Useful Ideas Apr 10, 2007
This had alot of useful ideas and I liked the way it was setup. You could read what you wanted and did not have to sift throught anything you didn't need to.
The Christian Mom/Wife/Woman's Idea Book Jan 22, 2002
I checked this out from the library and after reading it I have to buy it (for future reference - as my children grow older). Her godly wisdom and insight reflect on each topic and gives inspiration to women (even if you are not a mom, the first chapter about being a wife is inspiration enough). I intend to buy this for my sisters and all my friends as they begin to have children as well! Thank you Ellen!!

I am Ellen Elwell's son, and I would just like to say on behalf of her and the rest of the family thank you for your comments. I think this book has great potential and can do alot in the hearts of women everywhere.
This book should be called "The Mom's Idea Book." Nov 9, 1999
Through my reading of this book I found many helpful tips on things to do w/ my kids. However, I purchased this book thinking it would center more around the "Christian" part of the title. It doesn't. This is a book for any mom but it fails to address many spriitual issues facing the christian mom.
