Better Together by Jill Savage and Anne McClane
Do you ever look at the group of moms at the park and wonder how they connected? If the answer is yes, this book is for you. Jill and Anne share heartfelt stories of why mommy friendships are so important. I loved that the book was not only encouraging but gave you real suggestions of how to make friends. I found the Mothering Personality Inventory extremely helpful, not only for me to figure out why I act the way I do but also why my friends act the way they do. It is a great tool to see how your friends needs match up to your own needs. Each chapter ends with a challenge for you to complete. I love that it doesn't just give you suggestions on how to make and be a better friend but gives you a real life example you could do today. She also gave examples of different kinds of friendships. I have always heard the expression, friend for a season, a reason, and life. Jill really expounds upon this saying. It was encouraging to know that not all friends will be my BFF and that's ok. We are truly not meant to do this alone. Sharing our struggles and triumphs in parenting with real people and finding your tribe can be hard but it is so worth it. I highly recommend this book to all moms regardless of what season of life you are in!
