...reading "A Mother's Rule of Life" by Holly Pierlot
I feel the need to read this book once a year, and here I am almost exactly a year after I said I'd blog about it... re-reading it again. All I can say is Wow. After the Bible this book has been the single most inspirational book on motherhood that I have ever read. If you're a overwhelmed homeschooling mom struggling with getting everything done, this book will set your priorities straight by directing you toward's God's priorities for your profession (as wife, mother & homeschooler). When our priorities are His priorities our efforts are truly blessed, and everything falls into place. Really! I've experienced it! :) After every few pages I just have to set the book down and mull over it. I have so many "a-ha!" moments I have to take time to process them all... even the second or third time through! You have to know that I'm a woman who normally reads at least two pages a minute. A 200-page book is finished in well under two hours in my hands... but this one takes me a good two weeks to read. Not because it's that bad... but because it's that good!
