Modern life can be a challenge for mothers trying to raise righteous children in a world they view as hostile to Christian values. Popular blogger Thompson offers modern Christian moms assurances that it is possible to survive, and even thrive, with the Bible as a guide for living. She insists that a godly woman doesn't just understand the presence of God in her life, but must experience and live out that presence every day: "No matter how overlooked or forgotten you believe you are, what you are doing in this season in your life has significance." Thompson surveys her own experiences and demonstrates how her realization of God's presence in her life guided and informed her journey, leading her believe it's never been a better time to raise a Christian family. Remembering the meeting between the Samaritan woman and Jesus, she writes: " knew she wasn't just in need of water to drink. She was in need of fuel for her soul." It's this inspiration that Thompson draws on to support Christian mothers, providing a wealth of fuel for women looking for guidance and direction. (Mar.)
