In this episode, I’m exposing the lie that children are really expensive with the author of the book Lies Moms Believe: And How the Gospel Refutes Them, Rebekah Hargraves. In the book, Rebekah discusses 32 common lies that moms believe and while we don’t get to all of them in this chat, she does break down the lies that we need to be Pinterest perfect, that mom guilt is something we have to live with and that our children are nuisances.
You may also enjoy the hearing the truth that you are not a bad mom either!
