Are you a mom wanting to do something big for God, but you don’t have the energy or the time?
Maybe God has already given you your greater purpose.
Author and mom Shontell Brewer recalls feeling guilty every time her pastor talked about making a difference through mission work. She was the mother of five children and struggled with feeling like she couldn’t get to the real work of missions until she completed the childrearing phase of her life.
God helped Shontell to realize that her mission field was much closer than she thought. It was in her own home with her own children.
Shontell encourages moms to embrace where God has them right now – sacrificing for their children and preparing them to enter adulthood with a strong foundation of faith. God has given moms (and dads) the opportunity and the responsibility of teaching their kids about Him.
On our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Are Your Children Your Mission Field?,” Shontell Brewer encourages weary moms to invest in their biggest and most rewarding mission field – their children.
She’ll share how to leave a legacy for your children by:
- Doing what you can, not what you can’t.
- Avoiding becoming a “martyr mom.”
- Focusing on your fruit.
- Relying on the power of prayer.
- Disciplining with intentionality.
