Get in on True Christian Motherhood

At the Relevant Conference, I’ll be joining June Fuentes and Shelley Noonan for a session on Homeschooling + Blogging. I’m really looking forward to meeting both women and working by their sides. (I’ll be the girl furiously scribbling notes even though I’m supposed to be adding my 2 cents!) For now, I thought I’d let you know about June’s recent eBook, True Christian Motherhood. It’s HUGE. I mean, pages and pages full of her insights and encouragement for mothers. It’s also a best-seller. And I can see why: with so much encouragement it is bound to meet each mother in her particular momentary struggles. For me, the chapter entitled “The Exhausted Mom” came in handy this week when I just about called it quits… just ‘cuz I’m so so tired. This excerpt was like gold to me:

“… sometimes half the battle is in our minds. We think negatively and that wears us out. We don’t think like Christians and quickly lose the battle before the day even begins. Bitterness and complaining rule us, instead of thankfulness and contentedness. The mind is a powerful thing–if we feel defeated, we will become defeated. People can destroy themselves by merely thinking negatively and not looking to the hope that Christ offers. It has been reported that people have actually made themselves sick and die earlier from worries and stress. A Christian mother
would be wise to guard against this kind of thinking and learn how to refute negative thinking with the Word of God. So when you are tired and weary be sure to lean on the Lord for
strength and wisdom:

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even
youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those
who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like
eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” –
Isaiah 40:29-31

This is a fantastic time to purchase and read the eBook because women from all over are joining the new FB discussion group – and you are invited! I hope that you find just the right words of encouragement!
