Marys Journal is a journey of Jesus Christs life, told from the perspective of his mother, Mary, which captures some of the deep, intimate feelings of her heart. The writing of this book has been a spiritual journey for me. I truly feel blessed that I was inspired to write of what Mary must have felt and experienced being the mother of the Savior of the world. With the illustrations I wanted to symbolize that through our Saviors healing hands we are made whole. I hope that as you read this book you will feel His infinite love and atoning sacrifice, and know that after the tribulations and heartaches of this world there is peace and joy, which can only be found through Jesus Christ. Im grateful for the life that Mary led and her worthiness to raise the Son of God. I echo Marys testimony that Jesus Christ lives and loves each one of us. ~Wendy K. Galloway
