Inspiration for moms who want to change their world

The Missional Mom by Helen Lee is a new way of looking at motherhood and faith in the emergent faith of the 21st century. Lee has interviewed several mothers who have taken steps to live out their faith in very real ways, by moving into disadvantaged communities and making it their home, by traveling to other countries to minister to the needs of the poor, by adopting children from other countries to make their homes more open and welcoming, by opening their homes to strangers in need of hospitality, and many other ways. Each woman has listened to God's love in their hearts and are changing the world around them, as well as how their children view Christianity. Lee lays out the reasoning and Scripture to support these occasionally radical actions in a way that will inspire readers to stretch their own resources and hearts to meet the needs of their own community. Lee's writing is very conversational and friendly, but you can sense her excitement and devotion to the cause. She wants to win readers over to this way of thinking, because mothers often have far more influence than they perceive. She offers realistic advice for readers to implement their own change, but her primary encouragement is to listen to the nudges from the Lord to see if He may be speaking to you, especially after reading this book. This quote from Lee sums up the book well: Comfort is a spiritual gift God gives us, one with the missional purpose that we are to share it with others. Lee wants to help mom find their place in God's plan and to realize that that place just may be far bigger than they could ever imagine.  It's a book filled with hope and inspiration.
