Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Book Review - The Anger Workbook by Carter & Minirth

Anger Workbook, The An Interactive Guide to Anger Management

By Les Carter and Frank Minirth
Published by Thomas Nelson

I have followed Minirth's work for 2 decades, so I was excited to see the revision of this resource book.  If you know someone that really wants to understand and tackle their anger issues (whether they are passively or aggressively angry!), this is a great resource for them to use.  It's practical, it's educational, it's thought-provoking, and it's action-oriented.  It defines issues, gives great examples that are easy to relate to, and outlines steps to help you process through issues related to your anger. It's full of scriptures regarding anger and controlling anger.  It talks about the dangers of holding onto anger, but it's filled with gospel hope for overcoming anger.  There is even a chapter on managing a child's anger - a great read for parents of teens and preteens.  I highly recommend this resource to counselors, pastors, small group leaders, and individuals who truly want to change behavior and thinking patterns.  It has the capacity to change your life in a huge way!

I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
