Not So Perfect Mom
If your list of “I should be a mom who . . .” feels endless, this book is for you. Many moms feel the pressure and guilt that comes from chasing perfection. The drive for perfection has a significant negative effect on the relationships moms are trying to nurture in their homes. Amy Rienow offers encouragement and empowerment to build healthy relationships and feel joy. She writes like a friend reminding moms to embrace each day to make a real heart-connection with their children. Amy’s experience as a counselor and a mother of seven shines through with honest and practical parenting advice from a biblical perspective.
