HILARY WEEKS BOOK GIVEAWAY.

Photobucket
The other night I was on bedtime duty alone. After getting Kate tucked away in her crib, I heard the words "one down, one to go," no one said the words, but in my mind, they were clear as day. I laughed out loud, as I realized that this is my life.

The thought made me think of Hilary Weeks' new book that I had received in the mail last week from Deseret Book called, Bedtime and Naptime and Bedtime and Naptime: Simple Joys of a Mom's Life.

In it, LDS singer and songwriter Hilary Weeks, shares some of her favorite quotes, experiences, memories, insights and recipes from motherhood. Along with the book is a CD of lighthearted songs she has written about parenting and mothering. She has shared these songs with thousands over the years and they are finally available in one place.

Listen to this song about a mama's to-do list. It is all so true.



Well lucky for you and me, Deseret Book has kindly offered a few copies of this fun new book to Mamas Who Know readers. I think this little book would make a great visiting teaching gift, or would be perfect for any Mom for Mother's Day. I love the photos and love that the message is to enjoy motherhood.

Giveaway now closed.

Hilary Weeks inspires me to be a better mother. Some nights I listen to her "Just Let Me Cry" and pray that as a mother I am doing okay. My new favorite of hers is "Who You Are." It reminds me that it's okay to do my very best. Thank you!!
