Book Description

How many times have you felt something is lacking in your family life? You just can’t keep up with the daily demands of managing a household, your priorities aren’t on target, you never have time for yourself, and you wonder why you can’t be more like the “super mom” next door that always seems to have her act together. You’re feeling “less than,” and it’s negatively impacting your family.

Being a mom and family manager is a difficult and demanding job—one that often leaves moms questioning their decisions and abilities, ultimately lowering their self-confidence. But one must lead with confidence to earn respect and ensure that family values are not compromised by the many distractions a family might confront.

In her book, Become the Confident Mom You’ve Always Wanted to Be: 31 Strategies to Improve Your Confidence as a Woman, Mother, and Family Manager, author and parent coach Susan Heid explains how using these 31 essential strategies can help you guide your family with love, faith, a positive outlook, and confidence. This will help you achieve a more fulfilling family atmosphere and prepare your children to positively maneuver through life’s many opportunities and challenges.

As you journey through the 31 strategies, you’ll discover:

* Why it’s important to develop a plan or vision for your family and how that plan, alongside your established priorities, can direct you down the path you desire as you encounter new choices each day.
* Why you need to tune in to your “motherly gifts” of intuition and wisdom.
* How your wellness plan can boost your confidence.
* Why you should “dress the part.”
* Why it’s important to have a routine, and how to be adaptable when necessary by planning for the unexpected.
* Why courage and humor should be in your arsenal of parenting tools.
* How to make sure your child receives your love.
* Why parenting should not be viewed as a competition.
* Why you should recognize your strengths and admit your weaknesses.
* Why you should get “plugged in” to God each day.
* What expectations do for your child.
* Why friendships with other moms should be a priority.
* And much more!

Become the Confident Mom You’ve Always Wanted to Be: 31 Strategies to Improve Your Confidence as a Woman, Mother, and Family Manager can help moms build positive family relationships through confident leadership and goal-focused decisions based on Christian values, consequently “making a difference” in their children’s lives. Utilize these 31 strategies today to stop feeling “less than” and become the best woman, mother, and family manager you can be!

I'm not a Christian, but read this book anyway. There were very insightful ideas that can be universally applied to all parents, regardless of faith. Concise, simply written and easy to understand.

This book gave me the confidence I need in my role and calling as a mother. So much of the time I feel like I am not able to do this job, but with Susan's positive coaching and practical ideas I feel that I can be a godly mother when I rely on God for all my needs. I plan to take my time to implement these 31 strategies to give me the foundation to build a pleasant and productive family life.

The strategies Susan lays out are perfect for any busy mom wanting to stop unnecessary frustration and fuss in her life. I enjoyed seeing the verses she chose to go alongside the principles, and each section has really memorable one-liners that can stick in your mind and keep you on track! Thanks, Susan!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good July 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Many things are common sense for a Christian woman, but it is still nice to know you are on the right track. She does have some good ideas so it is worth the read and it was a quick read for me. Would be a great book for a new or soon to be mom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice book...worth a second read April 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Susan stated very clear and concise ways to become more confident. I appreciate her views and love that there are several verses to backup each idea. I did finish the book rather quickly. Personally I will have to reread it. I read quickly and will forget details unless I go over it again.

I highly advise a notebook or journal when going through this book.
