  • Every child is different, but mothers are very much the same around the world--the same worries and fears, guilt and joys. Dive in to For the Joy and laugh and cry with 21 Australian missionary mothers as they share stories of raising kids in both remote far-flung places and some of the most populated cities in the world. These inspiring stories will resonate in the heart of the reader as fear, faith, and figuring it out come together in page-turning reality. Stories include:  

    - home-schooling while living in a bus 

    - navigating the toddler years as a "third culture mum" 

    - raising a child with special needs 

    - recovering from anxiety on the field 

    - giving birth in a foreign hospital 

    - the grief of losing your family to persecution ... and more! 

    Honestly written, raw in emotion, sad and joyful in equal measure, this collection of stories offers insight into the complexities of parenting children while serving God no matter where you call home.

    Endorsements:

    I found myself enormously challenged while reading this collection of missionary mums' stories. I am grateful for the opportunity, through this book, to engage with my heavenly Father about my commitment to His mission to take the good news of Jesus to a lost world.... no matter the risk, the hardship, the suffering, the tears. I am also thankful that I now have a much greater understanding of what the missionary mums that I regularly partner with in prayer are experiencing on the field.

    --Lesley Ramsey, editor of What Women Really Need

    Whenever I visit Bible colleges where missionaries train, women want to know what it is like to be a mother on the mission field ... this is a set of stories that need to be told.

    --Evelyn Hibbert, Leading Multicultural Teams
