    • Make Life’s Mundane and Nitty-Gritty Moments Work for You and Not Against You.

    • Discover Ways to Make Character-Building a Natural Part of Live.

    • Pass on Crucial Gifts that Will Serve Your Family for a Lifetime.

    Using biblical wisdom and practical teachings, Sally Clarkson shows how you can make a lasting difference in your child’s life by following the pattern Christ set with his own disciples–a model that will inspire and equip you to intentionally embrace the rewarding, desperately needed, and immeasurably valuable Ministry of Motherhood.
