For a Christian, motherhood is the subtle art of building a house in grace-"The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her own hands" (Prov. 14:1). Each day's work is significant, for it contributes toward the long-term plan. Each nail helps a house stand in a storm. But motherhood isn't a simple formula. Building a home-childbirth, education, discipline-requires holy joy and a love of beauty. The mother who fears God does not fear the future.

THE best book on Christian mothering I have read yet! This book is a must-read. I refer back to it again and again to remind myself of the many things God requires of mothers. I also highly recommend Nancy Wilson's "Fruit of Her Hands" and Douglas Wilson's (Nancy's husband) books on family.
