Book Review for The Passionate Mom

Posted by Dawn Dewey , 4/3/13

The Passionate Mom - 
            Finally a book for Mothers that is truly encouraging and makes me feel I can be a better mom! The Passionate Mom is written by Susan Merrill who is not only the program director for but also is Mother to 5 children birthed and blessed to her and husband Mark.   The Passionate Mom is a book that once you start reading it, it will be hard to put down.  I had my doubts at first, as a mom of 3 I’ve been searching for that parent book to help me feel normal, to also encourage me that it does get better and that I can do this mommy thing the right way the.  THIS IS THE BOOK that I have been waiting for. 
            Based off of Nehemiah, a book in the Bible, Susan Merrill has made what I thought to be a "boring" book in the Bible to be the most amazing book. Christian and non-Christians will be able to relate to the great mothering skills given.  There are a lot of steps and points in her book, but all are very relatable and doable. 
            Any mother who strives for the best for her children really needs to get a copy of this book.  I am normally not a kindle type reader, but having a copy on my kindle makes it easier for me throughout my day to re-read it and refresh myself with the encouraging words from this book. Quotes like “Patience is a like my keys often lost and found in the strangest places” and then there is “Everyone has time, and so do you.  You are just not making this a priority for your time”, and lastly “passion never fails when it is fueled by love”.  The Passionate Mom is truly a book that is all about LOVE!
I truly recommend this book to mothers of all ages.  She also has free printables on her website
Stay tuned I may be giving away a book for FREE....
