“Brooke McGlothlin doesn’t gloss over the hard truths of motherhood or provide quick fixes for our parenting failures. Instead she offers something much more meaningful. Brooke walks us right through the hard truths of motherhood so that we will more deeply treasure the beautiful truth of the Gospel and, as a result, be transformed into Gospel-centered moms.”
—Jeannie Cunnion, author of Mom Set Free
“Gospel-Centered Mom is a must-read for every Christian mom who constantly doubts that she is succeeding at motherhood. Brooke cuts right to the heart of what most moms wrestle with day-to-day, and she invites readers in like old friends engaging in an honest conversation with a cup of coffee in one hand and a Bible in the other. This book is chock full of applicable Bible verses and heartfelt stories that meet moms right where they are and gracefully unpacks both the hard truths and beautiful truths that moms need to accept and embrace. This book eased my mama heart, encouraged me to be a stronger advocate for my children, and taught me practical ways to keep God at the center of my parenting and daily life.”
—Ashley Willis, coauthor of 7 Days to a Stronger Marriage
“I’ve watched this message beautifully played out in Brooke’s life long before she wrote these words on the page. She isn’t saying these things because they are popular; she is saying them because they are true. Brooke is the perfect person to remind us that being a Gospel-centered mom drives us every day to our true source of strength: Jesus. I believe this book will bring a message of freedom and hope to moms everywhere.”
—Stacey Thacker, author of Fresh Out of Amazing
“Brooke’s warmth and authenticity draw you into each story she shares. Through her honesty you connect with her. Her struggles are your struggles. But she’s not throwing a pity party about the trials of motherhood. In Gospel-Centered Mom, Brooke challenges her readers to embrace their insufficiencies and accept Jesus’s enough-ness. She argues against striving and offers rest in Him. Motherhood isn’t for wimps. Brooke’s book is a dare—a dare to keep the Gospel at the center instead of our kids or ourselves.”
—Rachael Carman, homeschool mother of seven, RachaelCarman.com
“As moms we often look at the lives of our children and wonder, Are we doing this thing called motherhood right? In Gospel-Centered Mom, Brooke McGlothlin, using the truth of God’s Word, reconfigures the definition of who and what we are to be. When we direct our energy and focus on Christ first, our roles as mothers flow from that place of fullness—a redirection we all need.”
—Lynn Cowell, Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and author of Brave Beauty
“This book is like a compass for moms, offering practical direction as we journey forward in faith, trusting and living from the truth of God’s Word, not getting lost in our fading feelings, passing circumstances, or moments of struggle. With vulnerable stories, Brooke echoed my fears and feelings of inadequacy in motherhood and pointed my heart back to the fundamental truth that I will indeed never be adequate, but God always is—and He is with me.”
—Francie Winslow, author and speaker
“Mothering is not a spectator sport. It’s messy, filled with stories of failure and loss, faith and hope, mistakes and triumphs. Brooke McGlothlin’s Gospel-Centered Mom is a revelation for every woman who’s convinced she’s not enough for the job. We will never be smart enough, godly enough, or patient enough—because we’re not meant to be. Our lack reveals our need, and Brooke writes honestly about the hard and beautiful truths of motherhood. She gives practical teaching and conveys deep theological concepts in an easy-to-comprehend manner. If the calling of motherhood has left you feeling empty, this beautiful book is guaranteed to fill you up and give you hope.”
—Kate Battistelli, author of Growing Great Kids and mother of Grammy award–winning artist Francesca Battistelli
“Motherhood has been so much harder than I ever imagined. Reading Brooke’s words helped me realize I’m not the only one to feel that way. Her message of moving past me and always toward Jesus and His Good News is exactly what I need as I navigate life as a mom. I’m grateful for the truth I was reminded of in Gospel-Centered Mom: the hope of the Gospel is enough for me, for my children, for all of us.”
—Erin Mohring, cofounder of the MOB Society and Raising Boys Ministries and writer at HomeWithTheBoys.net
“Brooke’s honest, transparent approach to Gospel-centered parenting is incredibly refreshing. Moms need to hear the truth even when it hurts, and Brooke is the perfect person to deliver it as she shares humbly from her own experience raising hard-to-handle boys. I am grateful for Brooke’s obedience in sharing what we need to hear over what we want to hear. After reading Gospel-Centered Mom, I feel like I just finished a much-needed coffee date with a precious friend.”
—Monica Swanson, author and writer at MonicaSwanson.com
“If you’re looking for answers about how to be a perfect parent, this book is not the one you’re looking for. But if you want to know more about how God uses parenting to do the deep soul-level work of changing you, Gospel-Centered Mom can help. Giving keen attention to what’s happening inside us as mothers, Brooke unfolds God’s greater plan to parent us in the midst of our parenting. Down to earth and practical, this book will help you connect Sunday truth to the rest of your busy, busy week.”
—Hannah Anderson, author of Humble Roots
“I feel like Brooke McGlothlin is a kindred spirit I have yet to meet. She’s been doing for mothers of boys through the MOB Society what I’ve been seeking to do for mothers of girls through Secret Keeper Girl. You’ll find a dozen ways that this book re-anchors your parenting to God’s Word. She brings the practical theology of the Scriptures alive!”
—Dannah Gresh, best-selling author and creator of Secret Keeper Girl

I wish I had read this book 10 years ago! I have long struggled with feelings of failure and inadequacy. But God's been bringing me on a journey, showing me His grace and His good plans! -- and this book is helping pound nails into the coffin which contains the title "loser mom" inside it!
Through Gospel-Centered Mom, Brooke McGlothlin gives us a great relief in her gentle, relatable, and humorous reminders, that all we really need to look at, is what has already been written in scripture. We are enough because He is enough. Instead of resting in my abilities, I rest in His strength. Brooke's words have helped me shift my lens from my well-intended self focus to be everything, to fixing my eyes and ears solely on Him. It brings a peace to these exhausting and wonderful days, and a change in my attitude as I no longer feel responsible for the world, when I am set in His freeing truth.
