Sufficient Hope is about the gospel. It’s about how the gospel gives hope to moms. It’s about how Jesus’s perfect life, sacrificial death, and triumphant resurrection and ascension intersect with our daily life as moms. It’s about how we as moms can appropriate all that Christ has done for us when our schedules get flipped upside down, when our children are hurting, when we feel helpless in our motherhood, when we worry about our children, or when we feel the weight of “mommy guilt.” In every moment, in every season, and whatever the circumstances, the gospel is sufficient to give us hope.
The book contains seventeen meditations on different circumstances a mom might face in her day. Each meditation focuses on what the gospel has to say to that particular situation. Each meditation also includes a gospel-centered prayer. Sufficient Hope can be read individually or in a small group with other moms.
Here’s what a few readers have said about Sufficient Hope:
“The message we hear as women and moms from the culture around us is that we are “enough.” But that’s a lie. None of us could ever be enough for the difficulties and demands of motherhood. That’s why we need to the good news Christina Fox has packed into Sufficient Hope. We are not enough, but Christ is sufficient! Each short chapter in this book is long on good new of grace to be thought through, chewed on, and rested in.”
—Nancy Guthrie, Bible teacher and author of Praying Through the Bible for Your Kids
“I love the theological richness and practical wisdom in this book. As a grandmother, my first thought was, “I needed this this book when our kids were young.” Then I realized I need this book now to instruct and inspire me to live covenantally by praying for and encouraging young moms.”
—Susan Hunt, Pastor's wife, former Director of Women's Ministry for the PCA, speaker, and author of more than a dozen books for women and children, including Spiritual Mothering: The Titus 2 Model for Women Mentoring Women
"This is for the weary mom who needs a friend to point her to Jesus! Complete with guided prayers and thoughtful questions, this book provides accessible meditations full of lasting hope. "
—Emily Jensen, Co-founder of Risen Motherhood
“Motherhood often brings us to an end of ourselves. The sink overflows with dishes, the longed-for naptime doesn’t happen, and the hearts of our children reveal fresh complexities every single day. Behind every trip to the playground and hand-print art project is a woman who knows her own frailty. But, as Christina Fox so helpfully reminds us, our weakness is simply an opportunity to cast ourselves on the One who is unfailingly strong. With its practical examples, helpful prayers, and rich biblical truth, Sufficient Hope is a gift to mothers. In these pages, both new and experienced moms will find themselves re-oriented away from their own shortcomings and toward Christ’s sufficiency. Moms, take heart!”
