A refreshing new “blueprint for motherhood” based on the wisdom of Scripture combined with the expertise of a psychologist and mother of three.
No mother has experienced the joys of parenting without also feeling the nagging doubt that she is inadequate for the task of raising her children. With every imperfection and every small failure, guilt is her accuser.
Dr. Slattery argues that this guilt is the natural product of a mother’s God-given influence over her children-a blessed reminder of her stewardship. While this is a tremendous responsibility, God would not let mothers face it alone. Using the wisdom of the Bible and her own experience as a psychologist and mother, Slattery shows how this guilt can be turned to positive parenting.
Mothers are shown how to create a personal “blueprint for motherhood.” This is both a broad understanding of their own personal approaches and beliefs and a daily action plan for dealing with common obstacles-from being too busy, to saying the wrong thing, to helping children through the inevitable rough patches in their lives.
