Nancy Wilson begins with the kitchen table, remembering how each scratch and stain in the wood chronicles "hours of stories and jokes, questions and concerns (through courtships and pregnancies), prayers and discussions." She continues, each essay full of stories and encouragement—the beauty of imperfection, the comfort of Velveeta, the strengths of mothers- and daughters-in-law, the honesty that is submission, the laughter of reading aloud. As ever, while Nancy draws out our sins and weaknesses and sore spots, she comforts us with the favor of God and rouses us to a joyous faith.

Heartwarming, Relatable Stories and Practical Wisdom

I've thoroughly enjoyed reading Building Her House by Nancy Wilson. It's full of heartwarming, relatable stories and practical wisdom. I've particularly loved learning about Sabbath dinners, how to raise sons, and how to best support a husband. So many good nuggets inside!

Little nuggets of wisdom

Nancy Wilson has so many quick tips. Each chapter stands alone, so you can easily find what you need and you can skip the chapters that don't apply...I plan on giving this to all my friends.

Helpful and easy to read

Even as a not-so-young wife and mother, I appreciated this book and her wise insights. This is the kind of book I think all wives/mothers can benefit from rereading every now and then.
