Description

This book isn't about raising kids. It's about raising moms.

"This book isn't about raising kids. It's about raising Moms. . .," says author, speaker, blogger, lunch packer, and sidewalk chalk artist Becky Kopitzke. In a Pinterest-perfect culture, you've likely sensed an accelerated pressure to measure up. Then you either weigh yourself down with guilt or become resigned--desensitized, even--to this so-called failure. The Supermom Myth--with humor and grace, yet all the while maintaining a firm grasp on reality--aims to empower you to become the mom God created you to be. With 8 chapters, each personifying a "dirty villain" of motherhood, including The Grouch on the Couch (Anger), Worry Woman (Fear), and The Calendar Queen (Busyness), Kopitzke offers a gentle reminder to rest in the super power of our grace-filled God.

Becky Kopitzke, Author

Kopitzke, Becky: - Becky Kopitzke is a freelance writer, speaker, singer, dreamer, potty trainer, lunch packer, snowman builder, and sidewalk chalk artist. She lives with her handsome husband and their two young daughters in northeast Wisconsin, where a pink indoor trampoline fills half the once formal living room.

Becky welcomes fellow frazzled moms to connect with her on her blog, Time Out: Devotions for Moms (beckykopitzke.com). There she shares weekly devotions encouraging imperfect moms to follow a grace-filled God. Becky is also a regular contributor to For the Family (forthefamily.org) and The MOM Initiative (themominitiative.com), two inspiring resources for Christian families. Beyond writing, Becky serves in women's ministry and worship arts at her regional evangelical church and volunteers often at her daughters' school. And sometimes she serves cereal for dinner.

Becky believes parenting is one of God's greatest tools for building our faith, character, and strength--and it's not always pretty. Her writing offers solidarity, encouragement, and validation for fellow imperfect moms, for the purpose of pointing our weaknesses, blessings, and victories to God.
