Jesus is Mary’s son and Jesus is the Son of God. The God of the universe hand picked Mary to raise His Son! 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. "When God selected Mary,” Hickem says, “He was looking for heart. God set out to find the precise woman who would give her heart to Him, completely and wholly. He wanted a woman with whom He could entrust His perfect Son. This was going to be no ordinary woman.” Heaven in Her Arms will touch your heart if you are facing fear and uncertainty, wondering about leaving your plans behind, feeling a need for community and the support of other women, or wanting to deepen your life of faith. Hickem reflects on Mary’s story and offers practical applications, as well as inspiring real-life stories from contemporary women. With a six-week Bible study for individuals or small groups, Heaven in Her Arms shows the life of faith Mary exemplified and God’s tender heart for His daughters.I always wondered how God chose Mary to raise his son, Jesus, and this book offers some great insight! Motherhood is often pushed aside and unappreciated, this book made me feel more content with my decision to be a stay at home Mom to my 19 month old son. This book would be a great discussion piece amongst Bible study or ladies grous as it talks about theultimate Mother of all time, Mary. There's a lot of talk about Male Heroes of the scriptures but rarely do we get a glimpse of the female heroes. I now look at my own life in a new light and the paths God has chosen for me, for he knows what's best for us. I would definitely reccomend this book, it's also a great gift giving piece, especially at Mothers day!
