This book is SO GOOD!
This is a book you need to read...and then ponder...then read...and ponder...read and ponder..and then when you have finished the book you need to start again and read and ponder some more...there is so much AMAZING INFORMATION and HELPFUL IDEAS you just can't get it all the first time :)
I so wish I had know more of this when I was a mother of younger children.
But the beauty of motherhood is that it is never too late. I can still teach my children and I can still put into practice these wonderful ideas....
And I can have Peace even when I feel that I am falling to Pieces :)
I LOVED the puzzle pieces concept:
Puzzle Piece #1 - Be a Mother of Purpose
Puzzle Piece #2 - Be a Mother of Skill
Puzzle Piece #3 - Be a Mother of Work
Puzzle Piece #4 - Be a Mother of Faith
Puzzle Piece #5 - Be a Mother of Wisdom
Puzzle Piece #6 - Be a Mother of Joy
Puzzle Piece #7 - Be a Mother of Peace
DON'T WORRY - SHE TEACHES YOU HOW!

Her greatest loves are her husband, Francis, their three children, and writing— in that order.
