easy to read, easy to apply ideas connected with being better stewards of God's great earth
Christine
A compelling, well-written book for aspiring environmental mommies, Green Mama manages to fulfill its "guilt-free" promise with solid, simple advice that's easy — for even the busiest moms! — to implement. "Leaving things better than I found them even started to seem, well, a little like something Jesus would do," says Bianchi.

Bianchi's appealing slice-of-life stories, which preface each chapter, document her struggle to balance consumerism with God's call to stewardship. Green Mama: The Guilt-F

Going green is a popular topic now-a-days. We’re inundated with suggests for electric cars, getting new heat pumps, water heaters, etc, and getting rid of our old appliances and buying new “greener” ones. But sometimes our financial situation just doesn’t allow that. So how can you go green without going into debt?

This book is about "greening" your family's life as a mother. What distinguishes this from other green parenting books is that it includes scriptural references and encourages parents to see how intertwined a life of faith (in this book, the Christian faith in particular) is with living a life rooted in taking care of the Earth, i.e. minimizing the waste of resources, mitigating materialism (and the concomitant waste of resources), taking care of the Earth and, in turn, other people's children i ...more

Great book in many respects, challenging and inspiring, though just occasionally I found it guilt-inducing rather than inspiring. At other times I was shocked by things that the author considered to be "good steps you could consider to help save the planet" - in some cases I couldn't believe that they wouldn't be considered general common sense and non-wastefulness, but that may be a cultural divide.

My main disappointment was that too much of the book was specifically geared to and therefore onl

This book spoke to my heart. She shares my passion! Living green to honor God and the planet He allows us to inhabit--His creation. She gives you very practical ideas without being condemning and while acknowledging that being green and a mom is not always easy--but here's some ideas for you! I really loved that she included not just environmental but social justice as well. I've not come across many books like this in the Christian world--this was so refreshing! Thank you Tracey!

I really liked this book for what it was: an informative and practical guide to being more Eco-friendly. There were some easily doable steps that anyone can take to show better stewardship over the earth. I would recommend it, and will put it on my wish list to own do that I can refer to it again and again.

Read w book club. All discovered a few new ideas to implement into our families lives thru majority of book. Ending kinda started to lose us. Seemed too "preachy" even for a book that's goal was to show how caring for the earth is caring for gods gift to us.
