"God designed mothers to partner with Him in His eternal work.... It is for the children's sake that we give our lives. We are protecting future generations that they might be strong for the battle of life. We are the real, in-the-flesh, tangible picture of God's loving hands, strong arms of protection, and encouraging words of hope to our children." ~ Sally Clarkson, The Mission Of Motherhood.
As a young woman, someone shared Christ with me in my 10th floor dorm room, while I was at college, wanting to know Him. To understand that God knew me and still loved and accepted me was revolutionary. I was discipled by a sweet young woman who told me that as a growing believer, the Lord wanted me to be available to pass on what I was learning about Him to others, who like me, wanted to know Him, His love and forgiveness and the kingdom principles that He taught.
And so, young and passionate, I immediately gathered my friends and started a Bible study. I loved sharing the word and talking about Him, so eventually I went into missions. I told God I would be His girl. Eventually I got married to Clay, we spent more time in missions and then began having our precious children. God directed us to start a family ministry, because when we read scripture, we saw that children were a blessing, Jesus said, "Woe to the one who caused the least of these little ones to stumble," and we saw that Satan was battling for the souls, consciences, minds and hearts of children who would be the adults in the next generation.
I had so little instruction and support when I was raising my own children, and so I determined that if God blessed our following of what we thought were Biblical principles in our own children and if they responded to Him and to us, that we would spend the rest of our lives seeking to help other parents feel the support, instruction, encouragement and Biblical inspiration about how to raise a godly generation who loved and served God, in and through their own homes.
And that is how Whole Heart Ministries was born. This is why we write our books, do this blog, host conferences, and have leadership trainings in our home. We want to be a part of what the Holy Spirit is doing in the world to build a godly legacy in families and homes for each generation.
We are praying that we can be a part of building an army of women who will start groups, reach out and train and encourage so many millions of women who want to be a godly mom, but who have not been taught how or do not have support systems. So, will you help us?
We are hosting 3 mom's conferences this year to train, inspire, encourage and instruct moms who can come to these conferences. But even if you cannot come to one of these, would you help us get the word out? We have often seen women attend from all over the world, and then return to their own cities and countries to start Mom Heart Groups. So, you can possibly help us reach women who are longing for support, who are in your own spere of influence, that you didn't even know would need this kind of training and conference.
And so, we are offering either $50 in whatever books or tapes or cd's you would like from Whole Heart Ministries, also listed on our side bar, or 1 free ticket to the conference of your choice in California, Colorado or Texas. (We are hoping to be back on the east coast again soon, but for many reasons, we had to limit this season to 3 conferences and the east coast hotel did not work out.)
Below is information about the conference. Would you help us reach other women by putting it on your facebook, your own blog, announce it to your Bible study or support group? We are also hosting Mom Heart Teas at each conference to help moms know how to start a group or Bible study in their own arena. At each conference you will hear stories and testimonies from 10 to 15 moms just like you--their struggles, their ideals, their stories and you will also hear from special speakers to help inspire and encourage you in your own journey as a mom.
