    About the book

    This book is for all the mothers out there who are trying hard to leave their mark in this world. We strive to set the perfect footprint in the sand, wishing the waves will never wash it away. But what we need to start doing is making this life become a seal of love on the hearts of everyone we meet and allowing our choices and experiences to hum a melody of gratitude to our Maker. Motherhood comes with seemingly unbearable struggles, but God allows flowers to blossom from their wreckage.

    Reviews

    “This is a deeply moving account—confronting and yet comforting. Part autobiographical, part devotional, this book is an authentic journey through the joys, struggles, and perplexity of motherhood. It explores the counterintuitive beauty of not hiding from pain in coming face to face with the reality and rawness of being a mother. We too often shy away from our brokenness, when Christianity has, from the very beginning, been about Christ embracing and transforming brokenness.”
    Daniel Fanous, St Cyril’s Coptic Orthodox Theological College

    “This book drew me right in with its first words. So many of us as parents wonder if we are fulfilling God’s purpose for our lives. Mirette’s words spoke to my mama heart. Her struggles were mine, too, and each one of her stories offers hope, inspiration, and an invitation to look up toward God for our comfort and fulfillment.”
    Phoebe Farag Mikhail, author of Putting Joy into Practice: Seven Ways to Lift Your Spirit from the Early Church
