The High Calling of Motherhoodby Chimene Shipley Dupler
Does motherhood matter?
Have we lost our sense of identity, especially through social media, which can pour both accolades and acid into our hearts and minds? Does our role as a mother have any lasting purpose? What about the hard stuff? Do we self-medicate more than we self-motivate to fight for our families? If we don't have a sense of purpose, how will

I found Chimene's writing style to be highly encouraging and motivating. She challenged our modern thought processes and societal norms on motherhood, going back to biblical truths to remind readers of the incredible gift offered to and responsibility placed on mothers. She doesn't shy away from the hot topics of the day that so many of us are prone to fight in our heads, like comparing our lives with what we see on social media or the struggle between a career and staying home. She reminds us that "motherhood doesn't just matter; it makes a difference" (page 67), and she combats self-serving and self-pleasing mindsets that keep us ever struggling for more: more activities, more opportunities, and more exhaustion. But instead of leaving us on a pile of greater self-loathing as we realize that we, again, don't measure up, Chimene encourages us to embrace Jesus, exchanging our heart for His, shifting our worldview to His, allowing Him to grow and strengthen us as only He can. She offers practical advice when facing tough times, and admonishes us to seek God "in the midst of pain with an unwavering faith that He is good all the time" (page 126). Chimene has a warm, encouraging style that motivates me to reconsider what I'm doing without feeling condemnation about my failures and shortcomings. I believe that Christian mothers will find bits of treasure worth uncovering in the pages of this book. *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
