- Great Inspiration by Jacque on 2/1/2012
I had a personal reason for reading this book, my husband is a firefighter/medic, which means if he isn't gone because of work (24 hours on), he's gone for training or his time with the volunteer department or whatever. I try not to whine, but sometimes (with five kids) it gets crazy. I was hoping to get encouragement from this book and I did. If you are struggling to make sense of being alone in a family, I highly suggest you pick up this book. There are small tips (like how to pick a friend) big tips (how to honor your husband). It is filled with Biblical references so you know that you are following God's will in anything that you do. I liked that she included her husband's perspective on the years she felt like a single mom, and I believe that many men are probably oblivious like he was. I read this rather quickly to form a review for the publisher, but I am now going to take the time and get in depth and use the personal reflection journal that Carla provides on her website. She has many other resources available as well, including study discussion guides if you want to use this as a book discussion guide.
It is a small book, but it is jam packed with inspirition and how to open a line of communcation, between yourself and God, your spouse, family and friends.
