‘Smart Martha’s guide for busy mom’s’ contains tips and reflections from Kiser’s own experiences, and also incorporates simple suggestions to focus yourself and your family life on Christ. From organising chores so as to maximise quality family time, making dinner a real communion, setting limits on TV, game, movie and music content this book covers it all.

Once in a while there is a book that really jumps out at me (and I’m a big reader, 2-3 books a fortnight!) and this is one of them. This book was so relevant and interesting that I was able to read it cover to cover in one sitting.

Basically ‘Smart Martha’ is practical advice on incorporating more ‘Mary’ moments into the vocation of mother’s which is often more ‘Martha’-like (cf. Luke 10:38-42).

Kiser also details how to foster Christ-centered children through measured approaches to toys, media, technology and chores. She gives tips on how to put family ahead of chores and still have a clean house and well organised life.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and am already trying to put it into practice within my own family. I highly recommend this book for all mothers, and mothers-to-be!
