This weariness trickles out in anxiety, exhaustion, and even anger. And it feels like anything but freedom. But each page of Jeannie’s book is entrenched in grace. It will bring not only freedom to each mom who reads it, but it will bring hope—hope that she can be wonderfully, gracefully set free.”

“Ahhh! Parenting can feel so overwhelming, but Jeannie Cunnion’s words fill me with the sweet relief of understanding that it's not about what I do but about what God has already done. Cunnion gets it: the worry that you're screwing up your kids, the feeling that you can't breathe. She's been there, and in Mom Set Free, she offers insight and wisdom to lead us into fresh air.”
Melanie Dale, author of It's Not Fair and Women Are Scary

This book will not only encourage you, but point you to Jesus so that you, in turn, can point your children to Him.”
Karris Hudson, field director/vice-president at Danita's Children/Hope for Haiti Children's Center
“While raising my four sons, I have read my fair share of books on how to show God’s love and grace to my kids, all the while beating myself up for my imperfections and feeling I have fallen short of being the mom I ought to be. The funny thing is, I don’t think I even realized this was happening until I read Mom Set Free. Thank you, Jeannie, for sharing God’s heart, not just for kids, but indeed for us weary moms. Reading this book has been like a full-body dip in the most refreshing stream of God’s love and grace.”
Monica Swanson, writer at Monica Swanson--The Grommom

In MOM SET FREE, you will be reminded of simple truths it's easy to forget in the daily grind of parenting. But just because they are simple, doesn't mean they are easy. It's hard to lay down the things God hasn't asked us to carry — mostly because we often crave the control carrying all the things seems to give us. But there is freedom in operating from the exact place God has each of us and letting others do the same.
It's hard to understand much less embrace the truth that God is sovereign in our children's lives — because deep inside, we really want to be the most important relationship they have. But as we loosen our grip on that idea, we find a welcome truth — not only does God love them far better but he loves us that way as well and we can fully trust him with our children's lives and with our own.
Jeannie invites us to step closer to our Heavenly Father and, as we do, offer our own children a beautiful example of abiding in Christ.
If you are wrestling with doubt, fear, or insecurity as a mom, this book will be a whisper of grace, peace, and hope. I highly recommend it!
I was given an advanced copy of Mom Set Free, but have ordered more copies to give to friends!
Us mom's feel so overwhelmed with a pressure to do it all and be it all for our kids. And, if we're not the uber chic, trendy, Pinterest mom, who ALWAYS has the whole #momming thing down, then we're not a good mom at all. At least, that's what we're led to believe about ourselves.
What if there's a way of being a mom, being a parent, that looks completely different from that? What if there's a grace-filled way to live out our lives, only seeking what's most important. Filling our mom hearts up with God's love, goodness, and grace, and living out of an overflow of those things instead?
Mom Set Free explores how we can simply be the best mom for our sweet little ones, and create transformed homes filled with that same love, goodness, and grace, by not succumbing to the pressures society places on us, but instead by grasping who God truly is to us, and what He has to offer us. Are you ready be to set free, dear momma?
Thank you Jeannie Cunnion for pouring your heart out on these pages, and sharing with us something truly beautiful to cling to! I simply can't find enough great words to say about this book!
