This book is a necessity for every young mom!
Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson have done it again. This duo has each written encouraging books on their own, but the combination of their strengths has made their first co-authored book a must read. The encouragement and hope they offer young women is timeless. This book speaks into the heart and lifts spirits of discouragement and depression, giving women a vision of what their home and life can be, lived in the power of the Holy Spirit. There is instruction, Biblical counsel and hope outlined in the pages of this dialogue between a struggling young woman (Sarah Mae) and an older, been-there-done-that woman (Sarah Clarkson).
I thoroughly enjoyed the book and was especially inspired to lay down my ideals in exchange for the reality that God has given me. I am evaluating my circle of friends and realizing that I can’t go this mom road alone. I need to cultivate a support system and allow for some downtime to refresh my spirit. This is a long distance race, this road of mothering and you will find encouragement for your journey in the pages of this book. This book is not filled with theories or a list of do’s and don’ts; it is just two women’s story of how they found their way and cultivated a family culture in keeping with God’s Word to raise a generation of children committed to Christian values to make a difference in our world. You will laugh, cry and find hope as you treasure this volume of wisdom for years to come.
