As I sat down to read What Every MOM Needs, my two preschoolers jumped on the couch, not next to me but on me. We snapped a quick shot to show exactly how it is to be a mom of young kids. They require so much attention and want nothing more than YOU.

This is great – mostly. It’s amazing to know that only you can kiss the boo-boo and make it better. That only you can tuck them in at night and chase away the monsters. That you are the one they run to and hug the tightest. However, we are still human beings with needs. We pour our lives and love into our children, however we cannot neglect that we too have needs that need to be met. Have you ever heard the saving, If Mom isn’t Happy, nobody is! Isn’t that the truth? It is up to us to make sure we take care of ourselves.

What Every MOM Needs!

This week’s giveaway from FamilyLife is perfect for Moms with preschoolers. What Every MOM Needs! is about our unique needs and how when we meet those needs, we are a better woman, better mom, and better wife.

You don’t even know what your real name sounds like anymore because all you are referred to mostly is ‘Mom.’ Do you feel confined to meeting the needs of everyone else around you-kids, family, work, and friends-that your personal needs are ignored? What Every Mom Needs offers ways to balance your life so that you the nurturer is nurtured as well. Hear personal testimonies from other moms just like you and be on your way toward better motherhood.
