Flex Mom: The Secrets of Happy Stay-at-Home Moms
Motherhood doesnt have to mean losing yourself...
Most moms are grateful they make the choice to be a stay-at-home mom (SAHM), but after a couple of years, they may feel like theyre losing their mind. The alternative is going back to work, but that doesnt seem right either.
Flex mom is for mothers who want a third model of motherhood, somewhere between stay-at-home mom and working mom. This third way is to be the primary caregiver for their children while deliberately creating a path that fuels their passions leaving them fulfilled and confident.
Described as a melting pot of positive psychology and coaching, with the humor and honesty of Anne Lamotts Bird by Bird, Flex Mom helps moms make the fleeting childrearing years their best yet.
Hope Unfolding: Grace-Filled Truth for the Momma's Heart
God's love, plans, and promises for you are forever unfolding.
I get it, Momma. I totally get it.
Every day you wake up and try your very best. You love, give, and pour out your life for the ones who call you Momma. But no matter how much you offer, there are still days you feel as though you come up short. You worry, Am I loving these babies enough? Is this ever going to get easier? Why does it seem like I am the only one who cannot balance it all?
Sometimes, we just need hope (and maybe a long uninterrupted nap). We need someone to help tune our hearts to the voice of the Father and to remind us that He has not forgotten about us.
In Hope Unfolding, Becky Thompson is a friend who reminds you that you aren't alone, and that God is still writing your story. She guides you to encounter the Truth of God's presence that not only fuels you with strength, but also a fresh confidence. And beyond gaining faith that tomorrow could be different, you find hope and purpose where you are standing today.

The Happy Stay-at-Home Mom: How to look and feel amazing after having your baby
Finally: A Guide About Taking Care of Mom During Babys First Year
What if you could let go of the guilty feelings that come with leaving a career to stay at home with your little one? What if you could overcome common new motherhood struggles and achieve sleep, sanity and self-fulfillment all without breaking a sweat? (Okay, occasional sweating is fine.)
In other words, what if you had a handbook that explained not what to do with your new baby in that trying first year, but what to do with yourself?
These are the questions Sara Gaviria started asking herself midway through her pregnancy. Before the bun in the oven, she had lived in different countries, worked as a Manager of Hispanic Publications, and enjoyed the company of colleagues in a corporate environment.
So when she had a full-on panic attack at the enormity of her decision to leave her sales and marketing career and become a stay at home mom, she started looking for resources to show her the way. Thats when she discovered there arent any!
So she wrote the book on happy mommy-hood herself. In this helpful and hilarious guide, youll encounter insightful stories, incisive research, and charming personal anecdotes. Youll also learn:
What no one (seriously, no one) tells you about your body after delivery
How to cope with breastfeeding obstacles and overcome challenges
How to deal with one of the most common emotional after effects of pregnancy
Why the best-laid birth plans go awry and what to do about it
How to approach eating and exercise (without saying goodbye chocolate!)
Why you need fitness plans broken down by month
How to transform any complexion from droopy to dewy immediately
Why you should take your grandmothers old beauty trick seriously
The no-fuss approach to beauty, stretchmarks, hair, and sunglasses (yes, sunglasses)
The Mommy Dress Code, and how to stop breaking it for good
What to do about your husband er, that is, how to act in partnership with your husband
How to remain mindful through the madness of the first year
How to reconnect with a tribe in your target market (fine, so Sara may not have let all of the marketing lingo go)
Why lean in may be the exact wrong advice for you
Why finding your passion is more than a buzz phrase, and how to go about it
See, being a mom is more than learning the right breastfeeding tips, dealing with postpartum depression and losing weight after pregnancy. Its more than skincare and tribes and healthy sleep habits. Its all those things too, of course but with a huge dash of realism, tranquility and wit all mixed in. Sound like the recipe for your first year? Youre in luck.
