Consider: “Devoted”

Are you a mother and enjoy sharing experiences with other mothers for mutual encouragement? Well, Tim Challies has a book along those lines that you may like. Devoted: Great Men and Their Godly Moms is a collection of biographical sketches of a variety of mothers of well-known Christian leaders throughout history. Although the times and responsibilities and situations are different, there is much to learn from looking at the lives of these women.

Here is an excerpt:

It seems fitting to conclude this book with so simple and straightforward an example of a godly mother. We know nothing more of Eunice than her commitment to Scripture and her willingness to share it with Timothy. The Bible leaves no other record of her life. She has gone down in history as a godly mother who was privileged to see her son grow up to be a great Christian man, as a true woman of the Word. There is no greater accolade than that.
