Gospel-Centered Mom

I love a good Christian nonfiction, and I definitely love a good Christian mom book. I like a book that makes me feel like somebody else is in the same boat I am, that reminds me (preferably subtly, through real-life stories + scripture rather than sermons that imply that the author always has it together, unlike me) of my childrearing goals, and that inspires me to inspire.

Gospel-Centered Mom hits the mark on all of those counts… but it’s kind of meant to be read as a group study and reading it alone didn’t really do it for me. I could tell that having lively discussion over each chapter would have been great but that just thinking about it all on my own didn’t make me all that excited.

I still liked the book and am definitely interested in reading it in a group setting, but I’m not sure I recommend it on your own. I think there are still a lot of worthwhile stories and lessons through the whole book, but I think it’ll be more meaningful with at least one other person.

I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this (completely honest) review.
