Loving the Little Years: Motherhood in the Trenches
Loving the Little Years is a bestselling book of thoughts for mothering young children. It's written by a mom, for you moms -- for when you are motivated, for when you are discouraged, for the times when discipline seems fruitless, and for when you are just plain old tired. When you're a mom, the opportunities for growth of character, maturity, and enjoyment abound -- but you have to be willing. You have to open your heart to the tumble of mothering, even when you're waist deep in the trenches of unfolded laundry and sick kids and no sleep. Here's encouragement and advice from Loving the the Little Years: As you deal with your children, deal with yourself always and first. This is what it looks like, and feels like, to walk as a mother with God. A note from Rachel: "I didn't write this book because mothering little ones is easy for me. I wrote it because it isn't. I know that this is a hard job, because I am right here in the middle of it. I know you need encouragement -- because I do too."
