Do you wonder if another mom would do a better job in your shoes?
Becky Keife knows the ups and downs of motherhood and how easy it is to feel inadequate. But she's learned along the way that it doesn't work to just do more or try to be better. True confidence comes from the One who made you a mother.
If you're tired of trying to muster up enough creativity, joy, and patience by your own sheer grit; if you long to be known and seen, for your struggles to be validated, your blessings to be celebrated, and your soul to be strengthened--lean in. Through these pages you will discover the power to:
· Cultivate deep friendships that enrich your mothering
· Understand the unique wiring of you and your child
· Grow a vibrant faith in and through the demands of motherhood
· and so much more!
Whether by birth or adoption, God made you the mom of your kid on purpose for a purpose. And He wants to bring new life to your motherhood and fresh hope to your soul.
