Today I am celebrating the launch of the book, Hoodwinked: 10 Myths Moms Believe and Why We All Need to Knock It Off, written by my dear friends Karen Ehman of Proverbs 31 Ministries and Ruth Schwenk from The Better Mom.
I had the honor of endorsing this book. Here it is!
Hoodwinked reads like an encouraging letter from a friend. It is full of grace, Biblical wisdom, and inspiration. Many books on motherhood leave me wondering if I’m doing it all wrong. Karen and Ruth are bravely transparent and meet moms right where we are. This book gives us the hope and encouragement we need in the midst of weary days.
Want to know the secret for being a great mom?
Think she keeps house like June Cleaver, cooks like a Food Network star, and actually does all of the things she pins to her Pinterest boards? Oh…and all while calmly raising her kids without ever raising her voice? Yeah….right.
Karen Ehman and Ruth Schwenk have had enough of these misconceptions. Myths such as: “The way I mother is the right (and only) way,” “Motherhood is natural, easy, and instinctive,” or “My child’s bad choice means I’m a bad mom.” These myths leave moms hoodwinked and sometimes even heartbroken.
Moms have been hoodwinked—tricked into believing lies that keep them from not only enjoying motherhood, but forging friendships with other moms who might tackle the tasks of motherhood differently. Myths such as “Mothering is natural, easy, and instinctive” cause moms to feel like failures if they have questions or apprehensions in raising their kids. Operating from the premise that “The way I mother is the right (and only) way” puts up fences between moms instead of building bridges of encouragement between them. Lies such as “I am my child’s choices” tempt moms to mistakenly believe that if their child makes a wrong choice then they, in turn, must be a bad mom.
This book will enable mothers to:
- Identify the ten myths of motherhood our current culture perpetuates
- Replace the lies with the truth of what God says in the Bible about mothering
- Acquire practical tools to help them form new and improved thought patterns and healthy behaviors
- Forge healthy, supportive relationships with other moms of all ages and stages
- Confidently embrace the calling of motherhood as they care for their families in their own unique way
I’m so excited to be giving away 2 copies of this book today!
