Mothering Heights: A Novel Approach for Christian Mothers by Keitha Smith and Susan Brereton gives the reader a wonderfully Biblical perspective on the role of motherhood. Each chapter contains several quotes from a well-known novel, such as Pride and Prejudice, and relates them to an area of parenting. At the end of each chapter are thought-provoking questions that relate to the theme that was discussed.
A number of Bible verses are interwoven throughout the book, bringing a Scriptural foundation to the subject matter. In a post last week, I shared one of my favorite quotes from the book which regards committing our children’s future to God. Many of the things that I read reminded me that I can only be the mother that I need to be with God’s help.
My favorite chapter was the eighth one, which gives extremely practical tips for incorporating the principles that have been presented into your daily life. I would definitely recommend this book for any woman who seeks to be a Godly mother.
If you would like to read this book yourself, you can purchase it through Amazon for $15.
