Publisher's Description

"This book isn't about raising kids. It's about raising Moms. . ." says author, speaker, blogger, lunch packer, and sidewalk chalk artist Becky Kopitzke. In a Pinterest-perfect culture, you've likely sensed an accelerated pressure to measure up. Then you either weigh yourself down with guilt or become resigned--desensitized, even--to this so-called failure. The Supermom Myth--with humor and grace, yet all the while maintaining a firm grasp on reality--aims to empower you to become the mom God created you to be. With 8 chapters, each personifying a "dirty villain" of motherhood, including The Grouch on the Couch (Anger), Worry Woman (Fear), and The Calendar Queen (Busyness), Kopitzke offers a gentle reminder to rest in the super power of our grace-filled God. 

Author Bio

Becky Kopitzke is a freelance writer, speaker, singer, dreamer, potty trainer, lunch packer, snowman builder, and sidewalk chalk artist. She lives with her handsome husband and their two young daughters in northeast Wisconsin, where a pink indoor trampoline fills half the once formal living room.

Becky welcomes fellow frazzled moms to connect with her on her blog, Time Out: Devotions for Moms (beckykopitzke.com). There she shares weekly devotions encouraging imperfect moms to follow a grace-filled God. Becky is also a regular contributor to For the Family (forthefamily.org) and The MOM Initiative (themominitiative.com), two inspiring resources for Christian families. Beyond writing, Becky serves in women’s ministry and worship arts at her regional evangelical church and volunteers often at her daughters’ school. And sometimes she serves cereal for dinner.

Becky believes parenting is one of God’s greatest tools for building our faith, character, and strength—and it’s not always pretty. Her writing offers solidarity, encouragement, and validation for fellow imperfect moms, for the purpose of pointing our weaknesses, blessings, and victories to God.

Editorial Reviews

"The SuperMom Myth brings a much-needed message of hope, encouragement, and reality that every mom needs to hear. The perfect read for any mom in the trenches worried that she’s not quite getting it right."

Ruth Soukup, New York Times bestselling author of Living Well, Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life

"The Supermom Myth is the scary truth for all us moms. Much like Becky, I got sucked into thinking that busyness, worry, self-neglect, and exhaustion (to name a few) were all on the road to being a Supermom. She does a profound job unpacking the 8 dirty villains and then providing biblical solutions. Our homes were designed for so much more." 

Courtney DeFeo, author of In This House, We Will Giggle and creator of Lil Light O’ Mine
"With wit, wisdom, and tell-all honesty, Becky reminds us that supermoms don’t wear capes; they simply cling to Jesus."

Alicia Bruxvoort, member of the Proverbs 31 writing team
"With disarming humor, transparency, and raw honesty, Becky Kopitzke makes it safe for moms to take off their capes and rest in God’s provision and blessing in their sincere, passionate, and imperfect mothering."

Melinda Means, speaker and coauthor of Mothering from Scratch
"The SuperMom Myth shatters the urban legend of the mom who has it all together."

Kathy Helgemo, speaker and coauthor of Mothering from Scratch
Popular parenting blogger Kopitzke takes on the challenge of reassuring Christian moms that they aren’t crazy, motherhood really is difficult, and help is on the way. Funny and insightful, she is a warm companion on the journey from idealism to reality. -- Publishers Weekly

The author's relatable sense of humor and up­beat perspective make this a fresh, encourag­ing read. Confidently recommend this book to all moms, especially new mothers and those with young children. With its end-of-book discussion questions, this title is also ideal for group study. -- CBA Retailers
