Book Reviews and Book Drawing for Mother-Daughter Duet and Dancing with My Father
What a great couple of books! Mother-Daughter Duet by Cheri Fuller and her grown daughter, Ali Plum is a refreshing book written by mother and daughter with both perspectives given. I was immediately captivated by the writing style and the subject matter. This book is about being a mom, or a daughter and you will be able to relate on both levels through-out the book. The part of the book that I gleaned most from was the section on "Letting Go" which I am having a very difficult time doing right now! Of course its hard to let go when they haven't left yet! I have two adult daughters living at home still and it is extremely difficult not to mother them. In the book you will read how you need to let them make mistakes and take those small steps back as they grow and mature and then hopefully by the time they are ready to fly from the nest you will be ready also! There is so much that you can relate to and learn in this book that you will easily finish it within a few reading sessions. Many examples from mothers and daughters in almost every different situation; from single mothers with rebellious daughters to the most traditional mother daughter roles. You will read about yourselves in this book!
"The relationship between mothers and daughters is intense, personal, complex, and unique. But you can have the loving, authentic bond you always dreamed of - when you learn the mother-daughter duet."
The second book is Dancing with My Father by Sally Clarkson. Do you feel overloaded with your "to do list", weighed down by drudgery or disappointed with your life in general? Then this is the book for you! Sally will lead you in new ways of gaining joy in your life! She will guide you down the path of finding delight in God's presence. What happens when you trust God to lead your life? This is an uplifting book of joy and learning how to trust in God when things are looking dim. Psalm 30:11,12 pretty much sums up the purpose of this little book.
