Book Review

Crystal Horton’s Book “Stretch Marks” Shares Insights from Her Parenting Journey

“If you’re a parent who craves a kindred spirit, another friendly voice who offers support for “the hardest thing a person can do,” I recommend this book.”

— Dr. Denny Coates, Parenting Author


A fantastic, fun, and easy read. Crystal Horton does a great job of writing chapters that include stories that will touch your heart, make you laugh, and make you think. Crystal “opens her soul” in this book but also find ways to put in great little “ahas” that will make you smile and chuckle. I personally love the last chapter. What’s it about? Well I don’t want to ruin it for you, but it completed the book in the best way possible. It touched and warmed my heart, and those feelings would summarize this book for me. It is a great gift to the mothers in your life, but even as a young man I found great value reading this work.   -Ryan B.

I absolutely loved this book! I am a single mother of 1 beautiful daughter!. This is such a great parenting guide! I will forever be thankful for Crystal’s insight and how she dealt with her own situations children. This book was a blessing and couldn’t have been released at a better time for me. A great read and must have for all parents.  -Shaye S.

I really enjoyed this book! I am a mother of 3 and purchased this book for myself and for a friend of mine as a baby shower gift! This was her first child & she enjoyed this book as much as I did. I really loved the way Crystal shared her experiences with loss, joy, and the never ending beautiful love & chaos that our children supply! -Renee A.

Great book! Love the importance of having effective/meaningful family communication and self-awareness this book shared with me. I feel like I forget the simple things we can do as parents and this book reminded me of those little things that make a huge difference! -Janna H.

This book is such a great parenting guide! It made me feel better to know I am not the only parent going through certain milestones with my children. It’s full of insight and a great look into the author and how she handles situations with her own children. I would definitely recommend this book. -Shalah A.
