Reviews - What do customers think about What Every Mom Needs (Updated)?

A great book for the woman who feels like her only identity and purpose in life is to be a "Mom" and has forgotten her own name. This book encourages women to cultivate their own interests (again) and encourages women to make time for themselves, because one must be refreshed in order to refresh others. This book lets you know that you are not the alone in your struggles of parenthood, and that it's fine not to be the perfect "super mommy".

For readers who are turned off by the "evangelizing" in the book I have a few things to say to you: NO ONE FORCED YOU TO READ THIS BOOK. Don't be turned off by the writers' use of Biblical principles. They're only suggesting that you get into the Bible and become a better person. They're showing you a way to make your life easier, based upon their own (and countless other THOUSANDS of other women's) experiences.

Secular/Non-Christian working parents need not read  Mar 6, 2006
I could sum up this book very quickly:
1) Trust in God for everything
2) Read the Bible
3) Attend church
4) Ask your husband, church, other Christians for help

The book is full of fluffy ideas like: "We need to know ourselves the way God knows us" "Find a Christian counselor" and advice for single mothers to simply attend church if seeking help.

The book primarily revolves around the Bible and its interpretation of parenting. Why not cut out the middle-man and just read this "wonderful book?" It's not like the Bible is a work in progress.

This book is more about proselytizing and keeping Evangelicals reading "inspired" books rather than competing viewpoints. And with America being one of the most pure Christian nations in the world ( US is more Christian than India is Hindu and Israel is Jewish ). Anything published by Zondervan should be looked at skeptically.

I also dislike how males are stilled deemed unworthy parents in the Christian community. They can assist and help , but cannot be considered primary parents. But given this books lack of true substance, I doubt it would have made any difference.
Heaping Dose of Medicine  Jan 12, 2005
I purchased this book when my kids were preschoolers and I was struggling to find my place as a new mom. This book was a heaping dose of medicine to me that revealed that I wasn't alone in the emotional turmoil of the mothering role. It doesn't given parenting advice, but speaks to the hearts of mothers as individuals. It gives helpful building block ideas to help one to form a personal checklist and keep emotional and parenting health in check. I purchased about 20 more copies to sell in my ladies group since I felt there were so many new moms that would benefit from this. They all went! It's a keeper for me.
Exactly what I needed...  Jul 13, 2004
I bought this book when my firstborn was a newborn and I was struggling with all of the changes involved in being a new mom. This book was a huge relief. Mom's are allowed to dream and grow! I just needed someone to tell me that...
LOVE this book!  Apr 24, 2003
If you are a mom and are struggling with your new role and how to adjust, this book is for you!! It is funny, compassionate, and well-written. I love the realistic quotes from other moms as well as the inspiring ones from other books. Reading this reminds me that I do have a very important job and that I am important to my family. Buy this book!
