HASH(0x9ce51fe4) out of 5 stars Developing a Loving Mother's Heart Sept. 26 2004
By Nikdoula - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is superb! Some of the many wonderful things that this book has taught me are that:

*Children are not born knowing how to be excellent adults, but that they must be taught, while they are children, how to be excellent people. This can be accomplished by cherishing them and acknowledging them as the gifts from God that they truly are.

*Parents have a great deal of responsibility when it comes to parenting; much more than many of us realize today.

*Home is truly where the heart is, and that home should be a warm, loving, positive place where every not only feels, but KNOWS that they are valuable, cherished, needed, and deeply, deeply loved.

Mrs. Andelin writes of many things in this book that pertain to parenting, such as: the home, teaching children, wholesome nutrition, cures for common ailments, nurturing, the responsibilities of husbands, wives, fathers, and mothers,


This is an EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT book that is written from one devoted wife and mother's heart and can truly help any wife and mother who seeks to develop her heart!

HASH(0x9cae7408) out of 5 stars You can buy this book for only $18 June 8 2010
By First Lady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
You can buy this book for only $18 at the author's own website. Fascinating Womanhood was her first book and is Excellent.

I am appalled that people are trying to get $50 or more for an $18 book and want to make sure that others know it is available for less with a little more searching. Just search for the name of her first book and put a net behind it : ) I believe that Helen Andelin died in 2009 and her son has taken over the business.

HASH(0x9cae7480) out of 5 stars Being Blessed by Having Blessed Children April 26 2001
By Jessica Heilman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Being a mother of a very strong willed three year old, I came to a cross roads. Which way do I turn ? Do I become unbearably strict ? Or do I relent and let my strong willed son have his way, and take my will with him ? Nothing was more frustrating to me than relentless cries, coupled with the unmistakable look of disheartenment on his face when I would say "No" to him, at least a hundred times a day. Helen Andelin's book at first glance made me stiffen, thinking that I was not the perfect mom -imagine that ! Then after reading on, I realized my son WAS NOT living up to his God given potential, and that I needed to relax, and let him be three. I was encouraged to find out who he really was, and to use the techniques provided in creating a balanced home. A home full of love, happiness, and lots of "yes mam's". I will be continually blessed, by having such a blessed child.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I highly recommend this book to anyone who, like myself, want to get back to basics of and goodness of the good 'ole days. This book is filled with classic, genuine timeless wisdom that I'd applied can and will change your household. For those who cannot truly appreciate the simplicity and accountability of the good 'ole days....this book isn't for you.
