Editorial Reviews

Review

"A seasoned Christian author reads her thoughtful and well-organized book on how mothers can use God's love, their own nurturing instincts, and lessons from the Bible to raise their children. While her frequent use of biblical quotes threatens to overplay the idea of dependence on God's higher authority, she balances this tendency with careful consideration of a more ancient, and women-centered, brand of mothering. In spite of what sounds like her fundamentalist Christian moorings, she gives credit to women's innate wisdom and the powerful lessons that women have passed on to their daughters for eons. This innocent, beguiling lesson is hard to dislike even if fundamentalist Christianity is not your faith."

As with all of Elizabeth George's books, A Mom After God's Own Heart is a solid, practical, and very BIBLICAL look at what it means to be a woman who seeks the Lord. This book is filled with excellent application for a mother's day to day life, yet succeeds in dealing with "heart issues" rather than just being a "to-do list." I was encouraged and inspired by this read.

First off- this book has great reminders of how to be a great mom and a constant witness. Great ideas for the everyday and has a very encouraging uplifting 'tone' to the book.
But here is where I'm completely frustrated: The writing is awful. I'll read through a chapter and find that I'm rereading the same section over and over and over and I'm just confused. The author uses parenthesis constantly (like this!!), even when not needed (for example). Maybe I am being too picky but beyond the general grammar, the actual substance is, again, frustrating. In an entire paragraph there will only be a single sentence of the authors personal commentary and the rest is filled with random authors and speakers. Some introduced and some not. Then there are whole sections where an example, or rather an analogy, is being used that is so vague or hard to follow that it detracts from the actual point, or the analogy is so poignant and then the topic abruptly switches and the reader is left dangling, confused.
Examples read like this: 'An author said "in a study children were....".' What Author? What study is that author referring to? This author isn't using any of her own deductions or reasoning, she's using an unnamed author to make a point from an unnamed study. I'm sure there are footnotes at the back, but I'm disillusioned from the lack of personal, well, authoring. Also, something that I'm sure is supposed to be endearing, is the style of writing. The author writes like she's giving a presentation or a speech, and then inserts personal talking points to you, most of the time in parenthesis and very distracting.
All that to say: great topic, great ideas, but challenging to follow along and frustrating to read.

I really kind of felt that this book would be better suited for moms of younger children. Not for me a mom with older children. (14 and 11). I liked the book but I felt like the Author repeated herself over and over.

Very straight forward advice in biblical context. The book takes you through 10 Ways to love your children. If you are already a Christian they may seem a little basic. Tips like " take your children to church" and "Talk to your children about God" may be better suited for newer Christians. I used this as a Bible study for Christian moms and it wasn't as helpful as when I used it as supplemental reading for a Bible Study webinar series open to all. The content is good but I feel it could have been condensed quite a bit. For example tip #3 is to tell your children about God while tip #4 is to tell your children about Jesus. I really love the "After God's own heart" concept and I hope it doesnt become less effective with line extensions.

One very interesting portion is the inclusion of "From a Dad's heart" giving the male perspective on each chapter. George also addresses mothers who are raising their children without a father or with a non-Christian father.

This book is a good refresher for Christian moms and a great introduction for mothers new in the faith.

This book could be two or three chapters long. It pretty much just repeats the same thing over again in every chapter using slightly different words. It was good that it made you read scripture and apply it to motherhood but I didn't real

I love anything by Elizabeth George - I feel that she is a mentor to me. I like her writing style and the fact that she is so completely grounded in the Word of God. I really enjoyed reading this book - especially the chapter on praying for your children - it's a must-read for any mom.
