Mommy Grace

Author: Dr. Sheila Schuller Coleman
Publisher: Faith Words
April 2009
ISBN: 978-0-446-54541-9
Genre: Inspirational/parenting

Most mothers struggle with feelings of inadequacy. We have guilt because we have a long list of things we should have or should not have done. Some moms even feel that they are harming their children by not being practically perfect.

Inside the pages of MOMMY GRACE, Dr. Coleman shares short, sometimes funny, and moving stories about her parenting mistakes, and shows how God can extent grace to us during these moments and helps us to embrace the reassurance that God offers.

Each chapter is very short, and begins with a story from Dr. Coleman’s extensive file, an inspirational quote, a Bible verse, and then a poem-like prayer. The chapters will not take long to read, maybe five minutes tops, so even if you don’t have time to sit down and read for long periods of time, you can still fit in small bits of this book, a chapter at a time.

MOMMY GRACE came out in hardcover in time for Mother’s Day, but I didn’t get to it early enough for that holiday. Still, the Christmas season is approaching, and this book will be a delightful gift for your favorite mother to find under the tree. Or a gift for anytime, for no reason at all.

MOMMY GRACE will be sure to help overwhelmed mothers everywhere, whether you are the first time mother of a newborn, or your children are kindergartners and headed to school for the very first time. $14.99 hardcover. 160 pages.
