Great Book! May 5, 2010
I love this book. Jill Savage shows you in this book how Jesus understands what you are going through as a mom. She parallels the things that happened to Jesus in his life here on earth with the things that a mom goes through while she is raising her family. I highly recommend it.
must read for moms Nov 11, 2009
I love this book, it provides humor and encouragement for weary moms. Great gift for other moms too. Read just one chapter at a time, to enjoy it most.
Walking the Talk Apr 4, 2009
Many inspirational books aimed at helping moms survive the chaos of the mothering years give fast-food spiritual answers, like a little Bible verse here and there. Jill gets right to the real answer of surviving and even thriving each day of raising a family, and that's to walk with Jesus through a deliberate intake of consecutive Bible reading. That's the strength of this book: encouraging readers to thoughtfully read the book of Matthew to rediscover the Jesus who can help them through the many deep and sometimes baffling issues of parenting. Jill's transparency in believing God for impossibilities (the adoption and blue car stories need to be shouted from the roof top!) add to the book's strength in helping women see Jesus as part of their lives every day. I admire Jill for juggling leadership of "Hearts at Home" whlie also giving her best to her large family.
Moms need more friends like this Feb 19, 2009
This book is excellent. It helps you understand more of who Jesus is and how we can all relate to him as a friend. Each chapter provided such a parallel between Jesus' life and mine as a mom. From serving to sacrificing to forgiving to surrendering, Jill highlights how Jesus' life on this earth mirrors so much of what we do everyday. The chapters on prayer and faith, are very inspirational. The story about praying for bread and milk or even a blue car were amazing examples of faith. I can't wait to get with a group of moms and go deeper with this book as a study. So much more can be taken away from this.
