God's Wisdom for Mothers

Author: Jack Countryman
Paperback: 208 pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson

ISBN-10: 1404189564

Book Description:

The crown of a mother is found in her faithfulness and character as it's reflected in her children.

God's Wisdom for Mothers was created to give timeless wisdom and guidance for Scripture meditation and application with 11 categories (62 subjects) pertaining to motherhood. Topics include God's Wisdom with Children, God Delights in Mothers Who . . . , God Walks with Mothers Through Heartache, Adversity, Worry, and many, many more. Included are pages at the back for prayer lists and personal study notes.

This book is a spiritual pathway to help every mother become all she can be in the eyes of God and her family.

My thoughts:

God’s Wisdom for Mothers is a beautiful edition that would be a lovely gift for a mother on Mother’s Day.

Let’s start at the first page, which has a ‘to’ and ‘from’ space. From here we go on to a rather large Table of Contents section; included are God’s Wisdom; The Crown of an Excellent Mother; God’s Wisdom with Children; God Teaches a Mother to Walk in His Word by…; God Delights in Mothers Who are…; God Walks with Mothers; God Encourages Each Mother to…; God Teaches Mothers How to…; and God Gives a Mother…. Each chapter is a compilation of Bible verses, all of which point the way to scripture based motherhood and child-rearing.

This is a small, compact book which can be carried in a purse for casual reading; placed neatly beside one’s bed on a night table; or taken easily along with one’s Bible to a study group. The graphic art on the cover is colorful and inviting. Thomas Nelson Publishing, along with author Jack Countryman have done a wonderful job in the presentation of a little gem that will encourage mothers of all ages. I highly recommend it, especially, for young mothers who are just starting out on their challenging and exciting journey into motherland.

(Thank you to Thomas Nelson Publishing for my review copy.)

I do believe this is one I'm going to have to have! Mothers have a huge challenge today, and often they are unsung heroes. If ever we needed wisdom, it is now.
