Imagine having a wise, loving guide ready with advice and encouragement whenever mothering gets overwhelming…
Being a mommy may be the most important job there is, but when buried in chaos, crying and dirty diapers, it’s easy to forget what matters most. And yet, one simple question can solve most any “mommy challenge”:
“What would love do now?”
Meet Betsy, the mom everyone wanted to call their own. A true parenting guru, she overflowed with unconditional love, silly fun, and infinite understanding. Then, one sunny afternoon, with no warning, tragically, she was gone.Buy Now
Jasmin’s story of triumph and her mother’s legacy helped me tap into a source of strength that I didn’t know I possessed – especially when I’m feeling less energetic or patient with my kids. The anecdotes and examples she shared are wonderfully broken down into manageable “bite size pieces” that feel very clear and simple. Most of all, when I feel “mommy guilt”, I remind myself of Jasmin’s words that mothering is a very hard job and that quality of presence is the most valuable gift I can ever give my family.
As an entrepreneur, passionate about both my career and parenthood, I wanted to learn ways to be an amazing mom while balancing my business. Extraordinary Mommy helped me feel confident in my ability to parent the way that I believe is best for my family. It gave me useful tools for how to approach our life as new parents. For example, now I allocate “work” or “family” time and put my phone on silent when I’m with my daughter, so that the time I spend with her is of the utmost quality. I also prioritize my own well-being without guilt. I read so many useful passages to my husband that whenever a new issue arises he says, “What does the book say about that!?”
Beautifully written with raw emotional content and practical lessons aimed to encourage any parent who wants to be the best version of themselves. As Jasmin puts it, “it’s okay not to know what to do.” Letting go of that control, knowing that every day is going to be different, and that is okay, is such an important theme for all mothers and one that has empowered me as I learn alongside my three children. Refreshingly honest and inspiring, Extraordinary Mommy is a must-read.
Jasmin’s effortless charm and profound insights infuse every page of this incredible little gem of a book. She somehow manages to both comfort and challenge the reader in every single chapter. I especially love her focus on self-care and the tools she provides to combat the drama and overload of modern parenting. I’m glad I didn’t let the “Mommy” focus dissuade me. Be prepared to be inspired!
What I love most about this guide is that it validates the thoughts and fears of a mom. Through the loving examples, I felt empowered through the daily challenges and emotional struggles of being a care-giver. I found the strategies to be practical to digest and implement. Being a mom is the most important job indeed; I’m thrilled to have this bible at my fingertips.
Extraordinary Mommy is filled with wise, helpful, and perhaps most importantly, totally doable practices for mothers. Jasmin offers easy-to-use tools and strategies for real-life moms needing peace, calm, and centering—along with a dash of compassion comes from her own experiences as both a mom and a therapist. This is an excellent and much needed book. I’m so grateful Jasmin wrote this easy to read guide!
This book has helped me shift my perspective when I am feeling impatient or frustrated with my kids. The two simple phrases, “At least” and “I get to” are my quick reminders to be grateful. For example, “At least we are all healthy…or I get to deal with my daughters’ backtalk because I am blessed with healthy daughters who have preferences.” I recommend this book to moms of all ages. Its format is easy to read, with succinct summary points at the end of each chapter for a quick review. If you are looking to create fulfilling, mutually respectful, and loving relationships with your children, this book is a MUST read.
Extraordinary Mommy warmed my heart. I didn’t expect to feel flooded with emotions before reaching the first chapter. I love the way Jasmin connects her “mommy” lessons with personal experiences and her own mother’s advice.Her words are relatable and inspiring, not just for mommies, but for all caretakers of young children!
These books create a simple road map for the complexities of life.
Master Your Life
Your inner dialogue is the blueprint that constructs your life. Are you satisfied with what you’ve built?
Feelings are the roots of our lives. And how we deal with the challenging ones—anxiety, stress, self-doubt, and pain—will absolutely determine the quality of those lives.
Yet, most of us were never taught how to effectively deal with tough emotions. As a result, many will avoid the necessary but sometimes uncomfortable “inner” work by escaping into social media, food, work, shopping, drugs, alcohol or simply staying glued to our devices. The result? Short-term pleasure, but at a precious long-term cost…Buy Now
I was immediately captivated by the first page of this book. It starts off with a poem called The Guest House which describes being human as being a kind of guest house awaiting a new “guest” (happiness, sadness, good news, bad news) every day, in my case, every minute or every hour…my emotions run on a constant high.
This book is the prime example of how to find your feelings within yourself, or at least that is how I took it, because that is what it has been helping me do. It is a guide to help you navigate through everything you feel and how to become more aware of what you feel and more importantly, it has shown me how to be more accepting of all my feelings.
As a psychologist, I am constantly reminded that our feelings effect most every aspect of our lives, yet so few people were ever taught how to handle them in a healthy way. I’m so impressed with how the author creates such a clear road-map for how to deal with uncomfortable feelings. If you have stress, anxiety, anger, frustration, self-doubt or any challenging feelings, this is the perfect guide to “be your own therapist” and learn how to handle life from the inside out. Truly a must-read for all! I am going to start giving it to all my clients!
What is our inner dialogue? What do we say to yourself? How do you deal with unaddressed emotions and how do these feelings impact your life? This book provides the tools to work through your feelings/emotions on a regular basis which empowered me. At first, I thought “well of course…” but when I read it again with more intent – it became clear. The author isn’t preachy which was important to me. I have become a huge fan – now I start my day with her meditations and have joined her mailing list for weekly learning.
I became aware of this author from her speaking engagements and podcasts interviews, and figured it was time to get her book. Since I am a huge fan of Eckhart Tolle, and I knew that she was too, I was curious how this Columbia University trained psychotherapist was going to integrate her spiritual background & studies of consciousness with her psychological training. I was extremely impressed with how she mapped out a clear road map of the inner experience. I realized things about myself that I never realized before, and got new strategies that I had never considered.
I bought this book to help me incorporate daily mindful habits, including meditation and journaling. Jasmin eloquently weaves together theory and practice, providing concrete exercises and examples, as well as a clear rationale behind them. I especially appreciated how at the end of each chapter, there is a summary and writing prompts. Through this approach, Jasmin engaged me as a reader and helped apply the strategies she described to my own life. Because of this book, I’ve created what I believe to be sustainable habits, including a daily meditation. I keep purchasing new copies, because I lend the book to friends – and they don’t want to give it back to me! I’m happy to share the love and knowledge that Jasmin provides in this unique book.
This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I have implemented so many of the practices that Jasmin teaches you and am seeing so many positive, life changing moments for myself. This is an easy read, and I highly recommend it for all ages, and for someone looking to better themselves. I plan to give this book to every friend who I truly love, because the tools provided, when implemented, will make a positive, life changing impact.
Wow- what an amazing read…..if you want to start feeling more in control of your life, and more specifically your mental well being, I highly recommend this book…
Unlike so many other “self-help” books, this one really has a way of breaking down really complicated concepts into smaller, more digestible bits of information. I especially loved the takeaways and steps for action that the author put at the end of each chapter.
This book gave me hope….it really opened my eyes to the power we have in creating the life we want. I am so eager to utilize some of these tools on my journey towards my own mental and emotional well-being!
Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and all the sudden we are faced with challenging emotions. This book will allow you to navigate your emotions more effectively while also recognizing the value you have as an individual.
