12 Key Powers of Motherhood + Book giveaway


In 2010, I saw that the Power of Moms website was having a writing contest for a book they were going to publish. On a whim, I decided to enter. After all, they were asking for submissions about motherhood. Right up my alley! Much to my delight, I was very surprised to find out that they liked what I had to say and I was going to be one of the authors in their book - Deliberate Motherhood: 12 Key Powers of Peace, Purpose, Order and Joy

No Way! I am published in a book!
*insert dancing and jumping up and down and screaming around the house*
So as you can imagine, I am a little excited to share this book with you :)

{The proof! I am even in there more than once! I had to make this picture large you know!}

The 12 powers explained in the book are: Acceptance, Love, Patience, Individuality, Intention, Progress, Balance, Priorities, Organisation, Fun, Optimism and Moments. 

Each of the 12 'powers' shared in this book is to help you on your motherhood journey. The great part about this book is that you can chose to focus on reading one chapter/one power a month and over the course of a year you can apply all twelve powers to your home and family. Or you can open the book at any page and read about the many personal experiences shared from 60 different authors on motherhood. I am delighted to be among the collection of inspiring women who lend their words and heart to make up this wonderful book.

This is a book that is written by women for other women. It is not a book written by a professional who has many qualifications and no children about motherhood, it is a collection of varying mothers who are stay at home mums, single mums to professional women working all talking and sharing what motherhood means to them. The experiences are real, they are honest, they are inspiring and they are heart felt. 

All the authors have one common goal and that is to be a deliberate mother. A mother who really thinks about what you do as a mum and also a mother who wants to learn and grow and develop yourself as a person through the experience of motherhood. In other words you live life purposefully. You embrace what you uniquely bring to your family and try to become the best you can.

As a mother who is passionate about motherhood and an author in this book, I naturally want everyone to read it and benefit from the wisdom it contains. So, to help as many people as we can, The Power of Moms and Seven Cherubs are giving away 50 copies of Deliberate Motherhood: 12 Key Powers of Peace, Purpose, Order and Joy. Yes! 50 copies! Woo Hoo! 

As we want to make this as easy as possible for everyone, we have decided to giveaway 50 digital copies of the book. That way we can simply email you and you can download it to read in your own time and leisure. I am really, really excited to share this wonderful book with you and hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do!
