Pursue Excellence, Not Perfection

In today’s culture, merely surviving as a mama is seen as a badge of honor and hanging on ‘til “wine-o-clock” a goal to be strived for.  

As a daughter of Christ, you have been called to be more than an average mama. Pursuing excellence doesn’t have to be unsettling but it will take focus and a desire to parent well according to God’s grace and for His glory. 

Mama-of-ten Abbie Halberstadt offers advice, encouragement, and scripturally sound strategies seasoned with a little bit of humor to help you embrace the challenge of Christlike motherhood and raise your children with love and wisdom.  

Mama, you are worthy of the awesome responsibility God has given you. Now it’s time to start believing you can live up to it.
