Here I am again...

...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!

Oh... I'll have to check it out!

Just wanted to stop by and ask if you'd like to remain on A CLEAN HEART Forum. We'd love to have you stay, but ask that everyone makes at least one post. We do this to keep our forum as safe as possible.

Thanks so much and I hope we see you there!

Hey, I've never heard of this book, but I'm definitely going to get my hands on a copy now! Thanks Heather! And I'm putting you on my blogroll, so speak up if that's not okay ;o)

ALSO I hadn't been here in a while and I want to say that I LOVE the new look!

Thanks for your comment on my blog, Heather. I have been thinking of you lately as the months turn into a year of ttc for me. You handled it with such grace. I just wish I was a little younger.

This book sounds like a good one! I have a Barnes and Noble gift certificate and I will be using it to buy this one!
