Book Review: Heaven In Her Arms

In this inspiring, easy-to read book, Catharine Hickem reveals to the reader the importance of the life of Mary in a refreshing, inspiring manner rarely found.
''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.''
As I read this book, I was affected deeply by what a wonderful example Mary is to women today; to me.
I think it is important for Christians to read about Mary, and to realize how humble, trusting, prayerful, godly she was. Not to worship her as do other religions, but to see what God saw in her.
Before reading this book, there were things I hadn't even considered about Mary's life and heart. I never realized how Mary's world would have been turned upside down by the news the angel brought her! Yet she trusted God, young as she was, and continued in her close relationship with Him.
In this book, you will be inspired in your role as a woman! Whether you be a teenager, young woman, married woman, mother or grandmother, this book will prove a teaching tool and inspiration to you.
