Momnipotent: The Not-So-Perfect Woman's Guide to Catholic Motherhood by Danielle Bean.
Bean, well-known as the editor of Catholic Digest and writer of several popular books, is also the homeschooling mom of a large family. She wrote Momnipotent for "unhappy, struggling moms. It is also for those of us who, in moments of restlessness, boredom, or the frustration of seeing other women who appear to 'have it all,' wonder if what we are doing now can legitimately be considered a life's work."
Bean offers encouragement to mothers, beginning with acknowledging our feminine genius as explained by Pope St. John Paul II. She discusses our beauty - both inside and out, our emotions, our desire to be perfect, our tendency to sometimes smother, to give too much, and to try to do too much. She explores our tendency to compare our lives with others, our inner strength, and our need to learn to trust God and others. Bean also offers True and False quizzes with suggestions on what you should do depending on your answers.
This is a very down-to-earth book that will leave you nodding your head in agreement, laughing and crying. It offers support and good advice. It is a great book to read alone or with other mom friends.
