MOM SET FREE
Find Relief from the Pressure to Get It All Right
All mothers feel pressure to be perfect for their children. And mothers feel guilt and shame when they think they have failed.
But sociologist, blogger, and author Jeannie Cunnion gives mothers everywhere permission to stop worrying.
We moms are told that we have to get it all right so our kids turn out right. We’re told that their entire futures are riding on our ability to perfectly orchestrate their lives. And we’re told that the strength of their faith hinges on ours. And we begin to believe that if we just try hard enough, we can actually “be enough.”
These impossible standards leave us stuck in worry, anger, guilt, comparison, and shame.
Jeannie Cunnion gets it. And in Mom Set Free she reveals how the Good News of the Gospel empowers us to live—and parent—in the freedom for which Christ has set us free.
Jeannie invites us to journey alongside her as we learn to:
* Lay down what God has not asked us to carry so we can thrive in what He has.
* Embrace our significance in our children’s lives in light of God’s sovereignty.
* Trust God with the children He has entrusted to us.
* Receive God’s grace so we can reflect God’s heart to our kids.
It’s time to breathe deeper, walk lighter, and reclaim the wonder and adventure of parenting.
