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.

Book Readers Review

The essence and importance of motherhood is captured in this little book of inspirational, practical, and humorous anecdotes.  The author shares her own experiences in motherhood and beliefs. Connie Sokol tells of the Divine, the Reality, and the rewards of motherhood. 

At the best of times motherhood is one of the greatest responsibilities in life and can on occasions be trying and challenging.  Connie portrays the truths, advice, encouragement, and the courage that all mothers need.

Connie writes that "...it is a book of joynot a focus on to-dos or should-have-dones. Its simply a thank you, a congratulations, and an awe-inspired gratitude for all that women do as mothers."  Her writing is inspiring for all who are contemplating, about to be, and are mothers. To quote Connie again, Despite what we see on a television screen or read in a magazine, motherhood is a holy calling and a divine privilege."

As a mother and grandmother, I highly recommend that anyone who wants to be or is a mother read this little book.  Congratulate yourself, forgive yourself, take courage and most of all, share this gem with others.

Happy Mothers day to you all!
