"THE MOTHER GOD MADE ME TO BE tugs at the reader's heart with vivid details of the joy of motherhood, the struggles of romance, and the disappointments of life. Yet, with descriptive scenes, the author draws the reader in to savor the journey from pain to a pleasant chapter of restoration, of freedom and acceptance. Young Moms will find this story to be a sweet reminder of God's provision. And in the midst of the challenges of motherhood, we see His redeeming love shine through."--Janet Perez Eckles, author of Simply Salsa: Dancing Without Fear at God's Fiesta
