I am thrilled to share our new book study, just in time for summer!

9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom: Replacing My Worst With God’s Best by Sue Detweiler

This is our 3rd online book study and honestly – even though it is quite a bit of work, I love the community that is brought together online here as well as the Private Facebook page that is always offered.   {If you missed the last two, they are HERE and HERE – you can go back at anytime and read the book and follow along with my thoughts and discussion}

I began reading this book last week and was immediately drawn in….. I feel it is exactly what I need right now and I knew others would feel the same.

The book discusses the challenges of being a mother, and really draws into the Word of God to bring about healing in many areas that we mom’s just plain try to ignore and brush over.  The Nine Traits talked about in the book all correspond to the Fruits of the Spirit and I know I surely need more of that in my life. 

This book is for every mom – it doesn’t matter the age of your children or the stage of your parenting – we all want to be the best mom for our child but so often we can feel like the worst. Is it Really Possible to heal the hidden places of our own hearts?  Yes, with God’s help!  9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom will help you find peace with your imperfections, learn from your mistakes, overcome negative and enjoy your journey as a mom.

For those who’ve participated in my other online book studies, you understand what an online study entails which is run on a blog.  For those who are new and have never done an online book study, here are the details:

  • The online study is run on the blog here at The Confident Mom – there is nothing you need to do to sign up, but to make it easier, you may want to sign up for the blog posts to be delivered right to your inbox, but you do not have to do that.
  • It will begin on Monday, June 2nd and continue until Monday, August 11, 2014.
  • Each Monday I will post the chapter of reading for the week and my thoughts.   Throughout the week I will be on the Private Facebook page sharing thoughts, offering up questions for you to answer and just share community.  There is also a study guide included in the copy of the book, which has some questions for you to consider and journal about.  I will post more details on what to expect during the week’s posts, but I plan to post two times.
  • There is no cost to participate, but you will really only be able to participate if you purchase your own copy of the book, “9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom” by Sue Detweiler
  • Once again for this study, we will have a Private Facebook Page where you will be able to share with others who are going through the study, get encouragement as well as interact with other moms who are joining on this journey too.  This is not mandatory, just an option for those who are interested.  You can click here to ask to join.

    I ordered this book on my kindle, a sample to see if I wanted to do this study.
    I have a 6 week old baby, along with a 9,6 and ,,2 year old. I am a bit overwhelmed and though I’m longing for a quiet time, Bible study and growth, I can’t seem to find or MAKE the time.
    But I read the sample of this book, and enjoyed it so much I’ve read almost the entire book. I just realized there is a study guide in back, and I’m planning to order a hard copy to use for this study course. I’ve highlighted most of the book so far;)
    This book seems heaven sent, just for me. I’m struggling with anger issues, I “snap” easily, and was put on antidepressants after my last baby for this reason. I know that in the past, lots of time spent praying, studying Gods word and daily walks or alone time have helped SO much.
    I’ve tried to use a few devotionals the last few weeks to get myself back in the habit of a daily Bible time, but nothing has stuck or appealed to me..but now I’m so excited to start this study!!

  • I think all moms feel overwhelmed for sure….even me 🙂 I too feel this book is fitting perfectly with what I need right now and I knew others had to feel the same. I pray that this will be just what you need and that you will find the time to read and also connect with others in the Facebook group so you can feel connected and not alone. We are all in this together 🙂

  • Aubrey,
    I’m glad that the book is “heaven-sent” — HE is the ONE who knows just what we need at just the right time. I’m looking forward to going through this study with you and Susan.
    Blessings,

    Signed myself up! Timely might just be the theme! I’ve had a busy fall season with God, and cannot wait to dive into this study and see what it reveals. 3 tagers (one turning 16 today!), and a pre-teen… Frazzled… Challenged… And blessed…
