Not for Everyone

This book was defiantly intended for a particular audience. Others outside that audience will not get it. This is not a straight up cookbook, nor a scream-from-the-pulpit sermon. It is just what it is. My own family has been using her methods for a long time and we love it. "Mega-cooking" tm really gets the family together, sister cutting potatoes, brother slicing apples and father mixing chili sauce. For me going on the all day outing to the Farmer's market walking in the crisp air and smelling the fresh produce are fond memories. Jill obviously has a heart for housewives and wants to lift those women up, and I say more power to her! Housewives need help and encouragement, as well as practical help, and this book offers that. She brings enough of the Spiritual, Humorous, and realistic aspects of everyday life together, (maybe not perfectly, what author can?) Again this book is not for everybody, just the ones it was meant for. So if you are a Christian housewife, or maybe you are and just don't know it yet, get this book. If you don't want to hear the honest opinion of a Godly woman leave it be, try Mega Cooking, more recipes less talk.In closing, Jill's book has a gentle narrative, logical format and a profound wit (I found myself laughing out loud more than once I assure you). For me the Biblical aspects are insightful, I think the only people who claim she is "preachy" just don't get it. It is impossible to please everybody. From the very introduction she states firmly her beliefs and reasons for writing this book. I do not see her as a fundamentalist or a radical, she just stands by what she believes and has the courage to write about it, I wish more people would do that. All in all a good book, just not for everybody.

Very Refreshing Approach to Cooking

I found this book to be very refreshing and helpful to get me started on my first mega cooking experience. I probably wasn't quite as organized as I should have been so it took me longer than I thought to cook for one month. If I would have verified I had my staples on hand it would have ran a little smoother. I was very happy with the variety of recipies and now know which ones my family prefers. Will probably leave out a couple we did not care for and substitute others using some of the same ingredients. This book has me hooked and I loved her Christian approach to cooking, celebrating and the various other helpful hints. Thank you so much for this book. I am looking forward to ordering her new one.

Fabulous insight!

I'm only halfway through this book and already I've gleaned a bunch of helpful tips from Jill! I was pleasantly surprised to see how she has taken this concept of OAMC and is, at the same time, using this as her ministry! I have a lot of respect for this attitude, especially in today's world. Personally, I feel this book is VERY organized and walks you through each step thoroughly. I can't wait to get started cooking!!

I found it helpful.

I've never read any of the other books on cooking ahead, but this one had such great charts, I'm glad I read it! Helped me put my own meals in the freezer with very little headache. Now, if I can just get up the nerve to do one of Bond's six-month cooking sessions my life would be heaven! No cooking for six months? What a dream....

Excellent book with an emphasis on lifestyle changes

I am very pleased with this book. As a newly divorced 25 year old mother, I am looking forward to purchasing a freezer and beginning. I am also very excited about the other subjects Jill discusses such as housecleaning, organizing, teaching, health care, etc. I am the vice-president of the local Professional Women's Association and we really want Jill Bond here to do a seminar. I attempted to contact her by writing the publisher and have not received a response yet. We really want her here to share this with us. Her ideas are great. If she can get a hold of me, I would be really glad. I am eager to hear from her.Thank you for such a great book that focuses on lifestyle improvement and change rather than just cooking and eating habits. I give it a thumbs up!
