Motherhood Matters

Motherhood Matters: Joyful Reminders of the Divinity, Reality, & Rewards of Motherhood by Connie E. Sokol

So this is my second review of a book by Connie and I have another in my possession that I look forward to reviewing.

First, let me start by saying how much I love the cover. Beautiful, clean, uplifting and lovely and what girl doesn't love a purple flower?
Second, Connie has written this in bite size chunks so you can read it and reread it one tiny bite at a time or devour it like cake and eat it in one huge bite. Chew and swallow.
Third, I love books that remind me that it's okay not to be perfect, that as a mother we all make mistakes, and that we all deserve second chances and to cut ourselves a little slack.
Fourth, I met Connie at the LDStorymakers Conference 2012 and she was carrying a bundle of joy that has since arrived. Congratulations to Connie and her family. Best wishes on the journey of being a mom.

What Motherhood book do you recommend?


  1. I really enjoyed Connie's Motherhood Matters book. I've re-read parts of it since I first reviewed it.

    My favorite motherhood book is Guilt Free Motherhood by Joni Hilton. My sister gave it to me when I had my first child (who is now almost 13!). And I've re-read it so many times the cover is about ready to fall off. I've marked gobs of passages, too. It's definitely one I'll pass on to my daughters to read some day.

  2. Nice review. It was a fun book!

  3. I like the bite-sized chunks idea. Nice review. It would have been nice to see the cover.
