About the Author
Jamie Martin is the voice behind the inspiring blog SteadyMom.com and the editor of the blog SimpleHomeschool.net.

The ensuing challenges (and occasional chaos!) sent Jamie on the lookout for ways to parent with purpose and professionalism. The practical tools and ideas in her book, Steady Days, are the result of that effort. Currently Jamie spends her days with her little people growing, exploring, and learning together.

I found this to be a light and quick read, with short and concise mini-chapters (similar to her blog posts at [...]) that were easy to read in a few minutes here and there -- great for a busy mom. For me the most useful parts were about scheduling and routine building, and organization. The parts on staying inspired and maintaining enthusiasm were less interesting to me, personally, maybe because its just not my style. But the book was still well worth the price for me, despite that. I feel like I am now armed with a lot of new ideas I am excited to try!
