RATING: 4.5/5 STARS
Becoming MomStrong is a breath of fresh air to a young, new mom like myself. It was the biblical pep talk I needed to keep pressing on to serve my daughter and point her to the Lord.
St. John speaks to the reader as if she’s sitting with you over a cup of coffee – a one-one-one, Titus 2 style discipleship session. A seasoned mom of 7 kids, I appreciated her funny and raw personal stories of growth from diaper days to grandparenting, with Christ-centered encouragement every step of the way.
She was honest, loving in tone, cheering us on to pursue Christlikeness as moms in this world of much darkness. There’s an overall tone of I get you and stand firm in your faith.
Although there wasn’t much in-depth Bible study in this book, Heidi’s mission appeared to come alongside you and remind you through pointed bits of Scripture that Jesus strengthens us, not ourselves. We cannot walk this motherhood journey alone; but must do so with Him and with other sisters in the trenches.
This is not meant to be a “how to be a parent” book, but more about resting in Christ sufficiency and practical steps to managing this major responsibility of raising the next generation of believers.
I received this book from Tyndale House Publishers and the opinions expressed are my own.
