In an essay called "Quiet," Kenison urges mothers to turn their homes into relaxing escapes from the hectic, crowded world around them. This "mood of calm repose" will serve both kids and moms. In "Breathing," Kenison reminds readers to simply "take a deep breath" every once in a while. In "Spirit," Kenison explains that most of what she's learned about God, she has learned from her children.
From the book's lovely opening essay about relishing the stillness of early mornings to the concluding piece on the passage of time, these reflections will calm and inspire. Mothers--and many dads, kids, and singles--will relish "Mitten Strings for God."
