Because Mamas Need Hope


I’ve got exciting news! Much like my opening post for this blog it is with nervous anticipation that I announce to you… My first book is in the works!  This has been a dream for me since I can remember and now the time is right. 

I want this book to be an encouragement to young moms. Because being a mama is work! Hard work.! And it is easy to get frustrated with our husbands… our kids…our homes… and our lives. We often feel drained, discontent, distracted and as if we are drowning in a  never ending list of to-do’s. We need hope! Hope found in a vision to see the importance of our role.  

The value of our mama footprint on the hearts of our children is often overlooked in the hustle and bustle of daily life. We have approximately an 18 year window to influence and shape our children. And our Enemy knows he has those same 18 years as well. 

As Christian moms, these years are a call to action. A call to do more. More than just get through the day. A call to see our children through God’s eyes and to embrace mamahood with passion in the day-in day-out, milk-spilled-on-the-floor, dirty-diapers moments of life and leave a godly impression on our young ones that will last an eternity.

This book will explore the difference between being just a mom and being a godly mom who uses her influence in daily life to point her children’s hearts towards Christ.  Mamahood is more than just proper care and feeding of their little ones. It is about shaping young hearts and leading young souls.  

I know you are limited on both time and sleep and therefore attention span. So to give you the accomplished feeling of finishing a book before its time to plan a graduation open house, this book will purposely be shorter in length. Yay!

But this will be more than just a book. You will be able to engage other mamas through the book’s Facebook page (I’ll let you know when it’s up and running) and watch fun videos to inspire and encourage you as you pursue the mamavision - all right here at PursuingMore.com.
