  • How Mary became a reluctant author of parenting books.
  • Some main points from the Ordinary Mom, Extraordinary God:
    • The importance of quiet space in your life to hear God’s voice
    • The habit of taking a Sabbath rest as a family
    • Intentionally taking the time and noticing God speaking to us in the small moments (and small people!) in our lives
    • Not being too quick to judge our children, assuming the best instead of the worst

  • Keeping a gratitude list as a tool to cultivate thankfulness in our lives
  • Finding ways to keep space in your life for building your own faith and do deep thinking as a mother

Isaiah 30:15–

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says:

“In repentance and rest is your salvation,
    in quietness and trust is your strength,
    but you would have none of it.
