This is a very uplifting, inspiring book directed at LDS mothers. Most women can benefit from the message, whether LDS or not.
The woman you want to be . . . the one who has within her every talent, gift, and ability to be what her children need? She’s already there. She is you. 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 underqualified 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 perfectionism and recognize the divinity within. Discover how to own your strengths and weaknesses, and allow your true self to shine! With practical advice on learning to accept failure, holding on to your identity, and harnessing the divine help available to mothers, women will gain the confidence to embrace their uniquely perfect qualifications for the job of motherhood.
Review by LAWonder10:
Christie was raised as an actor but gave it all up for motherhood….Was that a wise choice?
Christie answers this and many more questions and concerns most women have. Do you feel you weren’t meant to be a mother? Do you feel you “fall short” in the qualities you need as a good mother? Are you too imperfect?
Some of what the author states is nothing new, but she adds insight that is not often given. Instead of leaving the reader feeling incomplete, the reader is uplifted, hopeful and inspired!
Realizing in spite of your imperfections, “You Are The Mother Your Children Need”!
Thus was well-written, with humor and compassion, the insight of the author is remarkable!
The Title and Book Cover were very “fitting” to the book’s content.
This earns a strong Four Stars rating.
*Although this book was gifted to me, I was not asked to give a positive review. This is my honest review.
