Review: (un)Natural Mom

        `(un)Natural Mom` is a Christian living book for young moms written by author Hettie Brittz. It is not another `what you should be doing` book. As the author claims she is also an (un)Natural mom. The tagline reads `Why You Are the Perfect Mom for Your Kids`. Although the book is written for young moms; dad's, grandparents and caretakers may benefit from reading it also.

        Hettie encourages mom's to enroll online in the private Tall Trees Training website. The website has a parenting profile tool where you can identify your unique three-dimensional mothering style (Nurture Profile, Discipline Profile, and Mentor Profile). Although the reader is encouraged to visit the website the book also goes over the different personalities.

        The book is written in such a way it takes the pressure off the mom. As I read about author Hettie's inadequacies, as a young mom, I was able to let go of some of my misfortunes. For me it seemed every other mother was a natural, while I was struggling. Every other mother could probably tell I was struggling, but I was not about to admit it to them or myself. God did not make us to be some other mom. He made us to be mom to our own children, whatever that may look like.

I recommend this book to mom's, dad's, grandparents, and caretakers.
