Your Mission Field

     One of my favorite authors is Sally Clarkson.  Mrs. Clarkson’s books always encourage me, and I am very thankful for the things I have learned from her over the years.  I’ve often said, and it’s true, that Educating the Wholehearted Child, which she co-authored with her husband, Clay, was the turning point in our homeschool journey. 
     I have just finished reading Sally Clarkson’s The Mission of Motherhood: Touching Your Child’s Heart for Eternity and it was wonderful!  In this book, Mrs. Clarkson gives moms a true understanding of their calling as mothers and reminds us that our children really are our most important mission field.  No one can better meet the needs of our children, whether physical, emotional or spiritual, better than we can.  Her lovely writing style feels like a gentle conversation with a good friend over a cup of tea.  She shares freely from her experiences with her own four children, the good times as well as the rough spots.  Each brief chapter ends with a handful of pertinent Scripture references and a few questions for each verse, directing us to what God’s Word has to say, followed by a few practical suggestions for applying the ideas from the chapters to your own life. 
     I highly recommend any of Mrs. Clarkson’s fine books.  If you ever have the opportunity of hearing her speak in person, grab it!  (I’m still hoping for that opportunity some day.)
