"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The days are long, but the years are short.
No matter if it’s your child’s first step, first day of school, or first night tucked away in a new dorm room away from home, there comes a moment when you realize just how quickly the years are flying by. Christian music artist Nichole Nordeman’s profound lyrics in her viral hit “Slow Down” struck a chord with moms everywhere, and now this beautiful four-color book will inspire you to celebrate the everyday moments of motherhood.
Filled with thought-provoking writings from Nichole, as well as guest writings from friends including Shauna Niequist and Jen Hatmaker, practical tips, and journaling space for reflection, Slow Down will be a poignant gift for any mom, as well as a treasured keepsake.
Take a few moments to reflect and celebrate the privilege of being a parent and getting to watch your little ones grow—and Slow Down.
This book come to me at a point in my life that it needed to, I guess. It came when one of my older children were fighting me for independence and I'm feel like they should try harder to be independent but still hold on to the morals that were taught them.
When do we as parents come to grips that we are no longer in control of our children? When do we go say you know what my hands are off of this? There is a world out there ready to gobble them up and its real hard as a parent to allow them to go off in it and its hard to decide how hard to hold on.
The author has written a book of encouragement for those moms that seem like they can never do anything right with their kids. That no matter what they do, its all wrong. Nichole writes true statements from the heart. They really hit home with my mommy moments and I know it could work for you to. Each chapter has questions to ponder and space to write.
Great coffee table book or a baby shower gift!
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. All opinions are my own.
I am all about books, songs, poems, movies, and articles that remind me to take a deep breath, live in the moment, and enjoy my child's childhood, because in a blink of an eye, it will be over.
The other day a guy I work with told me that once your kids grow up, Christmas starts to loose it's magic again. As a child, you believe in Santa. Then you grow up and realize he is make believe. But once you have children, the magic comes alive again. Remember, though, as quick as it returns, it will once again fade away.
Just this morning, I had to remind myself to slow down. Jimmie asked me to sit with him while he watched his morning TV show and drank his milk, something he has done since he started drinking out of a straw cup just as he turned one. I told him I had to go do a few things but I would sit with him in a bit. Finally I said to myself, sitting with him is way more important than doing my "stuff." So we snuggled and I tried to remember his baby smell, it is all gone now, and told myself one day he would be too big to snuggle. One day, he will be too old to want to sit with me. Until then, my stuff can wait, I will continue to tell myself to slow down.
Not only is this book a collection of lovely life stories about having children, it also has space for you to write in and reflect on your journey through motherhood.
Thank you Nichole Nordman for a wonderful song and a wonderful book.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
