Saturday’s Discounted Kindle Deals: Featured eBook and Mother Day Finds

“I enjoyed this story about Wren, the second princess in the Counterfeit Princess Series. It’s a good adventure read, but it also reflects the ups and downs of feisty independence and heartfelt love. I saw myself in Wren at times, and I loved the charming way Sherri Schoenborn Murray describes the ponderings of Wren’s heart. The scenes are memorable, and the twists unexpected. I hope more books come in this series, so I can root more princesses on in their adventures and life lessons.” From Katy Kauffman on Amazon

The Viola Girl (Counterfeit Princess Series Book 2)

Sherri Schoenborn Murray

She plays from memory just like her sister. Her memories.

Alone, and only fifteen, she has many lessons to learn, including one that costs Wren her heart. This prodigal daughter story is filled with problems, prayers, and plenty of romance. It can be read as a standalone, but the author recommends reading The Piano Girl first.

The Magic of Motherhood: The Good Stuff, the Hard Stuff, and Everything In Between

Ashlee Gadd

The Magic of Motherhood celebrates your life as a mom—the good stuff, the hard stuff, and everything in between.

From the writers behind the popular blog Coffee + Crumbs comes a beautiful new book to remind you of your identity, both as a woman and as a mother.

Motherhood can often feel overwhelming and isolating. You find your feelings swinging between joy and uncertainty, intense love and anxiety, laughter and tears. Through it all, you constantly ask yourself, “Am I the only one who feels this way?” The Magic of Motherhood will reassure you that you’re not alone. Full of encouragement, humor, and wisdom that will speak to you right where you are, The Magic of Motherhood is like a long-overdue coffee date with your best girlfriend.

In this book you’ll find heartwarming essays about identity, adoption, body image, miscarriage, friendship, faith, infertility, and more. The Magic of Motherhood is a curated collection of honest stories that weave together the love, joy, and magnificent heartache of motherhood. Instead of offering advice, the writers offer something even better: their hearts.

The Magic of Motherhood is a love letter to mothers everywhere; it’s a story about the magic that happens in between calm and chaos, the joy that can be found in both beauty and mess, and the valuable lessons we learn about ourselves in between cups of reheated coffee and kitchen tables covered in crumbs.

Hoodwinked: Ten Myths Moms Believe and Why We All Need To Knock It Off

Hoodwinked: Ten Myths Moms Believe and Why We All Need To Knock It Off

Karen Ehman

According to Karen Ehman, popular author and speaker with Proverbs 31 Ministries, and Ruth Schwenk, of www.thebettermom.com, it’s time to stop the “Mommy Wars.”

Today’s wives and mothers have been hoodwinked; convinced that serving their family is a subservient and antiquated role. Because of culture, family, friends, or lack of biblical teaching, many moms miss how valuable and powerful their calling really is. Some have bought into the pressure to be “Supermom.” Others have believed the myth that they can “do it all” and do it perfectly.

This six-session video-based study will encourage and inspire women to embrace their roles as mothers wholeheartedly yet realistically, whether they work outside the home, have a home business, or are stay-at-home moms. Mothers will find a fresh new vision for an age-old calling as they tackle the challenges and embrace the blessings of motherhood.

Sessions include:

Build Bridges, Not Fences: When Others Mother Differently
Mothering Matters: Seeing the Hard Years as the Heart Years
At the Top of the Tightrope: When You Try to Do It All
Pressing the Pause Button: Taking Your Schedule from Racing to Rest
In Armor of Their Own: On Revealing the Picture God’s Painting
Raising Children on Your Knees: When Your Child Makes a Bad Choice

The Perfect Mom

The Perfect Mom

Michelle Wilson

“A book for every mother who’s felt they weren’t enough. You are more than enough. You are perfect.” Michelle

Do you ever try to be the perfect mother, only to end up feeling like the worst mother ever?

I have.

When I was young, I thought my mother was perfect. Imagine my devastation when I realized she was an imperfect person like the rest of us. When I became a mother myself, I was determined to be the perfect mom for my kids. However, many times the opposite happened and I felt like the worst mother ever. Here I share six such occasions where my worst-mother-ever moments really shine (like that time my friend’s child asked for a salad for lunch and mine was eating cereal off the floor, or the time my daughter cut her hair into a half-mullet when I wasn’t home).

But, the truth is, even though we are not perfect women, we truly are the perfect moms for our kids. Through learning to laugh at ourselves, recognizing moments of perfection, not comparing ourselves to others, seeing God’s hand in our lives, and accepting the reality that isn’t only our strengths that make us good mothers, but our weaknesses as well, we can truly come to believe that we are the perfect moms for our kids. And, most likely, our own moms, imperfections and all, are perfect for us, too.

The Passionate Mom: Dare to Parent in Today's World

The Passionate Mom: Dare to Parent in Today’s World

Susan Merrill

Motherhood is full of uncertainty. What do my children really need? Why are they doing that? Is this normal? What can I do to help them? How can I know for certain that I am doing this right?

The logistics are easy. Anybody can do laundry and carpool. But what makes a mother the best mom she can be?

It’s not better scheduling. Or more activities. Or less.

It is passion—the passion to teach, protect, study, and prepare her children for the future.

Great, but how?

Susan Merrill, the mother of five incredibly different children, has asked that question countless times. And she has read countless answers specific to a certain child’s temperament, age, or situation. But nothing she read offered an overall approach to parenting that would enable her to say with confidence, “I am doing this right.” She never guessed she would find a foundational plan—a reliable, universal parenting approach in the Old Testament book of Nehemiah.
In The Passionate Mom, Susan takes you on a journey through Nehemiah and into the heart of parenting. Her stories and confessions in every chapter reveal what she has learned: no mom can control her child’s future, but every mom can parent well. There is a plan—a roadmap for how a passionate mom can parent almost any child, confidently.

“…This book reaches mothers like me at both the heart level and the head level, showing us how to guide our children passionately and practically…”
–Shaunti Feldhahn, social researcher, national speaker and best-selling author of “For Women Only”

“Being a mother is the greatest joy of my life. My friend Susan Merrill regularly inspires me in my role as a Mother. In her book, she will inspire you!”
–Denise Jonas, Mother of Kevin, Joe, Nick and Frankie Jonas

“Every mother’s goal is to see her children fully blossom. In ‘The Passionate Mom’ Susan Merrill not only outlines the qualities women need to be successful moms, but also lays out a practical, biblical plan to help develop those qualities. She provides sound advice to help in the difficult task of raising children.” –Lauren and Tony Dungy

Forever Friday: A Novel

Forever Friday: A Novel

Timothy Lewis

Every Friday, a postcard.
Every Friday, a love poem.
Every Friday for sixty years.

Adam Colby is just doing his job, sorting through the unsold Alexander belongings after the estate sale. He is unprepared for what he finds in an old photo album, overlooked by the bargain hounds and treasure hunters—six decades of postcards and poems from Gabe Alexander to his wife, Pearl. The mystery of the Alexanders’ love entices Adam, a man unhinged by divorce and puzzled by the depth of commitment that he finds in the unabashedly romantic cards.

Forever Friday invites you to travel back in time to the early twentieth century Texas Coastal Bend where a young couple—Gabe and Pearl Alexander—are swept up in a miraculous love. As the heartwarming, pulse-quickening story of their relationship develops through Gabe’s poems, the Alexanders reveal a new way to consider what it means to be truly devoted to each other. Could the secrets of their love affair, laid to rest twenty years ago, hold the key to one man’s future?

Butterfly Palace

Butterfly Palace

Colleen Coble

Elegance and wealth. Privilege and politics. The extravagance of the Butterfly Palace
overwhelmed Lily’s senses and nearly smothered her painful memories. She pushed
away her misgivings . . . She was perfectly safe in this huge house.

Austin, Texas—1904: Abandoned by the love of her life and still mourning the loss of
her mother, Lily Donaldson has turned her back on the pain and come to Austin
for a fresh start, working for the Marshall family as a kitchen maid in their
luxurious mansion, the Butterfly Palace. The tasks before her are legion, and her
mistress less than pleasant, but at least Lily’s new life will be, if nothing
else, distracting.

But one night, while serving at a dinner party, Lily recognizes the man who abandoned
her, Andy, her liaison from the livery stable, the blacksmith’s son . . .
sitting among the distinguished guests. Though he recognizes her, Andy does not
acknowledge her aloud, and Lily is left reeling, flabbergasted, and
irate.

But before she can get an explanation, the path of the Servant Girl Killer swerves
very close to the Butterfly Palace, sowing terror among the maids. Having come
to Austin to start anew, Lily suddenly feels trapped in a spider web. How can
she know who to trust in a house where lies come dressed in fine suits and
deceit in silk gowns the colors of butterfly wings?
