Reviews - What do customers think about The Mission of Motherhood: Touching Your Child's Heart of Eternity?
Some nuggets, but overwhelming and long-winded. Nov 21, 2008
I have read many, many books on mothering and this has been one of my least favorite. There were some good nuggets of information, as well as a few practical and creative ideas for application, but overall the book was overwhelming and long-winded. I felt there was far too much detail (it wasn't an "easy read") and very overwhelming, especially for a younger Christian. By the time one is finished reading this book, it would be very easy to feel like a failure.
Sally's family seems perfect and ultra spiritual. There is no "realness" to this book. No mention of the everyday challenges that mothers face and how it's not always peaches and cream. That we can't always spiritualize everything, put on a smile and say, "Oh, remember our 24 family ways that we memorized children!" to make it all better. I felt at times she was judmental of other families or children, comparing her "properly trained" children to others they've seen act "untrained" while out and about. Of course she doesn't know these families, their children, or what may be going on (maybe that child is just having a bad day? Maybe he's not feeling well?) but is quick to judge them. This disturbed me.
With the exception of the few nuggets I gleaned while reading this book, it wasn't worth the purchase. I would have paid maybe a buck or so for it at a garage sale for the ideas to implement, but that's about it.
A MUST READ FOR MOMS Jun 15, 2008
This book is a must read for all moms. Sally gives biblical, practical advise through scripture and personal stories. She encourages moms throughout every page. As a mom to three children under 5, I found the book refreshing and motivating and it has encouraged me in the day to day of motherhood.
This is a "have to have" title for any Mother. May 21, 2008
I really enjoy this book. It has made marked changes in my life for the hearts of my children. I HIGHLY recomend this book, and anything by Sally Clarkson. It has taken me a while to read just because I want/need to retain all the great information she shares. This book is real. Get it!
Perfect for All Mothers! Don't miss this one! Mar 16, 2008
This book is at the top of my list for must-reads. The author nails it with this book. It is refreshing to read and has been such an encouragement to me. Thank you! Thank you!
Excellent book Mar 7, 2008
I'm a career woman with a doctorate who is now a stay at home mom to 2 boys. After reading Clarkson's book I no longer have any qualms about my decision to stay home. Clarkson also gives excellent suggestions for fun things to experience together as a family.
