Mitten Strings For God by Katrina Kenison
Mothers are pulled in a million different directions while trying to give their kids fulfilling, productive, joyful childhoods. They mistake activity for happiness, and fill their kids heads with information when they ought to be feeding their souls instead. This is a book for mothers who yearn to find a balance in their own and their childrens lives. Through stories and suggestions, Katrina Kenison shares her insights into how to celebrate lifes quiet moments, softly reminding busy mothers to pause and remember the deep sense of well-being that comes from a listening ear, an open heart, and a quiet little space carved out of time. A former book editor, Katrina Kenison has worked with such distinguished authors as Jane Hamilton, Calvin Trillin, and Olive Ann Burns. Since 1989, Katrina Kenison has been the editor of the annual collection The Best American Short Stories (Houghton Mifflin). The 1999 edition, which she edited with John Updike, is a bestseller. Composed of short reflections that cover subjects ranging from Listening and Grace to TV and Play, mothers will want to buy this beautifully designed book for themselves and also give it to friends.
