How Are You Feeling, Momma? (You Don't Need To Say, "I'm Fine."): Authentic & Encouraging Psalm Reflections on the Many Emotions of Motherhood by Shelby Spear and Lisa Leshaw is an engaging book that speaks about the challenges of motherhood. The parenting journey is not that easy and every mother has her share of ups and downs during the various stages and phases of growth of their children. Though each one has their unique parenting road, there are many common issues they all face, challenges they all encounter, and struggles they all endure. There is a universal bond all moms experience which is created through a mutual understanding of love and passion they have for their children. This book will give all moms the wisdom and understanding they require, and give them the confidence to reveal their secret struggles and sensitive issues.
Motherhood is a beautiful experience and I like the two different views about a topic that is so relevant. The 31 short reflections take readers into the inner lives and emotions of both the authors, which are universal. Reading the experiences of the authors will give comfort to all mothers and grandmothers out there to know that they are not alone. The book is fresh and original, and the personal reflection question at the end of each chapter is good when it comes to reflecting and introspecting. The book will take moms closer to God and will help them realize that it is hard to get stuck in the muck when they focus on God and his glory. I like the authors' approach to the topic; it is different and I like how the authors seamlessly knit their two faiths into the topic of motherhood and include psalms to help moms handle motherhood more easily.
