Reviews - What do customers think about Ordinary Mom, Extraordinary God: Encouragement to Refresh Your Soul (Hearts at Home Book)?
short stories Jan 23, 2007
I want to say (like all the other reviewers) that I too enjoyed this book. It is very reflective. That being said, I wasn't expecting this layout of the book. It is many short stories or short reflections. I was somewhat expecting a "book" to read. I was surprised by this format. I wanted to specifically inform other portential buyers of that fact.
The Best I've Read Aug 10, 2006
I'm a mom and a grandma so I've read a lot of books on motherhood and parenting. This is the most honest,practical, real-to-life encouragement I've come across yet! Mary DeMuth is an extraordinary author! Her 60 devotional writings tug at your heartstrings. Sometimes her personal stories make you want to cry. Other times you simply laugh out loud. This is a "must read" for anyone who wants a good dose of HOPE. And we ALL need that! I hadn't even finished the book before I ordered more for gifts.
WOW!!! Nov 29, 2005
I agree that this is hard to put down. There were several chapters that made me want to laugh and cry all at the same time. Thanks for penning my thoughts so eloquently. I definitely feel understood and encouraged...
Wife and Mother - Can there be any greater future-impacting calling?!? Oct 29, 2005
I have just finished reading this incredible book. My only complaint is that I found it almost impossible to put down. I wanted to use it as a morning devotional, but I could not make myself stop with just one chapter per day. It truly opened my eyes(and more times than not, filled them with tears), to the reality that being a wife and mother IS a ministry in God's work and it comes with a myriad of rewards that we will continue to see through years to come. Mrs. DeMuth becomes like one of your best friends that you can't wait to hear from each day just to find out what she will say. I plan on starting from the beginning and enjoying this "treasure" all over again. Thank you, Mrs. DeMuth, for your obedience to God in writing these words of wisdom and experience. I hope there will be more to come.
What an inspiration! Jun 29, 2005
I just finished Demuth's book and it was wonderful! From the beginning to the final page I smiled, sighed and nodded my head. She has such a talent for weaving words and phrases into a beautiful tapestry of family and faith. I felt included, enlightened and refreshed. I highly recommend it for every mom.
