Have you ever been given a book, from someone you love, that makes that book ALL THE MORE special?
A book given in love and gifted in thoughtfulness?
A book that you treasure not just because the content is great, and the writing is lovely, and the cover is enticing, but because the giver is someone who took the time to love you THROUGH this book?
Well, this month’s give-away is THAT kind of book!
An absolute surprise of a gift, my brother (who also loves all things books, and reading, and theology, and Jesus) gifted this book to me for Mother’s Day, and I have absolutely devoured it!
And because I loved it, and because I love him, I wanted to love a few other people with this book!
So what book am I giving away this month?
I am giving away three copies of Missional Motherhood: The Everyday Ministry of Motherhood in the Grand Plan of God by Gloria Furman.
And why am I giving away this book?
One reason and one reason only.
As moms, it’s really easy to get caught up in the day-to-day living and loving of our children that we forget, neglect, and get side-tracked from the HOLY WHO…the one who not only informs our mission as followers of Jesus, but also fuels our mission as mothers. This book does a beautiful job of reminding us of WHOSE we are, of WHOSE story we are in, and of WHOSE mission we are truly fulfilling in the everyday journey of mothering.
It’s good, friends; it’s REAL good.
So what are a few of my favorite line(s) from this book?
“The gospel is the good news of missional motherhood. No other news can compare. No health craze, no safety tips, no school curricula, no positive pregnancy test, no social club, no bargain purchase, and no ministry leader can deliver you from the gravest problem you have–your sin. Jesus Christ is the end of righteousness for all moms who believe, and His person and work is also the message we communicate.”
“The missional vision of motherhood helps correct our nearsighted mothering. It propels us to bank on the cruciform victory of Jesus and look forward to receiving future grace because of what He did.”
So how can you win this book?
