Format: Hardcover
Poetry isn't a genre I'm naturally drawn to, however, I remember reading and loving Carol Lynn Pearson's poetry when I was a teenager, so I decided to give this on a try. I usually hold my feelings in close and it takes a lot to get into my heart--this book had no trouble. The Sweet, Still Waters of Home particularly touched me on many levels. Carol beautifully takes each phrase of the 23rd Psalm and though her poetry helps us to see how this psalm is a pattern for mothering our sheep. Because my one child struggles to find his way, Carol's first poem went right to my heart. I had to read more.

Format: Hardcover
`The Still, Sweet Waters of Home' is a contemporary and multi-layered look at the 23rd Psalm. Each line of the psalm is ingeniously made into the title of a poem. Every poem is a continuing message from a mother to her child (or children); it begins with background information on how a shepherd treats his sheep, then continues with how the mother treats, or wishes to treat, her child. I found it very calming and sweet. Even though some of the aspects of the poetry are a bit `cheesy' (does `partially hydrogenated vegetable oils' really belong in a poem?), it does in the end serve its purpose: A gentle reminder to mothers that we are shepherds to our children while still relying on The Shepherd. This is a lovely little treasure that you can pick up and peruse at any time just to keep yourself on track, or give as a gift for a mom-to-be. Overall rating is 4 out of 5 stars.

Content Review:

PROFANITY: None

VIOLENCE: None

SEXUAL CONTENT: None

MATURE THEMES: Mild

RECOMMENDED AGE GROUP: 18+

There is nothing at all unclean in this little book. The only reason I put a mild mature theme is due to the fact that the whole theme of this book is mothers caring for their children. It would probably not be overly interesting to a younger crowd. If they're interested, there's no reason they shouldn't read it (content-wise), but I would recommend this as a Squeaky Clean Read for ages 18+.

Ms. Pearson ranks right up there with Viorst.
A wonderful premise. Her words always reach into the deepest part of my soul

I am a great fan of Carol Lynn Pearson's poetry--and this is a moving and lovely book based on the 23rd psalms about family and relationships.
