Missional Motherhood: The Everyday Ministry of Motherhood in the Grand Plan of God Read Online Free - There's no such thing as "just" a mom.
Despite the routine tasks and mundane to-do lists, motherhood is anything but insignificant. God has designed motherhood as part of his greater plan to draw people to himself--instilling all women, whether called to traditional mothering or not, with an eternal purpose in nurturing others.
In this book, Gloria Furman searches the Scriptures for the mission of God in motherhood. She opens our eyes to God's life-giving promises--promises intended to empower each and every woman as she makes disciples in her home, in her neighborhood, and around the world.

In her book Missional Motherhood, Gloria Furman says there's never such a thing as "just" a mom. She writes about how God has designed motherhood as part of his greater plan to draw people to himself.
I was so excited to read this book! I was expecting perhaps a study on motherhood in Scripture, p...

Can I just say first of all that I love Gloria Furman's heart? This girl knows and loves the word of God and her zeal is apparent on every page. I heard her speak at TGC Women's Conference 3 years ago, and she spoke with passion and brought new life to old texts of scripture. I've thoroughly enjo...

This book was more theological than practical and the first half of the book is a retelling of almost the whole Bible, which I guess would help if you weren’t familiar with it. I was expecting more, however the last few pages were the best and she had some great things to say. Like mothers get so...

I was excited to review the audiobook of Gloria Furman's Missional Motherhood. This is Furman's newest book, and though I haven't read through an entire book of hers before now, I have heard people speak so highly of her.
This book was not what I was expecting, and I have mixed feelings. However,...

I was so excited to read this book and came away really disappointed. It was split into two parts, the first being a meta narrative of the entire Old Testament. Furman writes that she's trying to give the reader a flyover of the grand plan of God and how it connects to Motherhood. That connection...

He wants us to see that he is the supreme beauty to admire and the supreme person to love. And he doesn't want us just to se...

Not just for moms. I found this book to be packed with gospel truths, cultural observations, and Biblical helps on womanhood.

I really wanted to love this book. Another one of her books, Treasuring Christ When Your Hands are Full, changed motherhood for me altogether. I feel like I have to explain why I didn't rate it well because of that.
While the overview of the OT was excellent, it took up half of the book, and I had...

This was a seemingly simple and straightforward read, but once I allowed myself to pause and dwell upon the words, the gravity of the truth hit deeply. This book zoomed me out of my day-to-day mundane activities that easily become routine and tiresome. Motherhood is not merely a role and a title....

I was excited about doing this book with our women’s doctrine study: a systematic theology with a Jane Austen cover-yes!
But, if I could sum it up in two word I would use, overwritten and patronizing. Ouch, I know. She could have said what she had to say in half the time without such meandering an...
