spirituality into each story that I came away uplifted instead. A compelling read that was over way too fast.
Added bonus: a variety of authors have written sweet tributes to their own mothers including Debbie Macomber, Francine Rivers, Lori Copeland, among others.
