Reviews - What do customers think about Through the Generations: The Unique Call of Motherhood?
A Treat for All Generations May 29, 2000
Charlotte and Karen have woven together a precious look at mother love through the generations and seasons of life. In sharing their own history, these insightful ladies provide encouragement to any woman fortunate enough to be called Mommy.
This book is j-u-s-t right! May 27, 2000
How many mothers have their own mothers nearby to encourage and assist during the child-rearing years? Not many, and getting fewer all the time.
This gift booklet provides a little of that inter-generational wisdom we all need through its touching anecdotes and warm honesty. Adelsperger and Hayse have done a great job of providing two different points of view while maintaining a consistent voice. The timeline of the book covers four generations, but the reader comes away with a sense of how the real issues--love, family, faith--stay the same through every era. There's no preaching here to scare off the unchurched. Rather, there's a window into how a Christian family views (and "does") motherhood through the generations.
Women of all ages will find something to connect with and learn from in this delightful book. It would be the perfect table favor at a mother-daughter tea.
