One word came to me time and time again as I read through the pages of this wonderful book: Complete. Jill Savage has written a spiritually grounded, totally applicable book for the mom who is right now, in the trenches of motherhood. Jill steps in as an honest friend and holds your hand as you make your way through your days. As you read you'll find your soul encouraged and your faith strengthened. Buy the book and make the time to read it. You'll be better for it.
-Susie Larson, author, speaker, frequent radio host
Even on my craziest mom days, I've known Jesus loves me, sustains me, and forgives me. But never once had I realized that he 'got' me--that He understood what a day being tugged at, called for, and clung to was like. So when Jill shows us that Jesus indeed gets how trying our lives as mothers can be, it was news to me. But just like everything else with Jesus, it was Good News! Every mom needs to read this book. Discovering that Jesus is indeed a 'Friend who understands' changed my perspective on mothering and expanded my friendship with Jesus. What a wonderful book!
-Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadeniera, mother of three, columnist for Today's Christian Woman, and author of Mama's Got a Fake ID
I laughed. I cried. I was thankful for a 'Real Mom' named Jill who took the time to encourage other moms to find a 'Real Friend' in the 'Real Jesus.' Every chapter was a treat to read! Dive into the pages of this book and revive a friendship you may have had for days, weeks, months, or years...or maybe establish a brand new one.

Jill Savage has unlocked the secret of sanity for mothers worldwide! I agree with Jill that the Real Jesus is the one vital relationship that makes all other relationships work well.

From the Back Cover
Tired of feeling like no one understands? Look no further.
What does Jesus know about the everyday life of a mom? Plenty! Jill Savage, founder and director of Hearts at Home, introduces the real Jesus to real moms. Through chapters that examine key behaviors and decisions Jesus made during His life on earth, Jill brings those lessons right down to the tiring, laundry-filled, sticky-fingered days every mother knows.
Between the chapters are interactive vignettes that provide brief, refreshing glimpses into real, messy, busy lives. In Real Moms . . . Real Jesus, Jill continually reminds the reader that Jesus is not an unattainable deity, but a Friend who truly understands.
