Mothering From Scratch
A guide for finding your OWN mothering style. Sometimes we get good (and bad) advice from all sides as well as a whole host of expectations from ourselves and the people around us. What we, as mothers, need to find is the mothering plan that works for us and gives glory to God. These authors, Melinda and Kathy, provide a roadmap. Each chapter, from the welcoming beginning to the ending admonition to depend on God's power, will mentor you toward that plan. Full of practical advice as well as continuing reference to God's Word (periodic "Lovin' Spoonfuls"), each chapter ends with a set of questions (Stirring Your Thoughts) and a call to application (Let's Get Cookin'). 205 pgs, pb ~ Janice
