When you are smack in the middle of the busy mom years, you find yourself constantly wishing for more time. Time flies by, and though new moms probably hear it often, they won’t really understand until their kids are older. It’s hard to maintain that perspective during monotonous days of grocery shopping and diaper changes. But, as author Nichole Nordeman reminds moms in Slow Down, those monotonous days of seemingly trivial things are really the big days that will grow to mean so, so much.
“The moments we never get back. The moments I was always trying so hard to rush through.”
This book is truly a must-have for moms at any stage of life. All of us feel that pull of time and long for a way to connect with the moments that matter.
Grabbing the moments that matter
Being ‘in the moment’ is a huge challenge, as most moms know, and having a resource like Slow Down as both a reminder and a resource for reconnecting is so special. Through short yet powerful chapters with space for journaling, Nichole Nordeman is joined by authors like Shauna Niequist and Jen Hatmaker to help moms learn to ’embrace the everyday moments of motherhood.’
All of the details of Slow Down are perfection. The colorful pages, sweet designs, and vibrant photographs of children combine to make this book such a joy to spend time with. With just enough sentimentality to make you cry, and just enough ‘real’ to make you laugh, it is obvious that this book was written by a mom. As a recording artist, Nichole Nordeman produced a hit song that inspired this book, and it is clear why her song is so relatable for many parents. We all know that time is fleeting–that we must grab ahold of and cherish the ” small, everyday, perfectly imperfect moments with our children.”
