What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

Hooray for motherhood!  Well, that's how most of us would like to feel, but sometimes, as a mom, it's hard to get up.  Sharon calls us to rise up--but we don't have to do it in our strength.  Being a Great Mom provides practical tips and adds verve back into mothering.
-Patsy Clairmont, Author and Speaker

In an age when motherhood is not valued as it should be, those women who do take on this noble role should be called, "Blessed."  Sharon Jaynes has written an encouraging book that provides  practical information for all mothers, whether their children are two or 20.  Using biblical principles and entertaining anecdotes, Jaynes has created the "how-to-manual" moms didn't receive at the hospital before they left with their newborns.  Jaynes has provided just the motivation and inspiration moms need to become women of Proverbs 31.
-Beverly LaHaye, Founder and Chairman of Concerned Women for America

Next to my deepest desire of one day hearing the Lord say to me "Well done" is my desire that my seven children will rise up and call me blessed.  In her book, Being a Great Mom, Raising Great Kids, Sharon Jaynes offers practical ways that enable and encourage us mothers to be all that the Lord wants us to be so that we will one day not only hear Him say, "Well done," but our children will rise up and call us blessed.
-Gigi Graham Tchividjian, Author and Speaker

Parenting can be a lonely and difficult experience.  You need a friend who has been there--someone who loves you enough to encourage you, someone who tells you the truth.  Well, I have very good news for you.  Sharon Jaynes is the friend you've been looking for.  Her heart is warm and her wisdom is straightforward.  This is a wonderful book.
-Robert Wolgemuth, Author, She Calls Me Daddy

Read an Excerpt


On February 4, 1984, my world changed forever. After twenty-three and one-half hours of blood, sweat, and tears, of heave-ho-ing, of pushing and pulling, Steven Hugh Jaynes, Jr., came screaming into the world, and I became . . . a mother. But somehow, in the bustle of leaving the hospital two days later, someone misplaced the owner's manual. After all, this was my first child, and certainly he came with instructions! An eternity seems to have passed since the day we drove home from the hospital with Steven, who was lost somewhere in his oversized car seat. Now he is the one driving, and I'm the one strapped in the backseat. It has been an incredible ride! I never did locate that owner's manual, but I've discovered helps along the way. I've learned from godly women who have gone before me, from fellow travelers who are journeying down the road with me, and from my heavenly Father, who enfolds, instructs, and encourages me.
