Alice Scott-Ferguson offers a far-reaching grasp of God’s plan for motherhood. Designed to be read on-the-go by busy mothers, this book has something for mothers at every stage in raising, and relating to, their children—a book that enlightens and encourages mothers with the assurance that the God who runs the universe can take care of their children and loves them, even beyond the fiercest mother love.
Read an EXCERPT from the book.
“Scott-Ferguson is a thinking woman who has named the things that get mothers into trouble—hovering, meddling, expecting our children to prove our worth—all in the effort to be a perfect parent. Thank you, Alice, for helping us trust God and let our parenting be about our children instead of being about us.”
− Jan Johnson, author of Growing Compassionate Kids and When the Soul Listens
“Please get this book. Your outlook will change for the better as you experience freedom in Jesus!”
− The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
“The quintessential book on motherhood. I don’t know which is the greater treasure, the wisdom Alice imparts or the lyrical language she uses.”
− Nancy Parker Brummett, author of It Takes a Home, Take My Hand Again, and A Woman’s Daily Prayer Book
“Mothers Can’t Be Everywhere has spoken to this grandmother’s heart. It applied a balm to many of the lingering regrets from my child-rearing years. I wish I had had the book then. Alice Scott-Ferguson’s perspective transcends the traditional and leads her reader into liberty. Simply profound.”
