Geared toward overwhelmed moms who fear they are less-than-perfect parents, an inspirational guide offers mothers comfort and confidence, reminding them that God makes up for human weakness with his own strength.Publishers Description
Universally, mothers tend to feel they are not good enough at parenting and fear they are harming their children by not being perfect. In "Mommy Grace: Erasing Mommy Guilt," Sheila Schuller Coleman offers overwhelmed moms short but emotive stories of authentic motherhood from her own and others' experiences-foibles and all-and offers comfort by showing how God makes up for human weakness with His own strength.
Because Sheila shares lessons learned the hard way by real moms rather than giving difficult instructions for better mothering, readers will leave the book feeling encouraged rather than lectured.
For every mom who feels she's not quite up to the colossal job of parenting, MOMMY GRACE is full of hope and compassion.

|Mommy Guilt Jul 7, 2009|
|Coleman's "Mommy Grace" is a wonderful easy-to-read book for any Christian mother who is looking for a healing dose of God's grace. The book's chapters, most only a few pages in length, make perfect devotionals complete with Scripture and the author's beautiful, heart-felt poems. |
The refreshing thing about this book is the author's honesty. Dr. Coleman, mother of four, refrains from fluffy platitudes and shares poignantly from her own life experiences. Rather than a typical Christian "self-help" book, "Mommy Grace" reads like a stack of letters written from a loving, accepting friend.
One of Coleman's gifts is the ability to demonstrate to her readers how God loves us as His children by showing us, as mothers, how we similarly love our children. In the chapter "Peanut-Butter Hugs and Chocolate Kisses", she draws a picture of accepting God's mercy much like a child accepts hugs from a parent. "Children don't think to clean themselves up before they play with you or before they run up and throw their arms around you....Don't bother to get cleaned up before claiming the mercy of God. It is folly to think we can clean ourselves up, and attempting to do so just prolongs the wait to experience God's grace."
One of the most meaningful chapters to me was Coleman's "Can a Working Mom Be a Good Mom?" As a working Christian mother, I have often felt the stabs of guilt from being torn between the workplace and home. But, this school administrator/writer/educator was able to lift years of guilt from this "Corporate America" employee with her simple, down-to-earth perspective.
"Mommy Grace" would make a thoughtful, encouraging gift for any mother experiencing exhaustion, anxiety, or doubt over her parenting skills. Personally, I think it would make an absolutely ideal child's-first-birthday-gift for the mommy of the one-year-old. As Coleman so eloquently puts it, "Freedom from shame, freedom from fear, freedom to love and be loved: It comes from looking into the face of God!"
|Amazing wisdom for busy moms May 19, 2009|
|This book is PERFECT for me. I am a busy mother of 5 and only have time to read in short spurts. This book has super-short chapters with a quick prayer at the end of each. The stories/chapters will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you praise God that you're not perfect! Being a constantly guilt-ridden mom of never doing enough for my kids, my husband, my family, my church, myself, etc., this book helps me to see that God never designed me to be ALL THAT! It's only through His grace that I can make it day to day, no matter how hard I may try. Great book.|
