It's here!!! Hope for the Weary Mom is now available for purchase. I have already pre-ordered my copy and I cannot wait to dive in. I have kept up with Brooke through the MOB Society for a couple of years. I have also recently completed the Hope for the Weary Mom 5 Day Devotional Challenge and the Fight Like a Boy Mom - Hard To Handle Boys video modules. I connect with everything she says. I cannot tell you how much both of these authors have read my mind and spoken directly to my heart.
Motherhood is the greatest gift we can receive from God. BUT... at times (a lot of the time, sometimes all of the time) it can feel overwhelming and hard. When I say hard and overwhelming I mean the type of feeling that makes you drop to your knees. The feelings that make you cry out to God, begging him that these children (His blessings) will turn out to be functioning adults and citizens. I have asked God so many times, "How did I earn a good GPA in college yet can't seem to get this motherhood thing right?" "How come I don't see the "right" payoff for all of my hard work?" "How come they don't seem like children from Pinterest?" :) Whah!!! Yes, I have had so many moments, days, years of weariness. In fact, I can almost guarantee there will be a weary moment at some point today. It's just bound to happen. If it happens, hopefully a cup of coffee and a quiet spot will follow shortly behind...okay probably not but it doesn't hurt to dream. :)
Here's the deal, it doesn't matter if you are a stay-at-home mom, working mom, part-time working mom, single mom, the list could go on - YOU ARE A MOM, a mom created by GOD. When you feel tired, weary, and ready to throw in the towel, remind yourself that HE has his eyes on you and HIS arms around you.
I am not receiving any type of compensation for placing this book on my blog. I just love these authors and their message so much that I want to share it with all of my favorites mommies.
I hope you buy the book and we can share in the wonderful message Brook and Stacey have brought to us.
