Mom Mantras; The Daily Affirmation Guide for Mothers of All Kinds!

Being a mom, whether it be biological, adoptive, step, pet mom, or motherly figure to someone in your life, is extremely important!

It’s amazing, yet can be very stressful at times.  Daily mantras and affirmations are very helpful when navigating motherhood, of any kind.  They help keep a positive mindset throughout the day, they help to shift bad days into good days, they help us to better handle what life throws out at us, which in turn reduces stress, and allows us to set a good example to those who look up to us.

This book, not only provides you with a great number of positive affirmations to read daily, but it also provides you with instructions on how to use these more powerfully throughout your day, for best results.

This book also makes a great gift for the mothers in your life.  Christmas, birthday, mother’s day, grandparent’s day, pet’s day, valentine’s day, and just thinking of you gifts!

Join the Mom Mantras Movement!!

Why?  Because doing things together is much better than doing things alone.
