Perfect Choice for a Busy Mom May 17 2009
By C. O'Keeffe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
How embarassing is it to be a contributor of this book without having read it? I knew my story almost verbatim but hadn't taken the time to read the other stories. Please don't think ill of me: I have a 7 month old who only recently started sleeping through the night and my tired eyes were not up for reading the stack of books on my nightstand. I finally had a long train ride and the book with me in my bag. What a great moment. Once I started I could not stop. Each one of these stories is a mini-treasure, a small window into the life of a mom who is different yet facing so many of the same choices, obstacles, issues, joys and sorrows that come with motherhood. The stories are not long and easy enough to read quickly before my eye lids begin to droop at bedtime. I recommend this to any mother, especially ones with small children who are trying to figure out their lives one day at a time. Congratulations to all the contributors on being great moms and thanks to them for sharing their beautiful stories.

Great for Every Mom!!! April 30 2009
By Rock Mommy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is fantastic! I have my copy in my car, and I pick it up and read a few stories while I'm waiting to pick my child up at school. Every contribution is beautiful, and the honesty is fantastic! There's even a chapter written by MEN about their appreciation for their moms and wives! Whether you're the working mom, or the stay-home mom, or the empty nester, you will empathize with the authors, laugh, cry, and appreciate some new perspectives on the hardest non-paying job there is ;-)

My Mom loves it! March 20 2009
By Heather Pemberton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I gave a copy of the book to my mom, the original power mom, because I wrote one of the stories in it. Well, she's getting a real kick out of reading all the stories. She says she keeps it by her exercycle and reads a few stories each time she works out. She thinks they're funny and wonderful and says they bring back lots of memories. After bearing five children and then building a business with my father, she knows what it's like to juggle the many priorities we moms do today. She now has 11 grandchildren and is still working hard at 71! This book would make a great Mother's Day gift for any mom.
Empowering! Aug. 8 2011
By La Vaughn Kemnow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A well-rounded collection of accounts written by mothers who chose to stay at home--either working from home or being full-time moms. It's time we shed the stigma and negative thoughts about parents who choose to (or have to) stay at home and take care of their children. It is the most natural thing to do. While some mothers have to work outside the home to make ends meet, and others choose a career over staying home and taking care of their children, it is a personal decision that should be made with the best interests of everybody in mind. Some families are fortunate in having loving relatives close by to help out; but if the parents are gone most of the time they miss out on the little milestones of their children's lives, and the true bonding that can take place if the family is together. Too many parents who work outside the home have to rely on a series of strangers to take care of their children. I once heard a working mother say, "I can always find a babysitter!" Yes, but what kind of babysitter? One who will really watch and interact with the children, or one who just wants to collect her pay? Once in my professional duties of Family Advocate (my children were nearly grown) I visited one home where the mother, who was doing childcare for a half-dozen children of working mothers, insisted that they sit in front of the TV all day; she interacted with them very little. I feel very fortunate to have grown up on a farm with both parents present, and all members of the family expected to share in the work; and the small trips, picnics and evening "game time" shared by the family.
Don't take working-at-home moms lightly June 12 2011
By Douglas Setter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anyone who considers being a stay-at-home or work-from-home mom (or dad) should read this book. I already admire this dedicated group, like novelist Jane Green, actress Melora Hardin and Maternity Clothes business woman, Liz Lange. Yet, the stories give more insight than just being around the home. There is the on-going discipline of separating work from children, of keeping physically fit, of persistence and enduring the looks from people when you might explain that your "job" is an at-home mom, stay-at-home-dad or unpublished author.

A nice collection of heart, hope and humor.
