Consider: “The Organized Heart”

It is tempting to see the biggest word in the title above and glide past the last word, but that would give entirely the wrong idea. Staci Eastin has written a book on organization, The Organized Heart: A Woman’s Guide to Conquering Chaos, without any tips, guides, or charts. This book is a heart check, through and through.

Here is an excerpt to give you a taste:

What I hope to do is to help you examine your heart and discover things that may be hindering your walk with God. My goal is not necessarily for you to have a cleaner home or a more manageable schedule—although I certainly hope that is the case. Rather, my hope for this book is that it will help you serve God and your family more effectively, more fruitfully, and with greater peace and joy.

Here is one more:

We rightly ask God to guide our finances as we aim to be good stewards of our money, but we rarely ask that he guide our calendars and help us want to be good stewards of our time. Lay your tasks before the Lord. Prayerfully ask him to guide you in your days. Then get up to work, trusting that he will sustain you and give you the rest that you need.

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.
