Blog Tour - You Are the Mother Your Children Need



About the book: Motherhood is the toughest job you'll ever take on: there is no interview, no job description, and no salary. When you get the position, it can be all too easy to feel under-qualified and overwhelmed. But with a sweet message of encouragement, Christie Gardiner reminds women there are as many ways to be a good mother as there are mothers in this world—and there's no one more capable of raising your children than you!

In this uplifting book, mothers are encouraged to let go of the quest for perfection and recognize the divinity within. Learn to own your strengths and weaknesses, and allow your true self to shine! With practical advice on learning to accept failure, hold on to your identity, and harness the divine help available to mothers, women will gain the confidence to embrace their uniquely perfect qualifications for the job of motherhood.

My review: I don't always make it through non-fiction books the fastest, so I was super surprised when I was able to finish this one in just a couple of hours. I loved everything about it!

I loved Christie Gardiner's voice in this one. It really felt as though I was sitting down with a dear friend and having a conversation about not only motherhood, but life in general. I loved her clever insights, her kindness towards not only those around her, but most importantly herself and her limitations.

I loved the way she talks about your children needing the "real" you. They don't need what you think mothers should be, they need you with all of your foibles, and your own talents. What a great chapter! I loved the way that I could see through reading this, that it's really okay to be who and what I am. As long as I'm trying to be a good person and mother, anything I lack will be made up somewhere else. 

I also really liked the way this book is an empowerment book, not a put down anyone book. I loved the way she includes a chapter on the dads. How great they really are and how we need to work together and fight against the whole "stupid dad" image that the media tries to portray.

This is a great book for moms everywhere to read! It's amazing!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
