Many women struggle with being mothers. The great joys of parenting are hindered by harsh self-doubt and a chronic lack of physical and emotional energy. In MOMMY POWER, Sheila Schuller Coleman helps women understand that while they really don't have the power or strength to handle the demands of motherhood alone, they don't have to. Mommy strength, Sheila says, comes from asking God to lend some of His, knowing He will never fail to provide. God will enable anyone who asks to become a powerful mother who loves strong, forgives strong, and models a strong faith.

"A supermom is not a mom who does everything right, nor is she a superhero who rescues her children from every hurt in life. A supermom is just a mom who loves her children and is there for them."
This little book is a treasure that will help young mothers to realize that they don't need to be perfect, they don't need to accomplish everything that society demands, and the best way to accomplish this is to become the daughters that God wants them to be.
Filled with practical and timely tips from her own experience of raising four boys, Sheila stresses the importance of taking care of yourself, making sure you get enough rest, and most importantly ... making time for your personal relationship with God. She also includes some awesome prayers that any mother can relate to, even on the really bad days.
