A Note from the Author

About ^Hearts at Home

JILL SAVAGE is an author and speaker who is passionate about encouraging ^moms. She is the author of six books including Real Moms...Real Jesus, Professionalizing ^Motherhood, My Hearts At Home, and Is There Really Sex After Kids? Featured ^in Focus on the Family, Today's Christian Woman magazine, and Family Life ^Today, Jill is the founder and Executive Director of Hearts at Home, an organization ^designed to encourage, educate, and equip women in the profession of motherhood. ^ Jill and her husband, Mark, have five children and make their home in Normal, Illinois.

Drawing from the life of Christ and illustrated by examples from ^her own life, Jill shares practical insight for mothers. She reminds us that in ^both the daily routines and the crises of life, we have a true Friend who has walked ^in our shoes and enables us by His grace to follow in His steps.
- Nancy ^Leigh DeMoss, author, Revive Our Hearts radio host

One word ^came to me time and time again as I read through the pages of this wonderful book: ^Complete. Jill Savage has written a spiritually grounded, totally applicable book ^for the mom who is right now, in the trenches of motherhood. Jill steps in as an ^honest friend and holds your hand as you make your way through your days. As you ^read you'll find your soul encouraged and your faith strengthened. Buy the book ^and make the time to read it. You'll be better for it.
-Susie Larson, author, ^speaker, frequent radio host

Even on my craziest mom days, I've known ^Jesus loves me, sustains me, and forgives me. But never once had I realized that ^he 'got' me--that He understood what a day being tugged at, called for, and clung ^to was like. So when Jill shows us that Jesus indeed gets how trying our lives as ^mothers can be, it was news to me. But just like everything else with Jesus, it ^was Good News! Every mom needs to read this book. Discovering that Jesus is indeed ^a 'Friend who understands' changed my perspective on mothering and expanded my friendship ^with Jesus. What a wonderful book!
-Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadeniera, mother ^of three, columnist for Today's Christian Woman, and author of Mama's ^Got a Fake ID

I laughed. I cried. I was thankful for a 'Real Mom' ^named Jill who took the time to encourage other moms to find a 'Real Friend' in ^the 'Real Jesus.' Every chapter was a treat to read! Dive into the pages of this ^book and revive a friendship you may have had for days, weeks, months, or years...or ^maybe establish a brand new one.
-Kendra Smiley, conference speaker and ^author of the PARENTING LIKE A PRO series (parentinglikeapro.com)

Jill ^Savage has unlocked the secret of sanity for mothers worldwide! I agree with Jill ^that the Real Jesus is the one vital relationship that makes all other relationships ^work well. Every mom will find solid practical help and hope on the pages of ^Real Moms...Real Jesus. If every mother owned this book there would be many ^more happy moms, kids, and husbands!
-Pam Farrel, bestselling author of ^Men are like Waffles, Women are like Spaghetti, 10 Best Decisions a ^Parent Can Make and Got Teens?
