I decided to read this one because I always need more godly help being a good mom, and I have read and watched other stuff by Joyce, and I love her passion for God, and easy to understand voice.
I was pleased with the book, and glad that she used plenty of personal examples as well as scripture to back up what she was saying.
I took away from this one that I needed to trust in God and not on my own strength, but know that if I ask for help or wisdom, that God is right there and he wants to give it to me. I have to trust that he will do that in his ways and time though because I have my own ideas about how He should work, but they are never as perfect as what he has in mind.
She gave some general but also some practical advice, but reminds me that every child and situation is different and no matter how much I want for them to come with operating manuals, they don't. That I really have to be in the word and in prayer and then God can speak to the situation.
My question to you, my lovely readers:
Do you have kids or do you want them?
