Mom-lit for Mother's Day!

I just received a lovely email from a reader who is planning to give copies of "The Secret Life of Becky Miller" and "Renovating Becky Miller" as gifts to friends for Mother's Day. Reading a story about someone who "gets it" - who goes through the struggles of conflicting priorities that women face these days - especially when that story is wrapped in giggles - does seem to be a great gift.

It occurred to me that a lot of SONS and HUSBANDS and FATHERS and guy friends are going to be searching for creative gifts for the women in their lives. "She's on a diet and yells at me when I buy chocolate, flowers don't last very long, what do I do?"

Try the gift of mom-lit. Or any great fiction. You'll find amazing Christian authors and their books through my links in the right-hand column. And then be sure to ALSO arrange a little quiet time so she can read. :-)

Pick stories that are uplifting and have some long-lasting inspiration woven among the escapist adventure and humor. You'll be her hero!
