How Many Times Do I Have to Tell You? (Apologia Educational Ministries, March 2015)

You’ve probably said these things to your kids, but have you listened to what you’re saying?

“I remember the day you were born.”

“Turn down the music!”

“This is going to hurt me more than it’s going to hurt you.”

“Hold my hand.”

Your heavenly Father wants to tell you many of these same things. Rachael Carman knows how noisy it can be when you’re raising children—she has seven! But this lovely devotional book will help you to hear God’s still, small voice amid the chaos of carpools, cut fingers, and carpet crawlers. You’ll learn how to recognize God’s instructions for you, even as you seek to follow His example as a parent.

  • Sometimes, you need to just keep your mouth shut, be still and let Him do the talking to you. Let HIM say the words. Let HIM speak through you.

    Rachel Carman goes through this in her book How Many Times Do I Have To Tell You. Being able to use your words with love, even discipline with love in the words you say, Rachael gives us tried and true options and then offers introspect after each subject. This book gives you a glimpse into what to say, how to say it and ways to stifle your tongue and use your words to build up, no matter what the subject.

  • There are so many things as parents that we say that we told ourselves we would absolutely, never ever say to our children. Life is crazy. Life with kids is even crazier. Some of the crazy is joyful and wonderful while some of the crazy just makes you go crazy (and not in a good way!). It is so easy to get caught up in stuff that doesn’t matter and lose sight of the goal and the important things. This book calls us all to take a second, breathe and focus on the bigger picture. I love that reminders to calm myself in the terrible chaos and focus. We know what Carman is saying is true and we have those truths deep down but when chaos is erupting it is too easy to forget everything we stand for and hope for. I highly recommend this book to all moms. It is a nice read to center yourself on your truths and goals.

  • A BLOG TOUR AND BOOK REVIEW

    This is a very different parenting book than I have read in a while, but that is a good thing. It is an encouraging read that meets the reader right where they are. In the midst of the sometimes messy journey we call parenthood. The book is organized so nicely and that makes it perfect for reading from cover to cover or reading only the chapters that you need for the place you may be in as a parent.
    The whole book is awesome, but I especially loved being reminded to pray, especially in the tough times, to remember that God’s timing is what it is all about, that we are here for a reason, that we need to put God first so that we can be the best parent He wants us to me, and that we are never alone on this journey, even if we sometimes feel like it.

  • From words of love to words of wisdom, from words of caution to words of correction, author Rachael Carman reminds us that God, as our most loving Father, has these very words for us as well. Would it benefit you to be reminded that He remembers the day you were born? Children love to hear how excited their parents were to see them for the first time, and how much they are loved and wanted. Your Father in heaven wants you to know these things, too. We may need reminding to stay close, listen, rest, stop whining, be still, and trust.

  • HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU? BY RACHAEL CARMAN #LITFUSEREADS

    I think How Many Times Do I Have To Tell You? By Rachael Carman is very well written. I love how Rachael Carman used personal stories form her own family in writing the book and setting up the lessons. I also love that it has a “moment of introspection”, or questions, for us at the end of each section. We can use the story and the introspection to really take a look at our own lives and see how it fits for us.

    In one section her son Charles bakes a cake and uses a lot of substitutions, against the recipes instructions. The cake doesn’t turn out as planned. It goes on to explain that this is like the “recipe for life” that God has chosen for us. He does not want us to make substitutions to his rules for us. If we take the time to really listen to what He is saying to us, our life won’t…

    Where was this book when my husband and I were raising four boys??? Author Rachael Carman takes scripture and some of the most frequent questions parents regularly deal with and combines them all to have one of the liveliest advice book that I’ve had the pleasure of reading in a long time.

    How Many Times Do I Have To Tell You? would make a wonderful gift for both new parents and those who are already in the parenting trenches. I particularly loved how Carman intertwines stories of her own family’s experiences throughout the book – as a mom of seven, Carman walks the walk and talks the talk with her advice!

    I highly recommend this book!

    “Clean up your toys.” “Pick up your shoes.” “Don’t jump on the couch.” “Help your sister.” “Don’t hit your sister.” “Talk nicely to each other.”

    These are a few of the things I find myself saying frequently to my girls. If you’re a parent, I’m sure you have a list of things you find yourself saying over and over again too. In her book How Many Times Do I Have to Tell You?, Rachael Carman uses these oft-repeated phrases as a way to draw us closer to God.

  • HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU? {RACHAEL CARMAN}

    Being a parent is hard. I don’t think this is news to anyone who has kids. With two little ones at my house, I feel like I’m always telling them what to do, teaching them about what they did wrong, or bugging them about something they haven’t done yet. No matter how much I try, I always end up saying something that sounds just like my mother. There are days when I am pretty sure that neither of my children have ever heard a single word I’ve ever said.

While she has authored several books this is the first real opportunity I have had to read her writing.

More importantly as a momma, as a home educator, she helps me to believe that I can be what my children need me to be. Because we are victorious in Christ.

  • REVIEW: HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU? BY RACHAEL CARMAN

    This is a devotional book. It is not a parenting guide. Having said that, it may help you to have more patience with your children. It may also help you see areas of your life that you need to work on yourself. It’s awful easy as adults to expect certain behaviors from our children when we’ve not fully mastered them ourselves. This is especially true of our relationship with out heavenly father.

    I hope that you find this book to be as much of an encouragement as I did! If you’d like to read this book, I’m giving away my copy so that I can be a blessing to another mom (or dad) who needs it!

  • BOOK REVIEW: HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU? BY RACHAEL CARMAN

    If you can get through ONE chapter without laughing and smiling in parental acknowledgement of ‘ been there got that t-shirt”, I’d be VERY surprised! Rachel shares stories and moments that we can all relate to- calling kids by the wrong name, sending them 3 aisles over in the store for a product they don’t return with, watching your kids walk half a block to a friend’s house “just on case”, or cake sizes not being equal. Parenthood can be tough, but Rachael shares her tales and then relates them to us as moments to see God’s hand urging us to stop and see the beauty around us, to stop stressing to much, or even just to hear without distraction what God is telling you. She ends each of the 68 small chapters (each based on a common parental comment) with a “Moment of Introspection” to focus on that chapter’s topic in your life, and how you can address it better.

    This book is perfect for new moms, but best for busy, time laden moms, who need to remember to pause and enjoy all of God’s bounty and grace, an important lesson in this Lenten season! I highly recommend it for all your friends and family members with kids- it’s the perfect pick me up- funny and full of wisdom from a mother of 7 kids!

  • HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU? BY RACHAEL CARMAN

    Rachael Carman is refreshingly real and speaks from the heart in her book, How Many Times Do I Have to Tell You? The message is delivered along with personal stories to illustrate that she struggles as a parent at times, just like the rest of us. At first glance, I thought the focus was on children but I soon discovered that it was for adults! How Many Times Do I Have to Tell You? is God talking to parents. Yes, indeed! We are God’s children, are we not?

    Chapter titles like “Slow down!”, “I’m Not Talking to Them, I’m Talking to You” and “Let’s Go for a Walk” are short but richly written. They made me see my relationship with my children in a whole new way. It made me think about how I talk to my children and what I expect from them. Since reading this book, I’ve renewed my words with love and my patience has increased. It was just what I needed to recharge my parental battery! I highly recommend this book!

    Rachael Carman impressed me with her book, How to Have a HEART for Your Kids and How Many Times Do I Have to Tell You? affected me the same way. I love how she thinks and her love for the Lord is evident throughout her writing. Thank you for sharing your heart, Rachael Carman!

  • HOW MANY TIMES REVIEW

    The book is filled with devotions with phrases we parents hear ourselves say frequently – “Slow down!”, “Hold my hand.”, “Answer me when I call you.”, “Please stop that.” and “I love you.” as well as many others. Each devotion is related to one phrase, and Carman tells what she believes God is saying to us through these words. For example, the phrase “Stop whining!” to us might be our reminder that God is our Provider and reminding us to be more positive. There are reflective questions at the end of each devotion which really added to the devotional.

    I enjoyed this book a lot and loved Carman’s writing style and honesty. I think every mom will see a bit of herself in this book.

    Every little chapter in this book shares a personal story followed by some godly words of wisdom, things to ponder, and scriptures. Then at the end of every chapter she shares “a moment of introspection” which are some questions to ask yourself that relate to what was just shared in the chapter.

    I thought Carman’s book was personal and relatable to most parents. It was readable and very devotional. Funny and heartwarming.
    But, it was not grounded in Scripture enough for me. I need the help of the Word of God (in books is fine) but this just didn’t have enough of that for me.

  • A NEW KIND OF DEVOTIONAL!

    I have been a fan of the curriculum side of Apologia for years. So when the opportunity came up to review a book from Rachael Carman, I jumped at it. And I’m so glad that I did. How Many Times Do I Have To Tell You? is a fun, encouraging book for any mom. With chapter titles like ‘Come Here!,’ Answer Me When I Call You!,’ and “Please Stop That!’ I’m sure every mom can relate to the lessons and stories in this book. Rachael takes many of the phrases that moms use on their children every day and turns them into lessons on what God wants us to hear.

    At the end of each chapter, there is a moment of introspection section. With questions and prayer prompts for a mom to journal or just pray through the lessons in the chapter, these sections are brief but helpful.I loved it!

  • HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU?

    If I’m being honest I only received this book a few days ago, so I haven’t gotten too far yet, but it’s not what I thought it was. I thought it was a book on how to be a godly parent, or how to NOT use the typical “mom” phrases with your kids, but it turned out to be a daily devotional. I was hoping it was a parenting book, but I can already tell that I will enjoy this book. Each chapter is about 3 pages, and very easy to get through. While I haven’t found too many shockingly profound things yet, I still think it’s a nice light devotional for people who want something short. I’ve been reading CS Lewis and John Piper lately, so it’s a nice change of pace. Some nights you want something deep and very thought provoking, other nights you want something that will bless you with limited time.

    My heart was cheered that love was the main theme in this book, which is as it should be! Raising and working with little ones is tough work that is not glamorous and tests you to your limits. But just like God works in love towards us, so we should be working in love with the children He has placed in our lives. My favorite quote from the book came from page 95: “Love leaves room for improvement.” Isn’t that beautiful? I think that’s a principle I need to remember every day.

In her book, Rachael invites her readers to think about the things we say to our children day after day and consider whether God is trying to say the exact same thing to us.It was easy to draw the connection with several of her chapter titles, however, I’m sad to say that the book fell a little flat for me.

    How Many Times Do I Have To Tell You? by Rachael Carman is a great little devotional for women.

    Rachael has a way of speaking to one like a trusted friend…a friend who has allowed God’s Words to shape her life. She has taken her everyday experiences…gleaned from motherhood and woven them into a devotional that mothers and women will resonate with.

    Short chapters that may be quickly read and implemented. God’s truths…simply explained and easily practiced.

    Rachael reminds us that many of the principles we try to instill in our children’s lives are the very ones our Heavenly Father is trying to teach us.

    I truly enjoyed reading and learning from this devotional. I believe women of all ages could learn many valuable lessons from Rachael’s book.

    Rachael Carman provides an insightful and thought-provoking book organized around phrases commonly used by parents. In each section she encourages the reader to think about not only how using the phrase impacts a child, but what God may be trying to teach you through the behavior of your children. After each phrase-based entry there is a moment of introspection section which provides the reader with a few prompts/questions to spur further thought.

    While this complimentary book was provided for review by LitFuse Publicity Group, no other compensation was given. All remarks are my personal and honest opinions.

  • GOOD REMINDER THAT GOD’S MESSAGE IS FOR ALL OF US

    You’ll likely recognize many of the statements in this book, either as something you’ve heard from a maternal figure or maybe a phrase you use with your own children. Each short chapter offers a moment of introspection, with several questions that encourage self-reflection. Carman’s thoughts are supported by scripture, taking Biblical application seriously and appropriately. As the title might suggest, this book is targeted to parents, although some of the messages could also be applied to non-parental figures. It’s helpful, though, to realize that God’s message is for EVERYONE, parent or not! So even if you don’t have children, you can still have a meaningful experience with the book.

  • HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU | RACHAEL CARMAN

    The dare…

    The author gives her readers a challenge — list the top 10 things you hear yourself say most often to your kids; then ask your kids to list the top 10 things they hear you say most frequently.

    Rachel say the resulting lists will give you a starting place to explore the things God wants you to hear.

    Did you take the challenge? You really should, you know…

    Throughout the book — each chapter — Rachael speaks of God; his amazing love, his blessings, the salvation that is meant as a gift for each of us.

    Since I am sure of my salvation, perhaps the most important message in this book for me, is the suggestion to focus on communicating God’s love and your love to your children (and grandchildren), giving them a foundation of a real, lasting and perfect love — God’s love…

  • This book is a reformatting and renaming of an older book by Rachael. The book goes through different things that we say to our children and what God may be trying to say to us through that same sort of thing as our heavenly Father. Rachael adds in many stories for her life raising her seven children.

    The book makes for a great read that you can finish and walk away feeling centered and a little better. It has great focus and tips. I think the author has a wonderfully way of connecting with parents and really people overall. The book is great for adults to build and learn more in faith.

  • HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU?

    I was totally hooked on this book from page one. I could not put it down and felt as if each story was my own. Carman shares wonderful stories/lessons with the reader that are so very touching, funny, and sometimes sad. The moments of introspection at the end of each story were so helpful in summing up my own reactions or feelings that were unearthed in each story.

  • EXCELLENT PARENTING BOOK!

    I would recommend this amazing book to every single parent who is seeking to learn how to improve their parenting skills and they are wanting to help their children learn more about Christ and His infinite love for them. I really liked how transparent Rachael Carman was in sharing personal stories in each chapter to teach a valuable lesson she learned in parenting her own kids. It had very practical Christian parenting principles enclosed throughout the entire book that will assist parents and help them to convey God’s love to their children and it contained helpful questions at the end of each chapter. I also liked how this book could be read like a parenting devotional and this is especially beneficial for the busy parent.
