I vividly remember the days when my three sons were
little. I loved being a mom, but there were days when
exhaustion led to discouragement and a feeling of
insignificance. I certainly didn’t feel as if my tasks as a
mom were instruments of greatness for God. How
wonderful to realize that God can take something as
ordinary as packing a lunch, baking a pan of bread, or
making a basket and use it for His glory. That is the
concept for Mothers Who Made a Difference.
Mothers Who Made a Difference contains poignant
stories about Bible mothers along with modern
applications that show the relevance of those Bible stories
to moms’ lives today. The stories provide examples of
how everyday decisions can influence the lives of our
children—and future generations—in life-changing and
Each of the stories will remind weary moms of the
importance God places on mothers, and encourage and
challenge them as they realize that God can use even the
mundane tasks of motherhood in extraordinary ways.
After all, because a mother did something ordinary—
because she packed a lunch with five loaves and two
fish—her child was part of a miracle.
From the back cover of Keepsake Recipes:
What would be the perfect gift to welcome my new
daughter-in-law, Laurel Leidy Cox, to our family? My
love for cooking led me to consider compiling recipes
for her since "the way to a man's heart," we're told,
comes from a great meal placed on the table. Our
friends and family contributed over 600 time-tested
recipes, along with marriage advice for the newlyweds,
tips for the beginning cook, and memories of family
times and favorite family meals. The result is this
unique cookbook, Keepsake Recipes from Family &
Friends. These recipes and stories came from the heart,
so I hope my gift touches Laurel's heart. Now I'd like
to share with you, hoping your meal times will become
favorite memory times.
Keepsake Recipes from Family & Friends can only be ordered from me. The cookbooks are
$20.00 per book (includes tax where applicable) and shipping is $5.00 per book. The shipping

Respect for the power of encouraging words! This
touching collection of over 40 true stories—from
Christian writers, educators, songwriters, executives,
Hollywood producers, and others—will remind you that
little words can make a BIG difference!
Words can inspire, encourage, and convey love. They
can poke and prod and compel to action. Or they can
wound, discourage, and criticize. And what is said or
not said in the most mundane moment can change a
life…forever. That's the message of Simple Little Words.
