Don't Hide Your Light under a Laundry Basket is packed with creative ideas that will help women tap into their passions and leverage their influence for the good of the world and the glory of God—even if they have a baby strapped to their chest and a toddler clinging to their knees.
When your world is dominated by dirty diapers, the fair distribution of 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 stale 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. Readers will be armed with an array of ideas on how to impact their home, workplace, community, and world, and tips and testimonies from everyday moms will get women excited about how God could use them right where they are, spit-stains and all.
