Want a unique gift for the mothers in your life?

This little gem has it all! I laughed, cried and found myself nodding along with this delightful collection of anecdotes, advice, and famous quotes from and about mothers. Throw in a dozen easy recipes and a colorful, creative background and you have the makings of a wonderful, re-readable keepsake. "You Might Be a Mommy If..." had me rolling with understanding laughter.

I highly recommend this lovely gift book:

For new mommy's to start them on their journey
For in the middle mom's who need a new perspective and a boost to keep going
For mothers and grandmothers who have weathered the parental storms and will enjoy the reminiscing

A collaborative work of five experienced authors who have lived out the joys and challenges of motherhood, this book would make a wonderful shower gift, birthday gift or Mother's Day gift. Or even give it as an encouragement for a family member or friend who's having a difficult time in the parental realm. I also appreciated the inclusion of adoptive parenting difficulties and victories.

A Scrapbook of Motherhood Firsts is a must have for mothers-to-be, those who are in the thick of it, and us grandmas. The authors have stitched together their wide scope of experiences with sensitivity and grace. Not only is this well written book filled with practical advice, wisdom, and honest confessions but the cover and the unique interior design are a piece of art--each page is visually stimulating. A great value for the price!

As mothers, we all know how difficult our job can be as we strive to maintain some sort of balance, all while attempting to raise (and nurture) our children in the process. It's tough. It can be chaotic. And sometimes, it can be downright discouraging. Thankfully, this talented group of authors (comprised of super-knowledgeable moms), came together in order to produce "A Scrapbook of Motherhood Firsts": a beautifully written keepsake that all moms can learn from, laugh with, refer to, and enjoy. This sweet book will not only leave a smile on your face, but will renew your soul and warm your heart when you may need it the most. Packed with great tips, sweet humor, lots of wisdom, and a punch of faith, this book makes a wonderful gift for every mom, no matter what stage of motherhood she may be in. I highly recommend it! :)

If you are looking for a Mother's Day gift, you've found the right book. If you are also looking for a treat for yourself, you're also in the right place. This is a lovely book, with the prettiest design and graphics. This would make a terrific gift -- and not just at Mother's Day -- for a beloved mother, mother-in-law, aunt, cousin, Godmother or grandmother. Gift wrap a copy, bring a plate of cookies and a pitcher of lemonade and give the gift of time and talk and memory. The talented authors -- all blog buddies -- share their memories and it's a wonderful springboard to reflecting on memories you share with some of the dearest in your life. This will be my go-to gift for new moms and baby showers, and of course, for Mother's Day!

"A Scrapbook of Motherhood Firsts: Stories to Celebrate and Wisdom to Bless Moms" written by the Word Quilter's: Terra Hangen, Trish Berg, Cathy Messecar, Leslie Wilson and Karen Robbins is a delightful, humorous and touching look at motherhood. Each story is a special look into the lives of these Christain women and their journey as Moms. Gathering together so much collective wisdom, here is a group of women who successfully weave together their insights into a delightful book celebrating Moms. What a great book for all parents to read and cherish. Grandmothers and Grandfathers will enjoy reflecting on their experiences raising their children and learn new ways to appreciate their grandchildren.
There are wonderful one-liners such as " you might be a mommy if . . ." tasty recipes. and words of scripture. Terra Hangen shares her creative ways to inspire children to see nature as God's miracle. She speaks of saving spiders and letting them go free in the garden. What a valuable lesson for all of us to learn and teach our children and grandchildren that God's creatures are special. Fun activities include building a teepee for beans to grow over and planting seeds together. I appreciated the beautiful sentiments on the joys and woes of motherhood. I highly recommend this book especially with Mother's Day coming up on May 13th.

As a first-time mother, reading these stories made me breathe easy, feeling as if these moms were right next to me sipping their cups of tea, indulging me about their silly and wonderful stories, and mostly letting me know that I am, by far, not alone in this new motherhood adventure. Their wisdom is cherished by me and I also appreciate that it comes in tiny, beautifully colored doses as I only have tiny breaks in between caring for my little one. It would make for a great baby shower gift, or even a great gift for a mom who needs some extra special love and encouragement.

Purchased for a new mother. The stories were all very interesting and sweet. I did expect there to be space for a mother to write her own stories but there was not. it was a nice book to give.
