Being the mother of a young child is a tough job, but now you can find help and understanding. Elisa Morgan and Carol Kuykendall of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) International point the way to relief and fulfillment in the midst of motherhood's hectic pace. After more than 20 years of research and experience with moms, MOPS has identified your nine basic needs as a mother: significance, identity, growth, intimacy, instruction, help, recreation, perspective, and hope. The authors show how meeting those needs will not only make you more content--it'll make you a better mom. What Every Mom Needs is not another book on parenting. It's a whole-person approach to balanced living for moms that shows different ways you, the nurturer, also need to be nurtured. You'll find keys to hope and growth for some of the most frustrating predicaments of being a mother. In What Every Mom Needs, you'll discover: - Your needs and why it's so vital for you, as the mother of a preschooler, to learn to meet them - Personal description and quotes from moms that will let you know your needs are normal - Building Blocks--exercises, questions, and practical tips for meeting your different needs - Mothering maxims that condense each chapter into a nugget of wisdom you can keep and apply. Based on solid biblical principles and responses to more than 1,000 questionnaires, What every Mom Needs is an invaluable resource for women who long to expand their personal horizons and become better mothers in the bargain. It's bound to become a standard that moms everywhere will turn to for help, encouragement, and growth.
