Slay Like A Mother: How to Destroy What’s Holding You Back So You can Live the Life You Want ~ Book Review
I must admit that there are days when I question myself as a mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, etc. There have been times where I have compared myself to other moms I know. I try as best as I can to be the “perfect mom”. But honestly is there really a mom who is truly perfect?
I smile whenever my friends tell me how flawlessly I am always in control. I can see how they would think that. My boys are always on time to school. All three of them have music lessons after school and one of them also participates in sports. We hold a Bible study group once a week in our home, I have weekly doctor appointments, and I also take online classes. Plus the time I dedicate to keeping this blog rolling along.
I may appear to have everything in control, but inside I suffer from both depression and anxiety. Daily I fight against the feelings not being enough. I always criticize myself whenever I miss something on my to-do list, and stress myself out. If you’re anything like me then this is a book you’re going to want to read.
Reading Slay Like A Mother I realized that I am not alone in how I think or feel. That many women struggle through the same issues I do. Most importantly I learned that I need to be kinder to myself, and not to stress myself over things that are out of my control. I also need to learn to give myself more “me time”.
The author had me crying and laughing. I liked that I could relate to the stories that are shared, and the exercises throughout the book. But what I liked the most was how the author made it seem like she was helping me along during these exercises. Slay Like A Mother is a definite must read!

In her book, Slay Like a Mother: How to Destroy What’s Holding You Back So You can Live the Life You Want, Wintsch helps fellow moms recognize the seven ways they are self-sabotaging their own lives and happiness, and shares advice on how to stop, including:
• Adjusting your sky-high expectations.
• Dropping the mask you’re hiding behind, when you say everything “is fine” and it’s not.
• Recognizing that motherhood is a struggle, but that suffering is optional.
• Changing the narrative of that negative voice inside your head.
• Breaking the habit of comparing yourself to other moms.
• Learning to say “no” to others and “yes” to yourself.
• Getting comfortable with the present moment instead of worrying about the future.
This sounds like a great book to read. I think that most of us ladies can relate to this book.
I think most of us, to some degree, deal with this kind of thing, mother or not. I know I do.
I think I need this book. I have a wonderful adult daughter and an awesome teen son That annoying voice in the back of your head is definitely something I am constantly fighting..
