Every Mom Needs to Watch This Video

29

Do you have two-minutes to spare?

If you’re a mom who has grown weary or you’re just in need of a dose of loving encouragement today, I have something for you.

Sally Clarkson is a talented and popular author who lives just up the road from us here in Colorado Springs.  She and her husband, Clay, have four children and for nearly two decades have devoted themselves to helping mothers become better parents.  You can learn more about their ministry here. You’ll also want to know that she has a new book coming out this Monday. It’s titled, Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe.

Can you relate?

In Sally’s own words:

I believe that God created mothers with the capacity to inspire greatness, build godly moral leaders who will take God’s kingdom to bear in every area of life–government, medicine, the arts, literature, the military–that it is the shaping of souls that determines greatness of a people and cultivates virtuous faith. 

Motherhood is not just about meeting basic needs. God crafted motherhood to give women the opportunity to be warriors of righteousness in the battle of life. Women are intelligent and spiritual creatures who are capable of transforming history through building godly generations. 

Amen!

I encourage you to watch this short video that she and her colleagues recently created. Please let us know how it strikes you. You probably have a friend who needs to see it, too. I hope you’ll consider forwarding this to them or posting it on your Facebook or Twitter account.

This is a very touching video.  However, if you have a friend who is depressed please do not send this to them.  While it is touching, it will only make them feel worse about themselves.  Show them how much you are worried about them and show them your pain.  That will help her!

This was so timely. Shared it with a sister as well.  Hope there are more videos to come.  Sally has been such an encouragement the last 3 years in my life and has shared great insight into the calling of motherhood, and what it can look like in a healthy loving home!

The job of motherhood can be overwhelming. Sally does an amazing job of speaking to the heart of a mom and giving hope, encouragement, and the desire to raise up a Godly generation. This video shares her heart.

Many thanks for sharing the lost message that motherhood is a high calling.  It is undervalued not only in society but also in Christian circles as well.  I have been personally impacted as a mother by Clay and Sally's ministry through their conferences and books.  Praying that God will continue to use Sally and the growing number of moms joining her to strengthen the army of mothers needed in this generation.   Grateful~Kimberly in OK

This video is a much needed encouragement for moms today; especially moms with little ones!  Sally Clarkson has been a huge blessing to me over the years!  I have literally read all of her books and now, as a homeschooling mom nearing "retirement", I am a MomHeart Group leader.  It is because of Sally's ministry that I have a ministry today.

Thank you so much for all your work on this book and what you are doing to help mothers.  I am looking forward to reading desperate.  The message of this video was lovely.  However, I felt the visuals just don't help moms connect with the words.  This mother has beautiful clean hair, lipstick on and a super clean house!
