Book Overview

There's no such thing as just a mom.

Despite the routine tasks and mundane to-do lists, motherhood is anything but insignificant. God has designed motherhood as part of his greater plan to draw people to himself--instilling all women, whether called to traditional mothering or not, with an eternal purpose in nurturing others.

In this book, Gloria Furman searches the Scriptures for the mission of God in motherhood. She opens our eyes to God's life-giving promises--promises intended to empower each and every woman as she makes disciples in her home, in her neighborhood, and around the world.

   I get it...but it wasn't what I expected
I thought that this study would be about my own children being mothered. Instead, it was geared towards all women having the ability to be mothers to all children. It was an okay study, but it did not quite fit what I expected from the title and the writing. It would be better for moms of older children, perhaps it would be a mom of a toddler, but it did not fit for me.

   Wouldn't recommend this book
I bought this book after reading a great book by Rosaria Butterfield called The Gospels comes with a house key. I believe in it, she says she gives this book to every woman she knows who has a baby. The second half of the book is a prophecary of the Old Testament. I agree with the other reviewers that said the title is misleading. It is not all about the daily ministry of motherhood. The second half of the book appears like a hodge podge of spirituals with an occasional practical point thrown in. It is a very disappointing book.

   EVERY Christian mother needs to read this
The first half is the foundation of basic Catholic theology, setting the stage for Part 2, which really digs into missional mothering. It is not just mothering children, it's discipleship for any woman and how our nurturing nature was designed by Jesus to be used in motherhood and ministry by Jesus. Gloria says so well. It is evident that the spirit has inspired and woven this work together.

   Title and description seem a bit misleading... but this book is full of TRUTH
This is a beautifully written book and packed with truth! However, I agree with other reviewers that the title of the book and perhaps even the cover artwork don 't exactly match the content. I thought I was expecting a book about being in the beautiful and messy trenches of motherhood, rather than a theological overview of the old testament. While at times it has been a bit dry, I think that if I had known what to expect going into it, I would have appreciated it much more in the moment. Overall, this book may not be what you thought you needed, but it could be just what you thought. P.S. : If you're looking for Christ-filled mama encouragement that is an easier read and less heavy on theology, check out the book Mom Enough.

   A Look Into Christ Centered Mothering
Gloria Furman is extremely wise and insightful and shares her God-given gifts to encourage and point mother's attentions to Him. This book is great for any woman in any mothering capacity, raising teenagers, or even if you have no children at home, but you have several other children or women in your life! I gave it a four because it was a little difficult to follow at times, but overall, there is a lot of good stuff and things to reflect on and learn. The book is not what I expected originally, but it exceeded my expectations in a good way, and I was challenged and encouraged by this book! A few friends and I took their advice at the beginning of the book and discussed it with some scones. This book could stand alone, but is so great with supplementary discussion among friends.

   Encouraging and convicting
The call to biological motherhood steps outside the bounds of missionary mothering and spurs us to not only nurture our children, but also those we interact with daily. Great read!
