I came across Sally Clarkson's writing in 2010. My first daughter was not even a year old. (and now we are almost to #3!)
Her books completely changed my perspective on Motherhood.
I first read Mission of Motherhood and next I read Ministry of Motherhood. I absolutely loved them!
Since then I've read them both twice....... plus I read her blog ITakeJoy.
From her books and writings- I have been encouraged, challenged, and inspired.
I would love to sit here and write every way I have changed from reading these books.... but that would take too long!......... So I just want to leave it at this but emphasized....
ENCOURAGED- CHALLENGED- and INSPIRED
I am so thankful to have these books in my "mom library".....
I have a whole journal filled up from my thoughts, plans, ponderings, prayers, and actions from these two books.
Here are some great quotes from Sally Clarkson that are in the book Desperate and on her blog:
“One of the beautiful graces of a strong woman is the ability to see the true value of her own life and the lives of her children, and to celebrate them every day, as Jesus did.” (What a great reminder that we all need!)
“One of the marks of a godly woman is that she takes responsibility for her soul’s need for joy and delight.” (I read this in my free "Taking Joy to Heart" devotional this morning from subscribing to her website...... It is so good!)
“A wise woman is one who copies wise women.”
“I believe that if moms understood how strategic their roles were in this battle for the hearts and minds of the next generation, they would grow in excitement about this great job God created them to fulfill.” (You are important! You're a mom.. You're kinda a big deal! :)
“Nothing excellent is ever accomplished by being lazy or selfish.” (Pin this quote up where you can see it everyday)
I'm kinda a quote junkie and can get motivated or "fired up" with the slightest quotes...... Here is an updated picture from my Quote Board... It has gotten quite full over the year. I'm constantly adding and taking away from it.
I would love for every mom to get a hold of her writings...... and then we can just sit and chat about them together~! You can get your copy of Desperate Here. ENJOY!!!!!
ps... (I don't receive any financial compensation for promoting these books... I just really and truly believe that they are AWESOME!!!!!!)
