“Sally Clarkson has achieved a beautiful balance of biblical teaching and the heart of a mother in The Mission of Motherhood. She gently takes the reader by the hand and stands with her before the truth of her calling. Readers will be entertained by her personal stories, empowered by God’s call to mothers, and encouraged by Sally’s teaching.” –Vicki Caruana, author of the best-selling Apples & Chalkdust and founder of EncourageTeachers.com
“In The Mission of Motherhood, Sally Clarkson invites the reader into her family and into her heart to see ‘mother’ in action: teaching, comforting, training, enriching, and blessing. This book elevates the mission of motherhood and sends the reader back to her children ‘pumped.’ ” –Jean Fleming, author of A Mother's Heart
“Sally hasn’t one impolite bone in her body. She so politely passes on what is actually a powerful message. Those who seek affirmation of the value of traditional motherhood will find it here wrapped in biblical principles and a certain sympathetic sweetness.” –Karen Andreola, author of A Charlotte Mason Companion
