I'm Glad I'm a Mom 1st Review!

I wanted to share the following review with all of you. It can be found on and was written by Debra Gaynor. She gave it 5 stars!

"Many moms wonder if their life is normal. Only through discussion do we come to realize that we all face the same doubts, trials, and triumphs that come along with motherhood. I knew this book was going to be a favorite when I saw the name Liz Curtis Higgs as a contributor. I was a stay-at-home mom of three children under two, and can relate to many of the ancecdotes in this delightful book.

Approximately fifty moms band together to create this book filled with stories that will bring a smile to your face and an occasional tear. From eating cat food, to being stuck in a tambourine, these stories will entertain you. "Pillow Fight" by Deborah Raney is a humorous and yet so touching sotry about a pillow with a face drawn on it, used as a punching bag and used to keep college student's homesickness at bay. I could relate to "Who's in Charge?" by Kendra Smiley, I too raised a strong-willed child. WHile that trait made life stressful when she was a child it has also served to make her a strong, independent woman, one that I am very proud of.

I'm Glad I'm a Mom does more than entertain, it celebrates motherhood, encourages us not to despair, and it reminds us that our memories are precious; hold tight to them. Our children are gifts from God. I'm Glad I'm a Mom will make a terrific gift for any mom."

Also, I just learned from Harvest House that "I'm Glad I'm a Mom" will be on a front table at Family Christian Stores for Mother’s Day!
