BECOMING A MOTHER OF STRENGTH

Is Your Family a Little Bent Too? Motherhood is one of the hardest jobs on the planet, but one of the most important ones as well. What do you do when your child doesn’t live up to society’s expectations of perfection and instead, gives you gifts beyond measure?

In Heaven Sent and Bent, René shares the story of her life with a house full of imperfect children and grandchildren. This is a book of faith, humor, and inspiration for any mother who has struggled, loved her children fiercely, and laughed through her tears.
