About the Book
What does a weary mom need? What will help her not only keep going in her life and work of motherhood, but enjoy it?
While being a mom is one of the most rewarding jobs, it is also one of the hardest. For all its joys, motherhood can leave us weary as we pour ourselves out for our children and wonder where we’ll get the strength to serve another day. If we’re honest, we can become exhausted by the constant call to tend to our family. We can even sometimes resent the posture of servanthood it requires. We may get the actions of motherhood right, but many times, our hearts are off.
As mom and author Kristen Wetherell experienced these things first-hand in the work of mothering, she wondered, “How do I go about the weighty and wonderful calling of motherhood not simply as a servant, but with a servant’s heart–-a humble heart?”
Instead of offering a parenting plan or a pep talk or a list of things you need to do to be a better mom, Humble Moms offers you exactly what Kristen needed in seasons of struggle: biblical meditations on Jesus, who reveals to us what servant-heartedness looks like as the walking and talking embodiment of humility. As you journey along with Kristen through the book of John, soaking in the entire life and work of Christ (his incarnation, life, ministry, death, resurrection, ascension, and return), you’ll find that your life and work as a mom is sustained in the process.
In our exhaustion as moms, Kristen points us to the true Sustainer of our souls, the loving Servant who has tended to us in both hand and heart, and the only One powerful enough to grow us into women who reflect his humility in our daily work of motherhood.
