I have found this book inspirational and helpful.
I loved this book - it is so inspiring to help me be the mother I so desire to be to my children. Jean Fleming is an excellent writer, who has lived what she writes. Reminder of values, vision and character (as the title indicates) that is most important to instill in our own hearts and exemplify to our children. Has been life changing for many friends.
From the back cover:
BECOMING THE MOTHER YOU WANT TO BE.
Christian mothers - don't despair! When God gave you the assignment of "mother" He meant for you to complete it successfully. It's a tremendously hard job raising children but He is totally behind you. God wants to use you to prepare your child for the rigors of life.
But how do you do it? Jean Fleming, who says her "heart beats for mothers," highlights not only biblical principles but also practical methods of making these principles live in your child.
Mrs. Fleming, mother of three, tells how you can know your part and God's part in raising your child, how to be thankful for your child with his strengths and weaknesses and then ally yourself with God in His plans for your child's life.
This book tells how you can take a spiritual inventory of your child, how to thoughtfully pray for him, creatively love him and teach him about who God is and what He teaches about life.
Relax! You don't have to be a "super mom." But A MOTHER'S HEART will ehlp you become the mother you want to be.
