Booking It: Finding Your Purpose As A Mom

This month, I decided to join Life As Mom in her Booking It 2011 book of the month: Finding Your Purpose as a Mom: How to Build Your Home on Holy Ground by Donna Otto.   I tell you I all but devoured it over Holy Week.

It was the perfect mix of inspiration and practical application.   I so totally want to read it again.   Slowly.   And work through the questions at the end of the chapter.   But I have to finish my other studies first.  I just don’t have time for another right now.   Maybe in the fall — anyone up for that?

Anyway, the thing that I loved the most is that it was so personal and she didn’t try to bully you into doing certain things.  I’ve read books by Elizabeth George and I get this laundry list of things I NEED to do.   You don’t get that with this book.   She gently leads you and suggests things that are important but doesn’t give you a must do list and timetable on which to do them.  I like that, because I hate being told what to do.

Anyway, I totally adored this book and hope someone will host a book study :).   If you do, let me know!!!!   If not, I guess I’ll do it myself later this year :)

Have you read this?   What did you think of it?
