There are tons of books out there that tell you how to take care of your baby and older child–books for just about any kind of parenting question a mom could have.
But moms need advice about other things besides just basic child care. Moms need to be reminded to take care of themselves as well. Lisa Hendey, creator of CatholicMom.com, has written a book designed to help moms nurture their hearts, minds, bodies and souls: The Handbook for Catholic Moms.
Lisa Hendey is a mom of two teenagers and knows well that all moms need to take good care of themselves if they hope to take good care of their families. She has enlisted the help of professional experts, clergy and many other moms in contributing to this encouraging book. Through shared stories, good advice, web resources and a “Mom’s Homework” section at the end of each chapter, Hendey strives to support moms in those struggles all moms experience.
There’s plenty of concrete advice in this book–but not the kind that tells you how to deal with a six-week-old’s colic or your two-year-old’s tantrums. Instead, Hendey reminds moms not to neglect those things like creating a support system, arranging for a weekly “mom break,” keeping accurate financial records, working in opportunities for physical fitness, and nurturing your spiritual life. The contributions from other moms help the reader feel like she is not alone–that there are many other moms out there who’ve gone through the same thing. The Handbook for Catholic Moms is a great gift for any mom–new or experienced–who could use some extra support and encouragement.
