“My calling as a mother is the same as any other Christian’s: to fulfill God’s will for our lives and to glorify him. This means I am to follow the Lord’s design for my marriage—cleaving to my husband, supporting him, honoring him, loving him as my own flesh. I am to be a careful steward of the world in which I live. I am to seek opportunities to bring God’s message of redemption to others, to make full use of the gifts and talents he has placed in my life to bring him glory and further his kingdom. And I am to delight in him and worship him and praise him in whatever circumstance I find myself.” ~ Sally Clarkson, The Mission of Motherhood
This weekend is Mother's Day! I pray you have a lovely day with your precious families. What a treat it has been to share with you and some of my most inspirational friends nearly every day these past few weeks; thank you for being with us and I hope you're been encouraged to love your children well by walking with them along God's path, discussing His ways, studying His word, and enjoying His world.
I'm so grateful to be able to share one final Launch Week(s) giveaway with you today! In celebration of Mother's Day, we're giving away three books of your choice from this list: The Lifegiving Parent/Experience, The Lifegiving Table/Experience, The Lifegiving Home/Experience, Own Your Life, You Are Loved, or Different!
And I'm also so glad to offer to one winner the newest book from my friend, Kristen Welch: Raising World Changers in a Changing World. I love Kristen's heart for following hard after Jesus, and the way she has brought her family along as she does so. This book tells a bit of that story. About the book: "Almost any parent you asked would tell you that they want their children to be happy, successful adults. But many of us forget (or never knew to begin with) that lasting personal joy is not necessarily found the way the world says it is--through reaching a certain socioeconomic status, having a certain job, buying a certain house, or having a certain amount in one's bank account. In fact, says Kristen Welch, popular blogger and author of Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, personal satisfaction comes not from grabbing onto things but from holding them with an open hand and, very often, giving them away." Find more from Kristen at We Are That Family.
