The very act of having a child is a complete shift for a woman, emotionally, physiologically, and spiritually. All three of these areas are touched upon in Momfulness. Denise Roy quotes Zelma Brown saying 'I have hands big enough to save the world, and small enough to rock a child to sleep.' The wisdom and guidance that comes from this book is bound to give hope to any mother that reads it. The pages are filled with tips and suggestions that encourage mothers not to try and perfect their lives, but to make good use of them, both as woman and mothers, alike.
