Mitten Strings for God Reflections for Mothers in a Hurry – Paperback
“When I stop speeding through life I find the joy in each day’s doings, in a life that cannot be bought, but only discovered, created, cherished, and lived. . . .I wrote this book because I needed it myself — and because I suspect that I’m not alone, that other mothers, too, yearn to offer their children an alternative to our culture’s noise, pressures, and materialism.”
In the tradition of Gift from the Sea and Women Who Do Too Much, this lyrical, heartfelt series of reflections has become a beloved parenting classic since it was first published in 2000. Featured on “Oprah,” translated into six languages, and with well over 200,000 copies sold, Mitten Strings for God is a trusted guide for all mothers with young children.
Inspired by Katrina’s own search for a more satisfying balance between work and family, this simple, intimate book reminds us what is possible when we slow down and become fully present in our lives. Coming home to ourselves, we are able to offer our children the one thing they need most of all: our own quiet presence.
Inspirational and life-affirming, it offers reminders of what is of lasting value, such as grace, love, tranquility.” – Dallas Morning News
