A hope chest. What is it and what should be placed inside? Are they too old-fashioned for today's modern families?
These questions and many more are answered in this wonderfully insightful book. Written by a mother of seven, Rebekah Wilson covers areas of the hope chest most people have never before considered. Using excerpts from by-gone era's, quotes from today's busy mothers and the authors research and enthusiasm for the topic, the author has provided her readers with encouragement, insight and many areas for heartfelt consideration.
Many people have heard of the hope chest, but few know the unique value of creating one.

Whether the items are handmade or specially purchased, or whether they are family heirlooms or a childhood treasure, each item provides a unique legacy for the owner.
