We interrupt this blog for a Blog Tour! Welcome Connie Sokol

I'm happy to review Connie Sokol's book, MOTHERHOOD MATTERS

In these hectic days where life's demands can quickly become a heavy burden, Motherhood Matters helps you find more memorable moments and take the stress out of the to-do lists. Written with clarity, concision, and wit, this short, yet indispensable handbook is better than flowers, more guilt-free than chocolate, and gives back to the woman who sacrifices so much of herself every single day.

First line:
"Motherhood is near to divinity."

Don't you LOVE the cover? I'm a little prejudiced to purple.

I enjoyed this book! It's not just about being a mother but also about mothering. Just like from the beginning where Connie says this is a book when you've had it with mothering or when you want to be reminded of the beauty of motherhood or when you need a good laugh. This book is a book of joy, not about to-dos or what I should have done.

Fantastic book with short chapters full of humor, stories and encouragement.

One of my favorite lines: "What matters is that we learn to love "mothering"--for it is a learning process--whether it be of our own children, our neighbor's children or children we teach. In the process, we recognize with gratitude our womanly nature to nurture..." (p.16).

**Perfect for that special woman in your life whether it be a mother, sister, aunt, friend. And just in time for Mother's Day! You can buy it from Amazon here.
