My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If you are a Christian homemaker just trying to live a gospel-centered life as best you can, this book is for you! I picked up this little book on a whim and then forgot I had it. After enjoying Mrs. Furman’s essays in Mom Enough: The Fearless Mother’s Heart and Hope, I was delighted to find it buried in my Kindle. I determined to read it immediately and I’m so glad I did. I felt at home the moment I read: “Theology is for homemakers who need to know who God is, who they are, and what this mundane life is all about.” YES.
Theology is for homemakers who need to know who God is, who they are, and what this mundane life is all about. “
This book spoke to me, the exact stage of life I’m in, and the current battles in my walk with God. I was impressed and blessed by the tremendous amount of scripture infused in this book. Mrs. Furman really does present the Gospel in it’s purest form – Gospel meaning “good news” – and how to apply it to homemaking. Although some of the illustrations were a little difficult for me to connect, I appreciated her honesty and transparency. Beyond the “normal” struggles of being a wife and mother of three young children, Mrs. Furman also deals with her husband’s chronic disease, living in a foreign country, sharing her home with her church, etc. with so much grace. Grace being my word for 2017, I found this book encouraging, convicting, and a worthwhile read. I will be returning to it several times in the future I’m sure.
