Mother's Day Gift and Contest

Hi everybody.
I want to share with you today about this great little gift book for Mother's Day. It is called "A Mother's Heart Knows" and is filled with all of the wonderful things a Mother's Heart really does know. It reminds us of all we as mom's do and who we are. And each page has beautiful pictures, too.
One of the things I like best about this book is that all of the royalty proceeds from this book go to an organization called WINGS (Women In Need Growing Stronger). and a student missionary scholarship. WINGS is a non-profit organization that provides a domestic violence shelter for women and their children in addition to transitional housing and programs.

To me, these are just added reasons why this is a perfect gift to give those special mother's in you life. Whether it is your mom, your spouses mom, or even a friend who is a mom who you know could use the encouragement in this book!

A Mother's Heart Knows is by Margaret McSweeney. Margaret lives with her husband and two daughters in a Chicago suburb. Her book, A Mother’s Heart Knows was published by Thomas Nelson in 2005. Go Back and Be Happy, a co-authored book will be published by Lion Hudson in July 2008. Margaret has been featured on Greg Wheatly’s “Prime Time America,” TLN’s “Aspiring Women,” and LeSea’s “The Harvest Show.” Margaret writes freelance articles for The Daily Herald, the largest suburban Chicago newspaper. Notable interviews include Wolfgang Puck, Thomas Kinkade, Susan Branch and Dr. John Gottman. Margaret also wrote a feature article for With a master’s degree in international business, Margaret became a vice president in the corporate finance division of a New York City bank and worked there from 1986-1993. Supporting charitable causes is important to Margaret. For the past five years, she has served on the board of directors for WINGS, an organization that helps abused women and their children get a new start in life.

You are just the give-away queen these days. Must be the hormones. Joe McCombs was the Sunday night speaker in MB. He's a retired minister from the Western NC conference. I wasn't able to stay and hear him speak, but was able to meet him Sunday morning.

How's our little "boy" doing? I've been praying for you. I'm trusting God with his life! Hope all is well.
