The job of parenthood involves no interview process. There are no applications to file and no requirements to meet. Babies come without warnings or instructions. No one sets out a job description for us--except for perhaps our mothers, who want grandchildren in the worst way. Parenting is a learning process that requires great care and patience.
In They Leave and Cleave, author Terry Trimble Sims offers prayerful, biblical, and practical advice on mothering adult children. Using experiences and memories from raising three children of her own and fostering other children, Sims presents an honest look at motherhood and what it really means as the children become adults.
Sims shares a host of sentiments about motherhood from the perspective of a mother longing to bless her children as they grow, leave home, marry, and have families of their own. They Leave and Cleave helps mothers as they cultivate loving and healthy relationships with their children as they transition to adulthood.
