Book Review: God's Wisdom for Mothers

I was looking forward to reviewing this book. It turned out to be a perfect fit for my morning reading routine. I was looking for something that summarized topical verses in easy-to-read sections. Perfect.

I am pleased with the book. I like the topics they summarized, even the titles of each section is simply a good reminder of what God would like to see in a Mother: wisdom, cheerfulness, patience, joy, compassion, discernment, honor, and respectfullness. I read a little bit each morning along with a chapter from Proverbs, and 3 pages of another book at the moment.

This book is just a collection of verses from the Bible arranged under each topic. Very simple. The verses are taken from the New King James Version. While most of the verses are really nice in this translation, I did compare them to my NIV version, and am not sure ALL are quite as accurate as they could be. Therefore, I'm a little cautious in my reading them without double checking them in another Bible.

I personally am really glad I have this book now, and will continue to read it often. It's a nice compliment to any "quiet time" needs. And for me, as a young mother, it's a perfect fit.

If you think you'd enjoy a book like this, you can find it here on Amazon.
