I haven’t read this book yet, but the premise seems beautiful. I can imagine that it would be difficult for women struggling with infertility to read this, so I am not sure how I will respond to it emotionally. But as soon as I am done with the book I’m reading now, this one is next in line.
Motherhood is something that often gets discounted in today’s society. When I had my initial consultation with an acupuncturist recently, she asked me what I do for a living. I told her I work from home doing administrative-type things for a small company. She then asked me what I wanted to do long-term. When I told her I wanted to be a supportive wife, and a mother, she was quite taken aback. She wanted to know what would fulfill me “intellectually” (those were her words.) She wanted to know my career goals and plans.
I feel as though my purpose is to be a godly wife and mother. I have believed that since I was a young girl. I believe that my purpose is to be Jesus to my husband and children, day in and day out. To devote my heart, energy, time, and life to them.
Motherhood is a high calling and a huge blessing. Love and faith begin in the home, with parents. I believe that mothers can change generations. Mother Teresa said, “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one.” I cannot touch and change the entire world, but I can touch and change my children’s lives and hearts. Filling one child up with the knowledge, the love, and the joy of Christ can change so many other lives. It can change their children’s lives, and their children’s children’s.
