On January 1, 2000, Holly Pierlot pounded her fist on the kitchen table and yelled at her husband, "I canít take it anymore!"
Motherhood and home schooling had overwhelmed her. The house was dirty, the laundry undone. Holly felt frustrated, discouraged, and alone. She couldnít find time to snuggle and have fun with her five children or to go out with her husband. Yes, she loved Philip and she did love God, but she had come to resent Philipís freedom and she almost never found time for prayer.
Today, everythingís better.
Holly still home schools, but the house is cleaner, she gets more done, and the kids are happier. Thereís less stress, less strife, and less housework. Hollyís been healed of past wounds that troubled her soul and her marriage. Best of all, she spends at least an hour each day in prayer and time each evening with Philip.
Holly brought about these changes with what she calls her "Motherís Rule of Life", a pattern for living that combines the spiritual wisdom of the monastery with the practical wisdom of motherhood.
Hollyís Rule is not just another set of schedules; itís a way for Christian mothers to answer Godís call to holiness.
With the help of your own Rule, you can get control of your own household, grow closer to God, come to love your husband more, and raise up good Christian children. In these wise and practical pages, Holly shows you how.
Do you want to be a better wife and mother? To have more order in your life? To grow in union with God? Are you desperate yet?
With your own Motherís Rule of Life, youíll transform motherhood and its burdens into the joyful vocation itís meant to be. Learn from Holly Pierlot how to craft a Rule thatís right for you and your family. Then use that Rule to help God draw you, your husband, and each of your children into Heaven!
Holly Pierlot (b. 1961) is a popular speaker at catechetics and marriage programs and home schooling conferences. She lives on Prince Edward Island, Canada, with her husband, Philip, and home schools her five children.
