The Perfect Mom

by Michelle Wilson

The title of this book is The Perfect Mom--
But I LOVE the writing between the lines:
The totally and completely perfect even when 
you feel like the worst mom ever :)

Do you ever lose you kids? Have you ever called them by their siblings names? Have you gotten cross with them? Or lost patience with them? Have you stolen Easter or Halloween candy from them? 
Do you often feel like the WORST. MOM. EVER?
Then you SO NEED to read this book!!!

Filled with Michelle's wit and humor you will realize that you are the mom your kids need-- which makes you PERFECT for them!


Do you ever try to be the perfect mother, only to end up feeling like the worst mother ever?

I have.

When I was young, I thought my mother was perfect. Imagine my devastation when I realized she was an imperfect person like the rest of us. When I became a mother myself, I was determined to be the perfect mom for my kids. However, many times the opposite happened and I felt like the worst mother ever. Here I share six such occasions where my worst-mother-ever moments really shine (like that time my friend's child asked for a salad for lunch and mine was eating cereal off the floor, or the time my daughter cut her hair into a half-mullet when I wasn’t home).

But, the truth is, even though we are not perfect women, we truly are the perfect moms for our kids. Through learning to laugh at ourselves, recognizing moments of perfection, not comparing ourselves to others, seeing God's hand in our lives, and accepting the reality that isn't only our strengths that make us good mothers, but our weaknesses as well, we can truly come to believe that we are the perfect moms for our kids. And, most likely, our own moms, imperfections and all, are perfect for us, too.

The Beautiful Balance
Is it possible to feel peace when our lives and the world feel out of control? The short answer is yes!
Trying to manage the ups and downs of life can feel overwhelming, but fortunately we're not alone on this journey. With inspiring doctrinal insights and a healthy dose of humor, author Michelle Wilson inspires readers to let go of fear and find peace, even in the midst of lost jobs, health challenges, or everyday chaos at home. In a world that seems so tempestuous, The Beautiful Balance is a sweet reminder of exactly what we can control—ourselves—and what God controls—all the rest.

Does This Insecurity Make Me Look Fat?
• Why do clothing stores hang fun-house mirrors in their dressing rooms?
• The laundry doesn’t cry when it’s not folded, so why should I?
• Can I be confident even if an elevator calls me fat?

Michelle Wilson’s humorous yet poignant insights help women examine the limitations we place on ourselves out of insecurity and self-doubt. We have faith in God, but do we know that He has faith in us?

When we see ourselves with God’s eternal perspective, we can feel confident and whole—even in our imperfection. Just think what we might accomplish if we truly believe that we are more important than we know, stronger than we realize, and extraordinary in every way.
