Mitten Strings for God made me think about the importance of the choices that I'm making for my child as well as our family. As my life (and every other parent I know) careens out of control with an over scheduled Franklin Planner....reading this book, I realized I'm creating the same for my children with sports activities/events/birthday parties/playdates etc. There has to be a consequence. When the book speaks of the days of 'our generations youth'....I found myself longing to go back there...to the simplicity and wonder of it all. Realizing of course, that my childs version will be of me telling her to 'hurry up..we're late for the next event'. A great wake up call.......

Delightful, inspiring. Good food for thought. Certain chapters I want to read again and again. I've been encouraged.

I love this book. I have read and reread it. I have shared it with others, and they have loved it too. It has given me a sweet perspective on how to nuture the tender souls I have been intrusted to raise. I am a better mother for having read this book.

Name: Myla Age: 13 moon cycles Gender: Shecat Eyes: They are almond shaped. One is midnight blue and flecked with silver, and the other is silver and flecked withe midnight blue. Because they are so odd, they cause her to get stared at very often. Pelt: Tangled, matted, and uneaven at the moment. When it is brushed and washed, it appears as a mix of grays and different hues of blue and purples. Personality: Distrusting, because of her hard past of betrayals, very quiet, and doesn't talk much. Myla turns away from friendships, partly because she is afraid that they will betray her, and partly because she is afraid for them. She is very independent and determined that she can solve anything on her own. Kits: She is pregnant. Friends: Almost none Enemies: Too many Other: There is a dark secret to her past that she won't reveal.

When I first heard of Katrina Kenison's book, Mitten Strings for God: Reflections for Mothers in a Hurry, I mentally brushed it off. With such a title, I expected the book to proselytize religious beliefs. When the book showed up in my mailbox from the publisher, I picked it up with apprehension, and found I was pleasantly surpirsed. There are a handful of religious references in the book, but Kenison mentions them only in context to her life and never comes out and says anything definitive about what she believes. There is no expectation or proclamation of what the reader should or should not believe. Instead, the book is about simple living or voluntary simplicity. We live in a world that is rushing about in search of something. If we just slow down, we would see that what we are looking for is right here. "Reflections for Mothers in a Hurry" is an accurate description of this book. As mothers, not only is it important that we slow down to enjoy our children in the short time we are with them; it is imperative that our children have the opportunity to slow down and figure out who they are. This is a fabulous book for anyone who wants to cherish their children and live a life of meaning. Take your time reading the book. Reflect on where you are at in life and where you want to be. Cut out the things which are detracting from the life you truly desire. Enjoy! Disclaimer: A copy of the book was provided by the publisher.

I bought the book thinking it would be a help for mothers in a hurry, but really it turned out to be a guide book for me on why mothers should not be in a hurry. Because of this book, our family has gotten rid of TV, have a resident 'Brownie', and tell stories until we are blue in the face. This book has truly changed my life like no other book ever has.

This beautiful book is a MUST HAVE for all parents everywhere...especially moms. Katrina gently awakens in you the realization of what is truly important in the helter skelter crazy-busy world we live in. She advises you on how to help your children grow into whole people. The book feeds your soul and will help teach you how to do this for your children. Don't miss it!

I found this book very hard to get through. I felt she just kept saying the same things over and over and over!
