Because Motherhood Isn’t Just a Job. It’s a Calling.

A mother’s day is packed with a multitude of tasks that require energy and time: preparing meals, washing clothes, straightening and cleaning the house, and caring for children. These jobs all are necessary and crucially important. But in the dailyness of providing for a child’ s physical, emotional, and social needs, vital opportunities for spiritual nurture and training can be overlooked.

This doesn’t have to be the case. You can focus your energy on what matters most. Learn how you can:

• Make Life’s Mundane and Nitty-Gritty Moments Work for You and Not Against You.

• Discover Ways to Make Character-Building a Natural Part of Live.

• Teach Your Child in the Same Way Jesus Taught the Disciples.

• Pass on Crucial Gifts that Will Serve Your Family for a Lifetime.

Using biblical wisdom and practical teachings, Sally Clarkson shows how you can make a lasting difference in your child’s life by following the pattern Christ set with his own disciples–a model that will inspire and equip you to intentionally embrace the rewarding, desperately needed, and immeasurably valuable Ministry of Motherhood.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Ministry of Motherhood is the story of one mother who has dared to go beyond the ordinary in loving, leading, and training her children to follow Christ. In this honest and inspiring book, Sally Clarkson paints a stirring vision of a mother’s mission and challenges women to disciple their children to be passionate, devoted servants of Christ.”
–Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author and host of Revive Our Hearts Radio

“Biblical, practical, motivational. This inspiring book belongs on every mother’s nightstand.”
–Linda Dillow, author of Calm My Anxious Heart and coauthor of Intimate Issues

“Here we have a book to substantiate that the ministry of motherhood and the Great Commission are not mutually exclusive, but a complement and catalyst to each other! With an extraordinary blend of humility, challenge, and encouragement, Sally gives an exalted vision to our calling and stewardship as mothers.”
–Debby Thompson, wife and mother with 30 years of ministry leadership, currently with Campus Crusade for Christ, Eastern Europe and Russia 

“If you feel like a hamster on a wheel–you’re running, but you’re not getting anywhere–then The Ministry of Motherhood is for you! Sally Clarkson inspires us to step off that wheel and parent with purpose, not by adding something else to our hectic schedules but by bringing God into everything we do. With down-to-earth, practical examples, she shows us how we, too, can build disciples as we reach our children’s hearts. A very encouraging and easy-to-read book!”
–Sheila Wray Gregoire, author of To Love, Honor, and Vacuum

“My thanks to Sally Clarkson for her sacrifice and dedication and the example her life has been to me. Through her writings she is able to share some of what God has put on her heart. This book, along with her others, reveals her to be a shining example of one committed to honor God in all that they do. May you be blessed as you read this book and continue this journey we call motherhood.”
–Lynn VanWingerden, wife, mother of 23 children, grandmother of 9

I love Sally Clarckson's writings! You will find this book to be full of inspiration, motivation, information, encouragement and vision casting. Her real life stories help you to relate to her and also let you laugh at life raising children. She's a mentor to any Mom in any situation. Raising children is no easy task and I'm so glad for a Mom who is willing to help guide us along this path! This book will also help you realize what an important task you have before you as you raise your children. She has helped me be a better Mom and I think this book will help any Mom with that same desire.

This is a good book. Sally Clarkson reaches my heart with her writing. I also have a book she co-wrote with her husband "Educating the WholeHearted Child". Both books are inspiring.

Mother's so often get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life that we forget that being a good mother is a ministry that makes an impact for generations to come. This book was such an encouragement to me as a mother of two biological children and soon to be 2 adopted boys. This book has inspired me to be more intentional in my day to day routines and to appoach each day as if working for the Lord. I especially loved the section about parenting your children the way Jesus taught his disciples. If you are looking for some encouragement---it's worth the read!
