    1. I found a lot of gems, I was highlighting things throughout the entire book. But something with the book just didn't click with me. Between the gems, I was honestly just bored. I felt like the book repeated a lot and stated a lot that seemed obvious. The writing was good and the book well organized, I think it just didn't click with me.


    2. Not just for home schoolersThis book is full of biblical truths every women should live by. Speaking not as a home schooling mom but as a grandmother I found inspiration for my own life. Thank you Karen.


    3. This is a convicting, yet encouraging book. It really helps me focus on the important things as we begin our new year.
