Don't Sweat the Small Stuff for Moms - Review & Giveaway (Closed)

Every once in while a new book comes out that you know is going to strike a chord with just about every mom you know...this is it....“Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff for Moms” 

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff for Moms by Kristine Carlson is by far one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. I am always looking for ways to renew and replenish myself, so that I can continue to be the example of what I want to see in my daughter and in others.

The ins and outs of daily living can be trying at times, this is especially true for mothers. We are the backbone to our households and to society at large.  We are looked to for advice and guidance.  We are responsible for molding, shaping, and developing the lives of other human beings. We are heavily relied upon, giving more of ourselves each and every day, and sometimes taking very little.

Don't Sweat gives advice to mothers in small digestible bites, 100 short chapters of life altering "aha's." Kristine Carlson covered all the bases, from blended family to sex talks, it's like a mom bible! My favorite chapters include "The Power of Prayer Is In The Asking" and "Choose Happiness And Peace Over Stress."

Kristine touched on so many things that I have personally dealt with in my own life. Now that my daughter is a nearly 17, I realize that my role as a mother is changing, but will never end. Her growing up has forced me to grow in ways that I never would have imagined. So operating from a place of peace and understanding is more important than ever, but is also very challenging at times. I am always reminding myself to breathe and Don't Sweat reminded me of why my breath is so valuable.

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff for Moms is for all mothers. Whether you are a new mom or the mother of adults, you will benefit from owning this book.

  1. I remember that life is short and should be lived. I don't know what tomorrow will bring and today might be my last so I better make the most of it.

    Unfortunately, I know about the brevity of life all too well. However, this insight is yet another gift that my son has given me.

    I hope that this is open to Canadians.
