If you have been following Good Morning Girls for anytime, you’ll know that I adore Sally Clarkson! I love her books, her writing, her stories…….ahhh I just love HER!!! With that said, I’m so excited to announce a giveaway of her book The Mom Walk as well as one by her daughter, Sarah, called Journeys of Faithfullness.
If you are struggling in your walk as a mom…..this book is for you! I love the personal, heartfelt stories Sally shares as well as the encouragement she gives!
Here are just a few of my favorite quotes from her book, The Mom Walk.
“The more I have studied Scripture, the more I have realized that God designed the role of mother to be one of the most important relationships a child will ever have. How I walk my path as a mother will greatly determine the outcome of my children’s souls, relationships, vision for life, and the success in their own walk with God.”
“It is all about how well we learn to walk this journey with God, and how well we provide a godly pattern for our children to follow and teach them how to walk their own paths with God. It is about living in the presence of God, resting in His will, walking in His power and being a part of what He is doing in and through our lives.”
“I need to remember that I am to lead my children in what it means to become a person who celebrates the joy of life. I am to model what it looks like to enjoy God and His creation. Often, in the midst of the duties of life, moms can easily become focused only on the right things to do. We can fixate on correcting the immaturity of our children and inadvertently portray God as strict moral judge just waiting for them to fall short. We can lose sight of God’s grace.”
“A mother who gives her children a heart ot celebrate God’s life and beauty gives a gift of life. She is helping her children draw joy from their lives and memories that will bring them strength and pleasure all their days.”
“A life built on any foundation other than the Word of God is a life doomed to fall. But if we, as moms, walk this journey with God’s Word as our source of wisdom and life, and if we listen to and apply the words of Jesus to our lives, we will indeed have a house (family) that remains standing through the storms and floods of trails and difficulties. We will have a spiritual legacy that will last through eternity.”
You love being a mom. You are wholeheartedly committed to your children. You long for them to grow up to be mature, loving, fruitful, and faithful followers of God. But you know that means you are called to be that kind of mom. It means you must be faithful on God’s path of motherhood for you.
That is your mom walk. It is how you walk with God as mother. It is how you seek Him, trust Him, live in His grace, and draw on His strength one step of faith at a time. The mom walk is your path:
P: How you walk with Purpose as a mother
A: How you walk with Assurance as a mother
T: How you walk with Trust as a mother
H: How you walk with Heart as a mother
In The Mom Walk you journey alongside Sally Clarkson in her own walk as a mother after God’s heart. Through her personal stories from twenty-seven years of motherhood, inspiring and challenging truths from Scripture, and spiritual insights from both the dark and light sides of the journey, you will find renewed encouragement for your own mom walk with God.
