A Mother’s Love: Celebrating Every Kind of Mom {A Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own. 

This Mother’s Day, a new product from (in)courage will give women the opportunity to offer the mothers in their lives a beautifully curated and customized experience, filled with real-life stories, Scripture, brief devotions, and biblical encouragement. 

In this beautiful book, the (in)courage community has gathered unique and diverse stories that offer heartfelt encouragement to all sorts of mothers, whether they be mothers in the traditional sense, mothers in the spiritual sense, or mother-figures who break the mold. 

This book is full of reflections of God’s heart, sure to help any daughter give a tangible expression of love to her mom, and it will also allow any woman to share a meaningful gift with a mother-figure who has been impactful in her life, a new mom in her circle of friends, or a close loved one facing the joys and challenges of motherhood.

Anna Rendell is the author of several devotionals for women. She is the Digital Content Manager at (in)courage, a DaySpring community, and a speaker who shares real-life stories of encouragement with moms’ and women’s ministries. She lives in Minnesota with her husband and their three kids. For more from Anna, visit, and find her on all social media as @annaerendell.
(in)courage welcomes you to a place where authentic, brave women connect deeply with God and others. Founded in 2009 by DaySpring, the Christian products subsidiary of Hallmark Cards, Inc., (in)courage is a vibrant community that reaches thousands of women every day. Through the power of shared stories and meaningful resources, (in)courage champions women and celebrates the strength Jesus gives to live out our calling as God’s daughters. In the middle of your unfine moments and ordinary days, you are invited to become a woman of courage.

There is something about an (in)courage book that I just cannot resist. From the moment I came across their website MANY years ago, I fell in love with their beautifully written and oh-so-relatable stories and devotions. So, when I see that (in)courage name or logo on a new book, I have rather high expectation. This one did not disappoint.

First and foremost, this book is absolutely beautiful. Of course, we're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but let's be honest, that IS where many of us get their initial impression, right? I loved the beautiful cover, and was happy to see the adorable illustrations continued inside throughout the pages as well. From beautiful images of mothers and children to images depicting some of the not-so-fun aspects of motherhood (*cough*laundry*cough*), I couldn't get enough of them. More importantly though, the words also were equally fantastic. I loved the stories and devotions within---all perfect for moms--- and even the spaces throughout with room to journal your thoughts. Overall, this is a fantastic book that any mama is sure to appreciate-- definitely a must see!
