Are you a tired mom, feeling like you are running on empty?
Or maybe you know a tired mom who could use some encouragement?
Does the comparison game of parenting styles or cute family pictures on Facebook eat at your core?
Even if you’re not a mom, do you find yourself falling into this trap?
Do you feel like you are just not the right mom for the job?
Or maybe not the right woman for the roles and responsibilities that fill up your time?
On this episode of the More to Be Podcast, I chatted with Becky Keife, about her debut book, No Better Mom for the Job, and what she has learned through the sanctifying role of not only being a mother, but really about being a child of God. If you are in need of some encouragement and food for the soul, then this latest episode is for you.
