Don't Make Me Count to 3

Moms of America - this book is for you! Do you find yourself threatening, repeating your instructions or raising your voice in an attempt to get your children to obey? Are you discouraged because it seems you can't just reach the heart of your child?

There are three main things that God tells me to teach younger women:
1. how to love (be fond of, adore and serve) their husbands,
2. how to take care of their homes (prepare nutritious meals, keep order, create sanctuary), and
3. train their children.

Older women are supposed to teach the younger women how to love (adore and serve) their husbands, take care of their homes (prepare nutritious meals, keep order in the simple home as well as establish the simple home principles, create sanctuary in the home and the master bedroom.

Older women are also supposed to teach moms how to train their children. And, since, I suppose I fall into the category of an older woman and I can't teach all of you . . . I want to recommend my very favorite child training book (which by the way moms are to train their children and serve their husbands - NOT train their husbands and serve their children).

Through personal experience and the practical application of the Bible, Ginger Plowman not only encourages but equips moms to reach past the outward behavior but to dive into the issues of the child's heart.

Lylah, I've read this book and it is so helpful! I'm glad you posted about it!

I've been talking a little about "the ordinary" things that we do as moms day in and day out on my blog. I was wondering, would you mind if I mentioned you? You have some great insights into motherhood here. I would love to share them with my readers.

Let me know what you think.
