Preparing Him for the Other Woman


Raising boys is such a unique experience. Some days, I feel so ill equipped for the task that I could run and hide. I finished Preparing Him for the Other Woman: A Mother’s Guide to Raising Her Son to Love a Wife and Lead a Family by Sheri Rose Shepherd this week. It was SUCH an amazing and encouraging book! I appreciated that she wasn’t scared to share her personal stories. Her experiences and anecdotes highlighted the lessons of each chapter and helped her advice really hit home. Each chapter focuses on an aspect of raising sons. She lays out practical steps for three age brackets {0-8, 9-13, 14-19} in each chapter as well. I loved that I could read her great tips according to age and they were doable and something I can start right away. It helped knowing what would be some age-appropriate guidelines to start each topic. As I have been reminded so often lately, my time of intense, hands on parenting is so short. In a few years, my boys will be out in the world and I want them to be Godly, amazing men that lead and make the world a better place. But that starts with me and our home. I would definitely recommend this book to any mama navigating boy-parenting!
