Mommy Grace Book Giveaway...

Universally, mothers tend to feel they are not good enough at parenting and fear they are harming their children by not being perfect. In Mommy Grace: Erasing Mommy Guilt, Sheila Schuller Coleman offers overwhelmed moms short stories of authentic motherhood from her own and others experiences and offers comfort by showing how God makes up for human weakness with His own strength.
Because Sheila shares lessons learned the hard way by real moms rather than giving difficult instructions for better mothering, readers will leave the book feeling encouraged rather than lectured. For every mom who feels she's not quite up to the colossal job of parenting, MOMMY GRACE is full of hope and compassion.

Here is one of the sayings in the book I liked: A working mom is a good mom if she works at making sure she doesn't miss out on the memories! I liked that this book had scriptures in it also.

Thanks to Hachette Book company I get to give away 5 copies of this book! To enter leave a comment on this post. For another entry follow this blog. And for 3 extra entries post about this and leave the link in a comment. (please leave a comment for each entry. Enter by July 2nd! (Only residents of US or Canada are eligible.

I would LOVE to read this book. I think it is just what I need. Sometimes I feel so guilty about things. I wonder if I have enough patience with them and if I am teaching them all of the right things. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome book!

I love that she says that a working mom is a good mom. I am a full-time working mother and my mother was as well. I think my mom was amazing and I strive to be a good mom too. I hate being judged for working when I have children. To be honest, I am sure I am a better mom when I'm working than I am when I'm staying at home; we weren't all meant to stay at home with our kids or homeschool them. Besides, financially, we need my income as I'm the primary earner in our house.
