Sweet Child of Mine by Jennifer Flanders


What a blessing this Devotional Journal is ! To be honest I wish there had been such things when I was having my own children.  I truly love the pictures in here that you will enjoy for years to come and I know this would really be a wonderful gift to many. A book sure to touch the heart of any mom !

A Devotional Journal for Moms by Jennifer Flanders Isn’t this book so sweet,
there is so much wisdom in here for a new Mamma and for the next generation
to read later in the future !

I just love the way Jennifer has thought of each little area to be filled in by a loving
mother, while she is caring for her children and adding each things caring so that
her child can have these memories to cherish. From before this child was even conceived
until later in life.

This journal is filled with Bible verses on mothers babies and love, that will bring God’s
Word to life to the family. Information to pray for that child before birth and as a child and
as a teen ! Each thing that is included in this Devotional Journal has been added with much
thought given to details.

This would make a very special gift for the New Mom to Be or for a Mom who has children to fill
in for each child. You may want to get one for each baby you have had. Great Baby Shower
present for the expectant christian couple to write down their thoughts as they travel this journey
of pregnancy and birth and training up of their child.

I am sure you will totally enjoy this book and see that it is indeed a true blessing.

I was given this book via the publisher/Author and I recieved this book by applying
through BookCrash , it was given freely for my honest review.

How Do I Love Thee by Jennifer Flanders


I must say I was very excited to be chosen to do this review , as I had often admired Mrs. Flanders website. Her website is educational and informative for the godly christian woman seeking to be a blessing to her family. She truly exemplifies what it means to be a crown to her husband, a godly wife and mother.  In the days we live in I find her life to be refreshing and encouraging to me and I am sure it is to many others as well.  This devotional is a wonderful testimony to her desire to share godly womanhood with younger women and in so doing bring honor to the Lord Jesus Christ !

It is not often that you find a woman who will boldly stand for what is biblical and right in today’s society.  I am happy and blessed to call Jennifer, not only my friend but my sister in the Lord !

My First Impression is what a lovely gift for a Bride to be !
Add some pens, markers or colored pencils and they make a
wonderful gift and a personal addition to your families heritage !
One can color and make them very personal artwork for years
to come in the family !!! Very Nice !!!

As on her blog Jennifer has poured her heart and belief into
these Journals. Each page is filled with wisdom and thoughtfulness
that a young or older wife can fill with love to share with her family
in later years. A true Heritage in how their family began and the times
shared between a husband and wife as they grow together in Grace !

I would very highly recommend this as a bridal shower gift , a wedding
gift or a gift for a young ladies hope chest on a special birthday perhaps.
Also a special anniversary gift for a lady friend would be nice. There is just so
very much included. A place to share before married life through each learning
experience in ones marriage.

What a blessing to future generations of women in godly families !
A Lasting Treasure !

As you can see these pages make for a great devotional, a study and one could easily color in the pictures to make them a work of art !

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and author for my
honest and unbiased review. I applied for this review through BookCrash.
