Wonderful

I had heard many friends recommend this book but didn't think it would be something I could relate to but I was clearly wrong. It hit home more times than I'd like to admit. Well worth it.💕

Inspiring content for anyone

This book is an excellent reminder as to the fragility of our spirituality. The author takes you through her life as mother and wife and how she struggles and works at her prayer life and the balance between time for God and time for her family.

Must Read!!!

This book is life changing. I have enjoyed every chapter and I can't wait to share it with others. I plan to do a ladies small group on it.
It's mind transforming with the right amount of encouragement and challenge. What a refreshing view of day to day life and the importance of knowing God intimately.

Loved the honesty

This author wrote from a place of honesty about her shortcomings, her lack of perfect practices (including housekeeping skills - THANK YOU!), and struggles with her faith, and really encouraged me that I can start where I am and that God will meet me there. Really enjoyed it!

Didn't read every paragraph

The narrator had an excellent voice would like to see her read the whole book.
