I love this book. It tells the history of the hope chest and how it is more than a place to store things a girl may need in her married life, it is also a record of the skills gained by a girl and young woman that she can use some day in the caring of her home.

I really enjoyed this book ! it was very helpful. It did not put to much stress on haveing a actual chest , but more the sentament and love behind the idea. I also liked the ideas of having one whether you are already married , or for your children or even if you are a boy ! :) ( I thought that was too cool ! ) Highly recommend this one !

A little redundant but that's to be expected in a book of this nature. TRULY helpful in building daughters' hope chests. We are all excited to start adding stuff to them. It had chapters on weddings and showers and that got everything to thinking about what kinds of things they would want then too.

Recommended for good advice on hope chests.
