Motherhood stretches you to do seemingly impossible things. Some days you feel as if you’re in a race to the finish line, stumbling over everything in your path—including Legos and dirty laundry!

Kara-Kae James knows how overwhelming motherhood can be. As she writes, ”When we come to the place where we think that we have failed—this is the moment when God’s Word and motherhood intersect…. From a painful season, God showed me there was more to motherhood than simply getting through the day.”

In Mom Up, Kara-Kae shares four themes that impact how she follows Jesus and parents her kids:

  • Intentional Motherhood
  • Genuine Community
  • Refreshing Rest
  • Embracing Chaos

With practical ideas for building relationships with other moms, grace-filled Scripture reminders, and a healthy dose of humor, Mom Up helps you step out of survival mode and into the abundant life God has for you and your family.
