Good Reads – Devoted by Tim Challies
Happy Mother’s Day!
In 2 Timothy 1:5 Paul says to Timothy “For I am mindful of the sincere faith within you, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am sure that it is in you as well.” Paul’s words have inspired and encouraged me over the years to remember the profound spiritual influence that mothers and grandmothers have in the lives of their children. It is a high honor to pass our faith on to our children and grandchildren – and a responsibility to be taken seriously.
On this day set apart to honor mothers everywhere, it seemed perfect to recommend this new book to you. Tim Challies is one of my favorite bloggers, and he compiled a series of posts into this book – Devoted: Great Men and Their Godly Mothers. You can find an excerpt here.
So, Moms and Grandmas everywhere enjoy this good read and remember that even when the days are long and hard, God is working through you in the lives of your children.
