Motherhood is a wonderful season of life—but also one filled with challenges, trials, discouragements, and stress. Moms labor to tend to the needs of their children and often find themselves empty and spent by the end of the day.
But in the gospel we have a wonderful resource to sustain us. God is more than sufficient to uphold us, and his message of good news applies to all the daily challenges of motherhood.
Christina Fox examines a range of situations through the lens of the gospel and shows us, in each one, who Christ is, where he is, and what he has done for us. Learn how the gospel meets you, in whatever you are going through, with life-giving, soul-saturating hope. Prayers at the end of each brief chapter apply this hope to specific, different challenges of motherhood.
Christina Fox is an author, speaker, and blogger. She is the editor of the PCA women’s ministry blog, enCourage, and a member of the PCA women’s ministry national leadership team
