Description of The Passionate Mom: Dare to Parent in Today's World by Susan Merrill

Motherhood is full of uncertainty. What do my children "really" need? Why are they doing that? Is this "normal"? What can I do to help them? How can I know for certain that I am" doing this right?"

The logistics are easy. Anybody can do laundry and carpool. But what makes a mother the best mom she can be?

It's not better scheduling. Or more activities. Or less.

It is passion--the passion to teach, protect, study, and prepare her children for the future.

Great, but how?

Susan Merrill, the mother of five incredibly different children, has asked that question countless times. And she has read countless answers specific to a certain child's temperament, age, or situation. But nothing she read offered an overall approach to parenting that would enable her to say with confidence, ""I am "doing this right." She never guessed she would find a foundational plan--a reliable, universal parenting approach in the Old Testament book of Nehemiah.

In The Passionate Mom, Susan takes you on a journey through Nehemiah and into the heart of parenting. Her stories and confessions in every chapter reveal what she has learned: no mom can control her child's future, but every mom can parent well. There is a plan--a roadmap for how a passionate mom can parent almost any child, confidently.

5 StarsBuy Two Copies (one for you and one for a friend)!
This book is one you will read and want to pass forward to a friend (or if you’re like me, you will highlight almost every sentence and dog-ear almost every page of your book so you will want to buy a new copy for a friend)! Susan’s transparency, passion, and inspiration throughout the book have been helpful to me in my own parenting – to realize I’m not perfect, not alone, and am able to confidently parent in today’s world. She offers a practical, biblically based plan and sound advice for intentionally guiding children of all ages. Based on 10 “Ps” of parenting, this book leaves you inspired to teach, protect, study, and prepare your children for the future.

5 StarsExcellent
I started reading this and couldn't put it down!!! I have learned something in every chapter! The 10 P's are a PERFECT path for becoming the mother God intends you to be! I started reading through the bible this year and couldn't figure out what God wanted me to learn in the book of Nehemiah and then I start reading this book and Susan uses Nehemiah to teach about parenting! And what a perfect biblical example of caring and nurturing. Excellent book!! Buy one for yourself and a friend! Start a study and learn together!

What an amazing journey this book has been able to take me on! I constantly struggle with guilt and how I make mistakes in my parenting. I mean, who doesn't want to be the perfect parent right? I read, and read, and READ every parenting book I can get my hands on, and before I know it I am more confused and more frustrated about what I am actually supposed to do, or NOT do. My children are miserable, my husband is miserable, I am beyond miserable and this downward spiral just keeps happening. Then I read The Passionate Mom- this is real folks. Real life. It's a gentle, forgiving and uplifting guide that will help you to be the very best parent you can be! Simply put, raw emotion and real-life experience from the author reminds us that we are not alone in this parenting journey and that we all have struggles. Although I am not a religious person, Susan has taken simple religious teachings to give us a easy reminder of how to get back to the simple basics. She talks mostly about being passionate but there is such a much bigger lesson to be learned here. Each chapter made me want to go back and read it again, just in case I missed something. It's that good, get this book. You won't be disappointed!

5 StarsWow. A must read for any mom.
Wow. The Passionate Mom is truly a life changing book. I have been recommending it to other moms since the moment I started reading. And its lessons can be applied to much more than just parenting! The 10 P’s are great lessons that can be applied to anything you are passionate about. The mortar lists at the end of each chapter are great character building traits that I pray I can build within myself and my sons. This is a must read for any Mom and will be my go to baby shower gift! Love it!

5 StarsA must read for moms
The Passionate Mom by Susan Merrill is a book written for moms who are passionate to parent their children in purposeful ways. Susan's practical and biblical building blocks come from the book of Nehemiah in the Bible. There are ten ways a mother needs to cultivate as parent well: perception, pondering, passion, prayer, patience, preparation, purpose, planning, problem solving and perseverance. Each chapter outlines solid principles with Susan's real life examples, confessions and powerful encouragement to inspire moms to dare to be the parent that God has desired for them. I thought I was a passionate mom, but after reading this book I feel like I've been given the tools to really be the passionate mom I want to be. I was very intrigued with Susan's connection of how to be a mom with the story of Nehemiah. She strategically wrote step by step exactly how to embrace the high calling of a mom and rely totally on God for all that is needed. She identified so many areas that I need to work on and also addressed areas I hadn't even thought of yet like dating, computers, cell phones and social media (my kids are still very young). I was very impressed, encouraged and inspired to pursue being a passionate mom. This book is a definite must have for moms who need biblical, practical and honest truth to pursue God's desire for motherhood in their lives.
