Moms have been hoodwinked—tricked into believing lies that keep them from not only enjoying motherhood, but forging friendships with other moms who might tackle the tasks of motherhood differently. Hoodwinked: Ten Myths Moms Believe and Why We All Need To Knock It Off by Karen Ehman and Ruth Schwenk. There is also a 6-session video Bible study available for group or individual use. Check it out!Psst…

want to know the secret for being a great mom?

Think she keeps house like June Cleaver, cooks like a Food Network star, and actually does all of the things she pins to her Pinterest boards? Oh…and all while calmly raising her kids without ever raising her voice? Yeah….right.

Today is release day for my new book for moms: Hoodwinked: Ten Myths Moms Believe & Why We All Need to Knock It Off!

Ruth Schwenk  and I have had ENOUGH of the misconceptions of motherhood!!!

Myths such as: “The way I mother is the right (and only) way,” “Motherhood is natural, easy, and instinctive,” or “My child’s bad choice means I’m a bad mom.” These myths leave moms hoodwinked, and sometimes even heartbroken.

Hoodwinked Cover 2This encouraging, “we’ve been there” book will enable mothers to:

-Identify the ten myths of motherhood
-Replace the lies with the truth of what God says
-Forge healthy, supportive relationships with other moms of all ages and stages
-Confidently embrace the calling of motherhood as they care for their families in their own unique way

Ultimately, Hoodwinked equips mothers to stop searching for the secret and develop and embrace their relationships instead- with their kids, other mothers, and most importantly, with God.

There is lots going on today to celebrate our launch {giveaways below including an aqua Kitchen Aid mixer!!!!} I hope you’ll join Ruth and me on Blab for some weekly conversations. If you don’t know what Blab is, it is an app you download for free and then you can watch a live stream of Ruth and me talking, post questions and comments, and we will even patch some of you in via video stream to chat live as well.

  1. Hoodwinked has been so wonderful at a much needed time in my life! I have children ranging from 1 – 17 right now and my life is a bit crazy! Thank you for all the great new info!! Be Blessed

  2. I am out of town right now helping my mother whose health is failing. I love that my girls understand that while I don’t like being away from them they know that as a daughter I want to honor and show love to my mom. I love that when we talk in the morning before school they are praying for grandma and our evening talks are full of the sweet details of elementary school life. I love that they are counting down the days until I am back home with them.

  3. I love the silly! Watching my kids develope an imagination is so cool. The whimsy of being creative with how we show love is a fun challenge!

  4. Being a mom is the greatest reward of all time! I love watching them grow and learn new things, I love their different personalities, and seeing/watching their love for God grow deeper the older they get!

  5. There are more things than I can count that I love about being a mom- but I will say that I love that God uses our children to teach us about our relationship with Him. And I love the daily view I have as a mom- watching kids in their innocence, as they learn and grow and discover. I love their faith.

  6. What I love about being a mom is the constant growth, transitions and changes you experience and witness in yourself and your children. It’s beautiful and unequivocal to anything else.

  7. I love being a mom because I’m still learning as my children grow, learning that it’s so important for me to show them life is not meant to be perfect, it’s hard , rewarding ,and alot of work, it’s okay to fail and it’s okay to succeed . This book is amazing and God showed me.that I am not alone as a mother …..

  8. I love watching the world through my daughter’s “child” eyes. The innocence can be breath-taking at times. So many reminders of God’s presence in our lives.

  9. I love being a mom because I have learned more from my children than anyone. The new journeys, the good, the bad, the learning process, all of it. Through my children, I have learned to understand the true meaning of my Father’s love!

  10. I love the learning process… As difficult as it is sometimes. God is growing my character through motherhood. I love the unconditional love I get from my kids and I am being given the opportunity to learn to love like Jesus with forgiveness and acceptance.


  11. I find being a mom challenging because of my perfectionism etc, but I love my kids. They’re what I love about motherhood.

  12. Looking forward to reading the book!

    I love being being a mother because I finally have a mother/daughter relationship that I was unable to have while growing up. I love to see my daughter growing physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The unconditional love is an added bonus! ;)

  13. What I love the most about being a mom is watching these little girls learn who they are and find their wings. It’s the hardest and the most wonderful thing all rolled into one. ?

  14. Being a mother is big work and it is so worth it to stay all in because I can raise my two children through loving them and when it is such big work and I am exhausted I have new energy breathed into me after prayerful meditation
