They Call Me Mom

Why I read this book: As a mom who's love language is words of affirmation, I'm always looking for encouragement. As a youth and family minister, I'm always looking for resources to put into the hands of those I serve. 

My favorite quotes from the book:

- "Your children are only this age, at this stage, right now. You can't get today back, so use your minutes wisely."

- "Don't miss a chance to celebrate your children. Give them your undivided attention. Be their best cheerleader - day in and day out - and I'm pretty sure when you glance up at your heavenly Father, He will be giving you the thumbs-up sign." 

Who I'd recommend this book for: Evangelical stay at home moms in need of encouragement. 


I was honored to receive a copy of They Call Me Mom from Kregel Publications and chose to review the book. All opinions are my own.
