SUMMER 2011 SEMESTER STUDY-
Real Moms, Real Jesus by Jill Savage
What does Jesus know about the peanut-butter-and-jelly life of a mom? Plenty? Jill Savage, found and director of Hearts at Home, introduces the real Jesus to real moms. In chapters that examine key behaviors and decisions Jesus made during His life on earth, Jill brings those lessons right down to the laundry-filled, sticky-finger days every mother knows. Between the chapters are interactive vignettes that turn the concept of the book back around. If the meat of the content is looking at Jesus’ life on earth and understanding how to apply that in our everyday lives, these perspective vignettes are brief, refreshing glimpses starting with our own messy, busy lives. Jill continually reminds the reader that Jesus is not an unattainable deity, but a Friend who understands. Book Cost: $
