"Dawn Camp has gathered a bouquet of voices with one thing in
common: They are mothers who love their daughters. The result is a
fragrant collection of stories and letters that celebrate the
mother-daughter dance—that relationship which brings with it every
emotion imaginable and even a few that aren't. Read this book
slowly. Savor the pages. Remember days past. Hope for days yet to
come. And for all of it, give thanks."
—John Blase, author of The Jubilee and Know When to Hold 'Em
"It often feels like mothers are sorted into boxes:
stay-at-home, working, single, boy-mom, girl-mom, mom of multiples,
and the like. But this collection of stories about motherhood does
the complicated work of celebrating our differences while
highlighting the similarities we all share. Rather than divide us
up or pit us against each other, Dawn Camp has gathered all kinds
of moms together to share their stories and their hearts. With Love, Mom will encourage anyone who has borne a child
or been a child, anyone who has mothered or been mothered, anyone
who longs to give and receive the love of a mom."
—Mary Carver, coauthor of Choose Joy
"A collection of wisdom and courage, heart and healing, love and
honor...With Love, Mom is soul food for anyone
who has ever called herself mom and for any girl who has ever loved
and been loved by her mother."
—Danielle Smith, author of Mom, Incorporated
"She's done it again! In her fourth heartwarming story
collection, With Love, Mom, gifted author Dawn
Camp has gathered some of the finest Christian authors who share
openly about the intimate dance of mother-daughter relationships.
These transparent 'pas de deux' stories pulse with delight, joy,
doubts, challenges, humility, inspiration, and hope. Surprisingly,
mothers often admit to learning intricate new dance steps from
their daughters. But unquestionably each relationship flourishes
with give and take, leading and listening. And always evident
beneath each mother-daughter story beats the rhythm of God's love.
This legacy book is a perfect gift for Mother's Day and any
occasion. It will be repeatedly read and passed down through the
generations from mother to daughter. I highly recommend it."
—Lynn D. Morrissey, author of Love Letters to God and Treasures of a Woman's Heart

relationships are all about. She includes real-life stories that

transforms ordinary stories of life into extraordinary testimonies
