Ditch Pressure for Freedom in Christ
Any mom who has tried to create a godly home for her family knows it doesn't happen automatically. Through books, blogs, and Instagram accounts, culture asserts that good moms must follow certain standards and abide by certain rules if she want what's best for her children. She must do everything she can-and she must do it all just right.
Following the suggested steps and recommended rules may seem best, but what if we're missing the point? This is something Maggie Combs came to realize while seeking to be a good mom to her three sons. Though the world around us may have critical expectations and rules for mothering, Christ instead calls moms to an intimate, abiding relationship with a triune God. In Motherhood Without All the Rules, Maggie identifies the main "rules" moms today often feel pressured to follow and counters them with Gospel truth. You'll discover how the character of each member of the trinity practically impacts your role as a mom. Join Maggie in forgetting the rules, so that instead of being a good mom, you grow to become a holy mom.
Maggie Combs is passionate about helping moms recognize their imperfections as opportunities for God's unending strength. She is a mom of three busy boys and blames their unending energy and solid build on her tall, active husband. Maggie grew up dreaming of motherhood because she assumed it would increase her social life. She thought wrong. Now Maggie uses her stolen moments to write about the down and dirty realities of motherhood, occasionally getting these thoughts corralled online on Instagram (@unsupermommy) or her blog www. unsupermommy.com . She escapes from the crazy by spending quality time with her husband...and her Kindle. Her family is currently building a new house on the hobby farm she grew up on in Lakeville, Minnesota.
