"Hot Mess To Mindful Mama will make you say 'I thought I was the only one.' and leave you feeling like you've gained a BFF!"
“I'm not usually a fan of traditional self-help books, but "Hot Mess to Mindful Mom" had me laughing and sympathizing with the author from chapter one. This is one of the first books I've read on mindfulness and gratitude that's willing to admit just how hard it can be to be thankful and happy when surrounded by chaos. Katz is funny, real, and relatable, providing practical (and actually achievable) advice on how to let go and enjoy life, even on the days it doesn't seem very enjoyable.”
