Where are you in the journey of motherhood? Are you a new mom struggling ^to redefine the boundaries of your life among a sea of diapers, feedings, and sleepless ^nights? Have you been a mom so long that you've lost yourself along the way and ^you long to know your reach goes beyond carpools and chore charts? Do you understand ^it's your job to teach your children about spiritual principles but struggle to ^know how to connect in the chaos? Are you a young woman who's not sure you want ^children but secretly suspect that the world's not telling the whole truth as it ^teaches that womanhood is about living like it's all about you?


 


I'm ^looking for a few good moms. Moms who will dare to hold on to a view that seems ^out-of-date and search for God's heart on the issue of motherhood; moms who are ^willing to see past the endless list of mothering responsibilities to see a bigger, ^more eternal picture. I'm looking for women who will stand up to the culture and ^re-claim motherhood as a high and holy calling.


 


I'm looking ^for you.



Motherhood is under attack. Nearly one in five American women ends her ^childbearing years without having borne a child, compared with one in ten in 1970. ^In 2007, among Christians, 47% felt that the roles of marriage and motherhood should ^not be emphasized for women. And unfortunately, the church isn't talking ^about why motherhood matters, nor is it equipping young mothers to see their family ^as a mission field. Erin Davis was a young Christian wife who had made the decision ^to not have children. She had multiple degrees, a great husband, a promising career ^-- she had it all -- at least according to cultural standards. But most days she ^felt anything but fulfilled. In Beyond Bath Time Erin shares her journey ^to the place of true fulfillment in responding to the call of motherhood. Women ^will be challenged, convicted, and wonderfully encouraged by Erin's honest and provocative ^look at motherhood and its divine call.

What others are saying about Beyond Bath Time: Embracing ^Motherhood as a Sacred Role


"My family does not come before ministy. ^My family is my first ministry. Erin's book is a reminder to all moms that ^raising children well and with joy is ministry and the single best way to reach ^the next generation with God's truth." -- Josh McDowell, bestselling ^author and speaker


"In a 'childless by choice' world that measures a woman's ^worth by her contribution to the paid workforce, motherhood is all too often set ^aside or given second-class status. But look out . . . here comes Erin Davis! She's ^on a mission to show you that motherhood matters, and that being a mom might just ^be the most important thing you'll ever do. If you're a Gen-Xer, who's swallowed ^the pop culture Kool-Aid, you need to read this book -- and consider if the hand ^that rocks the cradle does, in fact, rule the world!" -- Mary Kassian, author ^of Girls Gone Wise


"Authentic. Warm. Inviting. Practical. Insightful. ^Penetrating. Biblical. Beyond Bath Time is all that and more. Erin is a ^fresh, clear voice with a timely message, developed in the laboratory of life, with ^God's Word in hand. She challenges women to reclaim motherhood as a high, holy, ^and purposeful calling -- a sacrificial vocation with eternal rewards!" -- Nancy ^Leigh DeMoss, author, host of Revive Our Hearts radio


"At the ^end of the day, how do you know you've been a good mom? Whose idea of motherhood ^are you trying to live up to -- yours, your friend's or God's? Can you be a fulfilled ^follower of Christ in your role as an everyday mama? Our friend Erin has taken on ^these questions and more in this insightful and captivating read.She has ^brought to light truths that will impact you and your family for life. Thank you, ^Erin, for challenging us even in the seemingly mundane, to capture a big vision ^picture of motherhood. Motherhood matters because it is the heart of God." -- ^Wes and Carrie Ward, just an everyday dad and mama, and Revive ^Our Hearts' senior director of media (him!) and author of Together: Growing ^Appetites for God (her!)


"What we often encounter about motherhood seems ^to be a caricature of real life. Either it's the unattainable super-mom of the advertising ^industry or the unbelievably inconvenienced cranky mom of sitcoms. Fortunately, ^Erin Davis gives us a real portrait. But more importantly, she doesn't stay grounded ^in the daily experience of our lives here. She points us to the eternal purposes ^of motherhood -- purposes that all women share, whether or not we've actually given ^birth. Read this book to be encouraged, strengthened, and committed to God's wisdom ^in the beauty of motherhood." -- Carolyn McCulley, author of Radical ^Womanhood: Feminine Faith in a Feminist World and Did I Kiss Marriage Goodbye? ^Trusting God with a Hope Deferred

"I love how Erin lays out the big ^picture for moms. She lifts the curtain to see beyond the piles of laundry and provides ^a peek into the sacred. Erin challenges you to live beyond the daily monotony that ^threatens to suck the joy from motherhood. Beyond Bath Time beautifully ^portrays motherhood's sacred calling but doesn't sugarcoat the hard places. Erin ^speaks as a mom who doesn't have all the answers, but is learning how to mother ^with joy. She hands out good doses of practical help and encouragement while inviting ^mothers to join her in the high and holy battle." -- Kimberly Wagner, author ^of Fierce Women:  The Beauty of a Soft Warrior (September ^2012)





A popular speaker, author and blogger, ERIN DAVIS has addressed ^women of all ages nationwide and is passionately committed to sharing God's Truth ^with others. She is the author of several books including Graffiti: Learning ^to See the Art in Ourselves, True Princess: Embracing Humility in an All About Me ^World, The Bare Facts with Josh McDowell and Beyond Bath Time: Embracing ^Motherhood As a Sacred Role. Erin's quest for the perfect scoop of ice cream ^is never ending and her family is her constant source of entertainment.


"At the end of the day, how do you know you've been a good mom? Who's ^idea of motherhood are you trying to live up to -- yours, your friend's or God's? ^Can you be a fulfilled follower of Christ in your role as an everyday mama?
