When women are pregnant, people seem to always comment about the “glow” that moms-to-be have (even if we don’t feel glowing). Once that precious bundle arrives, everyone seems to have stories about how hard motherhood is. Yes, there are hard days, but that doesn’t need to be the focus of what it means to have kids. If having kids have seem to sucked the joy you once had, it is time to rediscovered that joy. There are so many great moments we experience with our kids. Genny Heikka will help you in finding mommy bliss in her new book.
ABOUT THE BOOK
In Genny’s book, Finding Mommy Bliss: , she shares with us 20 tips that will help us to discover unexpected joy in everyday moments. Each chapter is a tip. As I was reading the book, it was like listening to a mentor mom talk to me. I love reading the stories of how Genny found her way to mommy bliss, even during those challenging years of mothering young kids, and even while chasing crickets all over the house at six in the morning. I hear her heart for moms and I hear her hope that moms won’t miss those moments and opportunities when we need to take to teach and love on our kids when they make a mistake or they are needing a little more attention from us.
Some of the tips are gentle reminders, and others are a smack in the forehead (at least for me!):
- Don’t Rush the Journey
- Create the Laugh
- Love Your Dreams
One of my favorite parts of her book is the end of each chapter where she has a “Mom-to-Mom”, “Heart-to-Heart”, and “A Mom’s Prayer”. This is a great book to read on your own, but also a wonderful book to read through with a friend or a group of other moms. We all need cheerleaders on this journey called motherhood, and Genny is a great cheerleaders, but we also need others to come along aside us to encourage us.
Another thing I love? The Snippet App version of Finding Mommy Bliss!! It is so fun hearing and seeing Genny. You know she is passionate about moms finding bliss in their mothering adventures.
