    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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!! ...

    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...

    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...

    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....

    I really liked the short vignettes style of this book. It was easy to read and the Tim Challies stories are interesting. I gave this book three stars, because of the Mother's Reflections sections of each chapter. They felt "should-ish" and guilt-inducing. And were unnecessary, because ...

    This book was fantastic. It tells the story of many famous men throughout Christian history and how their mothers influenced them for the kingdom. It is so incredibly encouraging. I love the mother?s perspective and reflection questions at the end of each chapter. I know this will be...

    If you?re the mother of a son, this book is a MUST read. If you know a mom of a boy, do her a favor and gift her this book. It?s one that I personally will read again and again. So very inspiring and encouraging to see how these eleven moms were diligent to teach, train and pray fo...

    Great book! Lots of encouragement as a mom, not only in continuing to do what we do, pray and teach scripture. As well as encouragement to step it up and pray more and cultivate a love for scripture more! Only bad thing is that the audible version was not great. The reader was mech...

    A very enjoyable and encouraging little read! From now on this will be my go to baby gift for moms of boys, however the principles that made these godly women notable apply to mothers of girls as well. Short read but extremely edifying! ...

    Pretty good book. I loved the stories of great moms shaping their children?s lives. It is built off of blogposts so i felt like it could be more fleshed out and not as short chapters but still a worthy buy. ...

    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...

    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!! ...

    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...

    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...

    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....

    I really liked the short vignettes style of this book. It was easy to read and the Tim Challies stories are interesting. I gave this book three stars, because of the Mother's Reflections sections of each chapter. They felt "should-ish" and guilt-inducing. And were unnecessary, because ...

    This book was fantastic. It tells the story of many famous men throughout Christian history and how their mothers influenced them for the kingdom. It is so incredibly encouraging. I love the mother?s perspective and reflection questions at the end of each chapter. I know this will be...

    Great book! Lots of encouragement as a mom, not only in continuing to do what we do, pray and teach scripture. As well as encouragement to step it up and pray more and cultivate a love for scripture more! Only bad thing is that the audible version was not great. The reader was mech...

    Shorter book than I thought it would be, but was good to read short synopses of the mothers behind spiritual leaders and the different ways they influenced their kids. Made me hopeful that there?s no ?one way? to shepherd kids, because they all had different strengths or enduring...

    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....

    I really liked the short vignettes style of this book. It was easy to read and the Tim Challies stories are interesting. I gave this book three stars, because of the Mother's Reflections sections of each chapter. They felt "should-ish" and guilt-inducing. And were unnecessary, because ...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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!! ...

    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...

    A very enjoyable and encouraging little read! From now on this will be my go to baby gift for moms of boys, however the principles that made these godly women notable apply to mothers of girls as well. Short read but extremely edifying! ...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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!! ...

    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...

    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....

    I really liked the short vignettes style of this book. It was easy to read and the Tim Challies stories are interesting. I gave this book three stars, because of the Mother's Reflections sections of each chapter. They felt "should-ish" and guilt-inducing. And were unnecessary, because ...

    This book was fantastic. It tells the story of many famous men throughout Christian history and how their mothers influenced them for the kingdom. It is so incredibly encouraging. I love the mother?s perspective and reflection questions at the end of each chapter. I know this will be...

    If you?re the mother of a son, this book is a MUST read. If you know a mom of a boy, do her a favor and gift her this book. It?s one that I personally will read again and again. So very inspiring and encouraging to see how these eleven moms were diligent to teach, train and pray fo...

    Great book! Lots of encouragement as a mom, not only in continuing to do what we do, pray and teach scripture. As well as encouragement to step it up and pray more and cultivate a love for scripture more! Only bad thing is that the audible version was not great. The reader was mech...

    Shorter book than I thought it would be, but was good to read short synopses of the mothers behind spiritual leaders and the different ways they influenced their kids. Made me hopeful that there?s no ?one way? to shepherd kids, because they all had different strengths or enduring...

    A very enjoyable and encouraging little read! From now on this will be my go to baby gift for moms of boys, however the principles that made these godly women notable apply to mothers of girls as well. Short read but extremely edifying! ...

    Pretty good book. I loved the stories of great moms shaping their children?s lives. It is built off of blogposts so i felt like it could be more fleshed out and not as short chapters but still a worthy buy. ...

    (I listened to this on audiobook.) ...

    Every Mom should read this! ...
