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!

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.
Meet Sally through Introduction video Here.
I would like to give away one copy of The Mission of Motherhood to one of my readers (you choose print or digital). If you’d like to enter my giveaway, just let me know in the comment section below. I will announce the winner on Monday when we begin Chapter 1.
