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. Download the app and follow me { @karen_ehman } to be notified when our Blab sessions will begin.

  • What do I love about being a mom? I love that feeling when you see your 3 year old stand up and sing in church for the Christmas program and suddleny in that instant you feel the true meaning of “takes your breath away”. Then it happens again when he’s on the kindergarten stage accepting his end of the year award. And then again and again countless times throughout the years as you proudly watch your little boy grow into an amazing young man!
    Watching them grow, it’s truly amazing, it has been my pleasure!
