A Scrapbook of Motherhood Firsts: A Book Review

About The Book:

A SCRAPBOOK OF MOTHERHOOD FIRSTS celebrates motherhood milestones in a collection of topics from conception to school days, and recipes to family fun days.

With nearly 150 years of collective mothering, Leslie, Trish, Terra, Cathy, and Karen combine common sense, heartfelt advice, and humor to encourage young women in their journey through motherhood. Through tips, stories, recipes, and memories, these women bring faith-filled words of wisdom and insight.

As they did with the previous book in their giftbook series, A SCRAPBOOK OF CHRISTMAS FIRSTS, these wonderful authors accent their writing with wit, humor, joy and a faith in Christ that every mother will benefit from.

About The Authors:

Leslie Wilson, Trish Berg, Terra Hangen, Cathy Messecar, and Karen Robbins are a group of highly experienced mothers and authors. Each are columnists for newspapers or magazines, both in print and online, and have contributed to books includingChicken Soup for the Mother of Preschooler’s Soul (Health, 2006), A Still and Quiet Soul(Leafwood, 2011), I’m Glad I’m a Mom (Harvest House, 2008), The Groovy Chicks’ Road Trip series TM (Cook, 2006 and 2005), Tending the Soul (Moody, 2011), and others. They are nationally recognized mentors, acting as guest speakers for MOPS, Focus on the Family, and ABC World News Tonight, as well as writers of popular blog sites.

My Review:

An absolutely stunning and inspirational book for all the mother's in your life. The book is a perfect combination of tips, stories, recipes, and poems (like "You might be a mommy...") that will meet the needs of all moms. A small book, it can be read in one sitting, and you will laugh and cry as you read the book and think back about your own mom, and your own journey as a mom (no matter where on that journey you currently are on ). A great gift idea for Mother's Day, Christmas, Birthdays, and even baby showers. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
