This is the best book I've ever read with my Christian mom's book group.

She has a lot of wonderful ideas about getting organized, involving the kids in house chores, and ways to save money.

The chapters are short and easy to read, and Savage writes in a very conversational tone.

Format: Paperback
My Heart's at Home by Jill Savage is a terrific devotional for moms. It's about being an intentional parent rather than always parenting by the seat of your pants (like I do). The book is set up in sections like Home as Museum, Home as Church, Home as Pep Rally with each giving great ideas on how to make your home a loving, nurturing environment for the entire family. The chapters are short and easy to read, and Savage writes in a very conversational tone. She quickly admits her own shortcomings and gives advice for trying to rise above them. Some of the advice is common sense, but it's stuff that needs to be said again and again until it sticks. I like the idea of planning rather than always dealing with the situation of the moment. Savage looks at every occasion in life as an opportunity to teach her children and show how much she loves them. It doesn't get much better than that!

This is one of those "I-wish-I'd-had-it-to-read-twenty-years-ago" books about mothering. As the mother of two young adults, I've traveled the years of motherhood that Jill addresses. I was glad to find a kindred spirit in her counsel for mothering and was delighted to learn that she, too, has a "God story" box (for knickknacks that represent spiritual signposts). Warm and practical, filled with personal stories, it's well organized around the big picture of a home's higher functions (i.e. "safe house," "rest area," "pep rally," "business office," and so on). Wherever you are in your parenting journey, consider buying this book. It would make a great gift for women just starting their mothering years, too.

Jill Savage wrote about specific ways to be an "intentional" mother that our family needs. She has a lot of wonderful ideas about getting organized, involving the kids in house chores, and ways to save money. It's a fast read that makes me think about doing things differently so I can spend more quality time with my kids and husband. Definitely a worthwhile read!

This book encourages you to focus on creating a home that address all the needs of your family and to turn your heart towards home! So many women these days search for fulfillment outside the home and so end up expending all their energy running the roads instead of at home, with purpose for their families benefit! This book has encouraged me to see the purpose for my investment in my family!
