Through stories and suggestions, Katrina Kenison shares her insights into how to celebrate life's quiet moments, softly reminding busy mothers to pause and remember the deep sense of well-being comes from a listening ear, an open heart, and a quiet little space carved out of time.
Mothers are pulled in a million different directions while trying to give their kids fulfilling, productive, joyful childhoods.
They mistake activity for happiness, and fill their kids' heads with information when they ought to be feeding their souls instead.
This is a book for mothers who yearn to find a balance in their own and their children's lives.
