Hoodwinked (Karen Ehman & Ruth Schwenk)
Mothers will find a fresh new vision for an age-old calling as they tackle the challenges and embrace the blessings of motherhood, instead of being taken in by the myths and "Mommy Wars." Because of culture, family, friends, or lack of biblical teaching, today's wives and mothers are easily hoodwinked by a set of myths that have grown up around motherhood. Myths like:
"Mothering is natural, easy, and instinctive."
"The way I mother is the right (and only) way."
"My parenting is only as good as my child's choices."
"Serving my family is a subservient and antiquated role."
All these lies are not only damaging to you and your family, but they are also opposed to the teachings and wisdom of the Bible. In this six-session study Bible teachers and experienced mothers Karen Ehman and Ruth Schwenk have teamed up to encourage and inspire women to embrace their roles as mothers wholeheartedly yet realistically, whether they work outside the home, have a home business, or are stay-at-home moms.
