Goodreads Summary: "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."

My Review

This book was an absolute joy to read. While I was reading I started taking notes, and wrote down pages numbers of my favorite quotes from our amazing church leaders, and from the author herself.  Many inspirational messages quotes are in this book to help you through your busy mothering days. I was reminded to take life a day at a time, and most importantly to cherish your children. My kids are 14, 11, and 7. I miss the days when they were younger, but I am excited about the life we have now, and look forward to live and enjoy each day. No matter how busy we get. It also reminded me that my Heavenly Father loves me, and looks after me. Even as something as simple as watching over my house because I left a curling iron on.

5 out of 5 stars. This book is a great gift for Mother's Day for any mother, no matter what stage in her mothering she is in.
