My Other Name is Mom

Do you ever feel like being a mom is boring and unimportant? Do you feel unappreciated in your home and dream of doing more important things?

My Other Name Is Mom is written by a mother of young children who answers her own questions about the value of motherhood. Just because current culture places a premium on women in the workplace does not mean our role has become less important. In fact, the value of a stay-at-home mom becomes more precious as more women have less children and spend more time in the workplace. Mary offers a realistic look at what motherhood means to family, to society, and addresses many common problems moms struggle with: inferiority, guilt, frustration, anger, and exhaustion. Included are two of the common struggles in the marriages of parents; a brief look at the history of feminism; and how our culture devalues the role of women in the world.
