Wholehearted Living

I've recommended Jennifer Grant's writing on motherhood before, and I'm doing it again today. Wholehearted Living is written for busy parents, who can find maybe five minutes to spend thinking or reading at a time.

Jennifer begins each reflection with a quotation from a real thinker or writer--and it's surprisingly refreshing to be confronted with the real deal in small, manageable doses, even for mothers who may feel like their thinker has gone missing.

But the real reason I am so drawn to Jennifer's writing is her genuine and lifegiving humility. She invites, never commands. She suggests, never tells. She is tender.

Written to last all year, this is a wonderful choice to stretch your soul.

Thank you for the recommendation! I enjoyed her book on parenting that you recommended (Momumental) so I will try to check this one out as well.

Thank you for the recommendation. I also bought and read Momumental after your recommendation, and learned that I'm friends with a friend of Jennifer's who's mentioned in the book. Ahhhhh. Trivia.
