{ More than a Mom by Kari Kampakis - TLC Book Tour }



Publisher: Thomas Nelson (April 5, 2022)

Paperback: 240 Pages

What if taking care of yourself was the first step to helping your family thrive?

If you’ve parented long enough, then you’ve learned firsthand why your personal wellness matters. You’ve felt the pain (or consequences) of devaluing yourself. Whether your wake-up call came from a diagnosis, a breakdown, an issue with your child or spouse, anxiety, or simply feeling depleted and numb, it most likely unveiled this truth:

Mothers are humans too. We require love, compassion, rest, and renewal. Taking care of our needs strengthens us and equips us for the road ahead.

In More Than a Mom, bestselling author Kari Kampakis offers a practical, approachable, and attainable framework to stay on a healthy path. You can take your kids only as far as you’ve come–and since their strength builds on your strength, you must take time to focus on you. More Than a Mom is about unleashing God’s power in your life and standing on timeless truths that will help you

  • know your worth and embrace your purpose,
  • build strong, uplifting friendships that you can model for your children,
  • quit the negative self-talk and make peace with your body, and
  • learn to mother yourself by resting and setting boundaries.

The world shaping your children is more callous and complex than the world that shaped you. Kids need to be stronger, smarter, and more rooted in what’s real. Empower your son or daughter by tending to your heart, soul, body, and mind. Give them a vision of a healthy adult–and know that as they launch into the real world, they will build on what you started.

If there is a single book about motherhood and being a Christian mom, that you need to read this year, it is this one.
More than a Mom by Kari Kampakis, is just the book that I needed to read.  For a while, I have struggled with the balance of being a Christian mom, trying to raise and guide my children in Godly ways, while living in a very much chaotic and destructive, evil filled world.
It is not an easy task, it is not something I take lightly, and it has left me many nights, laying in bed, wondering what to do, replaying scenarios in my head, trying to figure out how to get around some of the information that is being pushed into their heads, on a daily basis.
Sometimes it feels like a losing battle, but that is where you need to firmly plant your feet in the word and pick your battles.
The author does a wonderful work of reminding us as moms, to take care of ourselves first.
If you're anything like me, I tend to put others first, sometimes running myself ragged in my need to make sure that everyone else is taken care of.  It's exhausting at times.
This book does a wonderful job of not only reminding us, but giving us some very interesting and informative ways to do that.
I think I will be referring to this book, many times.
