Publisher's Description

If you've ever forgotten to pick your kid up from soccer practice or accidentally worn two different shoes to the grocery store, this book is for you. Being a mother is not for those who display symptoms of the "Perfection Infection." There is simply no such thing as a perfect mom. And there are no such things as perfect kids, perfect bodies, perfect marriages, or even perfect meals. With refreshing honesty, author Jill Savage exposes some of her own parental shortcomings with the goal of helping mothers everywhere shelve their desires for perfection along with their insecurities of not measuring up to other moms . Jill delivers some much-needed realism as she explains why we need to stop comparing our insides to other people's outsides.  She challenges every mom to exchange her vision of being a "perfect mother" for God's beautiful grace in order to learn to love her real, but imperfect, life.

    This review was written for No More Perfect Moms.
    This is a GREAT book written by amazing ladies with a lot of first hand experience. Not only does it touch base on specific topics, it also gives scenarios and helpful anecdotes to help improve the way we, as parents, can POSITIVELY handle hurdles that our children may run in to. Can you relate to these few excerpts from the book? "We tell a child to 'act your age,' and then we realize he really is!" but "how realistic is this goal when we'd have to admit we don't always act our age?" We can't expect our children to be perfect in anything they do. Nobody is perfect, except God. We need to rid this world of the "Perfection Infection" and give our children, ourselves and our loved ones more Grace. "When we correct our children, we have to let them know we're rejecting their negative behaviors, choices, attitudes, etc., and not them." There are just SO many hints and tips at becoming a better Parent and to not have fewer, unrealistic expectations of our imperfect, yet wonderful, children! You won't be disappointed in this book. There are additional resources in the back of the book, as well as online. I highly recommend you buy this book ASAP!

    Wow what a powerful book for all mothers to read and learn from! The author, Jill Savage, has written other great books but this one is by far her best one yet! I gave this book 5/5 stars. There are many examples and illustrations that will make you laugh and even some that will bring a tear to your eye. They are each perfect for the topic the author is discussing. Every mom should read this book and then go out and buy all their mom friends the book! I thought the author did an excellent job of showing all moms that no one is perfect and we all just do the best we can! I would recommend this book for every mother, no matter what age your children are!

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    Jill Savage's No More Perfect Moms identifies and provides wise antidotes to eradicate the Perfection Infection in numerous areas of our lives, our: kids, body, marriage, friends, days, homes, and homemaking. We are urged not to compare our insides to other's outsides, so that we don't make unrealistic expectations for ourselves. I like how she points out that we're to have realistic expectations but not lower expectations.

    I picked up this book with a certain mom in mind who I knew to always wants everything "perfect". However through Jill's inspired message, I was convicted of my own need to control, which often resulted in my frustration and disappointment in people and situations. The only real control I have is self-control [which is a fruit of the Spirit]. One of her statements that hit a bulls-eye for me was: "When we don't value the moment we are in as much as the one we planned, we'll miss out on precious time with those we love."

    In addition to providing tools to deal with our distorted perspective on perfection, we are led to see that "the imperfect parts of our lives are counterbalanced with the reality of a perfect God who longs to shine His light through the cracks in our lives." That gives me great hope and the desire to share this book with EVERY woman!

    Love this book. It really is for everyone! Not just Moms. We all stuggle with what we think is "perfect" and how we are not that. I love how honest this book is. Another thing that I love about it was all the responses that Jill used from Facebook comments. Real answers from real women. So many times while reading this book it was like a light bulb going off and I was uplifted. This book is a must read. I am sure I will read it over and over to remind myself to "Not compair my messy insides to some elses cleaned up outside."
