Love to read it again and again! Sep 23, 2008
I found this book by accident one day, and I have treasured having it ever since. I love the encouragement, and the fun ideas/activities to share with my family. Not every mom/wife is Dona Reed, and it is a nice reminder that it's OK not to be. The daily devotionals and prayers were also helpful and enjoyable to read. Soon, I would like to begin a woman's study around this book for my church family. I know that other women would appreciate it as much as I have!
Modern-day Bombeck Lightens the Load Sep 2, 2007
Lynn Bowen Walker, like Erma Bombeck, takes the mundane challenges of raising kids and puts such a spin on it that you can't help but smile...but be happy where you are. A fun--and funny--read.
Fabulous!!! May 22, 2007
This is such a great book!! Funny, encouraging, insightful...just down right awesome! I look forward each Sunday to reading the chapter of the week. This book will make an excellent gift for my fellow mom-friends. The author is so real and SO easy to relate to. Love it!
My Kind of Mom Book May 19, 2007
Though admittedly not a contender for the homemaker of the year award, Lynn is my kind of mom. Someone who is not afraid to admit she may not have the cleanest house, but through her personal stories it's easy to see her heart is in everything she does.
Lynn's down-to-earth, writing style made me feel like I was sitting down with a good friend, sharing stories over coffee. She's a real mom with practical tips easy enough to implement. She made me feel good about not being Martha Stewart or June Cleaver.
Though the chapters are planned to be read once per week for the entire year, the table or contents makes it easy to find just what I'm looking for like the chapter on "Trippity Doo-Dah: The Family Vacation." Whether I need a quick and fun holiday craft or recipe, tips for getting more organized, encouragement for the stress and busyness of family life, or a fun quote or word of the day, Queen of the Castle has just what I need to make it through the week.
It might be just what you need too!
Queen for the Castle May 15, 2007
This book is a light look at motherhood, yet has good inspirational and motivational parts regarding our spiritual walk. It helped release a lot of guilt for me regarding a "clean house" and had ideas on how to spend more time with the Lord. Not only that it even has good craft ideas as well as some good receipes I used.
