The Ministry of Motherhood (Sally Clarkson)

$15.99 $12.50

The long awaited follow-up to Mrs. Clarkson’s rich The Mission of Motherhood, this volume covers her thoughts on passing on to our children a Biblical understanding of grace, faith, purpose in life, patience in their training, and the centrality of loving service to others.

A mother’s day is packed with a multitude of tasks that require energy and time: preparing meals, washing clothes, straightening and cleaning the house, and caring for children. These jobs are all critical and necessary. But in the daily routine of providing for child’s physical, emotional, and social needs, vital opportunities for spiritual nurturing and training can be overlooked. Learn from Sally Clarkson how to keep the demands of life from forcing your priorities to take a back seat, and how to focus your energy on what matters most. She helps us to make life’s mundane and nitty-gritty moments work for you, not against you; to incorporate character-building as a natural part of life.

About the Author

From working on college campuses, to sharing the Gospel behind the Iron Curtain as a missionary,  traveling around the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia to speak on discipleship, Sally Clarkson has tenaciously sought after God’s kingdom, and has used her ministry to encourage others to do the same. From her best-selling books such as Own Your LifeDesperate (with Sarah Mae), and her latest, The Lifegiving Home, Sally has shared from her heart and home about the value of motherhood and the potential for home to cultivate life, love, and faith. In 1995, She and her husband Clay founded Whole Heart Ministries, which has encouraged thousands of families around the world in discipling their children.

More Endorsements

“Here we have a book to substantiate that the ministry of motherhood and the Great Commission are not mutually exclusive, but a complement and catalyst to each other! With an extraordinary blend of humility, challenge, and encouragement, Sally gives an exalted vision to our calling and stewardship as mothers.”
–Debby Thompson, wife and mother with 30 years of ministry leadership, currently with Campus Crusade for Christ, Eastern Europe and Russia

“If you feel like a hamster on a wheel–you’re running, but you’re not getting anywhere–then The Ministry of Motherhood is for you! Sally Clarkson inspires us to step off that wheel and parent with purpose, not by adding something else to our hectic schedules but by bringing God into everything we do. With down-to-earth, practical examples, she shows us how we, too, can build disciples as we reach our children’s hearts. A very encouraging and easy-to-read book!”
–Sheila Wray Gregoire, author of To Love, Honor, and Vacuum
