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, moms sense an accelerated pressure to measure up. Then they either weigh themselves 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 women to become the moms God created them to be. With 8 chapters, each personifying a "dirty villain" of motherhood, including Anger (The Grouch on the Couch), Fear (Worry Woman), and Busyness (The Calendar Queen), Kopitzke gently reminds moms 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 has been writing professionally since 2002. In 2011, she committed to use her writing skills for the Lord and launched a devotional blog, Time Out: Devotions for Moms (beckykopitzke.com) where she has published consistent weekly devotions for the past three years with a steadily growing audience of 5,200 unique visitors a month. She is a regular contributor to The M.O.M. Initiative, a collaboration of 27 writers and speakers led by author Stephanie Shott, which reaches thousands of moms per month through blogs and their first event in July 2014. In January 2014, Becky also launched a contributor lifestyle blog, Haven Help Us (havenhelpus.com), a place for "frazzled, flawed and fabulous" women to find encouragement for making their homes a haven both physically and spiritually, despite our inevitable imperfections. To date the blog has had up to 3,800 unique visitors per month. Beyond writing, Becky leads worship and women’s Bible studies at her regional evangelical church and serves as an (in)courage community leader.
 
Publishing credits include:
"Sick Break" and "Sometimes You Need to Do the Laundry" in Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Multitasking Mom’s Survival Guide (2014)
 
"Why I Date My Husband" in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Wives (2013)
 
"The Day I Started Acting My Age" in P31 Woman magazine’s "Everyday Life" online portion (2012)
 
"In the Company of Baby" First Place Winner—MOPS International Writing Contest, Timeless Truths category (2009)
 
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.

    Wow! What a wonderful book. The author opens up and is honest is what we expect of ourselves as mothers and what happens when life actually happens. She does this in a honest way that is easy to relate to. She uses what I call humor which will pull the reader in and relaxes them so they enjoy what they are reading. She points out that we all face our own villains in one way or other, but we can have the power to fight the villains. In this book she identifies 8 villains that can zap our joy. The book is set up where you identify a villain and the symptoms it causes.

    The practical tips and the scripture references are very beneficial. There are discussion questions that can be used alone or used in a group setting that delves into the areas more thoroughly. I would recommend this book to any woman either a parent already or one considering having children. I will definitely recommend this book to my daughter when decides to become a parent. Honestly it would make a great gift to anyone. This is definitely a book I wish I had of had years ago. Even though my children are almost grown this book was beneficial to me.

    I received this book from the publisher for a honest review. I was not required to write a positive review.

    Loved this book! While I am a grandmother of eight, with a 13 year old at home yet, this book gently and convincingly addressed issues that I've long struggled with on a daily basis. Zombie Mommy (exhaustion) and The Maid (Housework) chapters specifically touched issues in my life, but with humor and grace. I highly recommend this books for moms and grandmoms alike.

    This easy to read book sheds light on the truth of motherhood, not the fairy tale, but the often gritty and mind paralyzing lies we think we have to accept about ourselves as mothers.

    Written with a Christian perspective Becky Kopitzke exposes eight "villains"we so often fall victim to, that will destroy our ability to be the moms that we desire to be, the wives we should be and the mothers our children need.

    I loved this book. Looking back now from the perspective of being a grandmother, I see how as a mother i often fell victim to the attacks of these villains when my children were young. I wish I would have had this book then!

    As the author clearly shows, motherhood is demanding, but also one of our biggest blessings.

    This book is an inspiration and I could not recommend it highly enough, buy it for yourself, and other moms or mom to be, tuck it in as a gift , it will be a welcome blessing.

    I received this book from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest opinion, which I have given.

    Where was this book when I was a new mom?

    The Super Mom Myth by Becky Kopitzke talks frankly about challenges of motherhood. Ms. Kopitzke names some dirty villains moms face. The Grouch on the Couch, Worry Woman, Fence Hopper, Calendar Queen, The Maid, Zombie Mommy, Weary Wife, and Martyr Mom are all described and dealt with in individual chapters. Each chapter begins with evil powers of the villain, attributes or characteristics that come to life when the villain is in charge. Right below that is a list of kryptonite for that villain, scripture verses to combat those tendencies.

    Ms. Kopitzke shares stories from her own days as a new mom as well as stories from her friends. These stories will make you laugh, some will make you cry, and others will make you think she has been a fly on the wall in your home. The thoughts expressed are intended to encourage moms of youngsters in their everyday lives. I wish I had been able to read some of these thoughts when I was a new mom. It took me years to figure out some of the information in this book. I would encourage moms of pre-teens to read this book. If you are looking for a book on how to deal with teenage angst, this book doesnt specifically address those issues. It does lay a good foundation for your relationship with your children, however, so it could be helpful in a general way for teen years.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
