Taking Care of Mama: Learning to Look After Yourself While Simultaneously Raising Your Little Ones by Joy A. Mead [REVIEW]


Many women enter motherhood with little preparation for the incredibly important, yet demanding job role before them. Taking Care of Mama is a conversational encouragement for anyone who is a mother or about to become one. At the heart of this book is the theme of mothers learning to look after themselves, while they are simultaneously looking after their little ones. It can be easy to lose oneself while meeting the family demands, but in order for mama to give her best to her husband and children, she must acknowledge that she is neither a superwoman nor a robot, but instead, she is a human being like the other members of her family. Mothers have needs themselves which must be met, including being able to understand emotions and feelings, holistically aiming to nourish themselves, being surrounded by a good community, and choosing to discover the beauty and joy in being mothers.


Mead combined her experience as a Christian wife and mother with those of eight other women and the result is a refreshing look at motherhood!

If you or someone you care about is in this stage of life, make sure that a copy of this book is nearby to offer the honest, no-nonsense approach to mothering.
