The Art of Motherhood (Hardcover)
Laugh and cry with thirty of your favorite LDS authors in this richly illustrated book as they share unforgettable true stories of mothers and mothering from their own family relationships. These vivid scenes—some lovely, some poignant, some hilarious—remind us that no other human experience packs more emotion, learning, anxiety, and satisfaction into every moment of every day than motherhood. Each piece offers a different perspective on the joys and challenges of this role and illustrates mothering as an art of empathy, endurance, and unparalleled promise. In motherhood, a woman has a tiny glimpse of the powerful feelings experienced by our Heavenly Parents; through it, she is magnificently prepared for exaltation with the family she diligently serves.

This book is SO BEAUTIFUL! The stories are truly heart-touching and the pictures are breath-taking! You will laugh and you will cry and you will ooh and you will aah. 30 different authors have come together to write stories about their mothers or how they mother their own families. My favorite stories are about the little girl who didn't get a single Valentine's card and how her mother helped her...and...the one that teaches that "there's no way to be a perfect mother, but a million way to be a good one."...and...of course...all the rest :) Authors Include: Kathryn Jenkins Gordon Jennie Hansen Traci Hunter Abramson Anita Stansfield Lucille Johnson Ed J. Pinegar Kitty De Ruyter-Bons Jack R. Christianson Jeri Gilchrist Betsy Brannon Green Gale Sears Deanna Buxton Jennette Guymon-King Josi S. Kilpack Mike Winder Toni Sorenson Sarah Eden Michele Ashman Bell Jody Durfee Kerry Blair Annette Lyon Melanie Jacobson Nancy Campbell Allen Heather B. Moore Julie Wright Alma J. Yates Jodi Marie Robinson Richard Allen Jeffrey Savage Joni Hilton This is a perfect book for any mother or for anyone who has a mother :)

I actually bought this book because I loved the cover artwork by Sandra Rast. It's on a platestand in my livingroom, and will be an annual decoration I display around Mother's Day. I enjoyed all of the stories about mothers, and got teary-eyed over many of them. It's a great addition to my book collection.
