Book Review: Heaven in Her Arms

Heaven in her Arms

Heaven in her Arms Why God Chose Mary to Raise His Son and What It Means for You

By Catherine Hickem

''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.''

This book was incredibly inspiring to me, as a daughter, sister, friend and hopefully mother someday!!! Read it; you will not be disappointed.

Here are a few quotes from the wonderful book: 

''Mary's life will remind us that there are no accidents in God's divine plan for His daughters.''

''There is freedom to be found in understanding your relationship to your mother through the lens of God's intentions.''

Mary didn't have social position, wealth or power. In fact, she was quite young! But God knew her heart was pure and trusting and she passionately loved Him.

''God wanted His Son, the king of kings, to come from a humble woman so that the entire world could relate. ''

''I believe God selected Mary because she had a heart after His.''

''Fear surfaces when we realize that life may not go as we planned.''

''Mary never forgot angel's message: 'The Lord is with you'.

'Mary knew her life wasn't her own. 

''Mary understood that there was no better place to be than in a place of obedience to God's plan and will.

Check back soon for a longer review written by myself.

I received this book free from I was encouraged to express my full opinion, negative or not.
