A Balanced Mom

When I started staying home with the kids almost two years ago, a good friend of mine got me the book 'A Balanced Mom'.  It is a great book. And it isn't just for stay-at-home moms.  It has great advice for any women, whether you work or stay home and some sections apply even if you don't have kids at all.

It is almost more of a workbook and something you can always go back to, re-read and reference whenever you need to. It is also a very quick read.  It talks about making time for yourself, living your values, treasuring your friendships, learning to ask for help, simplifiying your life, among other things.

One of my favorite sections of the book is about setting your priorities - in life, at home, at work, with you family, your kids, your husband, etc.  It talks about the importance of YOUR priorities, not those of others.  Concentrating on what you can do in your life and not worrying about what others have, want, do, etc.  If you live your life sticking to your priorities and values you will be more fullfilled and happy.

Overall, it is a great book and I recommend it.
