Overview

This unique book is an interactive guide to feeling good for working moms the world over. We're all familiar with this woman. She carries a briefcase that doubles as a diaper bag. She collects business cards and report cards. She carries a Franklin planner that reminds her to send out birthday cards to all her friends and family. SheÕs the woman who strives to bless the mess—the unruly threads of life lived fast forward with kids to love, pets to feed, kitchens to clean and a car with two old orders of McDonald's french fries stuffed under the seats. She's also the person most likely to buy a self-help book—particularly one written just for her. Bless This Mess is a rich patchwork quilt of stories of women from all walks of life, paired with journaling prompts to help readers find their own ways through life's complex journeys.

For moms who are overwhelmed by the daily grind---hang in there, help's coming! Much more than a simple motivational book, BLESS THIS MESS is a hybrid between household hints and having a personal spiritual coach to guide you through life's ups and downs (while keeping your sense of humor). Each chapter includes a Blessing section, reminding you to be thankful for your blessings and focusing on improving the life of yourself and family. Practical and effective tips make BLESS THIS MESS a great resource for busy moms everywhere. From Mom Advice such as limiting your time spent in the kitchen (what a relief!) to relishing feedback from effective parenting, this book is a breath of fresh air.
