I Remember Mama X10

I very much recommend this book. I am so glad to have it and have read it. Savored it. And will be passing it along to a friend. She is a pastor's wife and I think will like it, too.

Life changing book

If you are interested in women's lives at the turn of the 20th century, and/or are following Christ, you will love this book. I read it through in one sitting, and it has reverberated in my life ever since. A touching biography of a woman who gives her all for the Lord.

Great Gift Book!!!

I was given this book as a gift and just fell in love with it. I now keep several copies on hand to give as gifts. Its easy to read and full of depth! Any mother would enjoy reading it... young or old! It inspires you to be a better Mom and wife. What I love about books like this, is that you fall in love with the family. You get to know all the kids and the mother and father. By the end of the book, you don't want the family to go.

Mama & God

This is the story of an immigrant family in the early 1900s. Many times were hard but the family's faith in God brought them through. This is a very easy to read book with stories that put the reader in the setting. The stories, although enlightening about living in that time period, also serve the purpose of building one's faith by seeing how Mama believed God's promises and helped all her children to believe them too. This book is a pleasure to read & the reader will feel better after having read it.

Strong Biblically based role model for wives

I was surprised by how attractive biblical marriage is portrayed within the pages of this encouraging little book. This is not about how to have a happy marriage/family life when both partners are 'wonderful'. This is the life-story of a woman who applied God's truths to her life and trusted in the Lord for the outcome. Her husband didn't suddenly turn into the romantic white knight she may have dreamed about in her youth, but she loved and respected him, even regarding his differences. She walked the walk, sacrificing many things to the Lord, and found that the secret to a happy life was a thankful heart. There just aren't very many Christian books out there that unabashedly take God's word as it is written. So many water it down with situational ethics...this one does not, but what an encouraging and riveting biography for us to follow.

I laughed, I cried! I couldn't put it down!

First We Have Coffee is the most inspirational and uplifting book I have read in years! The true story of the Tweten family kept me laughing and crying and then laughing again until the very end when I finally put the book down and sobbed. Through joy and sorrow, this is the best example of a mother's unwavering faith I have ever read. Ella Tweten's example inspired me and kept me glued to the pages. Not wanting it to end, yet wanting to drink it all in as fast as possible to the very satisfying end. First We Have Coffee is a must read!! Reviewed By: Colleen Cato
