Ali does this by holding nothing back, and sharing her struggles as well as her accomplishments with humor and grace.

In 40 bite sized chapters, Ali breaks her tips into three categories:

Non-negotiables: things she does every day

Add-ons: things she does as needed

Attitude adjustments: personal changes she’s made along the way that helped her to grow as a person

Don’t just feel like you are making it through the days until bedtime. With Ali’s help you can savor every moment of raising your kids, and not only become a better mom, but a better person too.

This is a must read for moms on the path to mindfulness and more joy.”

Randi Rubenstien, Life and Parenting Coach

“Hot Mess To Mindful Mama will make you say ‘I thought I was the only one.’ and leave you feeling like you’ve gained a BFF!”

Emily A.

“I’m not usually a fan of traditional self-help books, but “Hot Mess to Mindful Mom” had me laughing and sympathizing with the author from chapter one. This is one of the first books I’ve read on mindfulness and gratitude that’s willing to admit just how hard it can be to be thankful and happy when surrounded by chaos. Katz is funny, real, and relatable, providing practical (and actually achievable) advice on how to let go and enjoy life, even on the days it doesn’t seem very enjoyable.”

Be Still My Soul: The Cadence of Grace, Book 1

Joanne Bischof

I’d highly recommend Be Still My Soul to anyone who enjoys a good romantic Christian novel.

millefeuille07

Night’s chill tickled her skin. Lonnie pressed her hands together and glanced up. He was even more handsome up close. Having grown up the shy, awkward daughter of Joel Sawyer, she’d hardly spoken to any boy, let alone the one who had mothers whispering warnings in their daughter’s ears and fathers loading shotguns.

Pretty Lonnie Sawyer is shy and innocent, used to fading into the background within her family, and among the creeks and hollows of the Appalachian hills. Though her family is poor and her father abusive, she clings to a quiet faith. But when handsome ladies’ man and bluegrass musician Gideon O’Riley steals a kiss, that one action seals her fate.

Her father forces her into a hasty marriage with Gideon—a man she barely knows and does not love. Equally frustrated and confused by his new responsibilities, Gideon yearns for a fresh start, forcing Lonnie on an arduous journey away from her home in Rocky Knob.

Her distant groom can’t seem to surrender his rage at the injustice of the forced matrimony or give Lonnie any claim in his life. What will it take for Gideon to give up his past, embrace Lonnie’s God, and discover a hope that can heal their two fractured hearts?

Gideon only ever cared about himself. Now that Lonnie is his wife, will he ever be worthy of her heart?
