Book Review: How Many Times Do I Have to Tell You?

About the book: 

How Many Times Do I Have to Tell You? (Apologia Educational Ministries, September 2014) 

You've probably said these things to your kids, but have you listened to what you're saying? 

"I remember the day you were born." 

"Turn down the music!" 

"This is going to hurt me more than it's going to hurt you." 

"Hold my hand." 

Your heavenly Father wants to tell you many of these same things. Rachael Carman knows how noisy it can be when you're raising children---she has seven! But this lovely devotional book will help you to hear God's still, small voice amid the chaos of carpools, cut fingers, and carpet crawlers. You'll learn how to recognize God's instructions for you, even as you seek to follow His example as a parent.

My Review:
There are so many things as parents that we say that we told ourselves we would absolutely, never ever say to our children.  Life is crazy.  Life with kids is even crazier.  Some of the crazy is joyful and wonderful while some of the crazy just makes you go crazy (and not in a good way!).  It is so easy to get caught up in stuff that doesn't matter and lose sight of the goal and the important things.  This book calls us all to take a second, breathe and focus on the bigger picture.  I love that reminders to calm myself in the terrible chaos and focus.  We know what Carman is saying is true and we have those truths deep down but when chaos is erupting it is too easy to forget everything we stand for and hope for.  I highly recommend this book to all moms.  It is a nice read to center yourself on your truths and goals.

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
