I've mentioned before that I'm always scouting for good books on parenting, Christianity, children and so on, and when I saw this book's availability on NetGalley, I immediately asked to review it. And, yes, one more book I came to love!
I like that each tips are broken down into 2-3 pages, easy to read and continue on. Below are some of the pages I've bookmarked on my iPad while I was reading this book:
* Page 10 — Being a mom means you might never be alone again
* Page 16 — Never stop touching them. The gift of your enduring affection will become one of the greatest gifts ever give to their souls.
* Page 34 — Jesus said it clearly, "All you need to say is simply 'Yes' or 'No' (Matthew 5:37)." What Jesus meant was, be clear about your intention and don't say anything that you don't mean. Let your word be your promise. And don't embellish your words to try to manipulate your own way.
* Page 35 — Kids need their mom to keep her word because we are training them to be like Jesus and we are building their sense of security, teaching them how to trust in someone who is trustworthy.
* Page 40 — Our kids need us to teach them what to do when we have been misunderstood and misrepresented. They need to see us respond to difficult people and difficult circumstances.
* Page 76 — When we talk to our children at every age like they are fascinating, we are transferring to them a deep security. It's a gift of love that can never be taken away from them. To know that you are adored by your mom is a treasure that gives you strength for a lifetime.
