    Can a mother be at the top of her profession without sacrificing her family or her faith? Susan DiMickele may be a partner in an international, prestigious law firm, but beneath her navy suit and around the corner from her legal office, she morphs i

    Susan DiMickele may be a partner in an international, prestigious law firm, but beneath her navy suit and around the corner from her legal office, she morphs into the mother of three young children. As legalese gives way to homework, bedtime stories, and sibling rivalry, the roles of Lady Lawyer and Devoted Mommy collide, offering a funny yet poignant look at the practical, ethical, and spiritual struggles faced by professional working moms. Chasing Superwoman: A Working Mom's Adventures in Life and Faith provides a much needed dialogue about the complex lives of women who must live out a vibrant faith amid the unprecedented demands placed upon their daily lives.

    Recognizing that there are no simple answers to merge these sometimes mutually exclusive roles, DiMickele seeks to provide an honest look at the spiritual struggles facing working mothers who are raising young children. She encourages women who balance these demanding dual positions to embrace their roles and trust God to provide strength and wisdom for their journeys. Examining issues ranging from school involvement and shopping excursions, to perpetual exhaustion and church involvement, DiMickele reassures working moms that God accepts them with grace, just as they are. She also encourages them with the knowledge that they are not alone and that God will provide teachable, faith-building moments amid their difficult daily challenges. DiMickele looks through the lens of events that shaped her own spiritual journey and captures many compelling, universal moments that any working mom will recognize.

    Chasing Superwoman reflects the day-to-day realities of working mothers of school-age children as they struggle to teach their little ones to know and love God. Juggling a schedule that leaves precious little time to rest in or reflect on God's promises, DiMickele recognizes that God is ultimately the One in control of her life as well as the lives of her children. As terrifying as it is to realize that no amount of organization will remove the stresses within the role of a working mom, it is reassuring to know that Superwoman is not the ultimate goal. Superwoman doesn't need Jesus. DiMickele and the women who read her book not only need Him; they are buoyed above the demands of their daily lives by His grace alone and are able to reflect His love back into the lives of their children and co-workers.

    My Review:

    In this wonderful book, Chasing Superwoman, Susan DiMickele boldly shares with her readers her exhausting struggle to maintain a high profile career in law while being a mom of three children. I found myself wondering how she even does all that she shares in her book without being completely exhausted. I know of plenty of women who have become pros at juggling family and jobs with apparent ease but I found myself winded after reading this book.

    I for one, know that I would not be able to balance her life in both world while struggling to find time to fit God in wherever she can. Yet this is a very realistic book to gain insight on those moms who really do try and do it all. It's fun and challenging at times to wonder where she gets her energy and I truly enjoyed this book.

    I received this book, Chasing Superwoman from B & B Media Group for my honest review and would rate it a 4 out of 5 stars.
