There is a reason that Mrs Clarkson is one of my very favorite authors. She speaks to a mother's heart like no one else. I speak with perfect honesty when I say that she has been my biggest mentor as a mother. I feel so blessed to have discovered this Godly woman so early in my motherhood walk! Her very words leap off the page and envelope you into a sisterly hug. This particular book was written with homeschoolers in mind, but all mothers will benefit from her godly, warmhearted wisdom.

This is an incredible book on the subject of Motherhood. I read it at least once every year. I think I started reading it in 2003. It basically describes the journeys of motherhood based on the four seasons. Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. It provides hope and encouragement.
I loved all of Sally Clarkson's books! They were such an encouragement to me when I was home raising my kids. Now my daughter is reading "The Mission of Motherhood" and I am so glad that she gets to benefit from these books, too!

A great book for mothers and homeschoolers. It is read like a devotional but leads like a standard textbook for homeschool moms. If you need encouragement, this book is for you.
I was really encouraged by this book for the first few chapters- she spoke to real areas of difficulty in every mother's life. But as the book went on I gathered that maybe the author was writing through a lens that portrayed somewhat of a shallow understanding of the grandeur of the gospel. The true message of the Bible seemed a little shifted to focus on our righteousness being our own- instead of bringing us to the cross and the righteousness we have in Christ. Maybe I missed something. But I ...more

My issue is more with the writing than the content. While she clearly divides the book into sections according to season, I did not get a clear idea of what was specific to each season. Overall, it was incredibly encouraging to hear wisdom from a seasoned homeschool mom. Her ideas were thoughtful and practical, and rooted in the Word of God. I would recommend it.
This is hands down the best homeschooling book for mother's ever written. Sally is a loving, logical, oodles of laughs Mom who has homeschooled her 4 children. This book intertwines the raising of her brood with her growth in the Word as Mother. There are many Seasons we have as homeschooling mothers. Sally has captured them all in this must read book. Grab a cup of strong coffee or tea, a sweet of your choice and cuddle up to be encouraged!

This was a great book, however, it started out strong, but towards the end I felt like it was becoming a bit repetitious. All in all, though, I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more from this author!
Every mother, whether you homeschool or not, can relate to the seasons of life that Sally Clarkson covers. This book offers encouragement from someone whose walked the road already. I've already read it twice.
I have several pages of notes/tips/encouragement from this book - not to mention the highlighting inside! Definitely a great read - just take your time to soak it in!
Loved this book. This author is so sincere and genuine. Some really great ideas to help foster a loving and creative environment in your home.
I love her books! This one was just as good as all the others of hers I have read so far.
so much good stuff, love how she incorporates Scripture in each chapter.
