Publisher's Summary

Every mom can identify with the feeling that they’re in a race to the finish line every day, stumbling over everything in their path - including Legos and dirty laundry!

Kara-Kae James knows how overwhelming motherhood can be. As she writes, “When we come to the place where we think that we have failed - this is the moment when God’s Word and motherhood intersect.”

In Mom Up, James shares four themes that impact how she follows Jesus and parents her kids: intentional motherhood, genuine community, refreshing rest, and embracing chaos. With practical ideas for building relationships with other moms, grace-filled Scripture reminders, and a healthy dose of humor, Mom Up helps listeners step out of survival mode and into the abundant life God has for them and their family.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Words that really touch the soul!

EXACTLY what my mama heart needed. Kara-Kae's words were filled with biblical truth and experience and left me feeling refreshed with more tools to be a Thriving Mama who can live in abundance!

Love

As a mother of a 3 year old little girl and 13 month old identical twin boys, who were born 2 months early, this was a breath of fresh air for me. So many days I do feel like I’m drowning. I really enjoyed this book and it helped me have a different view of motherhood and the challenges I’m facing. Definitely recommend!

Everything I was hoping this book would be.

This book was everything I had dared to hope it would be. It was like sitting down with a trusted friend who understands exactly where I am in life. I was inspired, encouraged, and refreshed by this book. I am not one to listen to books over and over but I will listen to this one again. Great narration by the author. You won’t be disappointed.

Great book!

If you are tired of just surviving and motherhood this book is for you! The perspective is a godly perspective and it reminds us that we don't have to just survive motherhood. We don't have to wait for our children to be older to find happiness. Raising God's children is a blessed gift and one that we should thrive in every day.

Great Book For Parents!

This is a great book for moms that are stuck in survival just trying to get through the day/years. While the book is obviously completely written to moms, I (as a dad) think there is a lot that dads can learn from this book that would really benefit your parenting and marriage if you let it spark honest conversations between partners. Definitely a recommend. Plus it’s got short chapters that allow plenty of the stopping points that parents need!

Just what I needed

This book was perfect, just what I needed to hear as a mom of 5 soon to be 6. There were so many time I found myself saying, "Wow, she's been there too!" it made me feel that I am not the only mom who has to step back sometimes and breathe and ask God for help. I would highly recommend this to any mom no matter the season of life you are in. Thank you Mrs James for being so open and honest about your life. With doing that you have helped this mom!😊

Beautifully read and beautifully written

I love a good southern, Christian women. Especially one who can speak their reality and testimony. And relate to us in a positive way and remind us just how present God is and can be in our lives.

inspirational

This book really hit home on a lot of key points in my life. the author is so understanding and compassionate to what you may be going through at that point in your life or what you may have been through. She helps you see that mom life is something to be truly grateful for and not just trying to get through life with on wishing the next stage of mom life would happen already. I really loved this book and encourage all mom's to read this great book.
