Book Review: The Better Mom by Ruth Schwenk

This little book is jam-packed with practical information on becoming a better mother but only through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Dealing with topics such as not being appreciated, having to be perfect, and dealing with the feeling that everything depends on the mother in the house, this book tackles most of the feelings that mothers deal with.  Several times, as I started a new chapter, I would find myself thinking, "This is exactly how I feel!"  Then the author gave wonderful advice on how to deal correctly with those feelings.

I enjoyed The Better Mom more than I thought I would which was a lovely surprise.  There was one thing I found terribly annoying, however:  the author used "mom" as a verb.  Other than that, I found this book to be very helpful in my role as a mother.

I want to thank Handlebar for my review copy of this book, but my opinions are my own.
