It can be tough to take care of yourself, your kids and your home as a mom. You might feel like you don’t have time for yourself, but it’s essential to make time for your well-being. That way, you’ll be able to be your best possible self for your family.
As a mom, we need to keep learning and working at being better, so I grab with both hands and run with every opportunity I get to learn. I also love to share my learnings, findings and discovery along the way. It gives me great joy to see other moms growing and getting better on this parenting journey.
However, we are everything to everyone paying little or no time to ourselves. So many women have worn themselves out or presently living in bitterness and are ready to snap at any given opportunity.
So you can imagine my greatest joy when I got this beautiful book called “More than a mom” by Kari Kampakis, who happens to be a mom of four beautiful girls and a Girl mom blogger like me.

The more than a mom book is a must-read for moms. I love how it relates to our past and modern-day struggles. It captures how you can know your worth, rest appropriately, build uplifting friendships, conquer stress and anxiety with truth, choose joy, and more. I particularly love the reflection questions at the end of every chapter that allows you to dig deeper into yourself. I love using my journal to document these reflections.
My biggest takeaway is to quit multitasking! I used to think the ability to multitask as a mom made me a superwoman. I learned from this book that years of multitasking train our brain to jump around, making it do loads of mental gymnastics, which affects our concentration. It leaves us mentally exhausted and makes it hard to turn off our thought process as it continues to churn. The best way to find peace and clarity is to do one thing at a time.
One of the great ways to prioritize your wellness as a mom is by investing in things that will help us to better because, like Albert Einstein said, “Once you stop learning, you start dying”.
More than a mom also aligns so well with my values and lifelong goals. I strive daily to be a better version of myself, and besides the help of God, great resources like this help me achieve my goals a little bit faster. Click here to preorder your copy today.
I hope you find great value in this book as much as I did.
You are a great mom!
