Mother's Day

Well, I may be overseas, but I am still closely involved in the life of the shop. Technology helps of course. For example, it is through this blog I have discovered that Jeremy is thinking about Mother's Day! (Matt our 3yr old also let out a secret when chatting on the webcam yesterday 'Mummy, we've got you a present....'). Actually, I would like to read 'More Love to Thee', or even better 'Stepping Heavenward' which is the book by Elisabeth Prentiss telling of her journey through many trials.
One book I have read recently that I found very thought provoking was 'Damsels in Distress'. Without wanting to be offensive to our overseas customers it was very 'American', however, if this can be overlooked I thought it a worthwhile book for women. The first chapter talks of the dangers of idle gossip
. Other topics cover legalism and PMT. The author has also written a book called 'The Excellent Wife' which has a lot of good points. Interestingly, we have a book 'The Exemplary Husband' which is intended to be used alongside 'The Excellent Wife' and we sell alot more copies of the Husband book than the Wife book. Do we women think we already know it all???
Other suitable Mother's Day books could include 'Legacy of Faith' by L Brownback, 'God's Little Women in the Bible' by B Edwards, 'Selina Countess of Huntingdon' by F, well there are lots of options, you really need to have a browse round the website/shop.
