I Am A Mother by Jane Clayson Johnson. Published by Deseret Book.
|Retail Price: $12.76|
As I picked up this book to read, I had second thoughts about reading it, since I figured it would just serve to make me feel more guilty about the ways that I am failing as a mother. Quite the contrary! It buoyed me up and made me feel like all my feelings and frustrations are normal. Jane Clayson Johnson shared so many uplifting stories that I didn't want to put the book down. There were inspiring quotes from church leaders as well, and many times I was brought to tears because I felt like someone out there understood.
Thank you Sister Jane Clayson Johnson for your words. They touched me greatly. Sis. Johnson expresses in her book how her life didn't turn out exactly how she had planned, being in network television for many years instead of being a mother and wife like she had originally wanted. I think part of the reason her plan was different was so she could make a difference in all of our lives with her life experiences and touching words.
