I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but my favorite motherhood book is The Mission of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson. I remember when I first read it, by the end of the Chapter 1 my eyes were all misty.
Why? Because of Sally’s desire to mentor. Most parenting books I’d read up to that point were about “managing” your children, but this book was different. Sally wanted to help us learn how to “be” mothers.
For this mama who never knew her mama and felt utterly clueless going into the most important job of her life, I practically jumped up and down raising my hand saying, me! me! I want that!
And Sally didn’t disappoint. Not only have her books challenged, taught and inspired me, but I’ve also had the privilege of getting to know Sally recently and she is truly one of those amazing and rare women deeply passionate about investing in the lives of others.
She writes books, blog posts, hosts conferences and even has retreats in her own home simply because she wants to mentor young mothers so that they can powerfully impact the next generation for God.
A New Place For Encouragment and Inspiration
I’m so excited to tell you that Sally has started a new site called MomHeart Online. It is a community of moms who are dedicated to truly seeing motherhood as their mission and ministry. I’m incredibly honored to be part of the team of writers, including Sarah Mae, Ruth, Ann, Courtney and several others who will share our stories there. What I love about this new blog is that it will be a mixture of Sally’s wisdom, she’s raised 4 amazing children, and the “in the trench” experiences of the rest of the writing team.
I hope you’ll check out MomHeart Online and join us there to learn, encourage and grow.
