A tangible example of love, dedication, strength, and commitment.
There is nothing quite like a quilt. Every quilt has a story. You just have to look for it. I have a handmade book of the stories behind my great-grandmother’s quilts and this devotional book – My Mother’s Quilts: Devotions of Love, Legacy, Family and Faith – by Ramona Richards struck a heart chord deep inside of me.
Ms. Richards was handed down a quilting legacy. She didn’t just accept the legacy of the beauty of the quilts. Instead, she asked about and searched to find out the stories behind the quilts. In doing so, she found inspiration, love, and a connection to family.
Throughout this devotional book, Ms. Richards shares those connections, those stories of hope and faith, those enriching anecdotes that make life richer. Each of the 60 devotionals features a quilt made by her mother. With each quilt made, there was hope and strength sewn right in. Each of the devotionals has a corresponding scripture that relates to the story shared. There is also a Prayer Starter at the end of each devotional.
Beautiful photographs accompany each of the devotionals, printed in full color on study pages. This hard-cover book is a treasure of faith and encouragement.
Whether you decide to spread this out over a couple of months, reading a single devotional each day or to dive in an absorb it all at once, this book is charmingly adaptable. Even having read through all of the devotionals in quick succession, I can’t wait to sit down and read them again.
If hope and encouragement are found in family for you, this is a book that will bring you joy. Pick up your copy and begin your devotionals with My Mother’s Quilts. And, there is more: the author is giving away one of the quilts from the devotionals book. Read on for more information.
