If you are struggling with staying at home with your children because the task seems too small of a job for your level of intelligence or you don't see the value of your job as a mother, I recommend this book. Even though this book was originally written in the seventies it speaks truth that hasn't changed: raising children involves more than feeding, changing diapers and providing shelter. In the words of the author, "If you are a mother, you have a calling from God. God entrusts into your care a life, a future, a piece of what the world will become. You become part of the solution or part of the problem that faces us today." Some of the chapters include" A Call to Motherhood" where the author discusses being an all there mother. "A Vision for the Task" reminds us that we are investing in eternity when we devote time to our children as they are our mission field. Another chapter titled "What Values are Really Important" asks the question "Are we achieving goals and receiving accolades only to later regret that we chose to be successful in the wrong areas?" The author challenges the reader in ways that can alter the path of life for you and your children. This is a book that I will read again and again and recommend to other moms. 2) This ismy favorite book i have read as a mom - ByJeff Oon I never write reviews (my husband does, but this is a first for me), but feel this book is worth one. This is hands down my favorite book i have read as a mom. I started reading it at a time I felt discouraged - coming out of a hard pregnancy with a newborn and strong willed 18 month old. I finished the book feeling encouraged and inspired at the gift of being a mom. It helped alter my perspective and reminded me why I believe this is the most important job I'll have in life. If you are feeling tired and discouraged as a mom, you might find new motivation and hope with this book. It's worth the read as it gives an eternal perspective of what can feel mundane in motherhood.
