LOVE giveaway #4: the bliss filled mama

  It had been far too long since I hosted a giveaway... so for my Valentine to all of you, I've organized a week long celebration of gift giving from some of my favorite people. Their offerings are varied and wonderful, and I'm so happy that they've asked me to share them with YOU!
And here comes LOVE giveaway #4: The Bliss Filled Mama: Self-Care for Soulful Mothering
Kathy Stowell,from bliss beyond naptime, is where I go for a good giggle and big ahhh on a regular basis. Wish she lived down the road from me instead of in another country! Nonetheless, Kathy always makes me smile and she's just launched a brand new e-book that I believe will appeal to many a mama out there.

Here's what she has to say about it:
"In The Bliss Filled Mama: Self-Care for Soulful Mothering, I share the strategies and practices that help me pull through this delicate dance of being a loving, present mother who also has the time and energy to tend to her creative spirit and life calling. These are the basic self-care approaches I swear by that help make every day an opportunity to keep my needs front and centre while ensuring my genetic makeup flourishes, happily, for generations to come.
The Bliss Filled Mama offers over 10,000 words of insight into:

  • My approach to optimum health
  • Simple yet saucy mama style
  • Ladies’ night ideas to maintain your precious friendships
  • Ways to garner your partner’s support in your bliss quest
  • Protecting your boundaries                  
  • Housekeeping; simplicity style
  • Exploring and pinpointing the joys in your life
  • Carving out pockets of time to indulge in these joys
  • My own parenting philosophy that accommodates more mama bliss
I know how being a busy mama can make it tricky to sit down and read a whole ebook, so that’s why I recorded myself whispering these sweet somethings into your ear. The purchase of this ebook includes a one hour long MP3 recording of me reading the book to you. Pretty intimate, no?"

Doesn't that sound wonderful?

To enter in the giveaway, leave a comment and a way to reach you in this post before 2/22 at 8pm EST. The winner will be randomly selected and announced on 2/23.
