I came across this free ebooklet, The Perfect Mom, by Michelle Wilson, about everyday moms with cute little stories and some things that every mom out there who hasn't felt good enough should hear. With Mother's Day just around the corner, I thought I'd pass along the deal!

"A book for every mother who's felt they weren't enough. You are more than enough. You are perfect." Michelle
Do you ever try to be the perfect mother, only to end up feeling like the worst mother ever?
When I was young, I thought my mother was perfect. Imagine my devastation when I realized she was an imperfect person like the rest of us. When I became a mother myself, I was determined to be the perfect mom for my kids. However, many times the opposite happened and I felt like the worst mother ever. Here I share six such occasions where my worst-mother-ever moments really shine (like that time my friend's child asked for a salad for lunch and mine was eating cereal off the floor, or the time my daughter cut her hair into a half-mullet when I wasn’t home).
But, the truth is, even though we are not perfect women, we truly are the perfect moms for our kids. Through learning to laugh at ourselves, recognizing moments of perfection, not comparing ourselves to others, seeing God's hand in our lives, and accepting the reality that isn't only our strengths that make us good mothers, but our weaknesses as well, we can truly come to believe that we are the perfect moms for our kids. And, most likely, our own moms, imperfections and all, are perfect for us, too.
I also am excited to tell you about a new book out called Simplify Supper by Krista Numbers. As a mother of eight children, I feel like I have the dinner thing down, so I wasn't expecting this book to teach me anything I didn't already know. But it did! I love the author's down to earth approach, her history with food, and how her easy, everyday meals will still stand up to family meals AND having guests! She has new twists on old favorites like her Honey Lime Chicken Enchilada that is to die for.
The other thing I really liked about this book is that the recipes are something an everyday mom could easily make. I don't know if this has happened to you, but sometimes when I get a new recipe, I never end up making it because it has some exotic ingredient in it that I never usually buy. The recipes in this cookbook have ingredients that are found in pretty much every kitchen, so I loved that! There were so many good ones that my family is voting on which one I should make next.
So if you are looking to spice up your recipe repertoire with easy, fun meals from one mom to another, then you've definitely got to pick this book up.
