Just when you think you've caught a moment, it's gone. Days filled with baseball practice, and piano lessons, and cub scouts... till eventually they become a blur.

Some stages you're happy to be over with (potty training), while other stages you'd give anything to have back (snugging before bed). Slow Down is a reminder to embrace your children at whatever stage they're in. Whether you're embracing the stage of ABC's and peek-a-boo, or struggling, yet embracing, through the pre-teen years, these moments will pass too quickly, and the only way to hang on is through this realization. Grab hold of the moments, pick your battles, and enjoy the ride.

Laura Rene4 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful giftAugust 12, 2017Laura ReneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This is a lovely, gift-type hardcover book with reflections on motherhood from not only Nichole Nordeman but also several other well-known women. There are beautiful real-life pictures on each page, great writing, reflection points in each chapter, and space for journaling. This would make a fabulous baby shower gift. I haven't read all of the book, but I've been impressed by the authenticity of the writing. It's neither a fake, fluffy depiction of only the sweet parts of motherhood but neither is it about fighting through the dreadful trenches of motherhood. It's a great mix of the reality of the beautiful and the reality of the hard. I've already been brought to tears a few times, and definitely nodded my head several. I used to listen to Nichole Nordeman years ago in her first gig as a Christian music artist. I didn't realize she had gone through some rough times, including a divorce. It made me really sad to read her book knowing that she was a single mom. I don't mean that in a judgmental way, but more in a way that my heart just saddens anytime I hear about motherhood after a broken marriage and how tough that would be. Despite that sad reality, Nichole seems to treasure her children and motherhood and writes in such a beautifully real and relatable way. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
