Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I really like having one of those easy-to-read books that I can throw in my purse to pull out during those times you find yourself waiting somewhere. This is one of those books. Each chapter is filled with very practical advice and insight into being a mother. I really enjoyed Angela's stories of being a mother in her own home. She has some great wisdom to share from being a mom to four children. The best thing about this book: Angela keeps God the focus of her advice. I would highly recommend this book to any mother to read.”

I was looking forward to this book because as a mother of 7 wonderful kids I know that no matter how hard I try there is always more I can do. I do feel spread awful thin sometimes and know that I can't always give each of my kids individually what they need from me. I love the way Angela lays this book out. She has 52 wonderful topics and ideas that give me as a parent something to shoot for. Some of them affirm me that I am doing something right. Some of them give me some great ideas to work on. None of them made me feel condemnation for not being perfect. This book is an excellent way to take one chapter a week and work on the little things that can make a big difference in your children's life. Excellent book!

I really like having one of those easy to read books that I can throw in my purse to pull out during those times you find yourself waiting somewhere. This book is one of those kind of books with each chapter contained to one subject. Each chapter though is filled with very practical advice and insight into being a mother. I really enjoyed Angela's stories of being a mother in her own home. She has some great wisdom to share from being a mom to four children. The best thing about this book, Angela keeps God the focus of her advice. I would highly recommend this book to any mother to read.

Anything by Angela Thomas is worth buying and reading! I gave this book to my 3 daughters for Christmas. Each of them have young children. I hope they read this book and I hope I gave them as my children 1/2 of the things Angela has suggested. I also purchased for my niece who is a new mom.
