I think the most precious gift I have ever been given is that of motherhood. It is a simple concept if you know about the “birds and the bees,” but the actual act of mothering isn’t something you are born knowing how to do. Well into it, I’m still not sure I can attest to doing it with a lot of ease, but I can certainly attest to doing it with a lot of prayer! For new parents: I hope you will not only enjoy the memories and advice, but relate to them firsthand. For those of you who have been around the parenting block: you should quickly relate, laugh and thank God you made it through! Finally, for those of you not yet embarking on the parenting adventure: why in the world are you reading this book in the first place? Just kidding, the very sum you paid for this book shows you care greatly about the task of being parents that may one day be before you.
