9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom
9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom:
Replacing My Worst with Gods Best
Every single mom out there has had moments of frustration, loneliness, and feelings of being overwhelmed. We have the choice to give in to our frustrations or turn them over to God. The author has taken the fruits of the spirit and in a clean and concise manner has presented a book that should be a requirement for every mom. There are eleven chapters with study guides to accompany them. The chapters aren't long so it will work for a busy mom, but can also be studied more in depth, making this perfect for small groups or Bible studies.
I picked up 9 Traits for a Life-Giving Mom by Sue Detweiler because I'm a mom and I'm always up for anything that will help me be a better one. I have read quite a few parenting books since I first found out I was going to be a mom. But none of them has reached me so well and spoke to me so elegantly as this book has. The author wrote in terms that every mom will be able to relate to. She shares real life experiences and backs up her thoughts with plenty of scripture. The entire way through the book I was being pointed in the direction of God and my need for Him. I felt encouraged and affirmed as a great mom. But I also felt convicted and inspired to put more of my faith in my Savior and become an even better mom through Him.
The author encourages trust, faith, and total dependence on God. I simply read through the book so that I could write this review. But I will be going back to savor each chapter and go through all of the scriptures and discussion questions. I can't recommend this book enough.
You may purchase this book on Amazon or at other retail stores.
