Moms are busy--and they are looking for methods to manage the madness. From grocery shopping to soccer practice, running a household is exhausting work, sometimes making it hard for mothers to experience joy in the midst of the craziness of life. Pastor's wife and mother of three Gloria Furman encourages women to refocus and reorient their vision of motherhood in this thoughtful aid for frazzled moms. Enabling them to pursue a vibrant and ever-growing relationship with Christ--even when discouragement sets in and the dirty laundry is still waiting to be washed--this book recasts the experiences and tasks of everyday life, showing how moms can actually treasure Christ more deeply no matter how busy they are.

Promotional Information

"These pages are filled with such helpful honesty and gospel centrality as we're invited to look at the wonderful and messy world of motherhood! Reading it was like opening a window in the stuffy room of pretense, guilt, and self-focus that often press in on us as mothers. Let the windows fly open and come breathe the fresh air of grace!" -Kristyn Getty, hymn writer and recording artist "As mothers, our to-do list is never ending, and many well-meaning people pile on how-to lists to try to help us manage it all. Here's good news: Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full refreshes the soul with gospel truths and is not a how-to book. Gloria Furman shares the liberating gospel on every page, helping us fix our eyes on eternity rather than on our circumstances. You won't come away with yet another thing to do; instead you'll know the one who gave it all for you and has much to say in his Word to sustain you." -Trillia Newbell, author, Enjoy; Fear and Faith; and United "Moms do not need another book telling them how short they fall or what they can do to 'be a better parent.' Moms need a book that will lift their eyes away from themselves and onto Christ. Gloria Furman has delivered just that book. Her honesty about her daily struggles and her hope in her strong Savior are a delightful encouragement. The grand picture of God and his redeeming love that Gloria paints gives courage to face each day. We will be recommending this book to future moms, new moms, and moms that have been at it for years." -Jessica Thompson and Elyse Fitzpatrick, co-authors, Give Them Grace "Oh, how I wish I had had a voice like Gloria Furman's to whisper such sweet gospel truths into the frustrations and discontent of my younger mothering days! There's nothing simplistic or syrupy here. This book presents rich and deep wisdom that is sure to generate joy and peace in the homes and hearts of many moms." -Nancy Guthrie, Bible teacher; author, Hearing Jesus Speak into Your Sorrow "A stunning invitation to see Christ in and through the everyday mundane. Every mother needs to read this book, to bathe her soul in the truth of the gospel, to 'stamp eternity on her eyeballs,' and then come back tomorrow and do it all again. This book should sit on every nightstand of every weary mother wondering if there is anything more to look forward to than another sink full of dirty dishes, another day full of cleaning and wiping, cooking and scrubbing. The answer Gloria points us to is Jesus. And he is more than enough. I will be buying this book by the case and giving it away to all the moms I meet!" -Joy Forney, missionary mama; proud wife; blogger at GraceFullMama.com "I was wonderfully blessed by this book. With personal examples and teaching immersed in Scripture, Gloria invites us to savor Christ, the deepest need and joy of every mother. I certainly will reread it and look forward to recommending it to others." -Trisha DeYoung, happy wife to Kevin DeYoung, author of Just Do Something and Crazy Busy; stay-at-home adventurous mother of six "We need this book. In the frenetic and sometimes overwhelming task of parenting, it's hard to remember the gospel. Thank God for Gloria Furman! She helps us worship Jesus in the midst of chaotic commotion and see 'interruptions' as invitations to joyfully trust him. Both mothers and fathers will find deep encouragement here! -Jon and Pam Bloom, President, Desiring God, and his wife
