Today is the official launch of Becoming MomStrong by Heidi St. John, otherwise known as The Busy Mom. I’ve been privileged for the past several weeks to be part of a group of women chosen to study through the book with Heidi and to help promote it. I can’t say enough good about it!
“The God-breathed, unchanging, inerrant, comprehensive, life-giving Word of God is our only source of truth! The moment we decide that we can cherrypick which parts of the Bible are true and which parts are not, the battle is lost. Don’t forget: we are at war with an enemy we can’t see, let alone defeat, unless we’re armed with the spiritual insight offered in the Bible. The battle for the hearts and minds of our kids is raging all around us. It’s why we need to adopt a wartime mentality—we are literally at war. Real war, real enemy. To win, we must hold everything up to the light of God’s Word and engage the culture with grace and truth.”
Do you love that as much as I do? Ladies, this is what we need today. No more “3 cozy alliterated points and a warm and fuzzy poem”. We need truth. Heidi knows how to lovingly dish it out.
I recently spoke at a Ladies Retreat and I told the women that there are few authors I trust enough today to confidently endorse in their ability to rightly divide the Word of truth. Heidi is one of them. She doesn’t add to the message of God’s Word to water it down, and she doesn’t subtract from it to soften it for those who prefer a more politically correct approach. She skilfully applies Truth and speaks to the cultural issues moms are facing today….because this ain’t your mama’s parenting gig!
There are good resource books and not-so-good ones. Then there are those few which go well beyond providing good information you’d want to keep handy…and they reach inside you, and lay a printed finger on your heart. This is that kind of book.
I’ll let my Amazon review speak for me:
The most empowering parenting book I’ve ever read! This is not a book full of formulas to “fix your kids”. It is refreshment and balm for moms, which enables their hearts to be fortified so they can be ready to fight this battle from a place of courage and confidence! Heidi knows how to bring big ideas to the bottom shelf so they are practical and easily understood. Her writing is transparent, and she shares from experience how the principles in these chapters have strengthened her as a Christian woman and mom. I’m a pastor’s wife, blogger, and women’s event speaker, and I have to say this book is great reading for any lady in a mentoring relationship with kids, not only mothers. Learning the difference between the voice of conviction and the voice of condemnation, how to face my fears (prior to this book, I never viewed myself as fearful…now I am equipped…so I can say “Not today Satan!”), how to prepare my kids for rejection and help them suit up in defense of the gospel…these are only a few things I’ve learned from Heidi’s book. I’ve done numerous book studies with groups over the years, and I’m right now excitedly planning my own study through “Becoming MomStrong” to encourage other moms (and reinforce what I’ve learned for myself!) using this gem of a resource. Highly recommend!
By the way, today it is their #1 New Release, with 100% 5-star feedback!

If you are interested in a study through the book, I will be starting one next month, via FB Live at Diane’s Becoming MomStrong Book Study. Free…but you gotta get the book! 🙂 Join me?
