Bonus Book Review: Mommy Power (A MUST read!)

I won this book at the Ultimate Blog Party in April and I liked it so much I'm going to write a bonus review!

Mommy Power is a book that immediately engages you since the writer is a mom herself.  Dr. Sheila Schuller Coleman is the daughter of Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral in California and the mother of four sons.  Despite all of her educational background she relates to ordinary moms in everyday situations.  Her stories are short and sometimes funny ending with a catchy saying, Bible verse and heartfelt prayer.  All of the mom struggles that we face can be given to the loving God who cares not only for our precious children, but also for us as moms.

I laughed and I cried, but most of all I was inspired not to attain perfection as a mom, but to rely on the One who is the source of my strength.  I would definitely share this book with all of my mom friends.  Sheila's writing style is engaging and real.  I was able to read through this book in one weekend.  It would make a great gift for any mom.  I hope you get a chance to read it soon!

Hey, it's Blog Hop Friday!

Hey! I'm visiting from blog frog. I have a suggestion...hope you don't mind (my blog isn't anywhere near to having "arrived" so take my advice for what its worth!). Do you have a facebook fan page? if not, you should set one up. We got a lot of our followers that way. Then we added Networked blogs to pull our feed for the fan page (all of this is on facebook) and so our feed automatically gets pulled to FB and anyone who signs up can read our posts right on FB. Maybe you already did all this...if so, I apologize. Good luck with the reviews!
