A friend recommended this book to me so I have it on reserve and look forward to reading it soon. As far as God caring about your laundry, ( as mentioned in the review below) I think He cares about every single detail, little & big, in our lives. Where does one draw the line between what is and is not important? He is God after all, I think He can handle it all.
I have mixed feelings about this book. She has some terrific suggestions and it's interesting to read about her family's experience. And she's honest - she admits she lectures too much, she's aware her husband is a jerk. But every chapter devolves into "This brought me back again to my relationship with Christ," which definitely put me off. If you like your parenting books leavened with quotes from Ecclesiastes, this one is for you. If you think God has better things to care about than your laundry, you may want to look elsewhere.
This is a fantastic book with tips on how to not only cut back on entitlement in your house, but to also get your kids ready for life in the outside world. The author spends a year getting her kids to contribute more to the household (cleaning, meal planning, cooking, doing odd jobs). She has a list of 12 things she feels they need to know how to do before they are old enough to be on their own, and over the course of the year she works on having them successfully complete all 12. Really inspiring and I can't wait to try out some of these things on my own children!
