Publisher's Summary

Today’s mothers are struggling, though it's not for the reasons most moms tend to think. We’ve been conditioned to believe our inadequacy is the reason we can’t seem to “keep up” or enjoy mothering more, but nothing could be further from the truth.

We aren’t failing as mothers. We’re mothering within a culture that is misleading and inadequately supporting us. Motherwhelmed is a deep, yet lighthearted exploration of the messy frontier of modern-day motherhood we’re all struggling to navigate.

With compassion, realness, and rich storytelling, Beth Berry:

  • Illuminates the mind-sets and narratives keeping us feeling overwhelmed, disempowered, anxious, isolated, and riddled with self-doubt
  • Provides the perspectives and tools needed for mothers to rewrite their stories and reclaim a sense of wholeness
  • Shares from her 25 years as an idealistic, passionate, all-in mother of four daughters
  • Reminds us of our worthiness and reframes our importance

This is not a book about parenting. It’s a book about mothers, our greatness, and how important it is that we thrive. It’s about untangling ourselves from the stories that are keeping us trapped and deconstructing those we’ve outgrown. It’s about daring the lives we’re here to live and, thereby, giving our children permission to do the same.

Until we begin to organize our lives around not only our children’s worthiness but also our own, mothers everywhere will continue to bear the brunt of cultural pain and dysfunction. This matters because we cannot be the changemakers we’re meant to be while so heavily burdened.

Self help book that's a life saver for all mothers

This audiobook kept me riveted the whole way through, couldn't stop listening. The author shares her personal journey that is so relatable to mothers living in a tribe less community less society. Sharing self care techniques and teaching us to slowly mother ourselves is the message of this book. To be a good mother is to take time for ourselves and not be guilty. Beth brings to light the overwhelmed mothers that we all are and helps us realize that it's ok not to be perfect and loving our kids is sometimes just enough. Love this book will hand it to all my mother friends.
