A Message from Alice Scott-Ferguson
Have you ever winced and wriggled in your pew wishing Mother’s Day sermons weren’t so saccharine, only to chide yourself for such sacrilegious thoughts? As you leave with your red carnation and your kids, have you ever wondered if anyone notices that you are crumbling under a yoke of unattainable perfection and giving way under a burden of guilt? Does anyone notice that you as a woman are a person in your own right?
My purpose in writing MOTHERS CAN’T BE EVERYWHERE, BUT GOD IS is to assure mothers that they are not alone with such questions, doubt, and fears.
In addition to writing from my years of experience as a mother and grandmother, I rely on the Word of God to substantiate my claims and convictions. May the words of this book cause your heart to sing a new song of hope when you realize that, contrary to the old adage that “God couldn’t be everywhere so He made mothers,” the truth is that you can’t be everywhere for your kids—but God is.
