Enjoyable read Jan 12, 2007
Very touching...touches all emotions. I bought three more to share with other family/friends who are mothers. Great choice as a gift for moms whose children are leaving for college.
Perfect for any woman! Mar 18, 2003
I read Beth Moore's book after experiencing two miscarriages and trying to get pregnant for the third time. Her Godly approach to motherhood made me realize that God gives us children as gifts and blessings - regardless if it is for a few months in utero or for decades on earth! She gives a personalized insight on how to try to raise children to love Christ - in a world that often makes that difficult! I would highly recommend this book to any woman - moms, daughters, moms-to-be, or as I was when I read it, a mom wanna-be!
Refreshing and warm feeling Mar 10, 2003
This wonderful little book about Beth and her husband going thru empty-nest made me feel a wide range of emotions. She is a brilliant writer and always amazes me how she can be a faithfull follower of Jesus but still have so much FUN!! What a refreshing christian woman..Buy the book.. you won't be disapointed.. Beth allows you a 'peek' into her private life. If you have taken a bible study that she wrote you will get snapshots of her life.. this book fills in the holes a bit..Great reading!
SO INSPIRATIONAL. . . FOR MOMS OF ALL AGES & STAGES Feb 4, 2002
This is another winner from Beth Moore but very different from her other Bible study writings. This is a more personal look into her own family life and is an absolute must read for any mom. It is written from an empty-nester's point of view, but as a young mom of a two and four year old, I found it so comforting, inspiring and uplifting. I know their time with my husband and me is short, but this book helped me have some perspective. When you have young children close in age, sometimes the days are long and tiring, but this book has helped me see things in a new light. I want to have many feathers to reflect upon when my precious ones leave this nest. Well, blessings to all who read this; I hope it has been helpful, and please do read this sweet book!
Calling all moms! You need to read this book! Oct 26, 2001
As my nest is emptying (our youngest went off to college this fall), I look at those "empty nest" books with a combination of hesitancy, desire to know someone else's experience, and disbelief that I am really at this stage. It seems we just brought our first baby girl home from the hospital (it was only 22 years ago, which often seems more like 22 months!).
I'm thankful to the Lord for my children and for my dear husband - that after all these years, we still have things to talk about, experiences to share, and plenty of love left for each other.
So I opened this book, not real eagerly, I must confess - after all, this was about a book that I really wasn't ready for! The 4-page introduction "Feathers from My Nest" alone is worth the price of this book! Talk about telling it like it is! Mr. Sparrow is talking to Mrs. Sparrow as she's trying to gather feathers from her nest - memories to take with her on their new journey together.
I have to thank this site for making it possible to get a better look inside the books we buy from them - the pages you will see are part of the first chapter of the book AFTER the intro I just mentioned. You'll get an idea of Beth Moore's writing style.
Each chapter talks about a certain "feather" that's been left behind in Beth's nest when her two daughters flew away. One chapter is "The Crumpled Kleenex". Mom spends some time in her daughter's bed after the daughter leaves home and she finds this kleenex and she wonders what the tears were about. "The Binders" talks about one of her daughter's method of proclaiming that she was making a new start with her schoolwork - this chapter has lessons for us all on the grace of God. "The Magazines" chapter discusses the family's struggle with how our society values skinny women and how it impacted one of their daughters and their fight to pull her from the clutches of an eating disorder. And "The Green Cap and Gown" is about graduation, of course.
The last chapter is entitled "One Slightly Gray, Well-Seasoned Man" and is about her husband Keith. A perfect ending for this story of feathers left in their nest. Beth is looking forward to the rest of her life with this wonderful man who was there at the beginning - before there were little chicks to leave feathers behind!
This book is a fabulous book for moms of all ages. Don't think that it's just an "Empty Nest" book. If you have children getting ready to try out their wings, this is a must-read.
I haven't read Beth Moore's other books (most notably "Breaking Free" and "Praying God's Word"), but I would like to.
If you have a child in high school or college, you simply must read this book. My other very-favorite book on parenting older kids is "Give Them Wings" by Carol Kuykendall, which covers parenting from driver's license to leaving home. Excellent book!
