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

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.
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!
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.
