Testimonies

“This afternoon I felt completely inept at mothering my children. I felt like a failure, I felt frustrated, I felt like they were conspiring to see who could make Mom lose her mind the quickest. I felt attacked by the three small people in my home and I let them know it. Then I went to my room and cried. A few hours after I’d managed to pull it together, apologize for my crazy lack of emotional control, and get the little ones to bed, I sat down and opened my computer. I soaked in Brooke’s words and I felt a fresh batch of tears form, not from a feeling of inadequacy, but from the knowledge that I’m not alone in this struggle to maintain emotional control. I felt encouraged, blessed, and renewed through the practical wisdom, spiritual insight, and biblical principles shared throughout this book. This is a must-have for all Moms who feel overwhelmed with the emotional toll of motherhood.”

“Brooke loves God and is passionate about sharing Him with others. Her confidence in Jesus’ work on the cross and His love allow her to be vulnerable with her readers and pull back the curtain on some of the uglier moments of motherhood. If you are a mom who has felt exhausted, frustrated, incapable, discouraged, alone, or helpless, you will relate to Brooke’s personal accounts of losing her temper, saying the wrong things, and generally feeling out of control. But Brooke doesn’t leave you there. She offers practical, Biblically based tips and encouragement to develop self-control and deal more effectively with trying situations. You will end this book feeling like you just had coffee with a dear friend, one who makes you feel understood, hope-filled, and ready to re-embrace your calling as a mom with a few more tools under your belt.”

“Reading Brooke’s book was like a glimpse into my own life. As a fellow boy mom, I often find my emotions and noise level rising to match those of my strong-willed sons, and nobody wins when I do that. This book was a timely reminder that I can choose each day to give over control of my emotions to my Creator, and when I blow it, come right back to Him to start over with His loving grace, mercy, and forgiveness. I will be drawing inspiration from this book often.”
