Publisher's Description

Moms have been hoodwinked—tricked into believing lies that keep them from not only enjoying motherhood, but forging friendships with other moms who might tackle the tasks of motherhood differently. Myths such as "Mothering is natural, easy, and instinctive" cause moms to feel like failures if they have questions or apprehensions in raising their kids. Operating from the premise that "The way I mother is the right (and only) way" puts up fences between moms instead of building bridges of encouragement between them. Lies such as "I am my child’s choices" tempt moms to mistakenly believe that if their child makes a wrong choice then they, in turn, must be a bad mom.


In their encouraging "we’ve been there" style, Karen Ehman and Ruth Schwenk enable mothers to:

  • Identify the ten myths of motherhood our current culture perpetuates
  • Replace the lies with the truth of what God says in the Bible about mothering
  • Acquire practical tools to help them form new and improved thought patterns and healthy behaviors
  • Forge healthy, supportive relationships with other moms of all ages and stages
  • Confidently embrace the calling of motherhood as they care for their families in their own unique way


 A six-session video Bible study for group or individual use is also available.

Editorial Reviews

Which of us moms, before we had kids, didn’t swear that we’d get it right, only to find out somewhere along the way that motherhood isn’t always everything it’s cracked up to be? Equal parts encouraging and inspiring, Hoodwinked is the perfect dose of relief for any mom feeling guilty for not being able to do it all.
Hoodwinked reads like an encouraging letter from a friend. It is full of grace, biblical wisdom, and inspiration. Many books on motherhood leave me wondering if I’m doing it all wrong. Karen and Ruth are bravely transparent and meet us moms right where we are. This book gives us the hope and encouragement we need in the midst of weary days.
Karen and Ruth understand what it is to battle the voices of guilt, anxiety, and inadequacy that plague many mothers who want to give their best to their children. In this book they share life changing truths that all mothers can grab hold of, not just to survive the journey of motherhood but to thrive in confidence and joy.
Motherhood is not a trick or trap---it’s a calling. In our culture, moms are constantly sent mixed messages. This powerful book will help mothers walk in the truth of the gospel!
Hoodwinked is a clever, insightful, and much-needed resource for moms of every age! Debunking the common myths about motherhood touched the deep insecurities I have wrestled with as a new mom. It is a beautiful book all moms should read.
If you’ve ever wondered if you are doing this mom thing right, pick up Hoodwinked for wise guidance, laughs, and assurance. You’ll learn how to tell the difference between what’s important---and what’s not---in this loving guide from two moms who have been there.
Moms of all seasons will find compassion for the demands of the journey as well as hope and inspiration for living faithfully as a mother. Heartwarming stories, soul-filled inspiration, and generous wisdom fill each page so that mothers will feel understood, validated, and uplifted. I love the ministry hearts of Ruth and Karen and know their stories will encourage every mom who reads this book.
Hoodwinked is an excellent source of encouragement for moms. It dispels the myths that confuse us and the lies that bring us down. I can’t even begin to tell you the many times I felt like a failure or how often I compared myself to other moms. If only this book had been around twenty years ago when I started raising children, I would have done things differently.
Hoodwinked is for every mother who has ever questioned her parenting ability. Ruth and Karen, a dynamic duo, have teamed up to equip women to silence the destructive motherhood myths with the freeing truth of God’s Word!
Oh, how I wish I’d had this book when I first became a mom! Karen and Ruth have pulled back the curtain on the lies we tend to believe about motherhood. Even more importantly, though, they have revealed the truth that will set us free. Soak in these words, recalibrate your thinking, and be hoodwinked no more!
