Thoughts from Readers 

"Filled With Goodness. . .

I have visited Mrs Whites blog for many years but this is the first book of hers I have purchased. She writes in a simple, clear and gentle style which is soothing to the nerves. It is uplifting and beautiful. God must have placed a special blessing on her words because they are powerful in a way I cannot explain.
Reading Mrs White is like coming home.
I would recommend her work to anyone. "

- Susan, from Amazon (UK)


 "Such a Treasure. . .
I absolutely love Mrs. Sharon White's books and this one doesn't disappoint. I read her books over and over again and I still find inspiration each time I re-read. I very much recommend this book. She's a homemaker and shares her family and thoughts with the reader. Such a sweet view of life and how to be the best I can be. I look forward to reading this again and again. She doesn't steer away from tough things. She has very terrible health and shares with me how to do little bits of work and to take frequent rests. Health issues do not hold her back nor should they hold me back. She is such an encourager."

- Bina, Amazon

 "Another Inspiring Book . . .
I’ve been waiting and hoping Mrs. White would write another book and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one. I have all of her books and enjoy reading them again and again. She inspires and encourages me to realize how blessed I am to have a wonderful husband and home to care for. She reminds the reader of what’s truly important in life: faith, family and home. "

CoalCity Girl, Amazon

"Wonderful Read. . .

I absolutely loved this book! Mrs. White brings so many stories of homemaking, family, cozy, and calm. She shares stories that inspire and uplift readers and encourages those who treasure the time spent at home. I enjoyed pouring a cup of coffee and settling down to read a chapter here and there. Highly recommend!"

Billie Jo, Amazon


The book is called:  "Homemaking for Happiness: Wonderful Days at Home." It is available for sale at Amazon.

I hope you enjoy reading it, and that you find it helpful in your own homemaking.

I am not very good at marketing or trying to get the word out. Any help in spreading the word would be very much appreciated.  Also, if you are able to write a review on Amazon, it would be so helpful! Thank you so much!

Mrs. White

I'm so happy to see that you have a new book! I love to read your blog and I cant wait to be able to read it.
I'm from Portugal and I'm also a homemaker, trying to do my best for God and through Him.

I will look on Amazon to see if it is available in UK.

Regina said...

Congratulations on your new book. That's so exciting! I'm trying to think of ways to market you book. Your first step already was mentioning it here!🙂
I think other ladies have:
Had giveaways

Offer a limited number of free copies with the agreement they will post a review on their social platform whether that be a blog or something plus leave review on Amazon

Done blog tours of ladies who've read your book

Have a limited number ladies order directly from you and you could give them one free copy to be used in a giveaway but keep track of who is participating. Again, I would limit this amount so you don't end of losing money.

If I think of other ideas, I'll let you know.

Thank you for publishing a new book! We buy your books for me but also for our upcoming home school class about homemaking. Our girls are still little ages 2 to 7, so it is still down the road but I'm preparing the class now, so it will be ready. It is going to be an ongoing unit each year probably starting in fourth grade called "Homemaking".

I received my copy of your new book today. I love it. It is such a pleasant, comfortable read. Need a copy of hot chocolate, a warm throw, and a cozy corner if it were winter). But now is good, too. Blessings.
