I recently picked up this book and while I’m not finished with it yet, I am loving it. The full title is, “Steady Days: A Journey Toward Intentional, Professional Motherhood” by Jamie Martin. Here are a few reasons why I am enjoying it:
1. It is short and efficient. In this stage of my life, finishing a book is a big deal. I love that this book isn’t wordy. Since my time to read is short and comes in spurts its nice to be able to read for just 5 minutes and get lots of good ideas. Each chapter is only about a page long, chapters I can actually finish between chasing kids.
2. Easy, practical tips. The author teaches how to provide a more calm and relaxing daily routine for your home through various organizational goals. She is not an idealist, but is practical in her teaching and tips.
3. It’s encouraging! There is no guilt passed on in this book. Ever mom has to find their own routine and way of doing things. However, it is so encouraging to hear other’s ideas and suggestions. I find it very encouraging to read about ways to offer more order and peace to my day through very simple steps.
