I love Sarah's writing. Hers is one of the blogs that I return to over and over and find encouragement, wisdom, and gentle admonition toward being a more Christ-focused Mom. And so I was delighted when I learned that Sarah had written a book speaking to the hearts and minds of mothers. And Sarah's heart speaks through this book. She is deeply committed as a mother of her two children but most importantly to honoring the Lord and setting him forth as the Treasure that is worth surrendering lesser things for.  This book expresses the joy of surrender--in our mothering and in pursuing His high calling upon our hearts and lives. I'll share one quote that I especially loved (among many) from the book.  Sarah says, "It is not that motherhood is a better job than say, being a teacher or being a surgeon. I've heard women call motherhood the 'highest' calling on a woman's life. I disagree. The highest call on women is their service to the Lord. But He calls some women to the high calling of motherhood and requires of us high standards." Sarah's wisdom and candidness are refreshing and encouraging. This is a quick, focused, thought-provoking read and a breath of fresh air for the mother whose desire is to honor the Lord first and foremost in her life with her children and family. I strongly recommend this book for Moms who desire to draw nearer to the Savior in their child-raising and who crave a devoted, committed pathway in mothering.

Description of Sarah's book, from Amazon:


What is wholehearted motherhood? Basically (without giving the it all away), wholehearted motherhood is embracing the life of service, femininity, and joy that God requires a mother. It means accepting, submitting, and taking on the life of Christ - through His strength and power. And it means a life that looks very different from our world today.

God laid this vision on Sarah's many years ago as a young teenager from a broken home and the product of third-wave feminism. In writing this book, Sarah had to touch on parts of her life that really hurt - from the sin of others and the sin she lived. 

But God.

Not only is this book about godly motherhood, it is also part of God's redemption story in Sarah's life. These words wouldn't exist if the pages of her life hadn't been written. And she is so thankful.
