Mothering is messy. Our joy and hope in raising children doesnt change the reality that being a mom can be frustrating, stressful, and tiring. But just as God is using us to shape our children, God is using our children and motherhood to shape us.
In The Better Mom, author Ruth Schwenk, herself a mother of four children, encourages us with the good news that there is more to being a mom than the extremes of striving for perfection or simply embracing the mess. We dont need to settle for surviving our kids childhood. We can grow through it.
With refreshing and heartfelt honesty Ruth emboldens moms to:
- Find freedom and walk confidently in purpose
- Create a God-honoring home environment
- Overcome unhealthy and destructive emotions such as anger, anxiety, and more
- Avoid glorifying the mess of mom-ing or idolizing perfection
- Cultivate life-giving friendships
At the heart of The Better Mom is the message that Jesus calls us to live not a weary life, but a worthy life. We dont have to settle for either being apathetic or struggling to be perfect. Both visions of motherhood go too far. Ruth offers a better option. She says, "Its okay to come as we are, but what were called to do and be is far too important to stay there! The way to becoming a better mom starts not with what we are doing, but with who God is inviting us to become."
