"Mitten Strings for God"

Have you read this book?

The full title is, Mitten Strings for God Reflections for Mothers in a Hurry by Kenison.

What a sweet book. It ministers to the mother's heart in a very simple way. It speaks truth, compassion, humor and love.

From the inside flap:
Only by slowing down do we make time for one another. Only by stopping long enough to observe our surroundings can we bring shape and meaning to our lives.

In simplicity there is freedom - freedom to do less and to enjoy more.

I can only bring peace to my children when I possess it myself.

The author is like a trusted friend. She shows us how, even in the middle of this crazy world, to calm our schedules and enjoy the quiet times. She uses stories and experience from her own life to teach and guide. Her words are peppered with His grace.

This book would make a great gift for that special woman on your Christmas list this year.
For an extra special treat, you could make a bookmark, using the handprint of one of her children and slip it inside the book?!

I will be sharing a couple other books in the coming days. If you blog, I challenge you to do the same!
