Mothers Are Like...

by Hank Smith

Using his trademark humor interwoven with powerful personal, historical, and spiritual stories, author Hank Smith illustrates how mothers are like elephants, bears, thermostats, and referees.

Don't worry—it's all complimentary. 

Hank also shows how mothers are symbolic of the Savior in the sacrifices they make for their children as they provide advice and wisdom, order and discipline, and protection and warmth. 

Let the mothers in your life know how you feel about them with this humorous and loving homage to moms everywhere.

My Review
I LOVE Hank Smith!
I love his humor and the optimistic way he looks at life. I have had the opportunity to personally work with Hank at a couple of book signings he did and let me tell you...Hank is very humble! He is also very interested in YOU as a person. You can feel his love as he teaches!

Hank knows that mothers are there when you scrape a knee, when you need to pick up pieces of your self-esteem, when you are feeling overwhelmed and/or when you are feeling stressed.

I LOVE these quotes from the book:

"A sweater is a garment worn by a child when its mother is feeling chilly - Ambrose Bierce"

"God could not be everywhere, therefore, he made mothers."

"Perfect mother's don't exist...so stop...comparing someone's best to your worst."

Share this with a mother you love!
PERFECT for Mother's Day!
