"Korie’s commentary on being an 'intentional parent' was insightful, and two of my favorite sections were 'Patience and Contentment' and 'The Value of Being Kind.' I am also glad that Korie included a section highlighting three fun games to play with your kids." –Oak Tree Reviews
"Reading Strong and Kind is like having a cup of coffee with Korie and Willie while listening to their wisdom from twenty years of parenting. The author didn’t fill it with boring facts or statistics. Nor did she come across as a Ms. Know It All in her advice. They came across a down home country folks just sharing their hearts on the matter of raising our kids to be upstanding citizens in this crazy world we’re living in." –TidbitsOfExperience.com
"Ultimately, Strong and Kind, filled with real life stories from Korie and Willie’s parenting journey, is a straightforward, gently instructive call to not just be the best parents you can be, but also the best people you can be." –14-in-2014.com
