I Need Some Help Here! Launch Giveaway Week 3

BookLaunch-Banner SO… with everything going on we sort of skipped a week. Sorry about that! We DO have a winner for Week 2’s giveaway of the Kindle Fire- Glory! Hope you enjoy it Glory!


Time for another giveaway to celebrate the launch of I Need Some Help Here! Did someone say they need a cup of coffee (or three cups, depending on how many times the kids woke you up last night!)? I think it’s time for our Keurig giveaway. Keurig I have heard such hopeful feedback from my readers including this one from a reader from New England:

I just need to share – up until about 2 1/2 years ago, I thought parenting was going really pretty well. My husband and I were successfully raising a wonderful son who, other than talking alot in school, really didn’t give us any trouble. He was smart, athletic, handsome and, mostly, respectful (well, he did talk back a lot). Only child. Then he dropped a bomb on us. He didn’t “believe in God.” Now, his father and I are devout, practicing Catholics. Catholic schools, both of us. The whole nine yards. Our son, went to public schools until 9th grade, when we enrolled him in Catholic high school. Coincidentally (?), that is the year he gave up his belief. When I tell you I struggled, oh you can’t even imagine. I thought I’d never make it through a Mass again without crying. What did we do wrong? Why weren’t my friends having this problem? How can I enjoy my son knowing he’s turned away from something which is at the very core of me? etc. etc. Kathi Lipp, I can’t tell you how much you and this group have helped me. It sounds so cliche, but it really does help to know you’re not alone. It has helped me to be able to turn this one over to God. To keep reminding myself, with your help, that God loves him even more than I do. I pray daily that he’ll find his way back to his faith, but I’ve been able (for the most part) to start trusting that this is a path. Thank you for writing your book.

#103: The Bad Moms Club

It’s easy to put your worth in your children’s failures and successes. In this week’s episode, Kathi and guest, Erin MacPherson, author of the Christian Mama’s Guide series, discuss being a part of the Bad Moms Club. While most moms are striving to be the best mom she can be, she is usually riddled with doubt, guilt and worry. If this sounds like you, take heart, you aren’t alone. 

Kathi and Erin discuss ways to get through this journey of motherhood from birth through young adulthood. Some of the highlights include:

  • “Don’t judge your parenting on one bad day!”- One bad day doesn’t undo all that parenting that you’ve poured into your kid/s.
  • “Find your people that will still be a fan of your kid even when he/she doesn’t make the best decision.”- When our child has royally messed up, there is something about another adult who you admire seeing something besides “future adult delinquent” in your child that will give you hope.
  • “Don’t put your faith in the sheep, put it in the Shepherd.”-  We base the outcome of our lives on the actions of our children. Wrong. Our hope is only in God.

If you are in need of some encouragement through your mom walk, this one is for you. After you listen, comment below on what struck a cord with you the most. You’ll be entered to win a copy for you and a friend of Kathi’s new book, I Need Some Help Here! Help for When Your Kids Don’t Go According to Plan. In fact, two winners will win a copy for her and a friend!
