Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” – C.S. Lewis
I love this quote in Tracey Bianchi’s book Mom Connection: Creating Vibrant Relationships in the Midst of Motherhood. Especially when you have kids that are similar in age, moms have a instant sense of connection over shared experiences, spilled milk, and homework.
If you’ve ever felt completely STUCK with young kids at home, this is a great book to set you free. Free to pursue terrific and meaningful friendships. Free to reach out to your community with simple and memorable gestures like hosting a driveway event with 4 gallons of free ice cream to the neighborhood kids (page 146).
Tracey Bianchi speaks for MOPS groups and she understands the challenges that face moms with young kids. Each chapter ends with five mom-tested tips – practical suggestions of how you can put principles into practice. Tracey also provides helpful resources for each chapter – “Books, People, and Other Random Stuff.”
If you crave more friendships in your life, this is a great place to start. You will get many easy, doable ideas that will connect you to others in no time.
