    I received an eARC copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. Here is my honest review.

    I really enjoyed this book. I expected it to be more humor - and there were bits of humor but that is not the focus.

    Clemence really hits the profound truth of Motherhood as God designed it in a no-holds barred kind of way....but full of love and grace at the same time. The big truth - as mothers we are to be selfless - and she points that out in scripture. There were many points that I highlighted as gentle reminders that I should be more focused on my family, than myself. Early in the book, Clemence states "I can become the mother I want to be because God is the parent who loved me first". I am so thankful for His patience with me --- of course my child deserves that from me as well. He sets an example of how to love our children.

    One reason I found this book enjoyable was Clemence's writing style - it was easy to follow and felt very genuine. I appreciated her first person point of view and perspective that she doesn't have it all figured out exactly - but she knows what the goal is and has identified the steps (actions and attitudes) to get there.

    I have an eARC copy of this book but will eventually add the printed version to my library to refer back when I need encouragement and gentle reminders of how I can be a better mother.

    This book kept my attention! The author uses humor to help show Mothers that they are not alone in their daily struggles. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I liked how easy the book was to read. I found the stories to be entertaining as well as full of encouragement. I would recommend the book to any mother or grandmother. I would also say it would be a great gift to give a friend who is a mother. If you are struggling or know another mother going through a rough week or month, this book would be perfect to read!

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
