From the Inside Flap
When your world is dominated by dirty diapers, the fair distribution of animal crackers, and nightly battles over proper dental hygiene, it's easy to feel as if your unique gifts and callings have been swept aside like those stale Cheerios collecting dust bunnies under the kitchen table. Moms with a passion for missions, social justice, and evangelism may even feel like their families are "hampering" their ministry, though few would dare admit it. But it doesn't have to be that way. Written in a chatty, conversational tone, "Don't Hide Your Light" is a collection of fun- sized essays that can be read in five minutes or lessperfect for sleep-deprived moms who need reading material that can be picked up without guilt and put down without frustration. Readers will be armed with an array of ideas on how to impact their home, workplace, community, and world, and tips and testimonies from everyday moms will get women excited about how God could use them right where they are, spit-stains and all.

1. It is arranged in short-essay form so you can put it where you nurse your baby and get a little read throughout the day, or in the kitchen and read it while you are stirring noodles for supper. It is the perfect layout for a busy mom to actually get through.
2. It cuts through the battle lines of the mommy-wars. Often mom-advice books clearly come from one or another mom-lifestyle and don’t work for everyone. This one does! If you are a mom who loves Jesus and wants to share him with the neighbors across the street, and the neighbors on the other side of the world, and if you struggle to know how when you are buried in the demands of every-day life (be they work, laundry, carpooling or homeschooling), this book is for you.
3. This book reads like an encouraging conversation with a witty, and wise friend. Unless you are a perfectionist who would think that you need to do all 150 of the ideas in this book (please don't!), you will probably come away with at least one idea that is just right for you, and a few to shelf for later. Not only that, you will probably find that you are already doing some of these things, and be able to realize the impact you are already having on God’s growing Kingdom.
The short essays are easy to grab when I am short on time, but they are not short on content. Had I realized as a new mom the number of ways I could minister from my stay at home mom position I might not have felt so discouraged in my role.
Don’t Hide Your Light is funny, honest, encouraging, and helpful. I highly recommend it for any mama who wants to make a difference in the world.
