“Life is lived out in the unexpected.”

When offered the opportunity to review this book in advance of it’s release, I leapt with joy! Having previously read two of Lori’s other books, Raising Big Kids with Supernatural Love and Raising Little Kids with Big Love– I knew this was sure to be amazing. I wasn’t wrong!

One of my favorite quotes from her book is in the introduction, “My measure of success is to have responsible and caring kids who are able to rely on one another, ask for help and give help when needed, and 39558173_2529100303770470_142620075600379904_o

trust the Lord throughout their lives.”  What a great statement of purpose and intention! Just reading it excites me as a mom. I love goals, I find them empowering.
