Publisher's Summary

Motherhood is beautiful; motherhood is hard. All moms understand this paradoxical truth. Yet introverted mothers face unique challenges. When our quiet nature collides with our often loud role, frustration and guilt result. We wonder why motherhood feels at odds with our personality, and in our darkest moments fear we're simply not cut out for the job.

In Introverted Mom, author Jamie C. Martin lifts the false burdens and negative stereotypes off your shoulders, letting you know you're not alone. Your steady strength is exactly what your family needs in this chaotic world. And when you understand and accept your God-given personality, you'll discover a freedom you may never have experienced before.

Jamie shares vulnerable stories from her own life as well as thoughts from other kindred-spirit moms, helping you add more calm to your days. Her practical suggestions and creative inspiration, combined with quotes and insights from four well-known introverted writers, point you back toward hope, laughter, and quiet joy. Whether you've just realized you’re an introvert, or if you've known it all along, this audiobook is for you. It's time to honor who you are and savor life as an introverted mom.

Not for the secular or non-Christian introverted Mom

Since I am familiar with the author’s worldview, I did not expect this book to be entirely secular. Although, I currently identify as a humanist, I was raised Christian so I thought I’d give the book a chance because I am an introverted mom. While there were some general ideas for all introverted mom, the author primarily returns (in the first 4 or 5 section, that’s as far as I got) to a verse of scripture she personally finds helpful in the overwhelm she feels as an introverted mom. It got to be too much for me, so I exchanged the book. Looking for other books, I noticed on Amazon the description indicates the book is from the Christian worldview, but I don’t see that in audible’s description. Reviewing so other non-Christian mommas are aware of the heavily focused Christian content when considering this book.

Needed and Appreciated

This book was soothing balm for my exhausted, introverted soul. I feel like I not only know myself more fully, but can love myself more authentically. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and insights.

Should be called The Christian Introverted Mom

While I can relate to much of this book, I am not finding it helpful. I can't make it past chapter 4 as the author seems to have one solution to everything: faith in the Christian deity. I had hoped for something more practical.

A surprising blessing!!!

Before this book, I didn’t think of myself as an “introverted mom” - so I honestly don’t know why I even chose to read/listen to this to begin with!?
Except that God was directing me to do so!
And WOW!! I am SO GLAD I DID!!!
I have laughed, cried, been deeply encouraged and swept away with realizing that I AM an introverted mom after all!!! This book has brought GREAT COUNSEL to my heart!! I am the mom of 6 kids, and am so thankful for every chapter this book holds!! I didn’t want it to end!! I will listen to this several more times I am sure!! What ENCOURAGEMENT & FREEDOM this book has brought to my soul!!!
I would encourage every mom to listen to this, even if you THINK you’re not an introverted mom!!! You might be surprised like I was to learn more about myself as I listened....my heart melted into new levels of encouragement!!!! READ/ LISTEN!! You won’t regret it!!

I no longer feel alone

I cannot express how much this book touched my sensitive, introverted soul. As a mom to two school aged boys and an extroverted husband, I have struggled the past 10 years to figure out why I couldn't be more like other moms or wives. Learning about introversion and high sensitivity helped so much, but I still longed to figure out how to be the calm, steady mom my boys need while honoring my needs. And to help my husband understand me. This book was like the missing puzzle piece for me. I feel understood, inspired, and much less alone. Thank you Jamie, for providing this to all of us introverted moms out there. What a gift.

Understand myself better

This was perfect for learning to understand myself as an introvert and a mom and why I react certain ways. It has been helpful to know that it is a part of who I am and I need to include certain things in my life and exclude others to have the peace I'm looking for in my heart and in my home.

Connection and Understanding

I breathed a huge sigh of relief while reading this book knowing other mothers experienced extraordinary similar lives as introverts. I'm grateful that this books brings to light the naturalness of introverts and allows us to connect...that we are all created with beauty and purpose.
