Are you mom enough?

The cover of Time Magazine asked this haunting question in bold red letters that hung over the startling image of a young mother breastfeeding her four-year-old. When the issue hit newsstands it re-ignited a longstanding mommy war in American culture. But it turns out this was the wrong question, pointing in the wrong direction. There is a higher and more essential question faced by mothers: Is God God enough?

This short book by eight women explores the daily trials and worries of motherhood. In the trenches, they have learned (and continue to learn) how to treasure God and depend on his all-sufficient grace. The paradox of this book is the secret power of godly mothering. Becoming mom enough comes as a result of answering the question, “Are you mom enough?” with a firm no.

Top Highlights

“You cannot have a heart for the gospel and fussiness about your life at the same time. You will never make any difference there if you cannot be at peace here. You cannot have a heart for missions without a heart for the people around you. A true love of the gospel overflows and overpowers. It will be in everything you do, however drab, however simple, however repetitive.” (source)

“When Christ is our treasure, our homes consist of love, grace, and utter dependence on the Holy Spirit. We don’t chase self-righteousness, and we don’t cling to treasures that can be lost. We cling tightly to the only Treasure that cannot be stolen or tarnished, Christ himself.” (source)

“Living in his perfect sufficiency, I will live to parent for another day. Never mom enough, but filled with the One who is always enough.” (source)

“You have everything you need to spiritually nourish your children, because you have Christ” (source)

“Bring grace because it was brought to you. Give grace because it was given to you. The gospel is not too big to fit into little situations. It is too big not to.” (source)
