How do you become a more passionate mom?
Susan Merrill in The Passionate Mom, shows you how by using the ten P’s. Some of the P’s are pondering, prayer, and purpose. Merrill has also include included Bible verses and her own experiences.
She has based this book on the Old Testament book of Nehemiah and how a mom can build a wall around her children, like he built a wall around Jerusalem.
Moms can be passionate, build walls, and help their children grow into great adults.
Author- Susan Merrill currently lives in Florida with her husband. They have five children. She is the director of iMom.com.
My Thoughts- There have been many parenting books written, but I think, The Passionate Mom, is one of the best ones I have ever read. It was well written and easy to read.
It was interesting that Susan Merrill found the book of Nehemiah, in the Bible, to parallel that of a passionate mother. I liked the list of ten P’s, like passion, perception, and planning. Each chapter was dedicated to each of the P’s and as I read the book I learned about her life and how she applied the P’s.
I really enjoyed reading Merrill’s book, but I would have really enjoyed having a study guide or questions at the end of each chapter. I didn’t enjoy the chapter about gate of opportunity, because I felt that I should be able to trust my children more.
I really enjoyed this book. Please find and read a copy today.
