The Slow-Ripening Fruits Of Mothering: Time Out Classics
Attention: For textbook, access codes and supplements are not guaranteed with used items.
How are you doing as a mom? If you're like most of us, you base your assessment on appearances: how the children are behaving, the progress they're making, the evidences you see that they're moving forward. After all, as Matthew 7:17 tells us, By their fruits ye shall know them. But appearances can be deceiving, and they don't always tell us the whole story. As Emily Watts points out, most fruit is not really very good until it is ripe and children are the slowest-ripening fruit there is. Using examples from the scriptures and her own life experiences, Emily will help you find the patience with yourself and with your children that you need to stay afloat on difficult mothering days. You will laugh, you will recognize your own challenges, and you will feel the peace that comes from knowing that Heavenly Father is in charge and stands willing to help along the way.
