This book was recommended by another mom. At first it sounds like something for first time moms. This is not the case. Each chapter is easy to read with lots of great ideas and suggestions. Lisa talks about taking care of youself so you can be a better mom. Every chapter focuses on the mom in different areas. Then at the end of each chapter, Lisa shares suggestions to accomplish it. She encourages moms to try one new thing, but to not feel guilty if you don't do them all. And a bonus of this book is that you can go online and receive an email encouraging you to put it into action. You can select a topic to work on for 21 days. I just finished working on cleaning your home. Everyday I got an encouraging email with tips and a prayer. It was really amazing. At the end of the 21 days, you select another topic. This is all free for those who purchase this book. I highly suggest it to any mom regardles of age or number of children!

What a positive, encouraging book from one of my favorite "celebrity" authors.

Lisa Whelchel writes with realism and honesty, but she also offers hope and help. Anyone trying to be a better mom (or trying to accept herself while working on it) will find useful information here! I've already discovered a few favorite chapters that I read and re-read often.

Great book! A purchase you won't regret.

If you're a single mother, I also highly recommend:

I have been waiting days to finish reading this book so that I can share it with you. "Taking Care of the 'Me' in Mommy" by Lisa Whelchel contains a wealth of information from resources to encouragement. Lisa includes 23 short chapters which are each divided into two parts; part two is a "rest stop" in which she gives a list of ideas to help moms accomplish a task and part one provides a biblical and personal perspective about that task. Here's a sample of the some of the topics she shares: Spiritual Balance, Physical Balance, Balance in the Home, Balancing the Hubby Factor, Balancing Friends, Financial Balance, Mental Balance, and just plan fun.

Do I recommend this book? Definitely. In fact, I would consider it one of my top recommendations for any mom just because of the wealth of information provided. It's an easy read and a read you could easily divide and read in small segments which is also helpful for us moms. In addition, she has several links and resources on her website. Check it out. There may be something there that will spark your interest and help you take time for the "me in mommy."

Wow! Since becoming a mom, I've had less time to read, but this was a quick read that proved inspiring. With tons of ideas on all aspects of your life, Lisa encourages you to pick one. I will definitely be reading and rereading this. My husband has liked the changes that I have implemented.
