From the Inside Flap
Motherhood and homeschooling had overwhelmed her. The house was dirty, the laundry undone. Holly felt frustrated, discouraged, and alone. She couldn't find time to snuggle and have fun with her five children or to go out with her husband. Yes, she loved Philip and she did love God, but she had come to resent Philip's freedom and she almost never found time for prayer.
Today, everything's better.
Holly still homeschools, but the house is cleaner, she gets more done, and the kids are happier. There's less stress, less strife, and less housework. Holly's been healed of past wounds that troubled her soul and her marriage. Best of all, she spends at least an hour each day in prayer and time each evening with Philip.
Holly brought about these changes with what she calls her Mother's Rule of Life, a pattern for living that combines the spiritual wisdom of the monastery with the practical wisdom of motherhood.
Holly's Rule is not just another set of schedules; it's a way for Christian mothers to answer God's call to holiness.
With the help of your own Rule, you can get control of your own household, grow closer to God, come to love your husband more, and raise up good Christian children. In these wise and practical pages, Holly shows you how.
Do you want to be a better wife and mother? To have more order in your life? To grow in union with God? Are you desperate yet?
With your own Mother's Rule of Life, you'll transform motherhood and its burdens into the joyful vocation it's meant to be. Learn from Holly Pierlot how to craft a Rule that's right for you and your family. Then use that Rule to help God draw you, your husband, and each of your children into Heaven!

Once the book is actually cracked and begun, the reader discovers a soul-mate in Holly - a good-hearted woman with oats to sow, with sins to confess, and an aversion to constraints. Like most mothers of orderly households, there is the breadth of humanness, from self-absorption to heroic generosity and everything in between. Most importantly, like any radical alteration, she had to really want to change.
For my children, I've defined maturity as "doing the right thing for the right reason." As I age, I've seen more and more that people often do the right thing for the wrong reasons. For example, it is entirely possible to see to your children's hygiene, your house's spotlessness, and your family's punctuality for the sake of human respect. We all succumb to considering "what others think of us" to some degree, and yet there is an inverse response - to flout convention for the sake of "not going with the crowd," or (especially with women) to be mired in a perpetual "passive-aggressive mode" with our own dear mothers.Read more ›
I think every Catholic mother could benefit from reading this book. Every Catholic mother could benefit from instituting her own "rule" of life. I wish I could afford to hand these out to every mom who walks in the door at Church!
