Product description

A Fresh Vision for Motherhood -Do you long for your home to be life-giving and peaceful?-Is it your desire to pass on a legacy of righteousness to your children?-Do you struggle to balance the duties of motherhood with a loving relationship with your children?-Would you like creative ideas for keeping your child's heart open to you and to the Lord? No calling is greater, nobler, or more fulfilling than that motherhood. Every day, as we nurture our children, mothers influence eternal destiny as no one else can. Tragically, today's culture minimizes the vital importance of a mother's role. By catching a vision of God's original design and allowing it to shape your life, you can rediscover the joy and fulfillment to be found in the strategic role to which God in all his wisdom has called you, for a purpose far greater than you can ever imagine. Discover how understanding God's purpose and design can empower you to be the mother you long to be.

Review quote

"Sally Clarkson has achieved a beautiful balance of biblical teaching and the heart of a mother in "The Mission of Motherhood." She gently takes the reader by the hand and stands with her before the truth of her calling. Readers will be entertained by her personal stories, empowered by God's call to mothers, and encouraged by Sally's teaching."-Vicki Caruana, author of the best-selling "Apples & Chalkdust " and founder of EncourageTeachers.com"In "The Mission of Motherhood, " Sally Clarkson invites the reader into her family and into her heart to see 'mother' in action: teaching, comforting, training, enriching, and blessing. This book elevates the mission of motherhood and sends the reader back to her children 'pumped.' "-Jean Fleming, author of "A Mother's Heart""Sally hasn't one impolite bone in her body. She so politely passes on what is actually a powerful message. Those who seek affirmation of the value of traditional motherhood will find it here wrapped in biblical principles and a certain sympathetic sweetness."-Karen Andreola, author of "A Charlotte Mason Companion"

Flap copy

There is no greater, nobler, or more fulfilling calling than that of motherhood. Every day, as they nurture their children, mothers influence eternal destiny as no one else can. Yet often women are drawn to seek fulfillment outside of God's design, despite their inherent desire to embrace motherhood with their whole hearts. Today's culture minimizes the vital importance of a mother's role. By catching a vision of God's original design and allowing it to shape their lives, mothers can rediscover the joy and fulfillment to be found in the strategic role to which God has called them-for a purpose far greater than they can imagine. In "The Mission of Motherhood, author, speaker, and mother Sally Clarkson closely examines this God-ordained plan for mothers, introduced in the book of Genesis and upheld throughout his Word. Using practical examples, her own personal anecdotes, a challenging vision, and sound scriptural support, Clarkson upholds the traditional, biblical view of God's plan for motherhood-giving mothers exactly the support they need to persevere in cultivating and sharing their hearts for God, for their children, and for their homes.
