My sister gave me this book a while ago, and I'm slowly working through it. I love that it starts with a principle, but gives practical day-to-day advice that lives out said principle. Many parenting books just discuss the theories and ideas behind parenting, and you are left to apply them to you... ...more

I was looking for a book on Christian parenting, more interested in ideas for instilling a knowledge and love of God than in ideas for discipline (which is what all the other books I looked at seemed to focus on--good grief, there is more to the Bible than "Spare the rod, spoil the child"!).

Lots of wisdom on being a Godly mother. I found it quite practical. This is not a "parenting" book in the sense that it didn't deal with discipline or handling strong willed children; it really focuses more on YOU as a mother. And after all,y role isn't to ensure that I have Godly children; its t... ...more

It was good. Elizabeth George is my favorite author regarding Christian living as a woman. I just love... ...more

It has some very good points but her way of writing makes me a little irritated. Once you get over her way of writing, you can get the meat of what she is saying. ...more

There are practical tips on how to actually carry out her suggestions, and it is organized well. There is even sections from her husband speaking to moms from a man's perspective, whe... ...more

Every mom should read this book, not matter where you are in the Mommy process. This is an excellent book to read even if you are pregnant with your first. One must keep in mind that Mrs. George has her own homelife and runs her home according to her own personality. The basic principles in this... ...more
