Shocked!!!

I was utterly astonished at the authors attitude to abortion within this book!
I bought the book on parenting guidance not to listen to this shocking attack on women who's circumstances may not leave them with any other options! I was appalled!
Stick to the subject in the title!

Exactly what I needed

What made the experience of listening to The Best Advice I Ever Got on Parenting the most enjoyable?

The humour and the truth in the stories touched me. I didn't always agree with every parenting tip but for someone who hates to read anything that isn't fantasy or sci-fi I couldn't stop listening. I laughed, I cringed, I cried.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The story that touched me the most was the one were the family decided that they would risk everything for God's work. It was touching and inspiring and blew me away.

Any additional comments?

This book is written by Christian parents, for Christian parents. Anyone can listen to it but keep that in mind. For Christians, these stories will remind you of God's plan for you and your children. Amazing book!

Not my favorite Jim Daly, but good

It would have been better if Jim Daly had narrated it himself. It was a nice sampling of different authors and such who have been on FOTF
