Is God "God Enough" for Our Kids?

Rachel Pieh Jones is a wife, mom, writer, and DG blog contributor who has lived in East Africa for the past 10 years. One of her pieces that has generated the most attention, you may remember, was published as a response to the Mommy Wars debate stirred up by a Time Magazine cover article published back in May. Rachel’s response post was titled “Are You Mom Enough?” What Rachel brings to the debate is both a helpful international perspective, and more importantly, a gospel perspective. We recently asked Rachel to share on camera her perspective of these so-called mommy wars, which she did in this 3-minute video.

You can read her original post here, and you will find an index to the entire DG blog series that her post inspired here.
