Too many mothers long for peace but despair that it always seems out of reach. The stress of motherhood overwhelms their attempts to be the Christlike mom they aspire to be. Now moms can take heart: no matter where they are on their parenting journey, every mom can experience the power of Christ in a personal way that will radically change their lives, their outlook, their power source, and their approach to motherhood—and every other relationship as well.

April Cassidy, author of The Peaceful Wife, returns to discuss how the peace of Christ can be found in the next stage of life. Rather than writing a how-to book on parenting, The Peaceful Mom is a guide for moms to lead by example.

She first shows readers how to have their hearts and minds right with the Lord and to experience peace with God as their new normal. Then from that place of spiritual communion, April teaches moms how this peace helps them relate to their children in healthy, godly ways. Through their own flourishing relationship with Christ, moms can model God's peace in their family dynamics even amid everyday challenges and stress. Cassidy offers tangible, detailed steps to spiritual growth that any mother can follow.

For moms who are ready to receive the healing and transformation available to them through Jesus, this book will open their eyes to see all of life—not just parenting—from a fresh, life-giving perspective.
