Publisher's Summary

Hope for every mom who needs an escape - not from motherhood, but from the things stealing your joy

Motherhood often looks like bottomless piles of laundry; a sink full of dishes; sleepless nights; and unshowered, nonstop, endless days. If that's all there is, then no wonder "Grumpy Mom" sometimes sneaks into your heart and home. 

If you can relate, you're in good company - Valerie Woerner gets it and has experienced Grumpy Mom more often than she'd care to admit. In Grumpy Mom Takes a Holiday, Valerie shares what she's learned so far about sending Grumpy Mom packing and embracing a joyful, intentional motherhood that is so much better than you thought possible. 

As you journey with Valerie, you'll be inspired and equipped to find energy in the most unlikely places, pursue your own dreams, be set free from mom guilt, feel content despite unfinished to-do lists, spend purposeful time with God amid the daily chaos, and discover more joyous moments of motherhood. 

So take a holiday from Grumpy Mom, and enjoy life as the mom God made you to be.

Good book, Terrible Narrator

I really want to love this book, but I can’t even get through the first chapter because the narrator’s voice is so annoying. She sounds like she’s reading a cheesy romance novel. I love Val and this narrator does not capture her tone AT ALL. What were they thinking picking this reader?! Super disappointed, because from what I can tell, it was going to be a really good book. I wish I would’ve bought a hard copy instead of wasting an audible credit. If anyone knows how to exchange, I’d love to read it and update my review to the 5 stars it probably deserves.

I'll love this book, but in paper format!

I love following Valerie Woerner and know her content is truth! Pre-ordered this audible and I can barely make it through the first two chapters! I'm so disappointed. The narrator does not match Val's personality. After a few minutes of listening I checked to see if this was an actual person narrating her book. I'm running out to get a paper copy because I know this book is must read!

Love this!

This book is so refreshing as a Christian. I often begin to read Christian based books, especially in regards to mommas right now. I am sometimes disappointed because they end up lacking Biblical advice, and more so that mommas advice. The scriptures referenced are spot on as encouraging or gut punching. I love the prayers! “Clipped” each of them so I can reference. Thank you for something we all need to hear and fully understand.
