The pages are warn and marked with underlines, smiley faces, brackets and stars. Notes written as reminders float in the margins. Half of the pages bear the water, well coffee marked wrinkles from mornings gathered around breakfast with other women pouring over scripture and the guidance of a Godly woman, Sally Clarkson.
This book is for moms-to-be, moms with children still at home…and even empty-nester moms.
Mission of Motherhood is not just another book to read about what to expect during child-rearing years. Sally Clarkson has incorporated Biblical questions and application ideas at the end of each chapter that will encourage you in your walk with the Lord as a mother and a woman. The scriptures are the backbone of why Clay and Sally parent the way they do and the Truth that compels Sally to share what she has learned from the Lord over the years. Her love for the Lord is authentic and true.
Here's a little about the book from the Publisher:
The Mission of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson: A Fresh Vision for Motherhood
-Do you long for your home to be life-giving and peaceful? -Is it your desire to pass on a legacy of righteousness to your children? -Do you struggle to balance the duties of motherhood with a loving relationship with your children? -Would you like creative ideas for keeping your child’s heart open to you and to the Lord?
No calling is greater, nobler, or more fulfilling than that motherhood. Every day, as we nurture our children, mothers influence eternal destiny as no one else can. Tragically, today’s culture minimizes the vital importance of a mother’s role. By catching a vision of God’s original design and allowing it to shape your life, you can rediscover the joy and fulfillment to be found in the strategic role to which God in all his wisdom has called you, for a purpose far greater than you can ever imagine.
Discover how understanding God’s purpose and design can empower you to be the mother you long to be.
I recommended this book to all mom in ALL stages of motherhood, and I truly believe that. I have lead this book/Bible study in my home many years and I see the value it has for all motherhood. If you don’t have children yet, it will prepare your heart and mind for the sweet years to come.

For the empty-nesters…You are a key generation! You have the mighty calling on your lives to be the Titus 2 women and help the young moms in their journey…as you have already tread the miles. Mission of Motherhood is a GREAT book to use as you lead young mothers in a Bible study.
