First, I do not give 5-star book ratings lightly...like ever. Many would find this to be a 5-star book, I'm just super stingy with my stars!

[UPDATE: Changing my rating from 4 to 5 stars. The more I read, the more I realized this is a 5-star book. I'm three-quarters of the way through now and still really enjoying it. Most articles/chapters take about 5 minutes to read. OK, continue with original review...]

I am currently halfway through reading this book but I wanted to take the time to write a quick review to let others know how valuable this book has already been for me. I'm a mom, so it may take me a while to get through reading it all, but I didn't want you all to have to wait until I've finished to hear about it!

Power of Moms, the organization behind this book, is a wonderful online community with uplifting and practical advice and support for "deliberate" mothers--mothers who think critically about how they mother and try to give their best as often as possible (no one is perfect!). This book is a compilation of the best articles the Power of Moms community of mothers has shared online. Each chapter is one article, so they are very easy to read and finish in a short chunk of time (10 min or less). The articles/chapters are grouped into several, meaningful sections so you can jump around from section to section and read what interests you, or read the book from beginning to end.

As valuable as each article is, I think it's the questions and challenges listed at the end of each article that make the messages of this book stand out. So often I'm inspired by something I read...but I'm inspired only for a moment. Sometimes nothing changes in my life, even if change is what I had hoped for after finishing the article.

I am one of the contributors to the book, so yes, I'm a bit biased. But yesterday, I sat down to read through some of the chapters. And I found myself getting emotional over the words and ideas, even though I've read them before. This says to me, that the book is full of life-truths that will bless moms everywhere. Most helpful I think is the redefining of social media's concept of a "good mom." This book will help moms see their strengths and how to utilize them in their mothering. It will help moms realize they are (and always have been) the right mother for their children. It will help them appreciate more moments, be present, and better enjoy the journey of motherhood. As we take this message to more and more mothers, we can create a force of women who, rather than compare skill sets and accomplishments, sustain and encourage one another. Something I believe the world and our children need.

This isn't parenting advice and stories from doctors or physiologists. It is from real life mothers. Every word was motivational and inspiring. This book moved me in so many ways.

Motherhood Realized is an encouraging read for mothers everywhere. The book is divided into 4 sections (all of which are topics moms need to read about!):

1. Becoming Our Best Selves
2. Getting Through Hard Times
3. Shifting Our Perspectives
4. Savoring Moments

The entire book is a collection of favorite posts that originally appeared on the Power of Moms blog. One thing I absolutely love about the book is that it is easily digestible. Moms are busy people, so it's hard to find time to read a long chapter in a book. Because this particular book is a collection of short (but powerful!) blog posts, the chapters are do-able for even the busiest of moms.

Each chapter concludes with a reflection question and a challenge to help moms apply the theme to their lives.

I have loved the Power of Moms blog for years, but if it's possible, I think I love this book even more. It's provided a one-stop-spot for some of the best posts about motherhood.

*I received this book for review, but all opinions are my own.

This is a sweet read with some very experiences of Motherhood contained within. I did enjoy it and it had some great moments. HOWEVER, there is one aspect of the book that was a turn off for me....... there were enough repeated references to prayer, church, etc that it came across to me as a veiled compilation of something more like Christian Motherhood Realized. Not that I really have anything against Christianity perse, though I am myself agnostic and don't appreciate religiousness being rammed down my throat in any way, shape or form. The religious references are not overwhelming and can be overlooked, which is what I did. Though I bought this as a gift for a best friend, who is also agnostic, and I was also concerned as to how she would feel about the religious references. All this being said, I would not rule out the book for the abovementioned reasons. I only would have liked to know what I was getting into.

I have to say this book has changed me. It has changed my attitude towards my mothering, children and family. It has stuck with me in my everyday mothering things like changing diapers and doing laundry. The positive force it has brought into my days has left me feeling so grateful to have read this book! It is perfect for me I can read a lot in one sitting or bits and pieces here and there and still get inspired to do better or to be more real as a mother. Highly recommend this book no matter what stage of mothering you are in!
