- great encouragement for a new mom! by Ruth Ann on 6/28/2014
For years I have been encouraged by Eric & Leslie Ludy, so when I heard that Leslie was coming out with a book on motherhood just months after I became a mother myself, I was so excited! Literally could not wait to get my hands on it! The book did not disappoint. Leslie gracefully talks about the day-to-day struggles of motherhood and lovingly reminds us of the importance of this God-given responsibility. Set-Apart Motherhood is very practical and yet at the same time so encouraging and convicting. I love the scripture references and verses throughout the book and how they so aptly apply to my life as mom. The questions at the end of each chapter were an excellent opportunity for me to dig deeper, to ask myself questions to challenge and grow me. As I am new on this road of motherhood, it was so timely for me to read this book. It is a book that I can see myself coming back to many times in the coming years. One huge thing that stuck out to me is that we should be teaching our children honorable behavior for the purpose of glorifying the Lord, not for self applause. The trap of wanting our children to behave so as to not embarrass us or for people to think we have such well-behaved children is not only selfish, but it can also create legalism and rebellion in our children when they see we want it for us. But when we live Christlike behavior out before them, and teach them to love the Lord, it gives much more meaning to the "why." This book would be an excellent encouragement to mothers in any walks of life. No doubt it would make an excellent baby shower gift!
