Thoroughly enjoyed this.
There were some formatting issues in the Kindle edition, but not a big deal.

Excellent reminder of what is important in raising children. I didn't feel like I learned anything new- but thought she did a great job of putting vague ideas and knowledge I had into words that clarified it well.

I think this would be a great book for a mom's group to go through. The questions in the back are very helpful in solidifying the learning in one's mind.

I also really loved that she did not belabor her points. She made the point, explained it, and moved on. Made it much more enjoyable to read.

This is one that I will be going back to many times in years to come.

Katie Hoffman's short book offered sound biblical teaching for a mother who desired to model Christ. The goal is to develop godly character. "Godly character is ultimately a genuine, fervent love for God manifested in a person's thoughts, actions, emotions, reactions, and behavior."
I appreciated some of the sound wisdom offered in this book, such as: "If we have installed in our children a natural, healthy fear of consequences, we can parent well by authority when our children are young...But as our children grow older, we parent more and more by encouragement and influence."
Hoffman states that now is the time to connect to our children by smiling at them, listening to them, being affectionate and loving. I wholeheartedly agree with her about leading young children to Christ through repentance and salvation. I believe it is the responsibility of the parents to do this and to model out a Christian life. Children learn by example and parents are the role models.
This is a wonderful book, but not for everyone. It is very limited to a particular group of people, such as, a young Christian mother with very young children. The book should have been called when a young mother with very young children follows Christ. This the audience she is addressing specifically.
The book is short, sweet and concise, but limited. She does not address difficult problems, and offers little advice for people with hard issues like, a single mother who works long hours and is struggling in her Christian walk. A child who is defiant and in rebellion or a marriage that is dysfunctional.
It would be wonderful if everyone came from a loving Christian home with both parents who love God and want to serve Christ. This is not often the case. That is where the book is limited to those who qualify for the criteria, and so it is not for everyone. Hoffman offers sound principles but does not develop it to address hard problems that come with life.

Do you want to have a peaceful home and obedient children? Learn the principles in this book and apply them to your family and you will be well on your way to that peace in your household. I used some of these principles with my older, now grown children, and it made such a difference in our home. Looking back, I wish I had done more of what was said in this book. This book is especially helpful to moms with younger children, as it is easier to train them well from the outset. But the principles CAN be applied to older children as well. If you are willing to exercise discipline in your own life to follow through with your children, you will reap great rewards! An excellent resource!

I found this book helpful and filled with great reminders. I was again convicted of not adequately explaining to my children what was needed to be done and then not following through on discipline every time.

I really liked this book. It's short but very informative. The thing that stuck with me most is how often I really smile at my kids which sometimes isn't a whole lot. It challenged me. I'm glad I got it free on my kindle and will continue to use it as a resource when I need reminders.

This book was excellent! It reminds mothers what is important in this stage of life - raising children. So many of the suggestions were so obvious and yet I needed the reminder that I need to focus on my kids and not my to-do list! Katie gives excellent examples and I love the verses that she includes - I'm going to be memorizing some of them!

I work in an orphanage in Thailand. Staff development is one of the most important things I do. Since most of our staff are women, this book has been an excellent resource. It is short and easy to read. Once I started it, I could not put it down. It has a great introduction and the chapters are well divided. I teach a chapter a week and focus on that particular concept of being a Godly mother. It really stresses developing good relationships with kids and getting priorities in focus. In my experience these are essential parts of raising children. Many of the things in this book are things I was already doing, but it was great to have the thoughts so well developed and clearly explained. It has greatly helped me in teaching the staff at our children's home.

"Dear Christian Woman Who is Trying Her Best to be a Godly Mother,
You're failing miserably. It's a good thing I'm so perfect and can tell you how wonderful it is to have beautiful relationships with your children.
Sincerely,
A Much More God-Filled Mother Than You"

As someone who spent most of my childhood being verbally, mentally and sexually abused I struggle with depression. This book point blank said that if I'm depressed the problem is that I'm not playing with my kids enough and that will make my conscience ill at ease. Well, gosh, I wish I'd known that before I spent thousands of dollars on therapy and medication to help with this phony diagnosis of severe PTSD.

I'm sure Katie Hoffman meant well, but this book is written for mothers who really don't struggle in their daily lives with their Christian relationship or with their mothering skills. The moms that loved it viewed it as a easy, breezy reminder of what they already have embedded in them. This is not a book that really digs into how to be a mother that follows Christ. The books assumes mothers don't get depressed or stressed and are constantly living in rapturous joy over the children God has brought into their life. The reality for most mothers contradicts this assumption. I was really hoping for a book that related to bad days, burned dinners, homework fights, and wondering where God went. This is not that book.
