Publisher's Summary

How does a woman build her house? Nancy Wilson begins with the kitchen table, remembering how each scratch and stain in the wood chronicles "hours of stories and jokes, questions and concerns (through courtships and pregnancies), prayers and discussions." She continues, each essay full of stories and encouragement - the beauty of imperfection, the comfort of Velveeta, the strengths of mothers- and daughters-in-law, the honesty that is submission, the laughter of reading aloud. As ever, while Nancy draws out our sins and weaknesses and sore spots, she comforts us with the favor of God and rouses us to a joyous faith.

Another fantastic book by the Wilson clan...

I have rarely read a book so chock-full of good and godly advice and kind rebukes as this. Barely a word wasted, simply practical advice, common sense and biblical grounding throughout, delivered in a tone that is both tender, and speaks with an experienced authority.

My only complaint is that there are a bit too many places where a narrow range of Christian experience is assumed, when I think more care could have been taken to imagine and address different circumstances. One example is when schooling is addressed, it is pretty much assumed that you are either homeschooling or attending private Christian school... And I think the book may lose some of my friends who have children in public school and may feel somewhat affronted by that... Still overall a book I will be recommending to many...
