What do you hope folks will gain from this project? An Encouraging, Practical Guide to Having Peace and Partnering with God as a Mom. Are stress and feelings of inadequacy your constant companions? Peaceful mom. It hardly seems that the words could go together. Yet the peace we crave can be ours in every season of raising children. Whether you have teenagers or toddlers, being a mom is a daunting and amazing responsibility. And it's a part of God's design for you. You are deeply loved by God. Draw from the well of a relationship with him--even if it's a new well--to sift through all that the world plops in your path. Learn to partner with him. Grow stronger and more confident and begin to see your self the way God sees you--as a woman, as a mom, and as his child. Be encouraged and motivated through prayer and dialogue examples, personal stories, and scripture applications. Consider your approach to being a mom, making commitments, and the power of forgiveness. Discover how God works through you to raise and shape your children, as you learn and grow with a peace that is truly beyond understanding.
