The Ministry of Motherhood by Cheryl Lacey Donovan is a guide for mothers, especially single mothers from a woman with a powerful testimony. Donovan, a pastor's daughter, became a mother at the age of sixteen. Facing the guilt of letting her parents down, but still caught up in lust with her son's father, she married him and quickly came to regret it as he abused her physically and emotionally. Throughout those tumultuous years, Donovan looked to her parents who offered her unconditional love and support, modeling God's love to her, as well as what it means to be a good mother. She has taken those lessons and distilled them into this short, informative book. There are three distinct sections to the book's success. In the first, Donovan relates a portion of her life's story with great detail and emotion. The second portion gives Scriptural  verses and stories about what she was facing and how readers facing similar troubles can take her experience and learn from it. After each of those chapters is a prayer written to specifically address that issue: single parenthood, defeating lust, overcoming guilt, etc. While the book suffers from a few grammatical and spacing errors, Donovan's writing is strong and vibrant. Her message to mothers is that we are the Bibles that our children read throughout their lives, and it is up to us to ensure that what they read is truly of God.
