Praise Her in the Gates: The Calling of Christian Motherhood - Canon Press 2000 - Paperback, 105 pages

Give her the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates. (Proverbs 31:31)

For a Christian woman, motherhood is the subtle art of building a house in grace: "The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her hands" (Prov. 14:1). Each day's work is significant, for it contributes toward the long-term plan. Each nail helps a house stand in a storm. But motherhood isn't a simple formula. Building a home—childbirth, education, discipline—requires holy joy and a love of beauty. The mother who fears God does not fear the future.
