A Fit Mind

Letting Go of Supermom

September 27

Being a mom isn’t an easy job.  I find myself worrying how I will manage my teenagers and a new baby when he arrives.  Comparing myself to the Proverbs 31 woman, I definitely don’t measure up.

I haven’t been the perfect mom to my two oldest.   I find that I’ve slacked off greatly in the departments of spiritual training and teaching responsibility.  However, I couldn’t be perfect even if I continued trying.

Reading Letting God of Supermom, the author impresses upon us that the passage isn’t about just “one woman but every woman” meaning that the passages include a little bit for each woman depending on their role in life as either a stay at home mom, a work at home mom or work outside the home mom.  So, maybe that means we don’t have to do it all…

A mom isn’t just a mom.  She may also be a child of God, a wife, an employee, and so on.  The book is divided up into sections of tips and advice for these various roles:

  • Faith
  • Family
  • Home
  • Health and Beauty
  • Balance
  • Working

While some of the information provided isn’t new to me, it worked well with the new information to encourage me as a mom to do the things I know I should be doing — prioritize — and not be so hard on myself for what I choose to let go.

As a working mom, I look forward to referencing this book to make my life more manageable and get my parenting priorities of spiritual training and teaching responsibility met on a regular basis.

I can do this … and so can you!
