Book Giveaway~The Mom I Want To Be, By T. Suzanne Eller



OK~ I was so blessed to win this autographed book through a contest on Momlogic.  The Mom I Want to Be, by T. Suzanne Eller.  I enjoyed every page of this book and know that every Mom would benefit from reading what Suzanne has to share.  Suzanne is not shy about recapping her years as a child.  Her family was not the perfect family on the block, as most of ours are not.  What she really focuses on, is how to overcome the pattern that quite often develops within families.

At the end of each chapter is a small section to answer a few questions.  In return, you, the reader, really get to dig deep and find out if you really are being the Mom that you want to be.  There are some tough questions- and remember, there are no right or wrong answers.  It all depends on how honest you want to be, in regards to who you are.  On page 146 she asks:  Are you ready to let go of your bad family memories? What will you gain by focusing on the present rather than the past?  If this book doesn't make you think, you might want to close the book and open it up again..........

God has given each of us special talents and gifts.  When we take the time to let go of some of the "hurts" in the past and focus on the future, we can be the Moms that we so desire to be.  Suzanne has willingly offered to give one of you lucky readers an autographed book of, The Mom I Want to Be.
Suzanne Eller is an author, columnist, and speaker that will enlighten your day, as well as encourage you to be The Mom That you so desire to be! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

  5. I've definitely learned a lot from my mom and mother in law, especially about the technical sides of parenting. Through the Internet, I'm learning a ton about a parenting a daughter to be Christ-like through OhAmanda/Impress Your Kids.

  15. I've loved watching my sister-in-law as a Mom. She has three brilliant kiddos who all love God, she homeschools them, and she has a great relationship with her husband. Now that I'm a Mom (to my sweet 5-month-old daughter), I think about her almost daily as I raise our daughter.
