Mom...and Loving It! Mar 23, 2007
I used this book for a bi-weekly mothers group, and it has been a big hit. The writers are down to earth, and realistic ladies who understand what it is like to be a christian mother in today's society. They bring scripture into every chapter, and have wonderful words of wisdom for moms with children of all ages. It can be used for large or small groups, studying 1 or 2 chapters each meeting. The words in this book, and the discussions that come from the topics, are extremely motivating to our group.

If you're a mom (single or with a spouse) and you are tired of yelling at your kids CONTINUOUSLY, feeling resentful of the time they take, feeling guilty for feeling or doing either of the former, feeling guilty for working out of the home, or for even if your working in the home, this book is for you! I picked it up on a whim an it has truly been a Godsend. This book is full of REAL LIFE examples of the things we moms (including the authors) do to our families that can really hurt our relationship with them. I'm not talking about mental or physical abuse - though this book does help with that a little. I'm talking about when you've yelled at your kids for the 82th time to close the cupboard door or to pick up their toys or listen to the whining about how "IT'S NOT FAIR!" day after day after day. This book can really help a mom cope with these daily issues.
It also covers how we as moms can learn to accept ourselves for who we are - not who we think we should be - i.e. Supermom. It's very God focused but not in a preachy way. Trust me, this is coming from someone who loves the movie "Dogma" and who has not gone to church for the majority of her life. It's just a real life book with real life examples of how to use the power of God's love to change your relationship with you children, your spouse (if you have one), yourself and maybe even a little bit with God.
