My Mother's Quilts Devotions by Ramona Richards + Giveaway



Title:  My Mother's Quilts
Author: Ramona Richards
Publisher:  Worthy Inspired
Release Date:  March 8, 2016
Genre: Non-Fiction (Family)/Devotional




Inspired by thirty family heirloom quilts, each devotion shares the enduring legacy of faith, family and tradition in our lives.








Beautiful doesn't seem to cut it with My Mother's Quilt: Devotions of Love, Legacy, Family and Faith by Ramona Richards.  It is so much more.  First off, the presentation: hardback, burgundy linen cover with a dust jacket and colored pages in a fairly thick weight, it is something special. It's one those books you'll want to leave by your bedside or your favorite chair.  When you want to read it, you'll be curling up with a quilt or throw, your Bible and this book right on your lap. A great read even if you're not using as your daily devotional.

Now, as to the content, Ramona has blessed us with her thoughts, and her family's legacy. Each one ties in with a quilt, starting off with a scripture for us to dwell on.  Through the quilts we read stories, happy memories, as well as sad ones, but in the end, just like in each devotion, a prayer to our Almighty God, giving us peace and strength.  This is different because it's not only a devotion, but also one family's legacy to us, and thoughts and prayers that join in.  As someone who enjoys sewing, I'm encouraged to see beyond the craft, but the meaning of it, along with a desire to fulfill my dream of making a quilt myself one day. Maybe I will.

  1. Did you know that it is illegal to give any kind of extra entries into a giveaway (regardless of whether they are mandatory entries or not) in exchange for money or purchase? http://blog.rafflecopter.com/2015/04/no-purchase-necessary-giveaways/
