My Mother’s Quilts: Devotions of Love, Legacy, Family and Faith Published by Worthy Publishing on March 8th 2016
Genres: Crafts & Hobbies, Devotional, Parenting, Relationships
The devotions in My Mother’s Quilts are inspired by family heirloom quilts, some more than 100 years old. With humor and sincerity, Ramona Richards shares her memories and lessons learned from the quilters whose legacies live on in their work. Rich, personal, sometimes heartbreaking, often funny, each reading provides a lesson and encouragement from the faithful women who crafted the quilts. Together, these devotions depict the enduring legacy of faith, family, and beloved traditions. Includes full color photographs of each of the 30 quilts!
My Mother’s Quilts: Devotions on Love, Legacy, Family and Faith by Ramona Richards is an awesome devotional. While this book has lots of pictures of some beautiful quilts, it is way more than a quilt picture book. Each devotional itself shares the story of each individual quilt. It includes a sentence or two of a prayer starter, and then a Bible verse.
While this is a book you will want to read in its entirety like I did, you will want to keep it close to you so that when you are reading your daily devotionals you can include this book as a devotional guide as well.
As a baby, I received a quilt from my grandfather who passed before I was born. Every Christmas my mom would bring that quilt out and we would enjoy its beauty during the Christmas season, and then she would pack it up again until next year. When I found that exact quilt in this book, my heart swelled with such fond memories of that quilt!
