I received this book for review all opinions are 100% honest and my own.
I’m all about simple, add a game plan and you got my attention. I’m a busy entrepreneur mom of three beautiful children, that I love dearly. Living a lifestyle that is not very predictable, can be challenging at times for the children. My husband being in the Marine Corps, deploying and movie every 2 to 3 years to different locations can be stressful and tiring for military children growing up in an unstable environment.
So have tools in my back pocket to help with the crazy demands of a military lifestyle, I know will make life easier all around. I have eleven, going on thirty-three years old, boy and girl twins and think they know-it-all, want to do their own thing and sometimes navigating that on my own is tough and hard to deal with. I want to be able to raise my children in a Godly household and raise them up in God’s word, but sometimes I question, what does that look like?
I didn’t grow up in a christian household, so I don’t have any ideas to pull from or model after. I dependently, rely on the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me through the ups and downs of parenting. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to come across this book, to be given an opportunity to read from Godly professionals about raising my children up healthy, without destroying their lives too much.
