Format: Paperback
Graced and Gifted, subtitled Biblical Wisdom for the Homemaker's Heart, is based on Proverbs 31. It is the second segment of Life-Nurturing Love, a series of 24 Bible studies on marriage and family life. Graced and Gifted is presented in six parts, each with two chapters on a homemaking topic followed by a brief reflection on one of the sacraments.

In Chapter 10 Hahn points out that housework is God's work and that the Proverbs 31 woman provides structure for her own tasks and those of her household. In short, she brings order to her home. Hahn sites numerous Old Testament references to people assigned to "keep" certain areas, such as tabernacles, prisons, and the harem. The Lord calls each of us to be house keepers, Hahn writes. "We are watchful of those who enter, protective of those within and aware that we are stewards of our home." Further topics include homemaking in imitation of God, menial/meaningful work, and an amusing riff on why moms always get the trash. She reveals that to be true in her own family then tells of a Nigerian village whose phrase for "mother" can be translated as "woman who cleans dirt." She then shares her own seven-step process for making a house a home and three techniques for "maintaining the space."

Across chapters, Hahn offers practical advice for dealing with children's emotional and intellectual concerns. One of her boys, aged six, said that he prayed daily that he wouldn't go to hell. She explained that, through Baptism, he is God's child, and God wants him to waken each day "thankful you are God's son, eager to please him."

Back matter consists of a bibliography; notes; and four appendixes: questions for intergenerational women's study groups, key questions for buying a home, making a house a home, and outlines for the video version.

Kimberly Hahn has done it again. This wonderful Bible Study for Women based on Proverbs 31 follows on the heels of Chosen and Cherished and brings the reader in the direction of home making as an act of love. This is so well written that you feel as though Kimberly was sitting with you and chatting over a cup of tea. I look forward to her next book!

It's a great book. I recommend you read it with A Mothers Rule of Life, it's like the soul of the Rule. But Kimberly Hahn's books are great and this book is no different. It has a few practical suggestions but most of it is investingating the why. Yes, we do this because we love or family's but this book takes you deeper then the obviouse answer. I can't recommend it highly enough.

I think the trouble with this book is that not everyone has the driven personality type of Kimberly Hahn. This book, like most studies based on Proverbs 31, contains a lot of potential guilt-inducing pitfalls. I would not have chosen this book but my Bible study decided to use it.

The Catholic information is solid and contains good doctrine. It's an intensive study of a very small portion of Scripture, so don't expect a lot of Bible information here. The focus is on applying Proverbs 31 to the life of a wife and mother.

This book offers mostly practical advice and comes off like it is lecturing you to do more and be more, which I think most busy mom already stress out about enough. I was looking for something that would inspire to be that Proverbs 31 homemaker, not something that would just add work to my to-do list.
