"Motherhood is a divine calling, not an afterthought."
I love the fact that Connie Sokol has written a book not only to mothers but about mothers. It is nice to see that others feel the same way. I love that she says:
"Motherhood is the very essence of who we are."
Now that is so true. Our children are examples of us as parents.
Connie brings up alot of spiritual factors in this novel and I was in awe of this. When I first gave birth to my son...I mean what a miracle. At that moment there would never be any doubts that there is a God. Children are a true blessing and a gift from God and we as mothers have the greatest responsibility to them to make sure they live their life as God would have wanted.
All in all this is full of wonderful yet true examples of being a mother and portrays the utter truths about motherhood. I loved every moment of it.
There's also a little section on how to handle life, not if, but when, your children rebel/stray/become difficult. I loved that because I'm not alone--even scriptural parents dealt with similar parenting problems. I'm feeling good about my efforts and think this book is a great read for any mother.
*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
As the mother of 5, I sometimes forget about the joys of motherhood. Especially with the youngest who has major special needs, but going back over the course of my life with my children I thought of all the times I had stayed up late into the night to finish their costumes, or bake cupcakes that they had forgotten to tell me they needed the very next day, and I realized that I loved every second of being a mother. I loved all the different stories that were inspired by others.
While this book is written with LDS mother's in mind it is not strictly an LDS mothers book. As a woman who is NOT an LDS, I still found the book enjoyable to read. While the use of scriptures was liberal, I didn't have any issues with their use what-so-ever.
Details/Disclaimer: Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review
This would make a great Mother's Day gift. It's a book you can easily read in one sitting or you can just read a short 2-4 page chapter when you need a little motivation and reminder that being the mom although difficult at times is definitely worth it.
