Mary, Our Spiritual Mother: Journaling with Jesus, Series II by Cynthia Brewer
After using many “Christian-themed” journals, I began to yearn for one that focused more on Jesus, His Mother, and the teachings He taught, particularly the sacraments He had introduced to His apostles. I couldn’t find one, so I decided to create my own series of journals.
Mary, Our Spiritual Mother is a 6” x 9” non-dated, lined devotional journal with 60 Bible verses focused on the Virgin Mary. The 60 verses repeat two times for a total of 193 pages. The Bible verses chosen for “Mary, Our Spiritual Mother” journal reflect on the Blessed Mother by telling of her actions, repeating her own words, and by showing ‘types’ of the Virgin Mary in the Old Testament and the Book of Revelation. The journal comes in four cover choices.
It can be used as a guided prayer journal by meditating upon and responding to each of the 60 Marian verses or it can be used simply as a personal journal with beautiful Bible verses to enjoy.
Five years after her husband’s death, Ella has a new life, a new career, and a new town. Hartwell, Maine is the perfect place for her to rebuild, and she can see herself happily delivering babies now that she won’t be having a family of her own.

Piper is seven months pregnant, and her fiancé is deployed overseas, so Ella knows this patient is going to require special attention. When Piper takes it into her head to set up her father and her midwife, can even a new baby bring together a woman who’s seen romance at its best, and a man who has only experienced love at its worst?
The Health Care Heroes series highlights different health care workers, each in their own sweet/clean romance! Every book stands alone so you can jump anywhere into the series and read them in any order you like.
