Through personal stories from real moms and proven, practical advice, MomSense helps moms honestly assess their skills, embrace their mothering instincts, and develop their own unique mothering style. Rather than pushing one "right" way to be a mom, this liberating book shows moms that they are the best mom for their kids and that they can have contentment, joy, and confidence in their role. A perfect gift for a new or experienced mom, MomSense is also an excellent resource for women's small groups and MOPS groups.

Empowering A Woman to Be the Best Mom She Can Be!
Mom intuition is something a woman brings to her mothering, something that is often not really learned, just known - an inkling, a sixth sense, or a gut feeling. Common sense is using good sense and sound judgment in practical matters. Mash them together and you have MomSense.
Life can be overwhelming but when children become part of the picture, a mom may feel that her life is out of control. In MomSense, author Jean Blackmer guides new and experienced moms through the plethora of advice that is available today. MomSense illustrates that moms do not need to seek perfection but finding their own unique mothering style is what really counts with their kids today. Readers will discover that they already possess the instincts and the ability to think critically to be confident moms and to raise confident kids
