Mission of Motherhood Book Study

I wanted to share this wonderful book study on Christian mothering through my daughter Anna’s blog.  She will be posting every Monday on her Mothering Monday series.  I hope that you can join us in our discussions.  It looks to be a very enlightening book on the purpose of God’s design in our calling as mothers through God’s word.

“The Mission of Motherhood” Discussion Group Kick-off! 


Welcome, friends!

I’m so excited to be able to study through the book The Mission of Motherhood with all of you! Do you have your copy yet? If not, don’t worry! You still have a bit of time. We’ll be starting Chapter 1 next Monday, October 7, 2013.

I plan to write a post every Monday, sharing my thoughts on the chapter that everyone has read. Then, more importantly, I will invite each of you to answer at least one study question of your choice from the chapter. Of course, you are welcome to share your insights and/or favorite quotes from the chapter, too.

Today, I’d love for each of you who plan to study the book with me to introduce yourself in the comment section below.

Please help us to get to know each other a bit by sharing your name (first name only is OK), how many children you have (and whether they’re in your home still or grown), what you hope to glean from the book and anything else you want us to know about you!

If you are not planning to purchase the book, I hope that you feel welcome to join us, too!

Do you know a new mom or one who could use some encouragement in their mission? Then please invite them to join us in this book study!

Meet Sally

I want to share a short video of Sally introducing her own online Mission of Motherhood Book club (from back in 2012) so you can have her voice in mind as you’re reading through the book. As we study through the book, I will be sharing more of Sally’s videos that go along with each chapter.
