Editorial Reviews


Which of us moms, before we had kids, didn’t swear that we’d get it right, only to find out somewhere along the way that motherhood isn’t always everything it’s cracked up to be? Equal parts encouraging and inspiring, Hoodwinked is the perfect dose of relief for any mom feeling guilty for not being able to do it all. (– Ruth Soukup, New York Times bestselling author of Living Well, Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life)

Hoodwinked reads like an encouraging letter from a friend. It is full of grace, biblical wisdom, and inspiration. Many books on motherhood leave me wondering if I’m doing it all wrong. Karen and Ruth are bravely transparent and meet us moms right where we are. This book gives us the hope and encouragement we need in the midst of weary days. (– Courtney Joseph, author and blogger at / Home of Good Morning Girls)

Karen and Ruth understand what it is to battle the voices of guilt, anxiety, and inadequacy that plague many mothers who want to give their best to their children. In this book they share life changing truths that all mothers can grab hold of, not just to survive the journey of motherhood but to thrive in confidence and joy. (– Chrystal Evans Hurst, coauthor of Kingdom Woman)

Motherhood is not a trick or trap---it’s a calling. In our culture, moms are constantly sent mixed messages. This powerful book will help mothers walk in the truth of the gospel! (–Kristen Welch, author of Rhinestone Jesus and blogger at

Hoodwinked is a clever, insightful, and much-needed resource for moms of every age! Debunking the common myths about motherhood touched the deep insecurities I have wrestled with as a new mom. It is a beautiful book all moms should read. (– Jennifer Smith, author of The Unveiled Wife: Embracing Intimacy with God and Your Husband)

If you’ve ever wondered if you are doing this mom thing right, pick up Hoodwinked for wise guidance, laughs, and assurance. You’ll learn how to tell the difference between what’s important---and what’s not---in this loving guide from two moms who have been there. (–Arlene Pellicane, author of 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Mom)

Moms of all seasons will find compassion for the demands of the journey as well as hope and inspiration for living faithfully as a mother. Heartwarming stories, soul-filled inspiration, and generous wisdom fill each page so that mothers will feel understood, validated, and uplifted. I love the ministry hearts of Ruth and Karen and know their stories will encourage every mom who reads this book. (–Sally Clarkson, popular conference speaker and author of numerous books including Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe)

Hoodwinked is an excellent source of encouragement for moms. It dispels the myths that confuse us and the lies that bring us down. I can’t even begin to tell you the many times I felt like a failure or how often I compared myself to other moms. If only this book had been around twenty years ago when I started raising children, I would have done things differently. (–Darlene Schacht, author of Messy Beautiful Love: Hope and Redemption for Real-Life Marriages)

Hoodwinked is for every mother who has ever questioned her parenting ability. Ruth and Karen, a dynamic duo, have teamed up to equip women to silence the destructive motherhood myths with the freeing truth of God’s Word! (–Jeannie Cunnion, author of Parenting the Wholehearted Child)

Oh, how I wish I’d had this book when I first became a mom! Karen and Ruth have pulled back the curtain on the lies we tend to believe about motherhood. Even more importantly, though, they have revealed the truth that will set us free. Soak in these words, recalibrate your thinking, and be hoodwinked no more! (–Jill Savage, CEO of Hearts at Home, author of No More Perfect Moms)
