My Review:
Oh my this book has come to me at a time that I absolutely needed it to. It was a wonderful read, very encouraging and even hilarious at times. The author reminds us throughout the book that we are all different women, each with our own personality and ways of dealing with life, therefore we are also very unique moms. We need to stop comparing one another and just parent the way Christ meant for us to parent our children, not the ways others might want us to. Is it always going to be perfect, easy and fun. Absolutely not, but each step of the parenting journey is one that we are meant to travel as a mom. Christ knows what we need from Him and gives us exactly the kind of children and the wisdom we need! This was a great reminder to me and I am so glad to have read this book!
I think this would be a great gift idea for any mom in your life! 
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
