Publisher's Summary

Lysa TerKeurst, mother of five and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, knows about the bouts of "mommy stress" that come with parenting and managing a home and a life. From her own experience and conversations with hundreds of other women, Lysa shares how mothers can release the guilt they sometimes feel and stop blaming their parenting skills every time a child does something wrong.

  • Let kids live with the consequences of their bad choices
  • Simplify life to create breathing room
  • Quit comparing themselves to "perfect" moms
  • Turn to God for support, guidance, and patience

Overflowing with practical ideas, short Bible studies, and plenty of encouragement, this inspiring resource will help moms to realize that - with God's wisdom and mercy - they can experience peace and satisfaction while raising their kids.

Rerelease of The Bathtub Is Overflowing but I Feel Drained.

Refreshing with Biblical truths to my mama heart!

This book was excellent. It provided Biblical context and practical, life examples on mothering. I believe it gave great depth on the whys, hows, and huhs of mothering as well as steps to change. I would highly recommend it!

Thank you Lysa

Thank you Lysa for being so brave and honestly sharing your experiences. I feel comforted knowing that although my life isn’t perfect, and i am not perfect, i can still strive to grow in Christ and love myself even when i fail.

I should have known better but it sounded good

this is like, a bible study....the sample did not indicate that, which seems intentional and kind of underhanded imo. I'm not religious and was not looking for this type of material. i guess "Christian audio" should have given it away and I did notice it, but thought maybe there may be a few references to christianity, which I'm not against by any means, its just not my thing. it sounded interesting and relatable though so I thought I'd give it a go... not impressed at all.

Healing words

This book in it's entirety spoke to each fiber of my soul. I am going to listen to it over and over, journaling along the way (something I have never done)

It's teachings like this that make me believe God is looking out for me and that I am never alone.

Thank you for making a difference in my life, mothering and walk with God.

I now know how important my time one-on-one with Him is.

Excellent for the Mom that needs a refresh!

I have 5 children and needed these reminders. It's so easy to get overwhelmed and forget the truth, hearing it is so useful! Excellent advice!
