The activities are fun and as the month changes I usually check out what sort of ideas Amanda has for the month.
I recommend this book (and her other two books as well!)
The recipes are great, so far I've tried the muffin recipe and the bread recipe, both were very good. I also made the homemade lotion, and I absolutely love it. I was really surprised by that, because I've made a few homemade body products that didn't really work very well, but this lotion was perfect for me. It was easy and fun, my husband and I completed a large batch in 2 hours from start to finish. He's even going to make the picnic roll for our Memorial Day picnic, which I'm thrilled about.
Both authors write with feeling and depth, capturing the precious moments of their lives along with the journey they make as parents. I don't feel that they try to push any of their beliefs on anyone; they are simply sharing the way they live and how much they enjoy it. Personally, I can't help but want to be like them in so many ways. She had a quote in the book that was something like: When I'm faced with decisions each day, I ask myself if doing/not doing something is going to get me closer to the goal of how I want to live my life. Her words motivate me to make a loaf of bread and put off a trip to the store for another day, or to engage my child even when I'm exhausted or don't feel well (pregnancy doesn't help with that). Every time I choose to move toward my goals, most of which happen to be similar to the author's lifestyle, I feel better no matter how difficult my day has been. This book was very uplifting to me, and it's beautifully written.
