    What a sweet gem for my heart this weekend. I?m so encouraged by these godly moms- by their faith in Christ, their prayers, their hard work, and their determination on behalf of their kids. I was especially encouraged by the mama who suffered much physical difficulty as I feel right ...

    Every mom should read this book!! This is a compilation of godly moms that loved and served their families with eyes looking to Christ for their guidance. We ought to desire to live such prayer filled lives as these women, seeking to lead our children to faith in God. ...

    Great book! Being a Mom is such an incredible blessing from God. Awesome reminder of how important it is to daily pray for our children & share God?s Word with them. ...

    Loved this little book. Recommended for dads as well as moms, and sons and daughters alike. ...

    Wonderful, simple book about Godly men with wonderful mothers. I wish it would have gotten a little deeper, but overall an enjoyable read. ...

    One of the hardest roles I've ever held is that of mother. It's truly a case of on-the-job training. And because it's so hands-on, I have tended to focus on the practical day-to-day aspects of mothering. Now that my kids are young adults (though not all launched), it's a whole new ball...

    A much appreciated book of encouragement at a time when I greatly needed it. A challenge to continue on in the Word, increase my prayer life greatly on behalf of my family, and trust fully in the sovereignty of God to save sinners. A challenge to disciple each one of my children faithf...

    I really should have made this more like a devotional reading, taking one example from history at a time and savoring it. But I couldn?t. I was so hungry to be encouraged by the examples in this book and to be set aright by the actual experiences of others who have loved more challen...

    Short encouraging read for mothers of sons. Highly recommend. ...

    This was a short, easy read. While it features men from all different upbringings and backgrounds, the theme of a Mother?s perseverance in prayer, steadfast love for her children, and quiet trust in the Lord is laced throughout the book. Each story was an inspiration to me to continu...

    Encouraging book! ...

    I found this book so encouraging as a mom of four boys. It seems so rare to see strong Christian men who grew up in the church. This book gives several examples of godly men and how their mothers influenced then. ...

    This is hands-down my favorite book on mothering that I have ever read. It was incredibly encouraging and practical. Not to mention, it told short biographies that read like story-time. I loved every second and only hate that it wasn't longer. I listened to it on Christian Audio, but I...

    Many of us know the names of C. H. Spurgeon, John Piper, Hudson Taylor, John Newton, and many more, but we know very little about the women who most influenced them during their formative years. Tim Challies gives short encouraging biographies of these remarkable women, who raised ext...

    When I picked up this book, I expected it to be good, but it is much better! I recommend all the tired, weary, and sometimes helpless moms (which is all moms at least at some point in our lives) to read this short book. Challies does an excellent job of giving us enough of the great me...

    One of the hardest roles I've ever held is that of mother. It's truly a case of on-the-job training. And because it's so hands-on, I have tended to focus on the practical day-to-day aspects of mothering. Now that my kids are young adults (though not all launched), it's a whole new ball...

    Short encouraging read for mothers of sons. Highly recommend. ...

    This is hands-down my favorite book on mothering that I have ever read. It was incredibly encouraging and practical. Not to mention, it told short biographies that read like story-time. I loved every second and only hate that it wasn't longer. I listened to it on Christian Audio, but I...

    This book is such a positive encouragement to any mom with a son. I read this book very slowly, trying to glean all the wisdom I could from the examples of these amazing mothers! I love how Tim Challies ended each chapter with ?a mother?s reflection? and then application question...

    This was a great read. I enjoyed Challies' short biographies on these godly moms. He does a great job at making you feel the weight and importance that mom's have on the spiritual lives of their children. One thing that I particular liked was how Challies was able to also point out whe...

    Mothers have impacted their children in tremendous ways throughout history, including theologians. Reading these simple stories and learning what these women did and how their sons valued them was very encouraging. I enjoy Challies? blog, so I was a bit surprised at the roughness...

    This was a great quick read. Challies looks at a number of Christian mothers of sons who impacted the world for Christ. Each story reveals a different facet of the ministry of motherhood and the varying dynamics such as one with a drunken abusive husband, a single mom, and even an athe...

    Many of us know the names of C. H. Spurgeon, John Piper, Hudson Taylor, John Newton, and many more, but we know very little about the women who most influenced them during their formative years. Tim Challies gives short encouraging biographies of these remarkable women, who raised ext...

    So encouraging! When going through a rough patch with your kids, it can be so encouraging to see that perseverance pays off, faithfulness bears fruit, and simple godly living makes a difference, even if you can't see it immediately. This little book give that encouragement and hope....

    Every single mom needs to go get this book immediately! I know I will listen through this many more times in the years ahead. Charlie?s takes a look at great men through out history and their godly mothers who came before them. He?s not offering a glib answer to parenthood ques...

    What a sweet gem for my heart this weekend. I?m so encouraged by these godly moms- by their faith in Christ, their prayers, their hard work, and their determination on behalf of their kids. I was especially encouraged by the mama who suffered much physical difficulty as I feel right ...

    Every mom should read this book!! This is a compilation of godly moms that loved and served their families with eyes looking to Christ for their guidance. We ought to desire to live such prayer filled lives as these women, seeking to lead our children to faith in God. ...

    Great book! Being a Mom is such an incredible blessing from God. Awesome reminder of how important it is to daily pray for our children & share God?s Word with them. ...

    This was a very encouraging book. I felt like it was just as much a book about the power of prayer. ...

    Loved this little book. Recommended for dads as well as moms, and sons and daughters alike. ...

    Wonderful, simple book about Godly men with wonderful mothers. I wish it would have gotten a little deeper, but overall an enjoyable read. ...

    This is a beautiful little book. Makes me want to stay the course. ...

    When I picked up this book, I expected it to be good, but it is much better! I recommend all the tired, weary, and sometimes helpless moms (which is all moms at least at some point in our lives) to read this short book. Challies does an excellent job of giving us enough of the great me...

    One of the hardest roles I've ever held is that of mother. It's truly a case of on-the-job training. And because it's so hands-on, I have tended to focus on the practical day-to-day aspects of mothering. Now that my kids are young adults (though not all launched), it's a whole new ball...

    A much appreciated book of encouragement at a time when I greatly needed it. A challenge to continue on in the Word, increase my prayer life greatly on behalf of my family, and trust fully in the sovereignty of God to save sinners. A challenge to disciple each one of my children faithf...

    I really should have made this more like a devotional reading, taking one example from history at a time and savoring it. But I couldn?t. I was so hungry to be encouraged by the examples in this book and to be set aright by the actual experiences of others who have loved more challen...

    A short read about several men and the spiritual influence of their mother. This book was an inspiring reminder of the value of investing in a child's spiritual growth. It showed how God used the humble efforts of these specific mothers to impact their children and others. I would high...

    Devoted features short chapters each highlighting a great Christian man and how his mother shaped his life and his walk with God. There are questions of application to think over at the end of each chapter. I was encouraged and challenged. 2018 - A book about Christian history. ...

    I was so encouraged, challenged, and convicted throughout this short book by the wonderful examples of all the godly mothers that the author discusses. As a mom of boys it really spoke to me, though it certainly is not limited to moms of only boys. I plan on reading it multiple times t...

    As a mom of 3 boys, I found this book to be amazingly encouraging as to the influence a godly mother can have on her sons. I?m going to recommend this book to every boy-Mom I know. ...

    Would recommend to every Christian mom! So encouraging!! ...

    Short encouraging read for mothers of sons. Highly recommend. ...

    This was a short, easy read. While it features men from all different upbringings and backgrounds, the theme of a Mother?s perseverance in prayer, steadfast love for her children, and quiet trust in the Lord is laced throughout the book. Each story was an inspiration to me to continu...

    Encouraging book! ...

    I found this book so encouraging as a mom of four boys. It seems so rare to see strong Christian men who grew up in the church. This book gives several examples of godly men and how their mothers influenced then. ...

    This is hands-down my favorite book on mothering that I have ever read. It was incredibly encouraging and practical. Not to mention, it told short biographies that read like story-time. I loved every second and only hate that it wasn't longer. I listened to it on Christian Audio, but I...

    Tim Challies? latest book, which celebrates mothers who were used to shape the men who changed the world, began as a series of articles he wrote on his book. Rebecca Stark and Melissa Edgington added helpful ?Questions for Reflection? for each chapter, and Edgington also adds ?...

    This book is such a positive encouragement to any mom with a son. I read this book very slowly, trying to glean all the wisdom I could from the examples of these amazing mothers! I love how Tim Challies ended each chapter with ?a mother?s reflection? and then application question...

    This was a great read. I enjoyed Challies' short biographies on these godly moms. He does a great job at making you feel the weight and importance that mom's have on the spiritual lives of their children. One thing that I particular liked was how Challies was able to also point out whe...
