My thoughts:  

9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom, by Sue Detweiler, was a very interesting book.  I saw myself in some of the negative traits that I have that I need to change into God’s traits, like anxiety to peace and fear into faithfulness. 

I was glad that Detweiler added a lot of anecdotes from her life into this book.  It really helped me to be able to admit to myself the traits that I need to change.  There were many stories that I found that could have helped me if I had those problems too.  I was very proud of her for sharing her stories. 

I thought the study guide was very helpful.  I would have preferred to have them at the end of the chapter, because I like being able read and answer the questions as soon as I finish the chapter without having to turn to the end of the book and then go back.

This was a very good book.  I would recommend to all moms and moms-to-be.
