About the book:

A Tribute to All MothersLoren Slocum knows what it means to be an outstanding mother-because she's grateful for every moment she spends with her son. But she's noticed that many moms out there don't receive the praise they deserve for the amazing sacrifices they make each and every day. No Greater Love is her gift to mothers everywhere, congratulating them for being extraordinary, and encouraging them to celebrate the miracles and opportunities of motherhood.Mothers have enough "how to" books, but No Greater Love is something much more powerful-a "how to be" book. As they try to balance their many changing roles, a little bit of soul searching can help shift their perspective and enable them to reach their full potential. Mothers need to acknowledge themselves, and make their own dreams a priority; they need to treat themselves with the same level of caring they give to others. When mothers nourish themselves, they build a better foundation for their children.By honestly answering the questions presented in this book, you will set a standard for the mother you know you can be-the type of mother who sets an inspiring example for her child, her family, and for all others whose lives she touches. Slocum's inspirational message will nurture you, challenge you to grow, and transform your feelings of weariness or exhaustion into excitement, passion, and energy. You will rediscover your own imagination and take joy in playtime with your child.No Greater Love has striking photographs that reflect and illuminate the gentle wisdom that resonates within each page. Its unique format includes inspirational quotes, original definitions and creative "mom notes." It tenderly compares birth to the beginning of a magical journey, celebration to a party that delights the soul, and motherhood to the shepherding of hope. Moms can reflect on a series of questions that will help them to be mindful and present: What is my baby going to teach me today? How can I be even more patient today? What made me smile today?The simplest moments can impact our children forever. You and your child can share in so many adventures together, from your child's first steps to his or her first time on ice skates. You can show your child new things like animals, sandcastles, puddles, or rainbows. Our children learn from our example and our actions-the greatest gift you can give your children is to be someone they can admire.No Greater Love recognizes that every day is mother's day. It defines motherhood as . . . truly loving your child . . . being curious with your child . . . being present with your child . . . playing with your child . . . showing your child what is possible . . . teaching and learning with your child . . . and having gratitude and faith. No Greater Love is full of profound grace that will touch your heart.AUTHORBIO: Loren Slocum is the crew director for the Anthony Robbins Companies, and has been responsible for the training and event management of thousands of volunteers worldwide.
