Perfectionism crushes and suffocates. Unsupermommy is more than laser-honest confessions of a young mother's angst. It's an invitation to breathe and thrive. These pages are packed with wisdom and counsel that will set you free. Learn to breathe the gospel hope for motherhood.

After battling infertility for three years, we were blessed to birth our sweet son. I knew the newborn stage would be an adjustment, but no one could have prepared me for the most challenging and debilitating fifteen months of my life to follow. From waking close to every thirty minutes for over thirteen months straight, to feeding challenges, to anxiety, to deprivation on every level, I often found myself on the floor, rocking myself and asking, God why? What did we do wrong? Why was it so hard just for me, while others were flourishing? How was this connected to your plan, Jesus? Unsupermommy answers the questions I so deeply wrestled with then and still do today. Maggie Combs shares her whole heart and brings you back to the truth on every single page. She helps us remember that we aren't self-sufficient and shouldn't want to be, that we have a Father who first loves us intensely and is using this season to grow an irreplaceable reliance on a fountain that never stops giving. Momma, if you have questioned the Lord in this season of motherhood, please pick up this book and be encouraged, challenged, and blessed.

What mother doesn't want to be the best mother she possibly can? I'm not a mother, but I've watched this up close for almost thirty years now as my sweet wife has poured her life into our five children, so I can honestly say it is an amazing thing to see the sacrificial love of a mother. But along with the joys of motherhood, Maggie Combs honestly identifies one of the dangers that accompanies this great joy: the temptation to be the perfect, supermommy who falls into the comparison trap that leaves her deflated and battling despair over everything that falls short of the perfect ideal she had in mind. My hope is that God will use Combs' honest insights to rescue mothers from the pitfalls and free them to experience more of the joys of motherhood, to the glory of God!
