Etched... Upon my heart book review and giveaway

Hey everyone. I have a book review and giveaway for you today. I was recently given a copy of the book Etched... Upon my heart by Jill Kelly

Isn't the cover beautiful!

A brief synopsis of the book
" New York Times best selling author Jill Kelly shares deeply personal experiences as a mother trying to make every moment count, against the backdrop of trying circumstances, in Etched...Upon my heart:What We Learn and Why We Never Forget. "this book is everything I hope my daughters eventually learn, always remember, and never forget. It's everything I would share with you, woman to woman and mother to mother."

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The book is broken down into chapters dealing with love,significance, forgiveness, suffering, giving,prayer, faithfulness and death with memories of the authors experience dealing with each topic. Memories covering everything from premarital sex, to the death of her son from a fatal disease to the author's relationship with her mother and the infidelity the author experienced in her own marriage. Through all these moments and snippets the author shares with us she relates them to her relationship with Christ and how she grew through that relationship and learned how to handle and fully appreciate every moment given to her.
This book is a must read for any mother, or woman for that matter who is looking to grow closer in her own relationship to Christ. I love how she related everything back to Christ and how without him in our lives we are unable to truly be able to love or forgive.
I found myself relating to the authors stories about the early years in her marriage and the love she felt for her children when they were born. I laughed and cried through many parts of this book and would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good read.

One copy of this book will be available to one lucky reader. Giveaway rules...
