Summary

Sometimes moms see the never-ending laundry, dirty diapers, and skinned knees as relatively insignificant when compared to activities and callings that seem more important and lasting. But there is eternal value in even the most mundane moments if the great commission informs how we're thinking about all of life, including what it means to be a mom.

Tracing motherhood in the story of the Bible and drawing out key implications for moms today, Gloria Furman helps women live out God's story of redemption in their daily lives as they nurture their children and joyfully share the message of the Gospel with those around them.

Elizabeth

There is no way you can read/listen to this and not be changed. I found myself backing up and re-listening dozens of times because the content is so good -- I had to hear it again! My husband and I are constantly talking about how we can have a missional perspective in accordance with God's Word and concepts talked about in this book -- it will be revolutionary to our lives, how we raise our children, interact with our neighbors and coworkers, and go about even the "normal" activities in our daily life.

A Great Over-Arching Idea Book

Gloria lays out the Gospel very plainly, and draws our attention from the hubbub and mess of our daily lives, to the purpose and overall goal (mission) we have as Christian mothers. It's a great listen, as Sarah Zimmerman is a fantastic narrator. The only drawback is that the book is very light on application and practical living. Would make a great group study tool where a leader could draw out questions/answers of application from the group.

Superb narration of gospel centered book

simple but deep thoughts to help all women stay gospel focused in the midst of life. I don't have any children here, just a miscarriage, but I got so much from these words and believe all women can.

Perspective

MISSIONAL MOTHERHOOD did a fantastic job of putting my role as 'mother' in perspective through the lens of scripture. This is a gospel-focused read that I recommend for all Christian women, from singles to grandmothers and everything between.

Very grateful that I downloaded this book, it has inspired me in so many ways to not only be a better mother to my own children; but how to also put my works into action in my community. Praise Yeshua for your obedience!! Shalom!!

paraphrasing the bible

i expected the authors take on how the bible applies to motherhood and how motherhood applies to all aspects of our lives. all i got was a paraphrased version of the bible.

Missional Motherhood speaks truth and hits home

I love that in this book Gloria Furman shows readers the relevancy of the Old Testament, which can sometimes feel less relatable than New Testament books. All of the Bible relates to Motherhood, as she demonstrates tm through giving a "big picture" perspective. Gloria speaks truth and reminds readers of God's design for motherhood while remaining relatable and understanding.
