The Mother's Mite: Why Even Our Smallest Efforts Matter

The Mother's Mite: Why Even Our Smallest Efforts Matter - DeAnne Flynn Last weekend I attended Ladie's Night at our local Deseret Book and this beautiful charismatic author took my children under her wing feeding them oreos. Then she went step further, requesting a picture and giving me a copy of her book for review. DeAnne Flynn is so incredibly nice! Her book The Mother's Mite is one I think all mothers should read. Each chapter is a story emphasizing a tiny life lesson learned from a mom. And together all of the accounts add up to remind us what a vital role we play as caregivers, women and nurturers-that every little act of service orchestrates a bigger impact in the lives of those we touch. There are recipes, definitions and quotes intermixed in the pages. I read it all in one sitting on Sunday and by the end was in tears. What a tribute DeAnne has written! I would recommend this as a perfect gift for Mother's Day or just a thoughtful token to a friend in need of a pick me up. Five stars and a smile to Mrs. Flynn, mother of seven children and talented journalist. Check her website for an opportunity to help others and for stories that rejuvenate the soul.
