A Mom Heart and a Giveaway!


As I mentioned last week, one of my biggest highlights of traveling to Relevant {and let’s just be honest, a big highlight of my lifetime} was having the opportunity to meet and spend time with dear, sweet Sally Clarkson.

Shortly after my first child was born (11 1/2 years ago) I received her book, The Mission of Motherhoodand it {along with the Holy Spirit} changed the entire course of my life as a mom.  I saw my parenting as a mission, not one to be taken lightly, and I realized that I wanted to be a fully intentional mother, training and discipling my children for the Lord and His glory. I then read many of her books and loved each one: The Ministry of Motherhood, Seasons of a Mother’s Heart, and Educating the WholeHearted Child 1st Edition {which gave me a vision for homeschooling}.

So, I was beyond thrilled to meet face to face one of my heroes of the faith and a lady I consider to be a mentor to me, through her books, these many years.

I attended an early morning mom’s tea she hosted, and my mama heart was filled.  As we left, she told each of us to pick up one her books of our choosing for free….so I made a beeline for the brand-new and improved version of Educating the WholeHearted Child written by both Clay and Sally! Woohoo!  I started reading it on the airplane ride back and haven’t been able to put it down since.

{This picture is in the airport, enjoying my very last Diet Coke….sigh}

Since coming home, my journal is full to capacity with quotes, wisdom, and instruction from this incredible homeschool book!

Just one little tidbit from the book I’ve been mulling over…

P-pray for your children regularly
A-accept your children unconditionally
T-teach and train your children diligently.
H-honor your children purposefully.

I’m only part way in, and I am completely enamored with this book.  Even if you are not a homeschool mama, I highly recommend getting this book to use in the training and instruction of your kids!

One other thing I want to mention to you is Sally’s upcoming Mom Heart Conferences.  The title is, The HeartShaping Mom- How to Open, Fill, and Hold Your Child’s Heart.  Doesn’t that sound amazing?! I am sad that I don’t live in the States, or you can bet that I’d be at one of them!! I encourage you, if you are a mom who wants to be more intentional in your mothering to do whatever you can to attend one of these conferences! 
And now, I want to offer you a chance to win a copy of Educating the WholeHearted Child.  I have 3 copies to give away and entering is simple, just leave a comment! {giveaway is limited to US residents only, and giveaway will end on Monday, the 27th at 11pmEST}
{just so you know, it probably sounds like I’m an advertising fool for Sally Clarkson.  She didn’t ask me to do this, and other than giving me 3 books to giveaway, I received nothing for this. I just really believe in her heart, her message, and her walk with the Lord, and I feel like mamas need to know!}

    We are in the first year of our schooling journey and this book looks so encouraging. I love that you have such a clear vision of where you guys are headed in this process. I feel like it may take me a long time to gain any sense of equilibrium. But God has been good and we have a lot to be thankful for. Hope you and your family enjoy a great Thanksgiving!

  • Amanda Strate

    I’m new to your blog and honestly have never heard of or read anything by Sally Clarkson. She will definitely be added to my must-read list.

    Sally Clarkson’s books have been on my Reading List for a couple of years now…I’d love to win a copy of this book (and we’re Stateside right now, too!).

  • Tami Rhymes

    I was introduced to Sally Clarkson many years ago when we first began homeschooling. As the years have gone by, and the day to day rhythm has set in, I find I could certainly use a fresh dose of her wisdom. Just the small passage you quoted warmed my heart and made me realize how awake I used to be. Yes, I would love to have a new copy of this book, I think I need it.

  • Erik Hauptmann

    Your blog is so beautiful and I am so glad you talked about this book-that has been my homeschool focus this year is the heart of my kids above all else…and some days it isn’t easy.

    This sounds like exactly the type of book I have been needing! My kids are SO different that sometimes it is hard to tell when you are reaching their hearts! What reaches one totally does nothing for the other! And yet if you don’t do the SAME things they complain about it not being fair! UGH!

She has “fed my soul” and brings hope and encouragement every time I hear her speak or read her books and blog. I’d love to have the chance to win this new edition.

    Hi. I’m in my 3rd year of home schooling my 2 children. My son, 13 is sharp as a tack and mature for his age. I’m having difficulty earning his respect. He is definitely exploring how far he can push and while I have prayed that the Lord would help me to see into his heart, I fail in my response and knee jerk reaction in the moment. Daughter is 10 and on verge of transition age, discussions with her are getting more and more in depth and I need wisdom! I’d love to get this book, looks like a great resource. Thank you. :)

I can imagine the book writen by the Clarkson’s is something I should take the time to find and read to better prepare myself for such an adventure.

    I attended mom heart for the first time this past year and it was so encouraging! I am looking forward to going again in February! I haven’t read any of her books yet but they all look so good and I would love to start with this one if I win! Sally is such an inspiration to me as a mom through reading her blog and her family is a wonderful example of what I hope mine will be as we grow together.

  • Mariannebrown

    Her book Mission of Motherhood also was influential in shaping my view of being a mother “on purpose”. I’ve not read this book yet but it sounds like a good idea to put on my Christmas list!

    i would love to win! Thanks for hosting a great giveaway. :)

  • Carol

    I have just recently come across Sally Clarkson’s writings and have been so encouraged by her. I am a mom of 7 and wish I had read her sooner as so much of my parenting has missed the hearts of my children~Sometimes I wonder, Is it too late for my family? I would love to read this book!

    • Joy

      Oh Carol, It’s never too late. That’s the wonderful thing about our precious Savior. HE is the God of second chances!!

  • Laura

  • http://kanalykoaster.blogspot.com/ kari@thekanalykoaster

    I have been praying about homeschooling. Scared to death of it, yet enamored by it at the same time. I would love to read this book. Every post I read about homeschooling makes me wonder if I should be doing it too.

  • Michelle

    Love Sally Clarkson’s heart. Wish I had known about her when my children were wee little and then I would have homeschooled them. Now I am just praying to hold onto their hearts as they go out into the world. Thank you for the giveaway!

  • Erin

    I have been eyeing Educating the Wholehearted Child for a while and I am so glad you mentioned that this would be a great resource for those of us who are not homeschooling! I read The Mission of Motherhood a year after I quit work to be home with my kids and I can’t soak in enough of Sally’s insight! The Ministry of Motherhood is wonderful as well. I am so thankful for Sally (& their entire family) opening up her heart and promptings to us!

  • Jamie

    I would so love that book! It is on my wish list!

  • http://houghslife.blogspot.com Sarah

    Oh my…I would LOVE this book as I could use some encouraging and vision for homeschooling and training and discipling and loving…well, just about everything involved with raising lots of small children!! Maybe YOU should write a book too using what you’ve learned from her and how to implement it with the missionary life. You know, just a thought! :)

    I recently started subscribing to Sally’s website and haven’t read any of her books but her heart comes through her writings. She is a wonderful witness and example for women in how to walk with the Lord and convey to women everywhere what it looks like to be a godly woman in all that we do daily.

    This book sounds like such a blessing! :)

  • Jennifer Chaney

    This book sounds great! I’m sure it would inspire me as I homeschool my children!

  • sheila

    I have just discovered her thanks to a comment you made about her a few posts back. I am in much need of Godly women to mentor me in raising my young children biblically, so I have begun to follow her blog as well. Her books look really good and I can see you highly recommend them, I’ve been thinking about asking for one for Christmas. Thank you, Joy, for being a mentor to me also! God bless you this Thanksgiving.. (I was a missionary in Chile for 6 years, so I know what it’s like to miss the holiday gatherings, food, weather, etc.. My husband is doing seminary and, God willing we will be going back. I will be praying for you especially over these holidays..)

  • Jen

    Oh, I too love her books and that one is one I have been wanting to read! THANKS!

  • Leslie Steddenbenz

    I love Sally’s blog and it would be awesome to win one of her books. She’s been an incredible source of encouragement in my life, and trust me, I’ve needed it:-) My son is just over a year old and baby #2 is due at the end of March, so while I have a couple of years before we officially start homeschooling, I’d love to start preparing all of our hearts for the journey.

    Joy, As I read your post above I get the same sense of warmth and encouragement as when I read some of Sally’s books, sitting across the table from a friend sipping tea. Your blog will be an encouragement to many. Thank you for sharing from the overflow of your heart and reaching out to bless others.

  • rleewoods

    In my quest to find out how to have my children’s hearts (one is adopted), I found Sally’s book, Mission of Motherhood (at the library of all places!). She explains it like noone else has been able too. I am truly thankful and inspired. I found her through a conference in which my favorite blogger and wonderful writer, Ann Voskamp also spoke at recently. Sally was listed first, so I checked out her blog. I have given thanks ever since! I have three under three, and hope to homeschool. Like you, I think others will be blessed by her book, and have been sharing with friends!

  • Katie

    I have really enjoyed Sally’s blog…in a lot of ways, I relate to feeling unsupported and ‘against the grain’ as she writes she was through many of her mothering days. I would love to attend a conference, but for now, just enjoy being as mentored as I can through her blog. Thanks for sharing her impact!

  • Gloria

    Is it sad that up till a few months ago I had no clue who Sally Clarkson was? Oh but I do now and I love her books. I would LOVE to win this. :-)

    Like Sally felt when she was younger, I feel as though we are alone doing our best to live what God has placed on our hearts and it is not easy. I came across Sally’s blog, and now am reading her book: the Mission of Motherhood. I also bought her devotional. I have been SO ENCOURAGED through her over the past year. Like you, I consider her a much needed mentor. I hope to be able to attend her conference. My biggest passion in life is children, especially those entrusted to my care. Thank you!

    Wow! This book sounds amazing! As a homeschooling missionary living in Nigeria, I look to blogs like yours for the encouragement and fellowship that I miss so much.

    Hello Joy.
    I am new to your blog. I found you through Sally’s blog. I have never met her but think her spirit is just amazing. I’m looking forward to adding your blog to my short list of blogs I read. I have a passion for other moms. I want to encourage as many other moms as God brings to me. I am a wife of a church planter and mom to two precious children. …I would love to win her book. And one question…you mentioned that one of the photos showed your “last diet coke”. Just curious, are you giving up soda? I gave up coke cold-turkey this past summer. One of my best decisions!

  • Aharnish

    Sounds like something I could really use. I home school 3 of my 4 and have to work and not being task driven. I love a good to do list completed more than is healthy.

  • Erin

    I have a borrowed older copy of Educating the Whole Hearted Child and am preparing to begin homeschooling my 8 1/2 year old son in January. This book has been eye opening to me and such an encouragement as I head on this journey. I desire to be an intentional mom, too, and am dreading the day I have to give the book back! I have had the privelege of going to one of Sally’s conferences, and I do believe there are many women out there, like myself, who need Sally to guide as our moms would do if they knew how or were around. She is truly a spiritual mother to a lot of us! Thank you for bringing her into your post.

  • Mary

    I would love this book. I have the Mission of Motherhood and the Ministry of Motherhood, and Sally’s blog is always a huge blessing.

    Sweet Joy, I relate with you as an advocate of all that we have to learn from Sally! How can we learn from her & not want to let every mom know about her resources?! I have all of her books & have read them all, except that I am just making my way through her most recent “Educating the Wholehearted Child.” (read the first one 6+ years ago, I think). I have given each of her books as gifts as well. If I receive one from your giveaway, it will be a gift to another mom!!

I have three children, and while I currently do not homeschool, I would love to glean from her wisdom on shaping a child’s heart, mind, and future. THANK YOU!

    I have appreciated Sally’s books as well over the years! I appreciate her emphasis on discipling our children’s hearts while we teach them. I have other books, but not this one and would love a copy. Thanks for the chance!

    Oh, I LOVE Sally Clarkson too! She obviously loved you as well (read her post about meeting you). Would love a copy of the new revised ETWHC.

    What an encouragement! Some friends and I will be attending Sally’s conference and we cannot wait. It would be really great to win a book!

  • Elise

    Oh, waaah! 334 comments! Well, I’ll give it a try anyway… ;)
    I. love. this. book. I do the same thing, Joy- my journal is FULL of quotes and verses and encouraging words from Educating the Wholehearted Child – and the third edition is amazing in it’s fullness.
    I’d love to give a copy to a sweet friend that is seeking the Lord with all her heart about homeschooling… thank you for the opportunity, Joy!

    I would love to read this version. How lovely for you to have met Sally in person. She looks just as sweet as the things I have heard about her. Thank you for this giveaway!

  • Rebecca M

    I would love to win this book! I am so excited to attend her conference this year, but I have not read this book yet… can’t wait!

  • Terri Lynn Harkness

    Winning this book would be such an encouragement to me! I am a single mom of a 14 year girl. She is such a gift to me- what a joy to raise her up for our Lord. As we start up our homeschooling ‘girls group of young girls 13-17, I’m thinking the insightful wisdom of the Clarckson’ will be intertwined with the discipleship of mentoring these precious daughters. Thank you, muchly for your considering ‘us’ as light bearers of this book! Blessedly Thankful for Sally and all the Joy she ‘gifts’ to us all!! Terri Lynn

    I would love to read this book and need some guidance for sure.

    It is wonderful to hear your young heart thrill with the words of truth. I read this borrowed book years ago, and would love to have a copy of my own. I have 5 grown children and continue to homeschool my younges two who are 16 and 10 years old, completing 26 years this year. May the Lord bless your family.

    I absolutely love the power that comes from mothering intentionally. I would love to read that book!!

  • Renee Parris

    I wonder how many children have been mothered differently because of Sally Clarkson. I so love that lady and I’m glad her blog has led me to yours. Looking forward to getting to know you through your writings. Blessings.
