    A very intimate, raw and deeply relatable story. With hopes of becoming a mother myself someday in the near future, this book has become a foundation of how to gracefully raise my little ones on the firm ground of my cultural traditions and still be open to the ever changing and culturally diverse world we live in.

    This book is the support we all need as young mothers juggling career and family, It remains rooted in traditional values on raising children amidst the 21st century pressure. It gives grounded insights to raising all-round children. I still go back to read a chapter or two when lost for solutions to my own challenges of motherhood. Good Job Ms. Katende.

    The Memoirs of A Working Mother is not gender specific. It is an invaluable resource for dad’s aswell. The central idea is that intentionality has to be front and center of all parenting decisions. Instinctively parents know what is best for their children albeit at the risk of ridicule from friends and family. This book gives you the permission to do so. Well done Ese.

    Esther shares her story with such candidness and vulnerability. It is good to read about a mum who lives in the same era as me and to learn that you can intentionally raise a child. She gives great insights into the difficulties of being a working mum and how God brought her through.

    This book provides good counsel from someone that seeks and knows God. Without counsel purposes are disappointed: But in the multitude of counsellors they are established – Proverbs 15:22. This is a must read for parents wanting to raise godly generations.

    As a mother of three, after the Bible, this has been the most practical book that has aided me along my intentional parenting journey. Not only did Esther break down how to adequately prepare for the different stages of childhood but showed me how a working mother can beautifully navigate and balance the different roles and challenges of life. I absolutely recommend this as a must read!

    Esther Katende’s book was an eye opener for me in many aspects. I wished it had been published much earlier when my children were much younger! After reading it, I prayed to God to give me another child so that I could do exactly what I learnt from therein and luckily, God being at the centre of it all answered my prayers and I will soon be a Mum again!!! Thanks for the inspiration Esther. For all the parents out there who have not read this book yet, I highly recommend that you do so.

    Esther Katende’s Memoirs of a Working Mum is not a book filled with anecdotes on parenting but rather a very vital and practical child rearing tool that offers insightful guidance and wisdom on how to make the journey not just bearable but more importantly enjoyable. It is a practical tool for any one who knows and understands that raising children is a calling and ministry worthy of the deliberate measures and steps which this book so eloquently highlights.
