As I started reading, I realized immediately that this book WAS different than any other mom book. This book was how to improve my life, how to draw closer to God and most of all how to have the peace in my life I had been craving for so long. I even sent April an email and said this book should be called The Peaceful Woman because it would be helpful to any woman!
April’s insights and wisdom hit home time after time through out the entire book because she has been on this journey herself. I highly recommend The Peaceful Mom to any woman, whether you are a wife, mom, grandmother or even have no children. If you are on a journey for peace, here is your guidebook.
Another chapter that really impressed me was the one on skewed beliefs. Cassidy tells a great story about how she developed skewed belief from childhood experiences. She offers practical suggestions for identifying those beliefs and how to instill correct beliefs. She has included an excellent chart identifying lies, the truth, and Scripture references.
Yes, this is really a book for moms who want to be good ones but feel overwhelmed by struggles and failures. Cassidy writes that God provides a path for us to live in His abundance and peace. But the path requires that we know God intimately and follow Him whole heartedly. The result is peace in all areas of life. She includes stories from her own life and from others that illustrate how her teachings work in real family life.
I highly recommend this book. Cassidy identifies so many issues in our Christian lives that cause a lack of peace. She also includes a great deal of good teaching and practical suggestions for having a relationship with the Lord, the source of all peace. And for moms? There is also a great deal of wise parenting teaching too. This is not a read it and forget it kind of book. There is so much good and practical teaching in this book, though I am not a mom, I'll return to the concepts again and again.
Food for thought: “My goal is that my entire life and every motive and priority be completely built on Christ Jesus and His truth alone.” (71)
