Motherhood: The Great Honor




So let’s make it very clear..

motherhood and grandmotherhood are a great honor.

You have a calling that can become the long-remembered ground of faith,

not just for your children—mark this—

but for the untold numbers who will be affected by your children.

And that’s in addition

to all the other thousands of ripple effects of faith

in your life.


-John Piper

This is great....just finished John Piper devotional this morning...also just found out our daughter-in-law miscarried...it would have been our first grandchild. God is faithful, He saw me through miscarriages and He will see them through also...this today just encouraged my heart so!

Thank you so much for this wonderful quote! I have read your blog for quite some time but have never commented. (Mostly due to my sweet little boys- 2 1/2 and 9 months!) I was wondering if you had any advice on how you deal with weariness.
