The Busy Mom’s Guide to a Happy, Organized Home: Book Review

In July I attended a special blogger event at the Kitchens of Sara Lee outside of Chicago. While I was impressed with the amount of nutritional information the folks at Sara Lee were able to convey in just one day, I was even more impressed with the other women attending.

One of those women was Kathy Peel.

I first heard of Kathy when one of her PR contacts donated The Busy Mom’s Guide to a Happy, Organized Home to a giveaway I was holding. While her bio and website impressed me, I was still blown away meeting her in person. Kathy is simply one of the most engaging and dynamic people I have ever met. When she speaks to you, she looks you straight in the eyes and there is no doubt that she is truly listening to what you are saying. She was fascinated with the information presented, asking all of the questions that the rest of us didn’t think to ask. In short, we just a joy to have among us that day.

After the event Kathy graciously sent a copy of her book to each of us just as an act of kindness….or maybe because having spent a day with us, she knew how desperately we all needed her help. Since then I have been meaning to write about the Busy Mom’s Guide, and Resourceful Mommy book week seemed like the perfect time to do it.

Unlike many self-help or advice books, the Busy Mom’s Guide gives very quick and easy to implement answers to mom’s questions and helpful tips and tricks. While the book is incredibly readable, the take-away is impressive. There are tools, checklists, charts, online resources and more. Having spent a day with Kathy, it is not surprising that this is an incredibly dynamic resource.

You’ll like this if…you are a mom who wants to move beyond parenting philosophy and into action steps to make your life and the lives of your family members better.

This book is not for you if…you do not appreciate a parenting book with an underlying theme of God and family.
