“The difference between a good mom and a great mom is her supreme confidence in her supreme God. – The Confident Mom, Joyce Meyer

Joyce Meyer is back with The Confident Mom, a follow up to The Confident Woman and The Confident Woman Devotional.

Joyce states that God wants us get our minds off our own natural flaws and inabilities and look towards him for assistance.

In The Confident Mother, Joyce shares stories of mothers (as well as others) in the bible, as well as her stories of motherhood and scripture for daily situations. Joyce wants mothers to stop condemning themselves for not being perfect. Don’t torment yourself if you miss a game or don’t make a batch of brownies for a party.

Meyers covers the tougher parts of parenting, such as discipline. Meyer explains it’s about focusing on God, not our own personal preference. Don’t exasperate your children by coming down hard on them. Keep your children under control without being controlling. And again, it comes down to your walk with God as well as theirs.

Meyer’s goal is to give mothers confidence in raising their children. Meyer wants to let mothers know what important leaders they are in their children’s lives. Mothers will make mistakes, but God is merciful. We can pick up and move on with forgiveness. As mothers, we are not alone; God is with us and will lead us in raising faithful, emotional strong & confident children.

I, personally, speak with people every day who are raising someone else’s child -- Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, etc. Confident Mom speaks to anyone and everyone raising a child.

Jodi Carlisle reads The Confident Mom in a gentle, enlightening tone. It’s the caring, understanding tone even a mother needs to hear when life is harried, mistakes are made, energy is dissipating, and no one else is there to assist. It’s beautifully done.

Carlisle also narrates three other Meyer titles: Power Thoughts Devotional, You Can Begin Again, and The Approval Fix.
