936 Pennies – Discovering the Joy of Intentional Parenting, by Eryn Lynum


Susan here, with my latest book review….This book is super-inspiring. The title concept refers to a jar the author received when her child was very young. The number 936 relates to the number of weeks in your child’s life from birth to eighteen years old.

The mom takes one penny out every week and meditates, contemplates, and looks within, making sure to relish, maximize, and enjoy the parenting journey. Reading about this plan is fascinating and the author brings out many anecdotes to spark one’s understanding of the momentous privilege of raising children.

For me, personally, if was a little sad to read, since I am done with those years. But, I would love to give someone a jar of pennies some day. This was a nice book to read and reflect on the ideas presented.

Note from the blogger: My own debut fiction book came out last August. If you like Regency romance, or want to check it out, please find A Match for Melissa, available on Amazon, or Barnes & Noble. Thanks, Susan Karsten
