Mothering is both wonderful and challenging. Many a mother wants to know what is right for her children, especially in a world where the traditional strengths of the family are being questioned and undermined. Even committed mothers find popular child-rearing methods and theories to be a maze of confusion and conflicting ideas. Fortunately, there are divine principles of motherhood that transcend time, place, and circumstance. Using gospel truths, secular research, and life experience, these essential principles are identified and used to provide a reliable lens through which mothers everywhere can determine the right thing to do in each moment. Janice Nielson uses her extensive educational research on motherhood, combined with the insights she gained while rearing her 11 children, to explain and illustrate these basic principles. She puts secular science and illustrations from her own living laboratory into a gospel context, knowing that the principles spoken of here are eternal truths given to us by the Master.
