Read full description of the books A Joyful Mother of Children:There were some good ideas and a few gems and funny stories I took away from this book. I laugh a bit at how much of an 80s mom you can tell she is - stuff they did back then that you'd never get away with now! Of course it's nice to hear that her life was crazy too and that she'd yell at her kids sometimes or whatever and they all turned out great.
I think it was a bit overwhelming to me personally how many "systems" they seem to have. At first I was like - oh this is a good idea... then by the end I was like - more systems? More structured this or that? I'm sure with 9 kids that's how you have to be. I just don't know if I'd ever list my day down to the minute or have certain things we do on certain days of the week. I may think differently when my kids are older and I have more to keep track of though. But it did make me think that some lists and goals and structure would be good - especially with the things you want to teach your children. I found myself realizing if you don't think that out and set goals and times for it to happen you probably just realize one day that your kids are grown and you're not sure you taught them what you wanted them to learn.
I did think it was really good for me to see some of her examples of how a faithful family deals with things, getting answers, prayer, that kind of thing. Made me want to step it up a little.
I guess I also just realize no mothering book is going to have all the answers and solve your life like you wish they would! I didn't always love her writing style (but hey, I don't love my own either) and thought some of it was just her telling cool stories about her life and then tying it in to motherhood for a sentence or two. I'd be interested in reading some of their other books though.
