Publishers Description "This book answers the very questions that today's women are asking. The engaging anecdotes and instructive essays are wonderful. I have looked for a book like this for many years. Every mother, grandmother, and spiritual mother, in other words, every woman will find great help and hope in this book." (Susan Hunt) "This book is a fascinating catalogue of Mothers of the Wise and Good, like St. Augustine's mother Monica who watered the ground with her tears until he turned to Christ... Many will identify with this book." (Elisabeth Elliott) This is a new improved edition of the book that Solid Ground Christian Books published in 2001. Numerous footnotes will make this book even more accessible to the modern woman.
