My Review:

Elizabeth George has been one of my favorite female authors for quite some time, and was first introduced to her work when I first got married.  In fact, it was due in part to reading her books, that I came up with the blog name I did. Now, as a mom of two girls, I was very excited to hear of her new release, Raising a Daughter After God's Own Heart.

I have always enjoyed how Elizabeth George writes in such an easy to read and understand manner. Her books are designed for moms and women at any stage and age of life. I love that she always includes many personal experiences, and does so in this newest book once again. This book gave me so many wonderful ideas to implement in my own life as a mom of young girls currently, and to reference later as my girls grow.

Being a mom is one of the greatest gifts God has blessed me with and even though I am at a stage where some days are tougher than others, I know that my girls are learning valuable lessons they will take with them their whole life! You will be presented with many scripture references and encouragement as you read each page of this book. I know I was. It includes a wonderful section in each chapter, Mom's Think Pad, where one can journal and get fantastic ideas.

Raising a Daughter After God's Own Heart is the perfect gift idea for any mom in your life, and would be a fantastic baby shower idea.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
