When I read these words from my favorite author, Sally Clarkson, I knew I had to share them with you here!
"In every culture and in every generation, a mother and child reflect the beauty of God’s design of womanhood. God intentionally crafted babies so that they would be fragile, dependent creatures that would need the love, songs, touch, inspiration and nurture of a mother. When a woman understands that one of the greatest gifts she will ever receive from her creator is to have the opportunity to touch eternity through artfully nurturing the mind, heart and soul of a child, whose life will have implications for all of eternity, her life joins in kingdom purposes with God.
Motherhood is one of the most strategic Biblical callings for women at this time in history. When a mother understands God’s design for her to raise a godly generation in her home, who can love and serve God and pass on righteousness to their own generation, there will be hope for that nation. Moral excellence, faith, emotional health, intellectual excellence and great works of mankind all stem from the home that wisdom builds as women embrace God’s call on their lives."
Sally has a way of writing that always touches my heart! In fact, she seems to be able to express the innermost thoughts of my own heart in ways I never thought to articulate. So many times when reading her writing, it is as if I wrote the words myself, they are so closely intertwined with who I am as a person and a mother. One of my favorite books in the whole world is Seasons of a Mother's Heart! I re-read it every time I need a dose of inspiration and encouragement! Have you read this amazing book?
I am excited to tell you that encouragement for your motherhood journey is now just a click away! Sally has started a new ministry and assembled a team of mothers ready to speak words of encouragement into your heart. Mom Heart Online is devoted to equipping, encouraging, and enabling women to allow God to use them in their homes to raise a godly generation for his glory.
You will have easy access to articles like the one I quoted from above -- A Celebration of Motherhood to equip you for the arduous task of raising up a generation of young adults who will engage the culture and stand up for Jesus Christ, no matter what the cost.
