Synopsis: Vitality. Passion. Tranquility. Do any of these words currently describe you? 
Finding Mom will reawaken your dreams and help you to find and reinvent yourself.

Sometimes we love being a mom, but get frustrated when motherhood takes over our life. You are a mom and so much more. That’s why it’s important to start your journey to find your purpose beyond just being a mom. Learn the secrets to finding “me time” in even your busiest days. Uncover and recover your unique mom personality with a personality quiz. Create a sustainable and effective plan for your future that your family will support. No matter how busy you are, how many kids you have, or how young your children are, this book makes finding fulfillment possible for you.

What are you waiting for? Make a difference in your life and start finding yourself today!

Review: This book is a quick easy read, which makes it perfect for busy moms. I read the whole thing, as well as took all the quizzes included, in just over an hour, so it could be done during nap time.  

I would have loved to get advice like this when my children were younger. I can remember feeling guilty when I took time just for me as if I were "deserting" my maternal responsibilities. But I can also remember being refreshed and looking at situations with fresh eyes after having that "me time."

Reading this book and actually completing all the assignments in the pages is a bit like having your own private life coach. You might be surprised to see the differences between how you see yourself and how other people see you--and then you can work on a plan to close that gap. 

I would also add that this book is not JUST for moms. Anyone who is looking to improve their life can make use of the strategies found here.
