What if you could sit down with a wise, experienced mom-someone who has dealt with her child being bullied, who has seen the impact of permissiveness, who has been forced to depend on God for every single day, and still talks with grace and compassion? Marina Slayton can tell you how to write a life-changing vision statement with your family, how to break the cycle of generational sin, and why you don't have to measure up to society's oftentimes impossible expectations because she has lived it with her family of six. And with every move across the country and every illness, she has known a little deeper in her bones what it means to rely on the only trustworthy source of life, the true secret to healthy motherhood: Jesus Christ. Godly mothers have never been more crucial. In an age when brokenness abounds and cultural voices only add to the confusion, many parents-and children-feel lost. How can we avoid the pitfalls of a secular culture? How do we raise children who are healthy emotionally and spiritually? What if we're doing it wrong? Wise counsel from a friendly corner is desperately needed. Marina Slayton has spent the past thirty years walking with God and raising four kids.
From California to Bermuda, from public school to homeschool, Slayton has been there, and she's not afraid to share her mistakes, epiphanies, and practical ideas. But she doesn't stop there. Chapter by chapter, Slayton, together with her husband Gregory, demonstrates how the power of God's Word and the work of the Holy Spirit can give direction and freedom to parents who need it most. These are the real keys to being the best mom you can be.
