Book: 4278 of Mom Central's Tips--For Moms from Moms
Terrific Gift for Moms
As one of the hundreds of contributing moms in this book, I'm proud to present this review. The Mom Book is a compilation of tips from mothers, neatly arranged and expanded upon by author Stacy DeBroff. Topics covered range from Feeding your Children, to Getting (and staying) Organized, to Memories and Celebrations... and more in between. Whether the solutions offered are common sensical (Getting Organized: If you don't have a hall closet, set aside a place for shoes, coats, hats, and umbrellas near the front door. Without somewhere convenient to go, they'll wind up on chairs or on the floor.) or clever-as-can-be (Medical: numb the area of a splinter with teething medication prior to attempting to work it out), and whether the issue is day-to-day living (Homework) or life-changing (Divorce), the book offers insight useful to all moms here. The scope of subject matter and variety of contributor experience result in a well- rounded book that sometimes contradicts itself... which seems OK, even expected, in this context. I'd call this book a deeply researched, personal, directory of tips and insights well worth keeping *and* passing along to *every* mom of growing children, on *any* occasion!
Power of a Positive Mom (Paperback)
A GREAT BOOK!!!!!!!!!!
I read this book while I was still pregnant with my first child. It was such an amazing inspiration. It included sweet ideas of how to express cute actions of love & positivity for your children. The prayers and scriptures were very motivational and reminded me, once again, that God's glory is great for the mind, body, & soul and is all you need when it seems that your daily routine has steered you away from the positive mental attitude you woke up with (with which you intended to face the new day). This book reminds you to take those necessary moments to pray and remain spiritually focused to enable yourself to have the power of a positive mom and wife, as well as impacting the lives of your family with words of encouragement of God's eternal love. After reading the first couple of chapters, I decided to start highlighting and book-marking certain paragraphs and pages that I wanted to refer back to once my son was born. Before I knew it, almost the entire book had been highlighted bright yellow and mini post-its were stuck in between so many pages it bulged. I have bought this book for 3 of my friends who have loved it just the same! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! God Bless!
wonderful, witty, gleeful book---enjoy!
My children are now 28, 25, 23, and nearly 20 years old, but today I decided to plant an avocado pit and looked up how to do it in "The Mother's Almanac." My faded, dog-eared copy is filled with notes jotted on the margins; looking at it brought back many warm memories. This book is a wonder, filled with common-sense wisdom. Over the years I have given it to many new mothers, and referred to it, and quoted from it, hundreds of times. From instructions on how to survive the exhausting early weeks, to detailed explanations of creative projects a pre-schooler can "The hours are terrible, right from the start, but remember, at least you are the boss!" Yes, young mothers, you are in charge of these fast-passing days. This book will help both you and your kids to bask in the love, joy, and creativity of the early childhood years!
Secrets a Cool Mom Knows
This is such a great book! Fun (and important) (how to tell a poisonous snake) things to learn in this book. And done with love with wonderful thoughts at the end of each chapter - "COOL MOM THOUGHTS"! And written - obviously with such love and enthusiasm about being a mom. What, to me, is really great is this: So many times moms have so much "momming" to do that they can't spend the time they would like with their children - and THAT IS WHERE GRANDMA'S come in! There are great and fun things I look forward to teaching MY grandson -things I never would have known how to do (we will view a hummingbird up close!) --- THIS BOOK IS A GIFT TO ALL WHO LOVE CHILDREN!
I Said So: 33 Mothers Write About Children, Sex, Men, Aging, Faith,
Race, and Themselves (Hardcover)
is a Phenomal Book!
This is one of my top Five books of 2005. In fact,
this is the best book I have read this year. If I could give it a
ten, I would. I identified with each of the authors in this
collection of essays ~~ even though some of their experiences I may
not share, they are writing from the deep reaches of their hearts
and souls. This book is not only a collection of essays of women
from all ages and all walks of life ~~ it is about Everywoman. It's
about you and me.
Truth Behind the Mommy Wars: Who Decides What Makes a Good Mother?
Wars & Choices Examined Carefully
A really good, thoughtful, well-written book. I
don't know why it hasn't been reviewed anywhere in the mainstream
media, when Judith Warner's book (which I haven't read yet, so no
comparisons) is all over the place.
5 Golden Rules
This book is a MUST HAVE! I wish that I would have picked up Mommy CEO before I began my company. Running a successful business from home is a challenge in itself but throw in the factor of running a business and raising a baby/toddler along with all the other responsibilities that come with running a family and that can equal to some serious chaos. I realize now that not only am I CEO of my business but also CEO of my family. When I took this wonderful new paradigm shift and put it into action it did wonders not only for my family but also for my business. I went from what seemed like total chaos and stress to a peaceful harmony. Jodie Lynn stresses not to forget the little things in life -- as they are the REAL essence to life and happiness! She couldn't be more right and it's often all too easy to forget that if you're living in a state of chaos. I have recommended this book to all 70 mom entrepreneurs that comprise my site.
