When I got the email with the description about this book, I knew this was a book that I needed to read! I felt as if the authors were speaking directly to me. Melinda and Kathy, are both honest, and encouraging.
This book allows the doors to be opened to examine many approaches of parenting, which we moms are often so afraid to talk about with one another.
I loved this book's emphasis on the idea that "expert" advice may not apply to all, and that as long as we are living according to Biblical convictions, then we have freedom to create our own unique style of parenting based on how God made us and our children.
This is a much-needed message that many people in today's parenting world need to hear. Overall, I loved this book and it is a book worth having on your shelf.
I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I am not required to post a positive review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
