My review: Motherhood Matters by Connie Sokol
About the book: In these hectic days where life's demands can quickly become a heavy burden, Mom Rules: A Mother's Manual helps you find more memorable moments and take the stress out of the to-do lists. Written with clarity, concision, and wit, this indispensable handbook is better than flowers, more guilt-free than chocolate, and gives back to the woman who sacrifices so much of herself every single day.
This is a truly beautiful inspirational gift book launched into the world just in time for Mothers' Day. I loved (and related to just a tiny bit) the author's words in the introduction. She'd agreed to take on this project right about the time her oldest child went to college, her youngest started kindergarten, and she found out she was pregnant with her 7th. Coming from such a place, this book is nothing short of awesome.
Every mother has hard days. Every one of us feels we aren't doing enough, or that what we do doesn't count. This book is for those days. Think about all the mothers you know, and how much you want them to realize their worth, and then consider this book as an idea for Mothers' Day. You can purchase the book HERE or, if you're in UT, probably at your local bookstore. There are things I definitely miss about UT. :)
