Missionary Mom: Embracing the Mission Field Right Under Your Roof

Mission work is not for the faint of heart. We admire those brave souls who leave behind the comforts of home and go to foreign fields to bring the love of Christ to people in need. And sometimes it feels uninspiring to be stuck at home in the day-to-day of parenting when others are out there changing the world, soul by soul.

Shontell Brewer has a message to renew the spirits of everyday moms: they too have a critical calling as the very first missionaries their children meet. In her informal, funny voice, Brewer points out the many unexpected parallels: A missionary may need to learn a foreign language and new customs to understand and communicate with those around her. A missionary has to follow the path God puts before her, sacrificing sleep, comfort, time, and toilets. Sound like any moms you know?

Brewer tackles common challenges from mom-guilt to the temptation to be a martyr to those days when it feels like only a box of cookies and a Netflix binge can restore a sense of peace. But through it all, she shares the truth that there’s more to parenting than potty training and orthodontist appointments. Mothers make the love of Christ tangible and understandable to their children. With determination and a few purposeful steps, moms can embrace their own mission field, leading their families–heart, soul, mind, and strength–to Christ.

Missionary Mom: Embracing the Mission Field Right Under Your Roof

Mission work isn’t for the faint of heart. Neither is being a mom.

When you see Christians who are called to be missionaries changing the world soul by soul, staying at home doing day-to-day parenting can feel like you’re stuck in an uninspiring life. Mom, don’t despair: you have your own sacred calling to a mission field of vital importance–your children.

Moms and mission workers have more in common than you may think: A missionary may need to learn a foreign language and new customs to understand and communicate with those around her. A missionary has to follow the path God puts before her, sacrificing sleep, comfort, time, and toilets. Sound like any moms you know?

In her informal, funny voice, Shontell Brewer tackles everything from mom guilt to the temptation to be a martyr to those days when it feels like only a box of cookies and a Netflix binge can restore your sense of peace. But she’ll also help you understand the truth that there’s more to parenting than potty training and dentist appointments. With determination and a few purposeful steps, you can embrace your holy calling to lead your family–their hearts, souls, minds, and strength–to Christ.
