You’ve read the how-to parenting books, heard Hollywood moms’ visions of familial bliss, and endured kitschy mothering books’ advice to “just be happy,” yet real moms want more depth than L.A. entertainment and recycled five-step-plans to parenting perfection.

They deliver wisdom, faith, and humor while affirming the adventure and gift called motherhood.
