A Mother's Rule of Life

On January 1, 2000, Holly Pierlot pounded her fist on the kitchen table and yelled at her husband, I cant take it anymore! Motherhood and homeschooling had overwhelmed her. The house was dirty, the laundry undone. Holly felt frustrated, discouraged, and alone. She couldnt find time to snuggle and have fun with her five children or to go out with her husband. Yes, she loved Philip and she did love God, but she had come to resent Philips freedom and she almost never found time for prayer.

Today, everythings better.

Holly still homeschools, but the house is cleaner, she gets more done, and the kids are happier. Theres less stress, less strife, and less housework. Hollys been healed of past wounds that troubled her soul and her marriage. Best of all, she spends at least an hour each day in prayer and time each evening with Philip.

Holly brought about these changes with what she calls her Mothers Rule of Life, a pattern for living that combines the spiritual wisdom of the monastery with the practical wisdom of motherhood.

Hollys Rule is not just another set of schedules; its a way for Christian mothers to answer Gods call to holiness.
