Do you ever feel like "I wish I was more like "Mary Sue" as she really is a PERFECT mom and can do it all"? How often do you compare yourself to make sure you are living up to "societys rules" for being a 21st Century Mom? Worse yet have you ever been told that you are not a good mom by a family, friend or someone else because you don't parent "according to the rules"? I have been in all 3 of these situations and each one is very discouraging to be in.
I have been privigled to be a part of a group of "Moms" who have been encouraged by a wonderful book called "No More Perfect Moms" by Jill Savage. I received a downloadable advance copy of the book and was able to partcipate in a group discussion with other moms on the Launch Team. I must say I was VERY VERY encouraged by the other moms, but I was more so encouraged the book. I have NEVER been soo encouraged when reading a book as I was with "No More Perfect Moms".
The encouragement came in the form of Validation! Validation you say??? YES! I used to strive to "be perfect" in the sight of others(mainly family) in fear of that if I wasn't doing things the way they expected me to that I would be "outcast". A couple years ago I let go of that fear and started doing things according to how I felt lead by God. I felt such a relief when I began not worrying about being "PERFECT" in the eyes of others. The way I do things for myself, my husband, my boys, my household, is soo diffrent then the way others do in their households. I was soo encouraged as I kept reading through "No More Perfect Moms" because Jill writes so much about what I have been trying to do over the couple of years. I really enjoyed the part of being a "YES Mom". How often do you want to tell your kids NO they can't do something in fear of a mess being made, others thinking "Wow she let her kids do that" or just because you didn't feel like it? I give my boys FREEDOM, as much as possible within safety reasons, and I allow them to enjoy themselves. I also stopped trying so hard to have the "PERFECT" house. I realized with being the only female in our home, there won't be a "PERFECT" home for a good long while. If someone wants to complain that my house doesn't meet their standards, let them clean! I don't mind the mess as then it is proof that we are enjoying our home!
I THANK Jill Savage for writing such a wonderful book and for giving me the hope and encouragement that I am "on track" with not being the PERFECT Mom!
