Publisher's Summary

For stay-at-home moms, it's easy to view other people's work as more valuable to God, dismissing the significance of seemingly mind-numbing, everyday tasks. In this life-giving book, Courtney Reissig encourages moms with the truth about God's perspective on their work: what the world sees as mundane, he sees as magnificent. Discussing the changing nature of stay-at-home work and the ultimate meaning of our identity as image bearers, Reissig combats common misunderstandings about the significance of at-home work - helping us see how Christ infuses purpose into every facet of the ordinary.

Thank you

In a world where we are bombarded with false images of womanhood this book provides scripture and sociology context to make sense of the task of renewing our minds and not conforming to the patterns of this world.

Spoilers and surprise repentance

I just got Hulu a couple of months ago and began watching The Mindy Project. 10 days ago I began Glory in the Ordinary. Spoilers abound within this book, just FYI. 😉

The book was good, despite any surprise spoilers. Several times I found myself wishing I had gotten a physical copy so I could look at the words I was hearing and really meditate on them further.

I found much encouragement from Courtney on the value of my work which I jokingly have referred to as "an exercise in futility".
I also felt a call to repentance for pride and haughtiness I have felt in my work at home. I am not past it yet, but I will continue to repent as I work toward putting my work in it's proper place, and not creating and idol or misplaced identity out of at home work.
