Today Becky Keife joins us to talk about something I’m pretty sure every mom relates to…whether she says it out loud or not. 🙂 It’s a question that I know I have wrestled with at various times in my parenting journey:
AM I THE RIGHT MOM FOR THE JOB?
I mean, surely another Mom could do a better job with these crazy boys!?
Becky, who was raised mostly by her mom and alongside only sisters…was caught off guard by her three “spirited boys”. She felt inadequate and unqualified for the job. But God used her experiences to stretch and teach her, and He is now using her story to encourage others! Becky’s new book, No Better Mom for the Job, is a must-read if you struggle with self-doubt, loneliness, or mom-overwhelm. (isn’t that all of us!? :))
NOTES FROM THE SHOW:

I love how Becky and her husband nurtured their marriage when the kids were all young! And I also love Becky’s wisdom for overcoming anxiety when you look at the future. (so good!)
