Book Description

“Right now, I have nothing to give. Nothing. Nada. I’m tired and don’t feel good and honestly, I want a break from everything. It’s not that I want to leave my family, trade them in, or get new ones. I WANT to be with them. I just want a break from hard hearts, discipline, correction. I want their hearts changed and I can’t do it myself. Sometimes, the knowledge of this makes me feel hopeless and helpless.”

~A Weary Mom

This NEW, expanded version of Hope for the Weary Mom includes over 50% more content!

"Stacey and Brooke understand the hearts and needs of moms today. They speak with a voice that’s encouraging, authentic and will draw in readers from many different seasons and stages of life that have one thing in common: they need hope."

~Holley Gerth, author of You're Already Amazing

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST read for every mom! October 20, 2012
By LaToya
Format:Kindle Edition
As a single, homeschooling mom of two boys ( one with SPD, ADHD, and ODD) weary was how I felt daily. That voice in my head telling me how much I failed as a mom was so loud it was almost deafening. Then I read "Hope for the Weary Mom". I laughed, I cried and I finally knew I was not alone. That nagging voice listing my failures is harder to hear. This book has given me hope, a sense of empowerment and a community of women to walk with on this journey called motherhood.

Brooke and Stacey have done a fantastic job expanding this book and really getting to the heart of motherhood struggles. I think that every mother needs a copy of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weary mom? Read this book! November 11, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There is just something that flooded my heart when I read this book. It was a sort of peace when reading the oh so honest words of these two women. Words that made me feel like I wasn't alone in the weariness of being a mama. Yes, my babies are a gift from God and no, I wouldn't change anything about any of them (no matter what I may think on those bad days!), but seriously ladies, being a mom and wife and this and that, is just plain hard a lot of the times. It is GOOD to be honest about the hard stuff. We NEED to be honest about that hard stuff in order to get through it. This book not only provides a path to so much hope, but it also is that friend whispering, "You are NOT alone. I feel that way too!"

Read this book, weary mama. And then pass it along. You will be blessed (and thankful and perhaps even a little less weary!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Because we ALL need hope! October 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I am thrilled to recommend Hope for the Weary Mom: Where God Meets You in Your Mess by Stacey Thacker and Brooke McGlothlin.
Does that sound like you? Are you worn out, tired, feeling overwhelmed, stressed and guilty that you're not doing it all, perfectly, every day? Can you readily admit your life is not only messy but a mess?

Here's my favorite, raw, honest excerpt that every single overwhelmed mom can relate too:

"Honey, I need you to come home now. The two-year-old is screaming because he wants to sit on my lap while I'm nursing the baby. The baby is screaming because the two-year-old keeps trying to sit on his head. When the two-year-old tries to sit on the baby's head he can't nurse. Now he won't nurse at all and is screaming his head off. The bulldog has started crying because he wants to be fed (doesn't everybody!!) and I'm going to explode within the next ten minutes if you don't COME HOME AND BRING ME BEER AND CIGARETTES RIGHT NOW!

He brought me a Coke and dark chocolate."

Don't you just love it! I know exactly how she felt and I bet you do too. I'm right there with you mama. My daughter is grown and married with children of her own but reading these funny raw words reminded me of so many moments in my own child-rearing journey. The moments when I felt like I had nothing left to give, clean out of patience and a skewed perspective on this parenting thing.

Sometimes guilt threatened to drown me as I wallowed in self-pity. I even remember yelling at God and telling Him He wasn't a very good parent to me because He wasn't giving me what I deeply believed I was so desperate for. Can you even imagine? But I was desperate for answers.

Oh, to have had this precious resource when my daughter was young.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Heart is Filled With Hope October 22, 2012
By Megan
Format:Kindle Edition
As a homeschooling mom of four young boys, I know WEARY! It's closely related to OVERWHELM. The two work together closely to try and cause my heart to spiral downward in DEFEAT. Hope for the Weary Mom is exactly what I have been searching for. Each story is written with such raw emotion and honesty about the struggles, difficulties and even tragedies that can cause a mom to be weary and feel defeated. But within each story, there is a HOPE that is described...a HOPE that only our God can give. Brooke McGlothlin and Stacey Thacker have poured their hearts out here in a way that I am so thankful for. Their stories help me know I am not alone, that weariness is a part of motherhood, but it does not have to define us or consume us. God can meet us in our messes, no matter what they look like. This book has helped me to redefine what is important in my life. It's helped me to realize just how much our God wants us to rely on Him, even press into Him, moment by moment each and every day. The hope I am filled with, when I do, far outweighs any circumstance I may be in when I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars The encouragement weary moms need October 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm the full-time working mom of two rambunctious boys, and there are plenty of days I am weary to the bone. Hope for the Weary Mom is the perfect book for those times when you just don't think you have it in you to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Brooke McGlothlin and Stacey Thacker lay it all out there to minister to moms who are worn out and feeling like failures at parenting, and what a blessing their book is! It reminds me that even when I'm by myself, in the middle of the biggest mess imaginable, and at the end of my tether, I am not alone. God is just waiting for me to turn to Him and invite Him in, and allow Him to sustain me and fill me with His amazing grace. I highly recommend this for any weary mom (and if we're honest, that's all of us at one point or another!).
