9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom by Sue Detweiler- A Review

I have spent hours in prayer lately about this job of being a mom. There are days when I feel like a complete failure. I have questioned God as to why He entrusted me with 3 amazing children just to have me destroy them. To say that I was overwhelmed and exasperated would be an understatement. I had re-entered the world of survival mode. It was everything in me to make it through each day. 
Then, God answered my prayers in the form of an amazing book!!! 
Have you ever picked up a book and it just fit your current situation? Almost like that book was written especially for you? That was "9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom" by Sue Detweiler.  It was like a salve on an opened wound. God used her words to bring me back to a place where I realized that it wasn't my strength that I needed more of. In fact, my weakness was the perfect opportunity for God to work. The Bible says, 
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
  (2 Corinthians 2:9-10) 
That is exactly what I was reminded of and encouraged with on each page of this book.  

Sue Detweiler / 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom: Replacing My Worst with God's Best

-Find peace with your imperfections and find peace for your mistakes
