Beeke, Joel R.
Sometimes the many tasks of homemaking and motherhood seem unending, and many moms wonder if they will ever feel productive.
Author Esther Engelsma says moms can feel productive—if they change the way they think about their work. She helps readers understand that God’s goal for moms is not centered on getting things done. Rather, God wants them to use time well, grow in sanctification, and glorify Him. With a warm, friendly style, the author shares from Scripture and practical experience the freeing truth of God’s purpose for moms and their valuable kingdom work.

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said that what the church needs to do most all is “to begin herself to live the Christian life. If she did that, men and women would be crowding into our buildings. They would say, ‘What is the secret of this?’” As Christians, one of our greatest needs is for the Spirit of God to cultivate biblical godliness in us in order to put the beauty of Christ on display through us, all to the glory of the triune God. With this goal in mind, this series of booklets treats matters vital to Christian experience at a basic level. Each booklet addresses a specific question in order to inform the mind, warm the affections, and transform the whole person by the Spirit’s grace, so that the church may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things.
Esther Engelsma lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with her husband and daughter. She also serves her church as an administrative assistant.
“Replace your wearisome, multitasking, productivity driven approach to mothering with a grace-filled, Christ focused approach. Esther Engelsma does this beautifully as she reminds us that our primary aim is eternal—the glory of God and the salvation of our children.” — Shona Murray, co-author of Refresh: Embracing a Grace-Paced Life in a World of Endless Demands
