Book Review~9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom
I recently read the ebook 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom: Replacing My Worst with God's Best by Sue Detweiler. It was such a blessing! Even though I've been at this parenting thing for almost 23 years, and now a Grandparent, I'm certainly not perfect. I make mistakes. This book will help you feel okay when you blow it as a parent, and guide you back on track.
There are 11 chapters, covering 9 traits: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control. Each chapter is full of personal stories, wisdom, inspiration, and plenty of scripture. There is also prayer at the end of each chapter focused on that chapter's trait.
There is a Bible Study that goes along with the chapters, composed of 11 lessons. Each lesson has a woman's personal story, Reflection Questions, and Group Discussion. At the end of the book are additional resources.
9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom was definitely a blessing to me. We can all use a little (or big) reminder of the amazing job God has entrusted us with in raising our children. The author also reminds us to not beat ourselves up-that we are not perfect, and we should not be striving to be Supermom. This book would be great for Moms with children of any age to read.
