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.

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.
