{Week 6} Ministry of Motherhood Chapters 7 & 8 Commentary

Today we are finishing week 6 of our Ministry of Motherhood book club. Courtney and I weren’t able to Skype together this week so you got just me this time. I’m actually in the midst of preparing for my brother’s wedding, which is taking place at my house this Saturday,  so today’s post is going to be really short. So sorry I haven’t been able to be online a lot these last few weeks, I’ve been so busy with wedding preparations that I haven’t had any free time. I’ll make sure and post a few pictures of the big day once this weekend is all over.

Chapter 7

“When we take the opportunity to expose our children to the glory of God displayed in a rainbow or powerful ocean waves or a star-studded night sky, we are helping them understand that there is a Being much bigger than themselves who created the universe and holds it together with his power.” – Sally Clarkson, pg 85

Chapter 8

“Many of the people Jesus reached out to probably would have felt out of place in the temple.”- Sally Clarkson, pg 89

“When we understand that God’s love reaches into the dark and depraved corners of people’s lives to bring healing and eternal life, then we will see people not for what they are but for who they are- people Christ loves and who need his redemption.”- Sally Clarkson, pg 91

Praying you enjoyed chapters 7 & 8 this week!

What spoke to you from the assigned reading this week? I’d love to hear from you!

Until next time…

Love God Greatly!

Inspiring Our Children & WIWW Link-Up!

This guest post is from Connie, wife for 26 years, mother of 8 rowdy children. She writes daily at Smockity Frocks about household management, homeschooling, crafts, recipes, large family living, and MORE.

Chapter 7: Inspiring a Sense of God’s Powerful Presence

Since our family is in week eight of surviving my husband’s sudden layoff, this chapter really struck a chord with me.

Sally writes in this chapter about pointing out to our children the wonderful ways in which the Lord works and not allowing everyday stresses to make us overlook his powerful presence.

This happened for us this very week when we received an anonymous envelope in the mail. Inside the envelope were 30 passes to the city pool. The temperatures in north central Texas have already reached triple digits, and since we are trying to cut back on expenses by not using our air conditioner, those pool passes caused a LOT of excitement for our family!

When we pulled up to the pool and everyone saw the three-story twisty water slide, my 5 year old exclaimed, “Oh, Mama! I have always wanted to come to this pool!” I told her that God knew her heart’s desire and provided those pool passes for us through the kindness of an anonymous friend. I reminded everyone that we must thank God for blessing us with friends and for providing a fun, cool treat for us.

It’s so easy to focus on the stressful events in our lives, particularly when that stress includes the loss of our income. If we look around though, we are sure to find many ways that the Lord blesses us, even in the midst of trials.

Chapter 8: Inspiring a New Kind of Love


“When we follow in the footsteps of Jesus to reach out in love to those in need, we will ignite in our children the sense that they are worthy to consider themselves part of the solution in meeting people’s needs.”

I love the way Sally reminds us that we can model Jesus’ love by serving others, particularly those who may not look like we do.

My own 16 year old daughter is such a wonderful example of doing this! Boy, did she teach this old mother what it means to love like Jesus did when she gave a well to a community in Africa for her 16th birthday!

I hope I can inspire others to model this kind of love they way she has done.
