No More Perfect Moms is a breath of fresh air for every woman. Jill Savage encourages us to throw off the masquerade masks and get real! Through her advice to add a little grace to our honesty, we'll find our relationships growing deeper and richer. In this book, you'll find your broken heart uplifted, encouragement for your weary soul and realignment of your thoughts to what truly matters. No More Perfect Moms is a book I am recommending to everyone I know! "[Our] differences are designed to complement one another, not cause us to compete with one another! We need to learn from other moms, but not compare ourselves to them."
Are you tired of yelling at your kids to 'Stop yelling at your sister (or brother)!!"?? Why do I expect perfection from my kids, my husband, my friends, etc. when I am far from perfect? Unrealistic expectations can deflate someone very fast, including myself! No More Perfect Moms is not your typical parenting book. Jill is the real deal and she lays it out "perfectly" for us. We need God's grace each and every day, sometimes moment by moment. When we truly live IN His grace, we are able to pour that same grace out onto others in our lives. You will not be disappointed in this book. It's great to read in a group and/or on your own. You will be amazed, relieved, and even cry as you discover that you are not the only one out there who has what Jill calls the "perfection infection". Learn that it is okay NOT to be perfect, have the perfect body, perfect kids, perfect marriage, perfect home, perfect friends, etc. No More Perfect Moms is a MUST read and a MUST share!
This isn't a parenting book. This is a book for every woman who feels the burden of the appearance of perfection in other women's children, homes, marriages, bodies, and lives. With honesty and straightforwardness, Jill Savage addresses the unrealistic and inaccurate standards that we measure ourselves against, which inevitably lead to dissatisfaction and discouragement. "We compare our messy insides- our struggles, our failures, our less-than-perfect lives- to other women's carefully cleaned-up, perfect-looking outsides. It's a game we moms play that we can never win." This book gives women the courage to set those images aside; to find and embrace the real joy in their real but imperfect lives with their real but imperfect families. This is a thoughtful personal read or great book club or moms group book for women wanting to build closer, more authentic relationships and discard the unrealistic "perfection infection."
I received a free copy of this book as a member of the Launch Team for "No More Perfect Moms," but all opinions in this review are my own.
