Book Recommendation

A friend of mine recommended this book to me awhile back and I Loved it!!! By far the best christian parenting book I have ever read! Talk about a book that is right on with the word of God, it is filled with scripture, seriously sooo good. I never realized how much the Bible has to say about parenting, it totally opened my eyes and made me realize that the greatest gift God gives us is our children and the greatest gift we can give them, is a Godly foundation, that is the only inheritance that truly matters. 

Just bought my own copy, you should get one too and let me know what you think.

Mommy Poem

I don't know if every women is like this or if its just me, but ever since I gave birth or actually it started when I was pregnant, I literally cry over EVERYTHING now! Its seriously so annoying and sometime embarrassing. I used to make fun of my mom for crying over a movie, a nice letter, a sweet poem or even nothing at all, and now I have turned into my Mother aggggghhhhhhh!!!!!! 

But anyways, here is an Awesome poem that Yes, made me cry and I just wanted to share cause its just so true:

Before I was a Mom
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn’t worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.
Before I was a Mom
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.
Before I was a Mom
I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
Before I was a Mom
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn’t want to put her down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn’t stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.
Before I was a Mom
I didn’t know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn’t know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn’t know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn’t know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.
Before I was a Mom
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn’t know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom
