My Review: 4 out 5
Rather than trying to say that there is one way or another that a mother should be, and a perfect mould that we all have to fit, it highlights and emphasizes the fact that there is no wrong or right way to be a mother. To be a good mother, all you have to be is you.
What’s more, given the Christian perspective, it is demonstrated how a woman can let go of her hang ups and focus on what really matters, and through Christian principles, become more than she could have been otherwise.
For all mothers out there, go ahead and pick this one up sometime. I highly recommend it. It will give you the little pat on the back that you need, letting you know that you are really not doing such a bad job afterall. You can do it.
I was given a free copy from Litfuse for an exchange for my honest review. Thank you.
