Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Facing the metaphorical empty nest, Beth Moore writes, "The first morning I awakened to a house with no children, my home was quiet, but to my surprise it wasn't empty. Suddenly it felt full. Full of memories. Full of anticipation. Full of love that can somehow go with them to college and beyond, yet stay back home with us. A love that has a name. Jesus." From here, Moore reflects upon all those memories, or feathers, from her nest, showing readers how a smattering of humor and a heavy dose of faith in Jesus helped to shape and guide her mothering. At times the mood is jovial, as she recalls the divine patience it takes to negotiate who rides in the front seat during the after-school carpool. At other times, her tone is tearjerking, as in the time she discovers a wadded tissue in her daughter's bed weeks after she'd left for college. "I had no idea how long it had been there, but I knew instinctively what it meant," writes Moore. "She had been crying ...I held the Kleenex in my hand and wondered what had broken her tender heart." Written as a series of heartfelt vignettes, this sentimental and highly personal book speaks to the lasting gifts of motherhood and why it helps to raise a family within the context of Christian faith. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Review

"Beth Moore's delivery of her family stories is friendly and personal; listening to it is very much like listening to an old friend. Her vocabulary is accessible--at times casual, or even clichéd--and her stories will strike chords in listeners. The shift to children's stories is a bit of a surprise--no transition is provided--but Moore dramatizes them well, taking on different voices for the different animals. The lessons drawn from her family make sense but would benefit from more explanation. Moore is good when explaining how hard it is to accept some elements of her faith-based life, but more explanation of her certainty would support her confident tones well."

Format: Hardcover
As my nest is emptying (our youngest went off to college this fall), I look at those "empty nest" books with a combination of hesitancy, desire to know someone else's experience, and disbelief that I am really at this stage. It seems we just brought our first baby girl home from the hospital (it was only 22 years ago, which often seems more like 22 months!).
I'm thankful to the Lord for my children and for my dear husband - that after all these years, we still have things to talk about, experiences to share, and plenty of love left for each other.
So I opened this book, not real eagerly, I must confess - after all, this was about a book that I really wasn't ready for! The 4-page introduction "Feathers from My Nest" alone is worth the price of this book! Talk about telling it like it is! Mr. Sparrow is talking to Mrs. Sparrow as she's trying to gather feathers from her nest - memories to take with her on their new journey together.
I have to thank Amazon for making it possible to get a better look inside the books we buy from them - the pages you will see are part of the first chapter of the book AFTER the intro I just mentioned. You'll get an idea of Beth Moore's writing style.
Each chapter talks about a certain "feather" that's been left behind in Beth's nest when her two daughters flew away. One chapter is "The Crumpled Kleenex". Mom spends some time in her daughter's bed after the daughter leaves home and she finds this kleenex and she wonders what the tears were about. "The Binders" talks about one of her daughter's method of proclaiming that she was making a new start with her schoolwork - this chapter has lessons for us all on the grace of God.

Format: Hardcover
This is another winner from Beth Moore but very different from her other Bible study writings. This is a more personal look into her own family life and is an absolute must read for any mom. It is written from an empty-nester's point of view, but as a young mom of a two and four year old, I found it so comforting, inspiring and uplifting. I know their time with my husband and me is short, but this book helped me have some perspective. When you have young children close in age, sometimes the days are long and tiring, but this book has helped me see things in a new light. I want to have many feathers to reflect upon when my precious ones leave this nest. Well, blessings to all who read this; I hope it has been helpful, and please do read this sweet book!

I read Beth Moore's book after experiencing two miscarriages and trying to get pregnant for the third time. Her Godly approach to motherhood made me realize that God gives us children as gifts and blessings - regardless if it is for a few months in utero or for decades on earth! She gives a personalized insight on how to try to raise children to love Christ - in a world that often makes that difficult! I would highly recommend this book to any woman - moms, daughters, moms-to-be, or as I was when I read it, a mom wanna-be!

The book is a great pick me up to remind all moms what will be left behind if we are careful to keep the little things intact. It will make you laugh a little and also cry. Beth Moore is a great individual for letting us in on some of her very own secrets from family endeavors. It makes the author seem more real and up close to us as individuals. I enjoyed it because as a woman and mom, I can see myself inside her circle of heart beats and feel the warmth. She is a blessing. Another book I must tell all Beth Moore lovers to quickly grab at the very first chance is another Christian mom, parenting columnist and author, "Mommy-CEO," by Jodie Lynn. Not only are they strong in comparison towards mother feelings, life and children challenges, but also in sharing their own mistakes and claiming to let go and let God direct our spirits.

I took this book with me on vacation and read it while on the beach. It is a great book about being a parent and seeing your children grow up and away. The book offers much insight into the Moore's personal family life. In one of Beth Moore's other books, "Praying God's Word: Breaking Free from Spiritual Strongholds", you realize that she and her family have had to deal with many family issues or personal crisis. This book looks at those same crises from a different angle by giving the details behind the challenges and explaining how they were dealt with in their family. If you are a Beth Moore fan, you will certainly want to pick up this book. Her family isn't perfect but is an inspiration.

This wonderful little book about Beth and her husband going thru empty-nest made me feel a wide range of emotions. She is a brilliant writer and always amazes me how she can be a faithfull follower of Jesus but still have so much FUN!! What a refreshing christian woman..Buy the book.. you won't be disapointed.. Beth allows you a 'peek' into her private life. If you have taken a bible study that she wrote you will get snapshots of her life.. this book fills in the holes a bit..Great reading!
