As a mother of three kids who are constantly keeping me on my toes, I am in always in amazement over the amount of things that they teach me each day. There isn’t a day that goes by that they don’t bring me back down to the realities of what life is really supposed to be all about. This is especially true of my youngest one, Zeva. It seems the younger the kids are the more they can teach us because the realities of life haven’t touched them as much yet. When I was given the chance to review Small Talk: Learning From My Children about What Matters Most by Amy Julia Becker from Flyby Promotions in exchange for a blog review I was ready to dive into reading it with an eagerness.
About Amy and Her Small Talk Book
When I started reading her book, it is just like reading an inside story of her life, but in a complete book form. I am grateful that Amy share her family’s story with us in this book. Each chapter leaves us with something that her kids have taught her that is well worth remembering.
As you can see from this short video clip, she has broken this book down into three parts. The first one is about holding on in life while she covers many different topics with some of them being prayer, Christmas, and heaven. The second section is about letting go with some of the topics being laughter, happiness, and God. The last section is about growing up with some of the topics being grace, forgiveness and tragedy.
I would say that this book is really a pleasure to read. I would recommend it for any parents who are like me and feel like on most days that they are sinking into what feels like a big pool of the “quick sand of life.” This book is encouraging and up lifting. When I take the time to pay attention to my own kids, I do see her points that kids really can teach some really powerful lessons in life. My kids are the reason why I do make sure to enjoy as many aspects of my life as I can.
