The Ministry of Motherhood

I am seriously adoring this summer book club from Good Morning Girls! I love that our daily scripture directly relates to the wonderful and uplifting book that we are reading! This scripture is perfection all by itself, but when paired with inspirational words about mothering and kindness, it really does warm the soul!

The book we are reading is called The Ministry of Motherhood: Following Christ's Example in Reaching the Hearts of our Children. The author beautifully discusses parenting in a unique and spiritual way. I am enjoying this book so much! As I read along with the Good Morning Girls I am feeling so blessed that this book has come into my home! Parts of this book have brought sweet tears to my eyes and have caused me to look at the scriptures more deeply. There are times when the author brings a scripture to life- adding details that may have been present, and painting a story for one to behold.

This book is not written by an LDS author, the author uses examples of Christ found in The Holy Bible. This book is beautiful and wonderful, and is non-denominational in its wordings. This is the PERFECT gift for any Christian mother! I love reading inspirational books- they strengthen my testimony about all scriptures, including The Book of Mormon. So many times I will read a beautiful scripture that is discussed in an inspirational Christian book, and I will recall a perfect companion scripture in The Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, or Pearl of Great Price! So many times have I felt warmed by a wonderful passage from The Holy Bible, and upon further research felt enlightened by the fulfillment of the Gospel found in these other holy texts. I feel so blessed to have my scriptures!
