It's not a bad book if you need help with cleaning or if you have older kids you can get to help out. I really liked the chapter on Proverbs 31. But if you have mostly younger kids, you might not get as much out of it. I found a lot of the ideas to be impractical to implement and wished she had spent some more time focusing on tips for younger families.
I recommend this book to any new wife, even one who does not have children at all because the training would be beneficial to a new wife who is hoping to have a family some day. Before children there is so much more time to devote to your disciplines of managing the home. Thank you for taking the time to read this review. All glory to Jesus. Thank you Kim for this gift to the next generation of women who will follow Christ in our homes.
The only thing I didn't like is how it says quite a few times that you just need to spend your days doing whatever your husband's goals are. This is... not biblical to me. First off, many husbands don't give a rip about what you do in the home as long as they can eat and sleep in peace. Second, I think a more meek woman married to an alpha male with abusive tendencies would drive themselves into the ground trying to "meet his goals" all day long.
Also, she said if you are going to have a meeting with the kids, make sure you tell them you're Dad's Representative there. Or Vice President or something. Um, a mother can have a meeting with her children about something while dad is at work without having to act as proxy.
But if you're buying it NOT for marriage advice but for household advice, I think it's an excellent read.
