The Mom God Chose: Mothering Like Mary based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
What could you and I possibly have in common with the mother of our LORD? The Mom God Chose introduces Jesus’ mother on a personal level, relating Mary’s intimate ponderings to the common experiences of women through the ages. The author’s story-telling style bridges cultures and millennia by explaining historical details that bring into focus the nuances that might otherwise blur into the background. We see the miracle of God made flesh and identify with the sometimes faltering, sometimes shining faith of his people. The accounts from present-day Christian sisters made me weep at their faith amid trials and marvel at their peace from our mutual Source of strength. They underline how urgent it is for me to equip my children with their strength Source for life, fostering love for God’s Word in their hearts today, now, while I can. I savored the poetry lines that open each chapter and reread whimsical morsels that pepper the soul-search. The book speaks honestly and tenderly in a way that led me again to heart-felt recognition of my own deep need for a Savior. Its simple beauty inspired me to meditate on the profound truths of the Bible and invoked my awe of the One who has given me everything. It stirred my thirst for more Scripture reading, where I can know him better. Sarah writes friend-to-friend, teaching in a gentle, faithful spirit. She uses everyday examples to bring home abstract ideas, similar to the way Jesus’ parables taught kingdom lessons. She accentuates the magnificent love of God, and lavishes encouragement full of sweet gospel grace to hungry hearts. The book helps us re-focus on what matters most—souls being saved for eternity by knowing Jesus! It personalizes the freedom we gain in the the good news: Jesus IS ALL I need. We yearn for our Rescuer who deserves all our trust. Our baptism that welcomed inept, lost me and human you as God’s own also sets us apart for his service. We can be proud to be known as his, and revel in calling him “Father.” Our spirits, like Mary’s, rejoice in God our Savior!
