A Mother's Faith by Mrs. Sharon White is a short paperback book (102 pages) full of wonderful, encouraging words for those of us in the midst of mothering teens and young adults.
I first "met" Mrs. White through the TOS Crew when we were both members. I love her style of writing. I've been a fan of her blog, The Legacy of Home, for some time as a result as well. Mrs. White has a very calming style of writing and I've always felt it refreshing to read her words of wisdom.
In her book, A Mother's Faith, she pulls from her blog posts to compile a small package of encouragement for mother's going through difficulty raising their "waywards." As a mother of five children, Mrs. White has experience and pulls from that to help comfort those who are going through the same situation.
I thought this paragraph from the introduction helps to explain the purpose of the book:
This is a plain, small paperback book, but packed with an important,
ongoing message: Mother's Faith must never waver, no matter what
the waywards do in the home. Mother will one day reap a harvest of joy.
While I pray I never have to deal with a wayward child, I know that the day may come. I plan to hang on to this little gem to help comfort me if the need ever arises. I think it's important to listen to words of wisdom from those who have already traveled the journey.
This is an excellent little gem and one I recommend.
