“Our culture puts so much pressure on moms to be perfect. Hettie Brittz reminds us that the ‘supermom’ is a myth and encourages mothers to embrace their unique temperaments and gifts as they raise their kids.” —Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family
And I thought. . . Real, Authentic Truth.  Hettie allows us moms to realize that God has blessed us by being the moms he intended us to be. 
I love the subtitle . . .
        Why You Are the Perfect Mom for Your Kids
First I wish I had been taught these truths when I was parenting. 
Second I wish that every mom gets a chance to read this book.  
As a retired preschool teacher I have seen how damaging moms can feel from comparing themselves to other moms.  
These days moms feel that they have to compete.  Compete being the 'best mom'.  And they feel their kids need to be a certain way based on what others are thinking or doing.  
Hettie reminds the reader about the truth of God's word.  
And dispels the myths of parenting.  
This book offers hope for moms.
