Once a month I wanted to suggest a book to you that I myself had read and enjoyed. The book for March is entitled “You are the Mother your Children Need,” by Christie Gardiner.

 Christie Gardiner is an LDS writer and she includes many wonderful spiritual thoughts. But even if you aren’t LDS, if you are Christian or part of any faith, you will love Gardiner’s insights and thoughts on motherhood.

I personally was drawn to this book simply by the title. Have you ever felt like you were failing as a mother? That maybe your kids would do better with a different mom, because you feel like you aren’t cutting it? If you have ever had those moments, this author enlightens you on how to realize you are exactly the mother your children need, despite your insecurities. 

An summary of  Christie Gardiner’s book  “YOU ARE THE MOTHER YOUR CHILDREN NEED”

“Motherhood is the toughest job you’ll ever take on: there is no interview, no job description, and no salary. When you get the position, it can be all too easy to feel underqualified and overwhelmed. But with a sweet message of encouragement, Christie Gardiner reminds women there are as many ways to be a good mother as there are mothers in this world—and there’s no on more capable of raising your children than you!”

Bottom line, if you are a mother, or want to learn more about motherhood, this book is for you. I felt uplifted and inspired after reading this book because she addresses many insecurities that mothers have, and she informs the reader that it’s possible to tackle these troubling issues. Gardiner has a great sense of humor about things as well and shares many heart-warming stories.

If you are ready to feel closer to reaching your potential as a mother, you will enjoy flipping the pages of this book. 

Take time for yourself and read, you won’t ever regret learning something from a book!






P.S.–This book could be a great Mother’s Day gift idea:)
