The Blessing of Motherhood: I Prayed For You by Jean Fischer {CHILDREN'S BOOK GIVEAWAY}

Pin It


One of the most important moments in my life was the birth of my son. I prayed day in and day out that God would make me a mother and send me a child to love. Through personal trials and circumstances, I initially wasn't sure if it was in God's plans, but he finally answered my prayers and sent me a wonderful little boy whom I love dearly! When I first read the children's board book, I Prayed for You, I couldn't help think of my own life, my son, and how much I prayed for him.


ABOUT THE BOOK:
Did you know that even before you were born, I prayed for you? Mommies love their babies and pray over them before they are born and for their whole lives. This book will help them share the many ways they have prayed, and continue to pray, over the lives of their precious children.

Mama Bear shares with Baby Bear how much she prayed for her, even before Baby Bear was born. And each and every day, Mama prays and asks God to help Baby Bear grow big and strong, be safe, love God, and be good to others. From before these sweet babies are born, and for every part of their futures, Mama covers them in prayer. Every spread will share a different prayer, and mamas everywhere will resonate with this eternally important message. Baby bears everywhere will fall asleep knowing they are loved and prayed over.

I Prayed For You shows a mother bear with her little cub. As he goes about his days and reaches milestones in his life, mama continues to thank God and pray for her child.

"Thank you so much for each little blessing.
Today we are grateful for by-myself dressing!"

The illustrations by Frank Endersby are delightful – the kind that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Each page is filled with beautiful colors as we see mother watch her cub grow.


I prayed so much to become a mother and now that I am, the praying definitely doesn't stop. In fact, there are even more and more things to pray for such as our children's safety, good health, kindness, and the list goes on and on. Of course, I'm also always thanking God for this wonderful blessing he gave me. I Prayed For You touched me, emotionally, and my son absolutely adores it. I highly recommend this sweet story to any parent or soon-to-be parent out there.

I'm also really happy to announce that one Our Everyday Harvest reader will win their very own copy of I Prayed For You by Jean Fischer!

This story hits close to home. I have suffered from infertility for 11 years now. In the process my two cousins came into my life as my own. I prayed for them and I prayed for my own children to love unconditionally. This is a beautiful story I would like to share with them.

Thank you for sharing such a personal story, Adrien. I am so sorry to hear about your infertility struggles. God always has an interesting way of making things work out. It looks like he has blessed you in being able to care for your cousins as your own. This sounds like a book you would all truly enjoy!
