Book Description:

Motherhood. Not for the faint hearted or blasé, it's a state of being that tries one's patience, purpose and peace.

Sequel to 10 Women Who Overcame their Past, Dayspring Macleod's 10 Women Who were Spiritual Mothers is set to be yet another poignant read. In tackling themes from purity to patience, each focused narrative allows the reader an insight into the lives of women whom they may have heard of but not known well. From Katherine Parr, sixth and final wife of Henry VIII, to Sharon Dickens and Lisa Harper, the ten women represent a spectrum of life delivered via the prism of motherhood.

This book isn't only for mothers. It's for those who are heartbroken, single, bereft or at peace in later life. Discipleship is a key theme, be it with the children who litter your hallways with Nerf Pellets or friends undergoing the ups and downs of infertility. As a woman who knows the support of women in her own life, Macleod has gracefully painted a canvas of joy in sorrows, peace and panic and Christ's love triumphant.

This is a surprising book. It is not afraid to tread in difficult places. It is not just the stories of inspiring women; it challenges readers with the strength of the Scriptures. That is why it is able to offer comfort.
--Kirsten Birkett, Author of Imperfect Reflections

This is not a book for the faint-hearted but neither is motherhood in any of its forms. Time spent on this serious study of motherhood will bear fruit in families and church families. To God be the glory!
--Irene Howat, Award-winning author

… a great read. … I appreciate how gratitude comes up over and over again in Dayspring's careful reflections on what is key in our walk with the Lord. This book encouraged me to seek to be be a valiant woman who pours into the life of others to God's glory.
