deliberate motherhood give-away

by Shawni

I am grateful for motherhood.  So grateful that sometimes it makes my heart swell up to the size of a watermelon. I’m thankful for it despite the fact that my motherhood career took a nose-dive yesterday.  I had an experience with one of my “darling” children that smacked me in the face with the reality that this motherhood thing is no cakewalk.  After I had a good cry with that particular child, I was so glad I could come home and read part of this book to perk me back up a little: 2012-10-19 lake powell 63513[3] That book is a good thing, I tell you.  Each chapter is so inviting to me.2012-11-21 fall 64701Catherine is an amazing writer. And I love Sarah Turner’s chapter.2012-11-21 fall 64699 And hey, look who else is in there…2012-11-21 fall 64702(My sisters I love are in there too, and my mom’s forward made me tear up a bit…more details about the book back here.) Today I get the chance to give one away.  Right here.  Right now.  Just in time for the holidays. Plus, there are two other bloggers giving it away, one today and one tomorrow.  So if you enter all three give-aways you have all kinds of chances to be inspired (or consoled in my case) in the trenches of motherhood.  So enter a comment in the comment section below, then click here and here (tomorrow) to enter the other give-aways and triple your chances of winning (plus, they are pretty cool blogs to check out). Then go prep your turkey and put on your running shoes cause tomorrow is the big day: The second annual Turkey Trot! (hooray)  Come join us if you can! (More details here.) Oh, and Thanksgiving too :)  Can’t wait. I’ll announce the book winner on Friday morning.

We had "that" day here yesterday too. I would love some encouragement! Thanks for being out there with the reality. I struggle on my own (private) blog with that–it's not all sunshine and roses, but we do like to focus on the positive, but I don't want our kids to look back and think, What house was SHE living in?
Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

I've had some moments of tears in the laundry room lately…just tough stuff getting me down. Our kids are almost the exact ages as yours and I think the spread is really tough at this point–15 to 6 brings with it a huge range of "stuff." My husband and I sometimes fall into bed exhausted with the emotional drain of trying so hard to meet everyone's needs and be the best parents we can be. The book sounds good–I'll put it on my Christmas list.

Hi Shawni,
I've been meaning to write a comment for so long now and with the added incentive of your sisters book, which I would love to read, today seemed like a good day! I am a home-educating Mammy of 6 in Ireland and your parents books have been our main point of reference since we came across 'Teaching Your Children Values' 10 years ago now, and many a time I've said to myself 'if they can raise 9 principled, contributing children surely we should be able to muddle through with only 6!'
I love your blog, feeling in someway a connection as we strive to achieve the ideals and values set by your parents and you. Inspired by this I have started my own blog, http://www.homegrownireland.blogspot.com ( in which I have referenced your parents!)hoping in the process to be more mindful myself as well as share with others the ups and downs of our own journey.
The thing I love most about your blog and the portrayal of your family life is 'togetherness'. Even when you're obviously having a 'not going to plan' day the feeling of togetherness and genuine love and respect between you all is palpable and something I hope to emulate in our own home.
One book I would like to recommend to you is 'Hold On To Your Kids, why parents need to matter more than peers' by Neufeld and Mate, as I think it is a book every parent should read.
By the way I also think you would make a great home educator because like me you feel your children are the best thing in the world and love spending time with them!

Your day sounded very much like ours! I'm celebrating Thanksgiving in the mountains of NC with my sister, Nicki and family. She has 5 beautiful girls and I have one and a wonderful son. We are all so blessed – but with girls from 4 to 18 we had our share of moments yesterday! Then we gathered round for our version of Family Fear Factor and the laughter helped close a perfect day. This morning I woke to an amazing sunrise and I know that God has gifted us with incredible treasures – drama and all! Happy Thanksgiving! !
