No More Perfect Moms by Jill Savage Book Summary

If you’ve ever forgotten to pick your kid up from soccer practice or accidentally worn two different shoes to the grocery store, this book is for you. Being a mother is not for those who display symptoms of the “Perfection Infection.” There is simply no such thing as a perfect mom. And there are no such things as perfect kids, perfect bodies, perfect marriages, or even perfect meals.

no-more-perfect-moms-coverWith refreshing honesty, author Jill Savage exposes some of her own parental shortcomings with the goal of helping mothers everywhere shelve their desires for perfection along with their insecurities of not measuring up to other moms . Jill delivers some much-needed realism as she explains why we need to stop comparing our insides to other people’s outsides.  She challenges every mom to exchange her vision of being a “perfect mother” for God’s beautiful grace in order to learn to love her real, but imperfect, life.

No More Perfect Moms Book Teaser:

Inside I begin to think thoughts like, “I don’t measure up. I’m failing as a Mom. My kids don’t act like her kids. My house doesn’t look like her house. My body doesn’t look like her body. My husband doesn’t help like her husband does. What is wrong with me?

Do you ever feel this way about your own parenting skills? Is there really no such thing as a perfect Mom? I know that I feel like this quite often and can not wait to read No More Perfect Moms by Jill Savage.

This book will probably be the best book that I read in 2014. It is about so much more than parenting. It addresses the issues of comparison, grace, humility, expectations and exchanging perfection for reality. We do not need to lower our expectations but CHANGE them. This book has done more for my mental health than anything I’ve read in a log time.

This a very encouraging, uplifting, at times humorous book. It frees us from the tireless, pointless seeking of perfection. There are no perfect moms, children, marriages, friendships or homes. We have a perfect God; perfection can be found in Him.
