Mother’s Day Initiative Helps Ministry Distribute Five Millionth Book

Christian Books For $1 reaching millions through the local church on Mother's Day and Father's Day.

Sandy Tally is excited about Mother’s Day this year. But not because she’s getting flowers or a bottle of perfume – she’s excited over a book. Sandy’s church, Faith Assembly in Orlando, FL, where Sandy is on staff, is handing almost 2000 free books to women in the church as part of the Mission Mother’s Day campaign from Orlando-based Man in the Mirror.

A major success in recent years, Mission Mother’s Day was started to give churches a way to reach out and share Christ’s love and His message with women on Mother’s Day by giving them a free book. Churches throughout the country have distributed over 5,000,000 books as part of Mission Mother’s Day and Project Father’s Day.

Patrick Morley, founder of Man in the Mirror, is amazed at the changes he’s seen since the first book giveaway effort – Project Father’s Day. “When we began the campaign, we had no idea how many men and women would be reached,” he says. “The stories we hear about changed lives are overwhelming”.

David Delk, President of Man in the Mirror, says it’s a cooperative effort. “We’re so pleased with all of our friends who’ve helped make this possible. If it weren’t for the wonderful team at Women of Faith, Thomas Nelson Publishers, and Zondervan, we wouldn’t be able to offer these titles at giveaway prices. God continues to work in ways we never dreamed possible.”

There are five titles offered for Mission Mother’s Day: Irrepressible Hope and Boundless Love by the Women of Faith, Understanding Your Man in the Mirror by Patrick Morley, Loving God by Chuck Colson, and Halftime by Bob Buford. Each of the books are available in cases of 48 books for about $1 each.

For 17 years, Man in the Mirror has focused on reaching men with practical messages of faith, priorities, and values. In the last five years, five million men and women have received a book from a church or a friend through programs like Mission Mother’s Day and Project Father’s Day.
