After the beautiful artwork that opens each part, the author provides her experiences on the topic, includes a prayer, and ends each entry with applicable scripture. Clifford discusses her experiences as a new mom and wife as she covers a range of topics from mom guilt to playing "defense" with a toddler and improving self-control to good communication. Clifford includes topics related to family, difficult days, learning self-control, fertility challenges, moving to a different country, and choosing forgiveness - even when it's hard. The author offers advice about navigating the awkwardness of blended families and building and maintaining friendships, reminding us to pray and build our relationships with God and others through faith.

Regina Clifford shares the lessons she's learned and her growing relationship with God as she finds a reason to be thankful for challenges. The author invites readers to walk through moments of her life as she reveals her feelings about some deeply personal issues. Clifford helps women who may feel alone at certain points in their lives feel hope that their struggles will only last a season and that joy may be found with consistent communication with God, the source of our strength. I felt comforted as I read Clifford's words. I suffer from parental guilt and need to connect with God more frequently. Readers who are ready to express gratitude daily and relate to a woman who has been through similar circumstances will enjoy See the Good/God in Everything.

Marriage, parenthood, and family dynamics are complex and challenging. However, Regina Clifford's See the Good/God in Everything offers a heartfelt, authentic exploration of these themes through a personal narrative and scriptural reflections that are as engaging as they are inspiring. Whether you're navigating the initial stages of motherhood or dealing with the daily challenges of a marital relationship, Clifford suggests that seeing the presence of God in every situation can transform perspectives and fortify your spiritual journey. She writes about her journey and skillfully weaves her prayers, best practices, and meditations into the book. Readers will discover the rich traditions she rediscovered after giving birth, adhering to rituals, and connecting to her faith.

Regina Clifford's book is not about coping with life. It is more about celebrating it. Her prayers testify to this, as does her attitude toward tradition, such as celebrating major religious holidays like Christmas and Easter, and her experience that can be as much about church history as personal faith. It's less about the commercial aspects and more about teaching the story of Jesus, celebrating His birth, acknowledging His death, and rejoicing in His resurrection. See the Good/God in Everything brilliantly captures the author’s faith, experience, and insights. It can be read as a self-help book, but the anecdotes are as humorous as they are informative. She writes about friendship, family, love, and marriage with conviction and charm. The biblical references are spot on and designed to move readers toward a greater consciousness of the presence of God in their unique human experiences.
