Happy New Year! I hope that your Christmas and New Year’s holiday were filled with fun times with your family. Mine were!
This new year brings a new giveaway with it! (I love giveaways! They are great.)
How many times, Dear Reader, have you vowed to be a better mother? To be more loving toward your children? To be more patient? (I gave up counting when my oldest child was only 3 months old . . .)
New Year’s is a time when mothers resolve to be better and do better. And with this giveaway one lucky winner will get something extra special to help make her desires come true.
One lucky person will win a copy of the book Deliberate Motherhood: 12 Key Powers of Peace, Purpose, Order & Joy. All you have to do to enter is post a comment about one of your fond memories of your own mother.
In this book, more than 60 excellent writers have come together to share their wisdom, insight, and inspiration about being a mother in today’s world. The book explains 12 “powers:” acceptance, love, patience, individuality, intention, progress, balance, priorities, organization, fun, optimism, and the power of moments.
There is one main ‘article’ per chapter and then a plethora of snippets of wisdom and insights that other mothers have about that topic. The book is easy to read and very enjoyable and will help a mother to be firmly grounded and choose deliberately what type of mother she will be to her children. (Was that a run-on sentence or what?)
This book is sponsored by the website The Power of Moms which was founded by April Perry and Saren Loosli. Several years ago as they gathered ideas to help them in their efforts to be good mothers, they realized the importance and the need that mothers have to network with each other and to help each other. So they created their website which now serves over one million mothers around the world. Isn’t that remarkable?
Question: What if I am a grandmother and not a mother? Why should I enter this giveaway?
Answer: Why to give the book to your daughter or daughter-in-law that’s why!
(You might even want to encourage your daughters and daughters-in-law to enter, too, so that their chance of winning will be increased!)
The giveaway will end at midnight on January 9. The winner will be announced on January 10th.
So, hurry now and post your comment!
