Publisher's Summary

Mama of 10 Abbie Halberstadt helps women humbly and gracefully rise to the high calling of motherhood without settling for mediocrity or losing their minds in the process.

Motherhood is a challenge. Unfortunately, our worldly culture offers moms little in the way of real help. Mamas only connect to celebrate surviving another day and to share in their misery, rather than rejoice in what God has done and to build each other up in hard times. There has a be a better way, a biblical way, for mamas to grow and thrive. 

As a daughter of Christ, you have been called to be more than an average mama. Attaining excellence doesn't have to be unsettling, but it will take committed focus and a desire to parent well according to God's grace and for his glory. 

M Is for Mama offers advice, encouragement, and scripturally sound strategies seasoned with a little bit of humor to help you embrace the challenge of biblical motherhood and raise your children with love and wisdom. 

Mama, you are worthy of the awesome responsibility God has given you. Now it's time to start believing you can live up to it.

Sharing with every mom friend I have!

I can’t explain how grateful for, convicted and inspired by, and in love with this book I am. As a new mom, it’s the perfect combo of inspiring and butt-kicking that encourages me to choose the hard but good over the easy. Thank you, Abbie, for writing it. P.S. Abbie’s voice is so beautiful, it made the book that much better!!

This mama is on fire!!!

Absolutely LOVED this book! I love all of Abbie’s sound advice and solid understanding of biblical motherhood. It is so refreshing in a world on amuck, when all moms are exhausted and don’t understand where they’re going wrong. This book will help you shed the world and become a joyful mom. Do yourself, and your kids a favor and give it a try. God loves you.

Recommended to all my friends

The best book I have read! This book is relatable, yet encouraging. As a stay at home mom who is new to the homeschool journey, this has been a wonderful resource The author ties in so much scripture that it has been such an inspiration to me to get into the word more. She speaks raw truth with practical wisdom to implement Christlike parenting! Love it!

Very encouraging & fruitful

Love Abbies view on motherhood, very biblically based. Lots of good homework at end of chapters to help retain information.
Keep it up Abbie!

Wow! Should be required reading

I want to give this book a million stars. I loved that Abbie speaks the truth of God’s words straight to the heart of a mom in a way that’s inspiring and uplifting and not condemning. This book is so wonderful and will be my go-to mama gift from now on.

Listen now !

I am so blessed to have listened to this book as a young faith-living mama. Having the original author narrate her own book makes for an exciting listen since she reads it as she wrote it. It encouraged, exhorted, and built up this first time mom with another on the way. I encourage you to get this book if you find yourself to be on the outskirts of mainstream society when it comes to raising your children and are feeling alone.

Must Read for Mamas!

As a Christian mama of two small children, this book was a must read! I am so happy I was able to read the physical book but also listen in my car on longer drives with Audible. I can't wait to give this book to a friend.

Spoke to my soul

I really do appreciate this book. I came across it at a time in my life that I am seeking to improve my role as a mother, and wife, and business owner. I am looking forward to reading/listening again, as well as share it with my friends.

I Barley Got Past Chapter 1

The narration of this book was a downfall for me. it's entirely too fast for more liking. It felt as if the narrator was just trying to get through the book & I just couldn't connect. I know it's my preference as I enjoy a little slower pace & a feeling as if the narrator is sitting in my living room chatting with me. From what I did hear I understood & and appreciated. I eventually had to turn the book off. I will have to purchase a hard copy to finish this book. I only gave 1 stars because I honestly couldn't rate it overall or the story.
