My Other Name is Mom

This book is not a child-training manual. It does not offer more ways to discipline, more things you ought to be doing, and showcase every place you’re failing. My Other Name Is Mom meets you where you are in your mothering journey and offers hope and encouragement. Written by a mother of young children, this book is incredibly honest about the joys and discouragements of training and caring for children.
It begins by laying out the biblical foundation of the importance of being a stay-at-home mom and explores ways our feministic culture may influence our thinking. Though there are many rewards in being a mom, motherhood is not consistently fun and easy. Sometimes it’s tough. Sometimes we get stuck in the exhausted moment and have trouble staying focused. We may feel guilty for our inadequacies and for not loving our role more. But being a mom is not primarily about having a good time.
Mary offers realistic encouragement for dealing with worry, mommy guilt, supermom syndrome, housekeeping-overwhelm and more
