Whether a new mom or one farther along the journey, you will be encouraged and strengthened in your journey at home. Beautifully illustrated with vintage black and white drawings. ~ Deanne
Mother Culture® is the skillful art of how a mother looks after the ways of her household. With a "thinking love" she creates a culture in the home all her own.
A mother does a lot of taking care, so she needs to take care of herself, too. As a mother is feeding and cultivating the souls of her children, she is nourishing her own soul with ideas, while taking a little time for her own play and creativity. Nourished and refreshed, she keeps growing closer to God and into the Christian woman God is designing her to be.
