Overview

You don’t have to be the “perfect” mom to read this devotion book! If you feel worried and concerned and burdened about mothering, then you’re in the perfect position to be comforted by the message of the Gospel: Our perfect God sent His Son to take the punishment we deserve for our sins. You have been made right with God. Heaven is yours. Even though you will still struggle as a mother here on earth, your Father is with you, each and every moment. He equips you for the vocation of motherhood, whether or not you feel adequate for the task. As you read Meditations on the Vocation of Motherhood, find encouragement and solace as a mother, knowing that God is working in you, through you, and also despite you. In Christ, God forgives all of your failures and sends you the Holy Spirit, building you up for the important work of mothering that He has planned for you from eternity.

On each page, Meditations on the Vocation of Motherhood presents a brief portion of Scripture, historical background, reflections related to motherhood, a timeless hymn verse, and Biblical references for further reading. The appendix includes personal narratives written by the author, sharing her journey through miscarriage and her mother’s battle with dementia.

About the Author

Marie K. MacPherson is wife to Ryan, homeschooling hausmutter to their six living children, and redeemed child of God. She is editor of Mothering Many: Sanity-Saving Strategies from Moms of Four or More (2016). She has a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Bethany Lutheran College, with Lutheran school certification and a specialty in communication arts and literature. She used to actively participate in theater, debate team, choir, and international travel, but realizes now that those were merely a foretaste of the joys of her current vocation: managing children's dramatics, arbitrating kids' arguments, singing hymns and lullabies, and sharing unbelievable mission stories. She has been an advocate for mothers, serving as a La Leche League Leader for over six years and a volunteer at a local pro-life pregnancy clinic. When she's not caring for her own children, or the mothers of other children, Marie reads extensively, researching natural health, healing diets, alternative medicine, dementia, homeschooling, theology, evangelism, marriage, and parenting.
