Karen5 Stars Out Of 5December 23, 2002KarenI didn't have this book when I really needed it when my children were small. But since finding this wonderful book I have given it as a gift to many new Moms. It has really great things to say and it, and it shows that you really are not alone!!
Lisa5 Stars Out Of 5February 22, 2001LisaI recently had the opportunity to read Calm in My Chaos while traveling cross country on a crowded airplane. My fellow travellers must have wondered what was going on with me...alternating between furious highlighting and underlining, giggles, sobs of emotion and lots of head nodding and smiles. Beth Corcoran's book touched my soul in a way few others have - it spurred me to immediate action. The book is organized into short chapters with "personal touch" life application opportunities and brief devotional offerings at the conclusion of each chapter. Beth's writing style is consice, witty and touching. By the end of the first few chapters, you feel as though you know this woman like a sister or a dear friend and you want to reach out and share your heart with her. The "personal touch" issues will provoke meaningful life change in women of any age, regardless of whether or not you have young children. Beth's goal is to help us grow closer to God and to grow as women, individuals and mothers. The book is a quick and enjoyable read, but you will find yourself coming back to sections and rereading again and again. I would highly recommend this book!
Loni Bakeman5 Stars Out Of 5February 21, 2001Loni BakemanI wish this scale went all the way up to "100 books!". This is the single most inspiring, motivating, touching and heartfelt book I have ever read. It felt as though Elisabeth was talking straight to me throughout the entire book. I laughed, I cried. I feel as though I know her and to give her a big hug! It is wonderful and refreshing the way she sees God and God's plan in everything she sees and does. I also found it nice to see her little side notes, showing that none of us are "perfect". I am recommending this book on my Web Site to all of my visitors, who are mainly Stay At Home Moms and Work at Home Moms. I know that they will all benefit from these words of great inspiration.
Diane W.5 Stars Out Of 5February 1, 2001Diane W.Reading this book is like getting to know a good friend. The author is very transparent and genuine in revealing her experiences as a mother, and it's great to know that we as moms are not alone in this adventure of parenting. I will look forward to Elisabeth K. Corcoran's next book.
Liz Tameling5 Stars Out Of 5February 1, 2001Liz TamelingI found this book to be a delightful read and an encouragement to all of us who are or have been parents through the years. The stories are heartwarming and real, and show the common bond we all share in raising the children God has blessed us with. The author's faith shines through every story, yet it is not preachy.I especially like the way Ms. Corcoran takes all the little things that our children say and do and sees God's hand in their lives.I highly recommend it, not only to young moms, but moms to be and moms of all ages.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a stay-at-home wife and mom. I've been married for 7 years to Kevin and have a 4-year- old daughter, Sara, and a two-year-old son, Jack. I also serve in leadership with the Women's Ministries at Blackberry Creek Church in Aurora.
What was your motivation behind this project? I wanted every mom to know that what she was feeling was normal no one ever told me that motherhood would be this exhilarating, this tiring, this scary, this joy-filled, this frustrating, this boring, this awe-inspiring all at the same time. And I wanted every mom out there to know that God is loving her through this time and He wants to help each one of us be our best for our children, our husbands, our friends and for Him.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? My desire is that each mom, woman or even dad who reads this will realize that God loves them completely and He shows us in amazing ways each day. And that when we're at our lowest - our most impatient, or our most tired - we know we have God as our Strength to lean on.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I read almost everything that I can get my hands on - so I really haven't narrowed down a favorite author.
