Calling all SuperMoms. Especially those who aren’t [giveaway]

Today is the release day for my friend Becky Kopitzke‘s book, The Super Mom Myth: Conquering the Dirty Villains of Motherhood.

I got to read it early, and I loved it. Even though I’m kind of tired of everything related to being a mom. Don’t get me wrong. I love my kids. And you never stop being a mom. But I am past the “kid” stage so I wasn’t sure how I would relate, even though I knew I would love what Becky had to say, because she’s awesome like that.

But I loved it. Here is my official review:

As a mother of three, I am sick of all the messes, whining and complaining (mine, not my kids’). I try not to worry about all the ways that I have failed in this holy role God granted me. But in The SuperMom Myth, Becky Kopitzke pairs her stories with God’s words and wisdom to soothe, convict, and repair my tired, tattered soul. She somehow climbed into my head and heard my excuses, justification, insecurity, and guilt—and helped me leave them behind. She is real and relatable, and did I mention funny? Her gentle answers reveal Biblical truths and fresh insights that every mom needs to hear. She points us all to the only Superhero who is infallible, reminding us that, by ourselves, cape or not, we can’t save the day. I’ll gladly serve as faithful sidekick to the One who can.

If you still have children at home, you should read this. If you know someone who has children at home, you might consider this as a Christmas gift. It’s a fun read—the material has depth, but you never feel like you’re having to slog through. It’s in bite-sized pieces. And it’s real and loaded with wisdom and truth. It’s the book I wish I’d had when my kids were younger and I was struggling with learning how to juggle the craziness that is life. You can order it at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or wherever books are sold.

I like this book so much that I’ll tell you what: Leave a comment below before Saturday, December 5 and you will be entered into a drawing for a free copy. My treat :-).

    This sounds like just what I need to read as I try to balance all duties of motherhood. It’s so easy to forget God appointed me to this job when my days are filled with often mundane tasks. But in the mundane are the many lessons taught and learned by both moms and kids! I’d love to read this!

  2. God’s love…is not measured by my kids’ behavior. So appreciate that perspective! Some days, I need to hear it! Thanks for the giveaway opp. I love book recommendations from my favorite authors.

    I have often wondered is it me with my children. I’ve had some really tough times with my girls. They are very challenging being a single mom with no support from their father. Nothing has seemed ordinary but then again after going through everything with them I’m not so sure that ordinary even exists. It is a wonderful thing to be reminded that I am not held accountable for how my children act in God’s eye. Sometimes all we can do is pray for them since we cannot control anything about them in reality. Thank you for sending a reminder. You are a blessing!

    All of my children are teenagers right now, and even though I am past the stage when they were home with me all day, I still feel as though being a mother is the most important job I have. It still takes a lot of time, thought, nurturing, prayer, listening, loving, and humor. I would love to read the book you’ve recommended as a way to hear another faithful woman’s perspective!

    we all fall short of carrying out the duties of parenthood according to the expectations we’ve set for ourselves. this is a great reminder that it’s God’s expectations we need to be teaching to our children. this is a book I want to read!!! thank you for sharing it with us, Kelly!

  6. I’m 24 weeks pregnant with my first right now, and this book speaks to me. I’m anticipating the entrance to motherhood and know that there’s really no true way to prepare. But I know that God will equip me as needed, as my journey continues. I’d love to read what Becky has to say!
