Book Review

I've been trying to keep up with my daily Bible readings (one of my New Year's resolutions) and the fact that I'm into February and not behind yet is really good for me!

A book that I just finished is a parenting book, Making Children Mind without Losing Yours, by Dr. Kevin Leman. The title intrigued me so I thought I'd pick it up. His advice dealt with what he called "reality discipline," his take on Ephesians 6:1-4. I thought the book was pretty good, and it was pretty much in line with my own parenting philosophy. Now, mind you, I make A LOT of mistakes on a DAILY basis, so I'm not implying that I've got it all figured out. I wouldn't be reading these books if I did! One of his pieces of advice: "Sometimes you have to pull the rug out and let the little buzzards tumble." Now who could argue with that?!

I ought to borrow Leman's book when you get through with it, although I'm afraid I might find that I've already lost so much of my own mind that it's a lost cause! Kudos on the Bible readings. Keeping up is much easier with the Daily Bible, isn't it?

From what I witness you don't need a book, you were meant to be a mother this is for sure!

I pray I can be as patient as you are. :)
