Book Blog Tour Stop - Deliberate Motherhood: A Powers of Mom Book

About The Book:

The outstanding authors of "Deliberate Motherhood" have let the trials and hardships of motherhood mold them into better people. Whether the change includes learning patience when the two-year-old “paints” your walls with the black permanent marker or forgiving a teenager who screams “I hate you,” or loving more when that naughty child doesn’t really deserve it, it’s a change that refines us—or as the dictionary describes it, “removes impurities, makes something more effective or become more elegant.” That is powerful!

You may think that everything has been said about motherhood, but the delightful thing about Deliberate Motherhood is that every mother/author is one-of-a-kind. They each come from different backgrounds, have different parents, are married (or not) to different people, and certainly have “different” children.
Each of the 12 “Powers” provided in this book is a crucial component to help you in your motherhood. And the best part is that you don’t need to do it all at once. You can focus on one “power” a month, and over the course of a year, you’ll see great changes in yourself and in your family. The mark of a great book is that it makes you think . . . and it helps you change . . . which in the case of this book, is an absolute guarantee!

My Thoughts:

Where was this book when I had little boys running around?  I sure could have used the wonderful information and advice offered by this well-written, well-organized book!

I loved how this book was broken down into different segments with stories from different mothers about how they handled their unique situations. And I loved how the book encourages mothers to take the time to care for themselves as well as their families.

"Deliberate Motherhood" would be a great book to give to first-time mothers. It would also be a great book to recommend to moms who seem to be struggling with motherhood - this book would be like a lifeline with it's great advice and tales from the homefront. Written in an easy, understandable style, this is a book that will be referred back to time and time again.
