Missional Mothering

Great article by Jani Ortland over on The Resurgence:

Young mother, it seems like everyone wants something from you. And you’re probably already giving way more than you ever thought you could give.

Is this a godly grief that leads to repentance or a worldly grief that produces death (2 Cor. 7:10)? Is it life-giving or life-depleting?

    I remember Mohler coming in to one of the stores on SBTS campus with his books. Or seeing him in Lifeway Campus Bookstore buying more books. Or delivering books to his house. Books, books, books. Probably 50 a week come to the guy in one form or another.

      That is a crazy amount of books! I can only handle 1.5 a week and even then that’s pushing it sometimes…
