One after my morning devotional, one while I give the baby a nap, one when everybody’s playing in the afternoon, one in the tub or while Ryan tucks the big kids in. I love motherhood. And marriage, ... The Magic of Motherhood

The sentence " Rather than offering advice, we're offering ourselves" drew me in. And offer of themselves, they did. Each essay was real, raw, and so heartfelt ... The Magic of Motherhood

I was blaming the fast paced month on vacation but if I'm being honest, it seems to be going by faster and faster each and every week. Our weekend is packed full and I am actually looking forward to Monday, which provides us with a chance to breath. I have so much ... Friday Favs: Graduation, Sunscreen and Baseball Blues

On 5/4 Alex @ Inspiration Clothesline wrote: This book, The Magic of Motherhood, by Ashlee Gadd is so perfectly titled. Magic is so elusive and uncertain, just like Motherhood. It is enthralling, can be exhausting (especially when trying to figure it out), and wholly engaging – mind, body, and spirit. The essays in this book address each of these ...

On 5/4 Annie Rim wrote: Most of these essays focus on the little years. A few touch on the shift to mothering tweens, but most of the contributors are in the infant to early elementary school years. They are messy and emerging from sleep deprivation and close enough to the newborn years to not romanticize their sweetness. Some ... The Magic of Motherhood

This is a unique book, there aren’t many like it for women. The essays center around topics like identity, adoption, infertility, miscarriage, birth and more. No matter what ...

On 5/1 Melissa McMurchy wrote: I absolutely LOVED this book. Motherhood is hard, I mean really hard. There are days where it is my favorite thing in the world, my kids get along, and I want 5 more kids. Then there are days where I question my sanity and what I was thinking having 3 kids. This book is filled with short little stories ... The Magic of Motherhood Review
