Giveaway is now closed.
I was super psyched about getting the book Mom Connection: Creating Vibrant Relationships in the Midst of Motherhood by Tracey Bianchi to review (and give away, check out the info below) especially since I just attended the MOPS leadership summit recently. We are finishing up our 2011-2012 MOPS year, and heading into planning for next year. The theme is Plunge: Love as if your life depended on it. It’s all about relationships! This is the theme book for the year, and it has some great practical ideas on how we can grow our relationships with those around us. You can read more about Mom Connection over at our review blog.
About the Book
In this witty, encouraging book, Tracey Bianchi guides moms on a journey toward celebrating and discovering the underlying rhythm of their lives and how that rhythm pulls them into vibrant relationships. Through stories of her own life as a mom and the experiences of others, she shows moms how to gracefully engage the people who cross their paths rather than viewing others as tasks on a list. She also offers a way to find balance in this busy exercise called motherhood.
About the Author

She’s a sought after communicator and has contributed to a variety of publications and organizations from Sojourners to MOPS International, from The Washington Post to her first book via Zondervan.

She also serves on pastoral staff at Christ Church of Oak Brook (a congregation of 2000+) where she helps coordinate a contemporary worship community as well as teaching and preaching regularly.

I can’t wait for our upcoming MOPS year! I would love to learn how to further build and deeper relationships with other moms during this busy stage of our lives.
I’m always interested in learning more about connecting with other people, especially relationships with other women. =)
