The role of mom is often described as the most important job in the world. Rightly so, for so much is at stake during children’s early years and moms are central in shaping character and personhood. However, when the going gets tough (the endless diapers, the continual messes, the endless conflict resolution, the complete lack of personal time, etc.), moms are often tempted to quit their “mom?job”. While few would endorse an outright abandonment of motherhood, others may recommend that a woman treat her role as secondary to personal desires in order to combat feelings of discouragement and/or unfulfillment. The enemy has laid intentional traps cleverly designed to discourage and redirect a woman towards self rather than family. Moms need to know how to recognize these traps . . . and avoid them. Be the Mom: Overcome Attitude Traps and Enjoy Your Kids explores and validates the life of a mom who makes her family a priority and introduces the reader to seven Mom Traps that may be preventing them from a full, joy?filled life.
Loved how this book was more of a self hep book for us Mom's, to help open our eyes to the traps that we tend to fall into, without realizing it. At the end of each chapter there is a short quiz to help us identify how stuck we are in that particular trap. Being a Mom is one of the hardest jobs on the planet, but before we realize it, our children have grown into Mom's & Dad's themselves and make us ponder where the time went and if we strived to be the best we could.
The author helps us realize that we need to be aware of these traps and to call on God to help us BE THE MOM God intended for us to be.
I would definitely reccomend this book to Mother's everywhere, while no one is perfect, we can always strive to be the best we can be!
