“With All Joy fills a massive void in the parenting book genre. Meg doesn’t lose sight of the big picture but has such practical and vivid examples that any mother in the process of mothering young humans should read this book. Other parenting books are like the lecture portion of the course whereas hers is the lab – it is hands-on and grounded in reality. She lays the foundation for why training our children is so important and God-honoring then moves on to a detailed method, and then gives thoughtful examples! In a very real way, Meg practices hospitality by inviting us into her home with her family.”

As a mom of a rather agreeable 5-year-old and an otherwise strong-willed but oh so sweet 3-year-old, I’ve often found myself parenting one a bit different than the other and at times feeling guilty or questioning my approach. My kids are my world and I want nothing more than for them to feel the security that comes from both love and obedience.
“With All Joy, a book written by my dear friend and soon to be mom of 7, Meg Marie Wallace, is like receiving the sweetest encouragement from a mom that has come before you with the same struggles to provide insights that you wish you had known from day one! While she provides practical tips for training our children, helping to avoid or preempt disobedient moments, it’s the matters of the heart, specifically our dependence on Jesus and how that strengthens our bond with our children, that truly hit home! Every mom I know needs this!

“I can not recommend this little book on motherhood enough! It will encourage you to ‘parent in a way that is compassionate but controlled’ and is filled with practical wisdom on training and raising our children in a home that is filled with joy! A book equally focused on your heart as a mama and your child’s heart in your care.”
-Lindsey D., Sons (3, 1), expecting daughter in November 2019
“Meg’s book is full of insight I can use directly with my own children. This book is gold! It’s parenting and training advice is so complete and encouraging! If you have children in your life, this is an uplifting read you can’t miss.”
-Meghan C., Daughter (6), Son (2)
“I just finished Meg’s book and we are already starting some training! I just see things every day that I’m like oh boy we need to figure out training for that! It’s exciting, overwhelming, daunting… but I’m so hopeful! And thankful for a roadmap and guide to know where to begin! It’s really so helpful and there’s so much good information. I’m so excited to tell all my friends about it!!! We literally talk all the time about how we wish there was something that gave practical applications and not just the heart issue stuff. The heart issues are most important and definitely need to be addressed first and foremost over and over again, but then we’re always like BUT THEN WHAT?! And I feel like this is just that! I have thought for the longest time there has to be a better way! AND MEG HAS THE BETTER WAY!”
-Casey L., Son (4), Daughters (3, 1)Meg’s teaching is revolutionizing my parenting!
“Knowing Meg as a friend, along with reading her blog, I can say she lives her life with complete authenticity. She writes from a place of experience and truth and leaves you feeling inspired and utterly convicted in the sweetest way. My faith has been blessed by her wisdom, and I’m so excited to witness that wisdom transform our home and family, as we put this teaching into action! Phenomenal job Meg! I’ve already begun to witness a change in not just my parenting, but my own attitude and mindset. Love you friend!!!!
