From the Back Cover

If you have ever forgotten to pick up your kids,

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

Jill Savage in No More Perfect Moms gets honest—all mothers struggle. We fall short of our own standard of excellence, which causes us to feel insecure about being the perfect wife with the perfect kids, perfect husband, perfect home, perfect friends, perfect marriage and perfect body . . .

This Perfection Infection attacks when we compare our insides to others outsides. No More Perfect Moms speaks to the root and reality of the insecurities mothers feel, and it provides The Antidote.

No More Perfect Moms will help a mom:

o   Change her unrealistic expectations to realistic hopes

o   Give grace and love to her husband and children even during struggles, and discover the beauty of grace when she stops judging herself and others

o   Find freedom from disappointment when she embraces her real family, her real challenges, and her real, but imperfect, life

I originally thought this book would be more about parenting, but I was delighted to find out that it is about much more. It touches every facet of our life as a mother from marriage to home decorating with helpful solutions galore. It's time to step forward and embrace what we've all known for a long time, but been afraid to share: We're not perfect. This book helps us realize what normal really is. I love Jill's personal stories (and her tip on getting little ones to make their beds--it totally worked for my 2 and 4 year old)! This is such an easy read that even though I have 4 children I was able to read it in just a few days (but I will continue to use it for years to come). This book is a must have for expecting moms and seasoned moms alike. It includes things I wish someone had told me before I even entered this crazy, happy part of my life, but it also has plenty of tips for the more seasoned mom as well. Two thumbs up!!

For so many years moms have been led to believe that in order to do a good job raising their children, they needed to be perfect. Our expectations are unrealistic, our inspiration tends to deflate and our confidence sinks with disappointment. Debunk the myth once and for all! In Jill Savage's book, "No More Perfect Moms," she brings an authentic and genuine spirit to the mom who continues to "compare her insides to someone else's outside."

My favorite line says it all, "While we're pursuing perfection, we're missing out on the most precious parts of life."

I can hardly wait to share this incredible resource with moms in my community who struggle with comparison, fear and depression and help them develop the confidence readily available when they embrace the notion that it is really okay to NOT be a perfect mom.

Finally---a book that gets ME! I literally found myself in every chapter! It was as if author, Jill Savage, had placed hidden cameras in my heart and was filming me during the good and the bad moments. As a woman that suffers from "Perfection Infection" in regards to motherhood, this book brings such freedom and restores lost joy that can seem to happen in the trenches of motherhood. Based on scripture, based on real life transparency and vulnerability---it's just what THIS heart needed! I urge you to put this book on your MUST read list. Don't wait! Savage's books NEVER disappoint and I must say this one FAR surpassed my expectations and the bar was already set high!

Have you fallen prey to the perfection infection? Do you need the antidote to this ugly disease? I encourage you to seek the cure for the mom comparison game. It not only shares real stories of imperfect moments, but helped me see "our imperfect lives are counter balanced with a perfect God." It lead me to be honest about my emotions. To seek the One true source of perfection who challenges me to see myself through His eyes, and recognize that the Bible is my guide. "You were taught to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires... and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness" Ephesians 4:22-24.

The book focused on: God's love and grace as the source of strength for becoming who He designed me to be. It challenged me to embrace humility, confidence and grace rather than pride, insecurity and judgment and to recognize that when I seek to be the `perfect mom': I am comparing my insides to other people's outsides or to media that is airbrushed to perfection. It encourages me to share authentically with others that life is imperfect. But it's okay to embrace the imperfect as the character building life God has given me and pushes me to LOVE it!

As a believer, I love that Jill's wisdom was authentic and biblical. She gave practical advice and you feel like she's having a cup of tea, chatting with you as you read her thoughts and you wonder, how does she know me so well? A great book for women to rethink life and love every moment of it!

No More Perfect Moms is a great book to read individually or with a group. Jill Savage is very down to earth, she shares her parenting, relationships and marriage issues.These are some of the quotes I love from the book: "If we'll allow it, God will use our children to smooth our rough edges and strengthen our character." "There are no perfect kids...just unique ones, who make mistakes along the way." "Motherhood is the ministry of availability."

Every mom should read this book, it will make you laugh, think, and say so I am not the only one! She uses stories from her life and from others that have gone through raising children. Plus there is what she calls antidotes, to help change the problem/issue and Bible scripture to teach and encourage with.

I like how she breaks down and uses 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

In the book she talks about many issues mom's face in their day to day lives. One area, motherhood as a ministry of availability or interruptions! We all know life with kids is unpredictable, right? "We need to embrace "what is" instead of "what could have been"."So let's change our perspective! I also like what she says here "I've come to see many of these not-planned for moments not as interruptions but rather as God's appointments."

She talks about being an introvert and how scary it can feel initiating friendships. I love the truths she applied to her situation.
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness" 2 Cor 12:9
"I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength" Phil 4:13
