The supermom myth--with humor and grace, yet all the while maintaining a firm grasp on reality--aims to empower women to become the moms god created them to be. With 8 chapters, each personifying a "Dirty villain" of motherhood, including the grouch on the couch (anger), worry woman (fear), and the calendar queen (busyness), Kopitzke gently reminds moms to rest in the super power of our grace-filled God.
