“More Than A Mom! How Prioritizing Your Wellness Helps You (and Your Family) Thrive” by Kari Kampakis | Book Review

What if taking care of yourself is the first step to helping your family thrive?

If you’ve parented long enough, then you’ve learned firsthand why your personal wellness matters. You’ve felt the pain (or consequences) of devaluing yourself. Whether your wake-up call came from a diagnosis, a breakdown, an issue with your child or spouse, anxiety, or simply feeling depleted and numb, it most likely unveiled this truth:

Mothers are humans too. We require love, compassion, rest, and renewal. Taking care of our needs strengthens us and equips us for the road ahead.

In More Than a Mom, bestselling author Kari Kampakis offers a practical, approachable, and attainable framework to stay on a healthy path. You can take your kids only as far as you’ve come–and since their strength builds on your strength, you must take time to focus on you. More Than a Mom is about unleashing God’s power in your life and standing on timeless truths that will help you:

  • know your worth and embrace your purpose,
  • build strong, uplifting friendships that you can model for your children,
  • quit the negative self-talk and make peace with your body, and
  • learn to mother yourself by resting and setting boundaries.

The world shaping your children is more callous and complex than the world that shaped you. Kids need to be stronger, smarter, and more rooted in what’s real. Empower your son or daughter by tending to your heart, soul, body, and mind. Give them a vision of a healthy adult–and know that as they launch into the real world, they will build on what you started.

My Thoughts on the Book

More Than A Mom is a perfect read if you’re a mom feeling numb, exhausted, and defeated. As moms, we can’t fill from an empty cup, and this book encourages and reminds us that we are loved, needed, and worthy of care and attention.

This book takes you through practices ways we can turn our focus back to Jesus, as it is in Him that we can truly live out our callings as moms. It has ten chapters that offer a framework to stay on a healthy path. They encourage action toward creating a balanced life. They inspire self-reflection and hope. As you blaze towards wellness you will start to set a positive example for your children and encourage them to also invite Jesus into their journey.

“In short, it is our job to turn around and empower those behind us.”

“More Than A Mom” is an excellent resource for finding Christian guidance as a mom. I enjoyed the reflection questions at the end of each chapter and thought they provided a fantastic biblical view of motherhood. This book was a great reminder that “God is with you, God is in you, and God is for you. He can help you become the mother and giver you hope to be – and the human you deserve.”
