Motherhood Matters/Life is Too Short Collection by Connie E. Sokol {Blog Tour Review and Giveaway}

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 little volume full 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.



My Review: 5 Stars

I often beat myself up because I'm not the "perfect" mother. I love the little tidbits, quotes, and thoughts found in this book to help me realize that there's no such thing as what I'm trying to be! The key points that I took away from reading this are that I just need to love my kids, find joy in the journey, do my best, and make time for me, so that I can give that extra effort to my family when it's really needed. This is such a refreshing and uplifting book and told in a way that makes me feel that I am doing enough. 

There's also a little section on how to handle life, not if, but when, your children rebel/stray/become difficult. I loved that because I'm not alone--even scriptural parents dealt with similar parenting problems. I'm feeling good about my efforts and think this book is a great read for any mother.

My Review: 5 Stars

Connie Sokol has an amazing gift! She is able to give hope, entertain, give helpful tips, and say it like it is, in a very tender way. Sometimes these types of books all seem to say basically the same thing, making me feel guilty for not measuring up, or overwhelmed by all I have to change, but I was amazed to actually learn a few new things and to feel good about it! Maybe they were just told in a way that rang a bell with me, but whatever it is, I have a new perspective on life and have realized a few changes that I need to make that are actually doable.

Life is too short and we only get one shot at it, so it's in our best interests to make every day and every moment count. I didn't realize, as I was reading this, that it is actually three books combined into one. I read it all in one sitting, but I would love to go back and read different sections, taking the time to really ponder and savor what is being said. I couldn't help but laugh and I love that Ms. Sokol puts it out there--she's just as human as the rest of us are and isn't afraid to admit that. Wouldn't it be amazing if we were all able to laugh at our stress and shortcomings and move on? This is the perfect read for any woman out there!
