Joy-Worthy: A Mother's Guide to More Joy, Less Stress and No Guilt by Julie McGrath
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I loved this book. It kind of reminded me of the Girlfriends guide to pregnancy in the fact it was funny and honest all at once.
No matter where you are on your beautiful, often exhausting journey through motherhood, Joy-Worthy gives you a plan to put yourself first without guilt and rediscover what gives you joy. If motherhood is sucking the joy right out of you -- or you fear it might -- joy coach and licensed social worker Julie McGrath offers down-to-earth guidance on how to get your own needs met so you can be a better mother and create the fulfilling life of your dreams. You don’t have to put your happiness on hold -- you can learn how to be happy right now, because you are joy-worthy!
I think I'll be keeping it on my bookshelf to refer back to certain sections when I need a little mom down time. I especially loved the chapter on Martyrs and the non-worthy women. It really hit home! If your a mom you should have this book, I think it will really lift your spirits and put a smile on your face. Even if your not yet a mom it might help you appreciate all of the women in your life a little more.
