'When will I ever get time for myself? Do I ever get to be someone besides 'Mom'?' Sound familiar? You're not selfish, you're normal. And with every mother, you share nine basic needs -- significance, identity, growth, recreation, and five others identified by MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) International after more than 20 years of research and experience. Now MOPS authors Elisa Morgan and Carol Kuykendall show you 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 that reveals different ways you, the nurturer, also need to be nurtured. This encouraging, insightful book shares with you: - Your needs and why it's so vital for you to meet them - Personal stories from other moms that will let you know your needs are normal - Building Blocks -- exercises, questions, and practical tips - Mothering Maxims that condense each chapter into a nugget of practical wisdom -- Based on sound biblical principles and responses to over 1,000 questionnaires, What Every Mom Needs will help you expand your personal horizons and become a better mom in the bargain.
