If you are married with family ... probably OK

I was disappointed in this book. If you are a young married woman with kids, I would recommend this book to you. However, for the rest of us, including an older widow like me, this book left me feeling like an outsider. The author is sharing what she knows and she knows her life as a Pastor's wife with a growing family. She tells that part of her story well and I think she has many good thoughts and recommendations. However, Michaels doesn't seem to be able to find language and a sense of inclusiveness to expand beyond her narrow demographic. Too bad, because the core theme of making a home/nest/refuge from a place of sufficiency and creativity is a powerful and deserves "air time."

This book is a gift

I purchased this as a Kindle book several years ago on Amazon and loved it so much I went back for the hard copy. I have been waiting for it to become available in an audiobook format so that I could absorb its inspiration even further and am thrilled to have found it here at last! I have to fully (respectfully) disagree with the last reviewer. I am 51 years old, have never been married and have no children and yet this book has been such a gift to me in changing how I view my home and the possibilities therein. I have struggled most all my life with my homemaking skills and abilities. This is the first and only book that has ever truly motivated me at a heart level and that has given me the encouragement and belief that I could have my home be everything that I want it to be. I am not there yet but this book offers an abundance of hope and suggestions and compassion and a friendly "yes you can!" for anyone who needs it, whether they live high on the hill or down in the hollow. I cannot recommend it more highly and would recommend those in doubt to check out the reviews on the amazon.com website that are full of praise and acclimades. A truly wonderful book no matter what your faith or family status.
