It is not hard to begin to look at raising your children as a daily chore. After the initial joy of the birth, parents quickly fall into a routine of juggling various activities and that includes their children. It is not because they don’t love them. Every day of a mother’s life provides ample opportunities for her to share her knowledge with her kids. But that can get lost within work, household chores, homework and caring for other needs of a child.
The Ministry of Motherhood: Following Christ’s Example in Reaching the Hearts of our Children asks moms to see their lives through the eyes of Christ when it comes to influencing their kids.
The Ministry of Motherhood asks moms to view their status as “mother” as an assignment from God. In that light, moms can focus their energy to bring all of
their heart and soul to this task. The author, Sally Clarkson asks moms to use
Jesus’ teachings as the basis for their values they pass on to children. Every
moment is a time for teaching and reflecting on how to build character in their
children and bring a new perspective to the title of “mother.” Great as a gift
for first time mothers or someone that you know could use a little encouragement in the area of motherhood.
