Heaven In Her Arms by Catherine Hickem

Tuesday, April 3, 2012
Jesus is Mary's son and Jesus is the Son of God. The God of the universe hand picked Mary to raise His Son!

Mary was there the day Jesus was born and she was there the day he was crucified. Her story is deep and rich and has myriad lessons for any woman-mothers, daughters, sisters, friends.

Mary's story reveals that a woman's heart is important to the Father.
When God selected Mary," Hickem says, "He was looking for heart. God set out to find the precise woman who would give her heart to Him, completely and wholly. He wanted a woman with whom He could entrust His perfect Son. This was going to be no ordinary woman."

Heaven in Her Arms will touch your heart if you are facing fear and uncertainty, wondering about leaving your plans behind, feeling a need for community and the support of other women, or wanting to deepen your life of faith.

The author writes very well.  The reader will not feel preached at and many of the topics may be applied to one's life even if one is not particularly religious.  Even though the topics may seem like common sense, we all need to be reminded of them at least once in a while.  Heaven In Her Arms is a fast read, but the lessons will stick with the reader long after he/she puts the book down.  This book is recommended to adult readers, especially mothers.
