Product Description

In these latter days, women are bombarded with the world's standard of perfection: from the perfect body to the perfect home, the temptation to compare oneself to others is a powerful tool of the adversary. For many women, perhaps the most destructive ideal is that of perfection in motherhood—and with the world whispering a woman's inadequacies, Mother's Day can come as an unwelcome reminder of self-professed failures and shortcomings. Abounding with words of encouragement from scriptures and Church leaders, Women of Joy will inspire and uplift as bestselling author Jack R. Christianson tenderly reminds women that the true measure of perfection is not to be found in the standards of the world but in the unwavering example of Jesus Christ.

Satan has taken the JOY out of being a women.

He entices us to feel inadequate if we are not perfect right now...

Perfect body
Perfect hair
Perfect house
Perfect family
Perfect woman

And NO HOLIDAY brings this out more than Mother's Day!

But this is seeing life through a "filter" and not seeing the "big picture."

I LOVE this quote:

"The only scene we can trust is the "whole" scene. We as mortals so often look at trials and sufferings in this life with myopic vision, thinking that what we see in mortality is all there is to see. Without comprehending the whole scene, we are moved to continually ask, 'Why is this happening to me?'"

And this one too:

"I believe we may very likely surprise ourselves when we look back and see with a clear and whole view--not through a glass, darkly--that we did far better than we had supposed."

This booklet shows us that we need to put aside the comparisons and the contrasts of each other.

See the whole picture.

Endure and move forward.

Let Mother's Day and every day be a reason to have JOY in being a women, mother, and daughter of God.

For HE, who matters most, loves you the most :)
