Chicken Soup for the Soul: Stay at Home Moms...R&G!


I had the pleasure of reading a new Chicken Soup for the Soul book over the past week...Chicken Soup for the Soul:  Stay-at-Home Moms.  Here is the scoop...

101 Inspirational Stories for Mothers about Hard Work and Happy Families
With stories by famous moms, including Jane Green, Melora Hardin, Liz Lange, Jodi Picoult, and Jill Kargman, and stories from other moms who elected to stay at home or work from home. Every stay-at-home and work-from-home mom will view this book as having been written just for her! A reissue of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Power Moms, this book contains 101 great stories from mothers who have made the choice to stay home or work from home while raising their families. These multi-tasking, high-performing women have become today’s power mom. This is perfect for book groups as it contains a reader guide.

This book really hit home for me because I am a stay-at-home mom. It is actually the job I have always wanted and I feel lucky (most of the time!!) to have it.  I do also admit that it is far more challenging than I had ever imagined.  The upside is that it is also much more rewarding than I thought possible.  I enjoyed all the different sections of the book which dealt with subjects such as deciding to stay home, adjusting to the decision and looking back at the gift of being home.  I have been reading the stories in bits and spurts when I need a boost or a special reminder that while the job is hard it is a true treasure.  I am still choked up over the beautifully poignant tale "Memories and Tears" which tells the story of the "end of an era" when one takes down the crib for the very last time.  That time is coming for me in a couple of months so I could really relate.  So much joy felt looking through those crib bars over the years...sigh!  As always, the Chicken Soup books are relatable and are the soothing balm you need to help you get through.  Pick up a copy of this one for yourself or the mom in your life today....


I am so pleased to tell you that THREE lucky RBM readers will win a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Stay-at-Home Moms.  Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter... a Rafflecopter giveaway

I have two sisters who are stay at home moms. Both have issues because one sister is a cancer survivor and had a 9 yr old daughter who likes to keep busy and the other sister has 4 children and her youngest had a health issue with special needs.

I'd love to win this for myself because I'm a SAHM, the only one I know IRL, and it can be very difficult sometimes watching friends & family members lead a more exciting life. I always remind myself that staying home is worth it in the long run. Some encouragement every once in awhile would be nice!
