Yes, and AMEN to the entire book! Jamie gave me so much peace of mind. It is nice to know that I am not the only one ( ). I honestly did not know what I would think of this book, and was pleasantly surprised at how much of it resonates with me. This book is worth a read in Introverted friends.
   Love this book!
I can not recommend this book enough. The author helps you know that you aren 't alone and gives lots of suggestions, tips and encouragement to help you with your personality.
   This a must read for introverted mamas or
I have cried several times per chapter. I cry because I feel like I am not crazy, not failing and not alone as I navigate this personality. God gave Jaime the exact message that my broken, tired and overwhelmed heart needed to hear. At just the right time, her words of wisdom and encouragement have thrown me a much needed lifeline... and I am only a quarter of the way through.
   Misses the point
I enjoyed this book really first, but the more I read the more I got the idea that the author uses our actual natures as an excuse not to face our introverted responsibilities in life. I am all in favor of carving out my much needed time to recharge, but sometimes we have to be willing and encouraged to do things outside our comfort zones. I closed my eyes at the list of instructions for our husbands on how to take care of our introverted nature, but when I got to the 10 ways to avoid awkward church greetings '', I rolled the book. This is wrong to me as a Christian. This places way too much emphasis on self-centered feelings instead of obeying God by being hospitable. I was hoping for tips that would encourage me to balance my extroverted personality with my faith in God.
   Fascinating and well written!
This book is really kind of fantastic for any mom! I don 't think that you have to be an introvert to feel overwhelmed and stressed by the chaos that children often bring to the home. This book is well written, charming, practical and informative. She engages the reader with her own experience, the experience of other introverted mothers, but best of all her knowledge of other writings and writers. I love biographies and she has incorporated the lives of my favorite authors into what she has to say keeps me wanting more and more. I highly recommend '' this book!
   Reviewed under my husband's account 😊
Was what a gift to Jamie C. Martin we have introverted moms. And it all done with warmth and genuine affections and humor. I love all the practical advice she gives about how to better take care of our needs as an introverted mom so that we can be better mothers and wives for our families. I also enjoyed reading the reflections by other introverted mothers at the end of each chapter. There is a certain comfort in knowing that you are not alone in feeling or thinking a real way. I wish I could get this book into the hands of all introverts, whether married or single. I know that many people will be blessed and encouraged by this book, as I have been.
   Truly a beautiful book.
Over and over again. I am also coming from a dark place in my life, and this book offers understanding and insight that helped me see my introverted self in a different light. Truly, a beautiful book written by a beautiful soul.
   I'm not a bad mom!
This book changed my life. It is a relief to know that I am not alone and that I am just introverted, not a bad mother. I am so much more confident and acceptance in who I am now, and that has made all the difference.
   Truth that spoke to my heart.
I ordered this book as a pre-order and was so glad to receive it. The first chapter spoke right to my heart and I could see myself in everything she said. When she spoke about not wanting to invite others as a child, I finally had an ah-ha moment about my 16-year-old introvert. Highly recommended!
   I was in tears by the end of the excerpt
As I always do, I read the free excerpt of this book to see if it was something I was interested in reading all the way through. By the end of the excerpt, Jamie had me laughing, and weeping my head yes! And of course, trying to hide all that emotion. I was not really sure why I was crying. I think that something just resonated deeply. I ve therefore preordered it without another thought. The physicality of the book is just delightful : it has a buttery soft cover and it is not an effort to separate the pages. They just fall open. I can 't wait to see you again.
