/ -- "If we could start over with the accumulated understanding of our mothering years, we would do in our own families the things you'll find in this book. For starters, we'd store the toilet paper on a high shelf."
The authors give insight and inspiration to those following in their footsteps. Thrive and Survive, Zero to Five, 2 Sisters, 14 Children, and What We Wish We'd Known from the Beginning provides hope and help to women who find themselves in the trenches of motherhood. Offering anecdotes on their personal experiences of what worked well and what failed miserably, these sisters have become cheerleaders for young moms who are working hard at the most important job on earth.
Each chapter begins with a Bible verse, and the authors switch back and forth sharing stories relevant to the topic at hand. For example, you'll learn why you might want to let your child eat soap, or how to spoon out enough sugar to make your home a happy place. You might wonder how to do everything that needs doing, so this book answers that question and many more. With honesty, vulnerability, and sometimes hilarity, Mary and Margaret will have your frown turned upside down in no time.
Each chapter ends with scriptural wisdom as well as a suggestion of one thing a busy mom can do that day to relieve stress. For instance, "Hug your child when he least expects it." The authors then give a short list of things they wish they'd known when their children were still little.
Because there are no mommy do-overs, this book helps mothers do their job with excellence the first time through, while also finding delight in every day. ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
Margaret Johnson Nyman and Mary Johnson Peterson each had little ones (babies, toddlers, preschoolers) for twenty-plus years straight. Now that their children range in age from twenty-something to their late forties, these sisters have found time to mentor younger moms who are just getting started.
Before becoming a stay-at-home mom, Mary obtained two degrees in nursing, while Margaret pursued an education in writing. Margaret is the author of two other books, Hope for an Aching Heart and Prayers for a Widow's Heart, as well as numerous magazine articles. She blogs at www.gettingthroughthis.com.
