I wanted to post this earlier, but my connection has been on and off (more off than on) all day. I hope I can get this posted tonight!
About The Book
I am delighted to host Margaret McSweeney on a blog tour for her book, A Mother’s Heart Knows. This beautiful little book has a wonderful message and precious pictures in soft muted colors. A touching gift for a special mother in your life for Mother’s Day or any day.
One thing that impressed me is that all royalty proceeds from this book goes to WINGS (Women in Need Growing Stronger) and to a student missionary scholarship fund. WINGS is a non-profit organization that shelters women and children who are victims of domestic violence as well as offers transitional housing and programs. As a woman who was a victim of domestic abuse in my first marriage, this meant a lot to me.
You can purchase the book here.
