Motherhood Matters by Connie Sokol

Motherhood is a divine calling---but it may not always feel that way. Now you can show the women in your life how much they matter to you, with this delightful and heartwarming volume of wit and wisdom about the divinity, reality, and rewards of motherhood. Fresher than flowers and sweeter than chocolate, it's a perfect gift for the women who give so much. 

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.

Mrs. Sokol marinates in time spent with her family and eating decadent treats.

My Review:

I have realized one thing while reading Connie Sokol's books. She is R.E.A.L. Connie is a real woman, a real wife, and a real mother. Her writing is inspirational and her message is clear. Being a mother and  a wife is a vocation. It is not an easy vocation, and it is one that is chosen in each of our hearts. 

Reading Connie's books make you feel good inside. She leaves you feeling that a fresh breeze is blowing. The book is a fast read as each of the chapters are short and each story contains a little phrase or a great huge paragraph that will resonate with you. Connie uses quotes and stories from her personal life to make the stories jump off the page. 

If you haven't already given yourself permission to forgive yourself for all of those little things you think you've done wrong in mothering, she will definitely give you the courage to stand up and admit that you did the best you could at that time and none of us are "perfect mothers".  

Motherhood Matters is a book that you will want to pick up again and again, and give as gifts to all of your friends.
