Beginning with a consideration of God's character and concluding with an invigorating charge to faithfulness, Andrea connects the dots between God's reality and a mother's duty. She draws from the lessons she's learned as a mother of three to encourage younger women to be prudent, to love their children, and to embrace the sanctifying work of the Spirit in their families.
