A friend from book club recommended this book and seeing that I have a large family, I wanted to give it a read. Thank you to Jo for letting me borrow it!
As a whole, I really enjoyed this book. The beginning is very good and is a great look at the Proverbs 31 woman. Part 1 is about the spiritual elements of keeping a home which I really appreciated. Part 2 was more practical and everyday implementation of homemaking concepts. My family has become very large very quickly, so some of what she had so say was a bit overwhelming. Her kids were spaced out a bit more so some of the systems for me were hard to interpret. But I do think she had great ideas if you are able to take general ideas and personalize them. I hope to use this to grow in that.
I also had some difficulty with some interpretations of ideas. It's not that I think she is wrong per se, but sometimes circumstances don't always fall in cut and dry lines.
I do think this book could be very beneficial for all homemakers whether you're single or have 50 kids. I would recommend this book to anyone.
4.5 stars for this book
