How Many Times Do I Have To Tell You?: A Blog Tour and Book Review

About The Book:

You’ve probably said these things to your kids, but have you listened to what you’re saying?
“I remember the day you were born.”
“Turn down the music!”
“This is going to hurt me more than it’s going to hurt you.”
“Hold my hand.”
Your heavenly Father wants to tell you many of these same things. Rachael Carman knows how noisy it can be when you’re raising children—she has seven! But this lovely devotional book will help you to hear God’s still, small voice amid the chaos of carpools, cut fingers, and carpet crawlers. You’ll learn how to recognize God’s instructions for you, even as you seek to follow His example as a parent.
About The Author:
Rachael Carman is an author and speaker for Apologia Educational Ministries. The wife of Davis and the mother of seven children, Rachael challenges parents to live by reckless, obedient faith. As a direct reflection of her heart's desire to encourage, inspire, and celebrate motherhood, Rachael also leads Real Refreshment Retreats, weekend events that energize and invigorate homeschooling mothers with meaningful worship and speakers plus practical encouragement for the homeschool journey.
My Review:
This is a very different parenting book than I have read in a while, but that is a good thing. It is an encouraging read that meets the reader right where they are. In the midst of the sometimes messy journey we call parenthood. The book is organized so nicely and that makes it perfect for reading from cover to cover or reading only the chapters that you need for the place you may be in as a parent.
The whole book is awesome, but I especially loved being reminded to pray, especially in the tough times, to remember that God's timing is what it is all about, that we are here for a reason, that we need to put God first so that we can be the best parent He wants us to me, and that we are never alone on this journey, even if we sometimes feel like it.
Each chapter has "moments of introspection" for the reader to take a moment and think about how to apply to life what was just read. It's perfect for a quick devotional and so incredibly encouraging. This would be a perfect new parent gift and especially a great gift for a parent you know that may be experiencing a difficult time.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
