Part of my goal list was to make sure that I read at least one book per month this year, I was aiming for two. What good are goals if you don’t set them high, right?
I just finished my second book, that’s two books in three months if you’re counting. But this book is different, way different because I wrote it ~ part of it anyway. (Does proofing your own book count?) I digress.
In the midst of moving across country, having a baby and buying a house, I thought it was a good idea to take on a project to contribute to Tidbits from Help Meets. A help meet is a wife, a companion that helps her husband as provided in Genesis.
This book contains tidbits, pieces of advice from Christian wives and mothers who are trying to navigate this world while maintaining their sanity, all while keeping God first.
From how to’s to stories, Tidbits is meant to encourage, support and guide you to those places that you’ve been yearning to go, but hadn’t quite made it. The book is divided into seven sections with each author contributing to each section:
- Making Time for God and Me
- Loving Our Husbands
- Encouragement for Your Heart
- Raising Our Kids for Christ
- Ministering Outside the Home
As much as I wish I could tell you that I wrote the best parts of the book, I cannot. These women provided valuable advice. From chapters like: Pleasure Him, Stolen Moments, and 5 Tricks to Stay on Top of Homemaking, you learn so much!
Just check out this little piece:
“…As mommies, we fill our days with tasks and activities that will benefit all the people that have been entrusted in our care, while our own needs get ignored… We plan to get up early…[but] that good intention…is lost.”
Does that sound like you? Well, Marissa DiDomenico offers some practical advice of setting the alarm early, but if you don’t get up, make a plan to schedule it in later. Easy right?
What about keeping your husband happy? Well, as mentioned above, one of the chapters is called “Pleasure Him”. Ren Simonitis tells it like it is, trying to make sure, as wives, we keep our men happy! Part of her advice:
“Do what you can with what ya got!”
Yep! Sounds so reasonable, right? You have to get the book to read the rest on how you do that.
Those are very small pieces of this wonderful ebook. I think there’s a little bit for everyone!
