GIVEAWAY & Book Review- The Missional Mom

I just finished reading Helen Lee’s The Missional Mom- Living with purpose in home & in the world and happily consider it an excellent resource for hurried, scurried moms that want to truly impact the world around them for Jesus! 
Helen shares her own story of fighting the status quo, rethinking through what our culture says is normal, rejecting the assumption that we all just have to fall into ranks and do things the way everyone else does them. Helen (whom I feel I know personally since we’ve emailed a bunch....super sweet and authentic, by the way) is honest about her own struggles as a mom. She and her husband made hard choices for the benefit of their kids and positioned themselves to be used by God whenever and where ever God wanted to use them. 
The Missional Mom shares the stories of other real-life ladies who are also choosing to live life differently than the norm and from the way they’ve done it in the past. These ladies deal with dirty laundry, time-outs, and homework just like the rest of us...but they are proof that being missional and being real are possible. 
Helen did a great job at making this book read-able for the busy, tired mom. Her chapters are short and quick to read through. She generously offered a free copy as a give-away to my blog readers. All you need to do is a leave a comment after this post. The give-away will end Wednesday, March 9th at midnight. I'll contact the winner and get the book to you!

 Pass the word along to your other “mom” friends.

How I wish I had a bookstore or library close by to get a copy of this! I just read about this on CT's Women's blog (Her-meneutics) with interesting comments/reviews. This is where an e-reader would come in handy! Thanks for sharing.

I certainly need all the help I can get! I love that you said she made this an easy read for moms. That is exactly what I am looking for!
