(I received this book from Blogging For Books. All thoughts are my own.).
Books for moms can be such helpful reads. Believe me, go look at any bookstore and there are plenty to choose from. For me, books on motherhood can be a source of mentoring or it can just be fluff that I don’t glean much from.
I would put Gospel-Centered Mom right in the middle. I was hoping that it would be more, that I would find it to be one of the best mom books out there, but it fell short of that.
I did think that Brooke, who is a mother of boys like I am, gave plenty of real life and she didn’t sugar coat motherhood for anyone.
She gave good ideas to help when times get “hard to handle”.
I think for me it was more personal story, almost like a memoir. I want more Gospel truth, less personal story. Or some kind of balance there. And for me it wasn’t balanced enough. Though, what she said in the way of Gospel was spot on. She wasn’t saying that we should always seek a break in parenting and she wasn’t saying that we can do it all. She was saying that we need Jesus. And so do our kids!
