Memoirs of a Working Mother: Fighting for Balance, Managing Expectations and Channeling Love
By: Linda Arrey
The title says it all. This novel covers the daily struggles of being a full-time wife, mother and career woman. Linda is what some women refer to as a "wonder woman". We stand back and ask ourselves "How does she do it all and still keep her sanity?" What sets this woman apart from the rest of us busy moms? She is a Certified Life and Leadership Coach, Philanthropist, and Speaker. She is the Owner of Linda Arrey Global, LLC, and CEO/President of Women in Leadership Development and Empowerment, INC., a philanthropic organization of professional women from diverse backgrounds and birth from Linda's vision and dedication to the education and empowerment of women globally and her inclination to improving individual and community standards. And now, we can add a published author to this list of outstanding achievements.
She holds a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration and Business. Among other community and professional organizations, she is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives and the NGO Committee on the Status of Women Globally. She's an Air Force Captain currently serving as the Chief Information Officer at the 436th Medical Group, Dover Air Force Base, Delaware. Ms. Linda is a member of Academy Women, a world class professional development organization for military women and veterans.
The author has taken her expertise as a Certified Life and Leadership Coach and applied it to motherhood, family and career within the pages of Memoirs of a Working Mother. You may consider her your own personal GPS in your individual life as well as in your business career. She is offering a partnership of her own experiences to guide you in the somewhat murky waters of parenting where there is no real handbook available. Linda will offer you guidance and suggest alternative routes that you may not have considered. She has been a long-time advocate of helping women discover balance and compassion for both the mom at home and the professional workplace. Oftentimes, a woman will lose her self identity in her job and even further as she gives even more to her family's needs. Linda is on a mission to help working mothers live their best lives. According to Ms. Linda: "No working mother should work endlessly, yet fall short of enjoying the very life and loved ones she works tirelessly for."
The pages of this book reveal among other things, the challenges and triumphs of returning to work after childbirth, battling with fibroids, finding balance with family and above all else, the quest to love the reflection in the mirror through a robust offering of stories, strategies, and anecdotes.
The book insert gives the best possible description of what to expect within Memoirs of a Working Mother: To be a mother is to wear an invisible cape, harnessing your power to bring about balance to the lives of those in the world around you. From infinite loads of laundry to hours spent preparing lunches and the offering of a never-ending replenishment of love, you do it all. The greater question becomes, who's coming to save you? No matter what your family dynamic may be, mothers are united under the common bond of the act of simply trying to stay afloat. Memoirs of a Working Mother is the unfiltered and insightful truth, according to the author.
"Working mothers deserve to use their God-given talents to create sanctuaries of love for their families and to thrive outside of the home, guilt free. After all, we wear the capes." – Linda Arrey
