If you haven’t read up on what this book is all about, check out my main page. You can also sign up there for updates on the progress of our project!

The Mom Quilt is an eBook compiled by PaulaBecky Mansfield and Jodi Durr to benefit the Mercy House in Kenya, founded by Kristen Welch.

Imagine Chicken Soup for the Soul, but better! Over 60 wonderful moms and bloggers contributed to make this eBook, each sharing a special story from their heart about life as mom.

In addition to being encouraged yourself by this book, 100% of the money from purchases of the book will be going towards building a water well in Kenya on the Mercy House property. Currently, water is trucked in from miles away. It is costly in time and money and we would love to take away that stress and expense from the ministry so they are freed up to focus in other areas.

The book price is $9.99. However, all donations over that amount are gladly accepted! This is such a special project for SO many different reasons. I hope that you will be inspired by the book, its contents and the reason behind its making.
