Tap into your passions and leverage you influence for the good of the world and the glory of God—even if you have a baby strapped to your chest and a toddler clinging to your knees.
When your world is dominated by dirty diapers, animal crackers, and nightly battles over proper dental hygiene, it’s easy to feel as if your unique gifts and callings have been swept aside like those Cheerios collecting dust bunnies under the kitchen table. Moms with a passion for missions, social justice, and evangelism may even feel like their families are “hampering” their ministry, though few would dare admit it. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Written in a chatty, conversational tone, Don’t Hide Your Light is a collection of fun-sized essays that can be read in five minutes or less—perfect for sleep deprived moms who need reading material that can be picked up without guilt and put down without frustration. You will be armed with an array of ideas on how to impact your home, workplace, community, and world. And, tips and testimonies from everyday moms will get you excited about how God could use you right where you are, spit-stains and all.
