On January 1, 2000, Holly Pierlot pounded her fist on the kitchen table and yelled at her husband, “I can’t take it anymore!”
Motherhood and homeschooling had overwhelmed her. The house was dirty, the laundry undone. Holly felt frustrated, discouraged, and alone. She couldn’t find time to snuggle and have fun with her five children or to go out with her husband. Yes, she loved Philip and she did love God, but she had come to resent Philip’s freedom and she almost never found time for prayer.
Today, everything’s better.
Holly still homeschools, but the house is cleaner, she gets more done, and the kids are happier. There’s less stress, less strife, and less housework. Holly’s been healed of past wounds that troubled her soul and her marriage. Best of all, she spends at least an hour each day in prayer and time each evening with Philip.
Holly brought about these changes with what she calls her Mother’s Rule of Life, a pattern for living that combines the spiritual wisdom of the monastery with the practical wisdom of motherhood.
Holly’s Rule is not just another set of schedules; it’s a way for Christian mothers to answer God’s call to holiness.
With the help of your own Rule, you can get control of your own household, grow closer to God, come to love your husband more, and raise up good Christian children. In these wise and practical pages, Holly shows you how.
Do you want to be a better wife and mother? To have more order in your life? To grow in union with God? Are you desperate yet?
With your own Mother’s Rule of Life, you’ll transform motherhood and its burdens into the joyful vocation it’s meant to be. Learn from Holly Pierlot how to craft a Rule that’s right for you and your family. Then use that Rule to help God draw you, your husband, and each of your children into Heaven!

Every mother should have this book.
A Mother's Rule of Life by Holly Pierlot has been such a blessing in my life. I've read it cover to cover. Twice. From the moment I picked it up I knew I had found a book written by a woman who at one point felt the overwhelming stress that I sometimes feel.
The first time I read this book I didn't take a single not or answer any of the questions. I thought about them a lot when I wasn't reading, but I didn't do anything with them. Once I finished it, I went back to page one and read it all again.
The second time through I started answering the questions. I kept a bind filled with paper near me all the time. Whenever I could find a free moment I was reading a bit more and writing a bit more. I even began implementing the bits and pieces of a schedule that were slowly coming out of my answers, notes, and thoughts.
