Are You a Mom Believing a Lie?
I love when I receive a box in the mail with books inside for me to review. I was especially excited to unpack Lies Moms Believe and how the Gospel Refutes them by Rebekah Hargraves. I couldn't wait to see what scriptures she used to bring light to the dark lies I have believed during my own motherhood journey. I don't know a momma alive who hasn't dealt with some form of guilt when it comes to raising her babies. I also don't know a momma alive who hasn't battled with at least one, if not most, of the lies Rebekah covers in this page turner.
Lies About Motherhood
Lies About How God Views Us as Moms
Lies About How We View Ourselves as Moms
Lies About Our Children
Lies About Parenting Choices
The thing I love most about this book is Rebekah uses Biblical truths to debunk the lies we believe. For example, what if I told you that momma guilt isn't of God? Because God is not a God of condemnation. (Romans 8:1, 31-34). Or what if I told you to stop saying, "I am enough," because, without Jesus, none of us are enough. Wow! Doesn't that make you want to read the whole book?
It's not just her opinion or thoughts on the matter. It's truth we can savor. We live in a world where pop culture is the norm as we stray farther and farther away from the truths of God. This book brings us mommas back to the Bible to answer all of our questions about how to mother.
