Mary is a remarkable example of a quiet, resilient faith in the face of adversity--from the angel's first announcement of her pregnancy to the death and resurrection of her son. She was witness to our Lord and Savior in a special way, and modern-day moms can learn valuable lessons from her life.

— Sarah Jakes

In Dear Mary, Sarah Jakes explores biblical stories about Mary--as well as stories from her own life--to better understand what living for Christ can look like today and how to model that for your children. Maybe you struggle to trust God's will for your life. Or perhaps you have fears and insecurities that keep you from realizing the joy God wants for you. Through the example of Mary, discover the freedom that only true faith can bring, and get a fresh perspective on the love and compassion.
