Although not all mothers feel driven to become Super Moms, many do. Motherhood brings intrinsic demands: feelings doubt, worries and fear of inadequacy, concerns about our children's well-being. Motherhood brings extrinsic demands: finding a sitter that can be trusted, education, sports, church, scouting, etc. Is there a way to achieve balance and maintain a level of sanity?
Dr. Sheila Schuller Coleman's latest book (to be published in April 2010) is a collection of valuable lessons she shares, based on her own personal experiences and relevant scripture. She tells stories of her successes and failures and the things she learned as she raised four boys. She offers scripture and prayer after each lesson, grounding all of her advice with the strength of her faith.
I recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with the demands of parenthood. I'm hosting a giveaway on my blog for the 1st 3 comments requesting a copy.
